Yep I have multiple sets of those filters and a few won’t stick no matter what.
I’ve been using masking tape to keep them attached.

my demciflex lost magnetism long ago. I only use the two bottoms & the giant roof one these days. Dust inside an STH10 wasn't ever much of fan issue for me, even with 8 fans blowing in.

My experiences with dust is to make your case air-tight with door gaskets (thin) and make sure there is more fans sucking air than exhaust fans so the case has a positive air pressure.
Also, I use/used Modright mess filters for the fans. I tested these for a few years and they do work. I also tried "fish-filters" from fish tanks and they work very well. The only problem with fish-filters is they have to be secured to the fan. I tried a sandwich fan grills with the filter in-between but its hard to replace. The only other option is to use Velcro (one side only) on the chassis and the fish-filters will automatically stick so you pull them off when they become dark and replace with a new one and it’s simple. Make sure you separate the fish-filters apart so they are thinner, don't use the full thickness.
Fish-filters can be sandwiched between the fan and grill with Velcro and the fascia plate for the front and Velcro on the bottom of the chassis for fans on the bottom. All exhaust fans need not any filters.
The modright mess filters are nice and you can take off 4 small screws to clean the filters while the 4 other screws are still attached to the fan.
In the 5 years doing this, I never had to clean my caselab case. Just a year or 2, had to replace the fish-filters and clean the modright mess filters depending on the dust in the house.

That's it! I totally forgot I can go that option.
yes, I have industrial strength Velcro, but I also have something even slightly better than Velcro and more clean, as Velcro tends to loose up a lot of dust and fibre when you undo them.

They are pricey, but they are great for custom jobs and it can hold a lot of weight.

I just need to cut enough long strips to make a nice rectangular seal along the DEMCiflex filter magnetic strip and done.

That is great and this is the first time I saw this. It looks very strong and it maybe hard to seperate. I have this industrial velcro and if you stick them together, its really hard to seperate. So, when i use them, I cut them very narrow to its easier to remove.
Good luck and let me know how it works.

agreed, I prefer dual lock over classic Velcro.

that's a good idea, I may have to do that, as I've gotta giant roll of dual lock.. Just gotta find my stash of demagnetized filters.

I use the demciflex filters on all intake fans on my S8. Yes, they need cleaning regularly and stifle airflow but as I have pets they are necessary to stop my computer filling with hair! It's easier to keep under control than with compressed air for my situation.
