Top of the Fractal R6

Just wanna know are people do something with the free space around the edges of filter on top. Is there a problem with this - i mean getting dust into the chassis? People use some method, or leave it this way?
Can i buy some pretty mod specifically for this if needed?

Greetings

Wouldn't you need the top off that case simply because HOT air rises quite easily and you won't even need to install extra fans in the top area?

Due to warm air rising suspect dust will not make it's way down into your case innards, simply due to the current air cycle that shall be occurring.

If he has negative air pressure it will suck air in any gap in the case,While positive air pressure would blow out the same gap.

That is why he needs to follow the good air pressure guide, suggested here on OCN by our resident case experts.

Good quality 2 or 3 front fans add that fresh 'positive' pressure inside the case, hence you don't get any negative pressure to allow dust seepage from on top.
