My case was getting alot of dust inside(particulary in the cpu fan) so i decided to put a filter in the cpu airfeed tunnel.
What do you need:
A exhaust filter(i used one from the stove)
A scissor

You need to cut the filter a little bit larger than the size of the fan/place were you are gonna put it or else it will became very hard to get the screws back in.
After cutting it , put the filter in place and screw it back in.
And now you have a getto dust filter!!!!
I only did this to the case tunnel, but next week ill be doing it to the intake fan (it should a little bit trickier) ill post pics then.

Yeah...

How about going down to Kragens and buying a pleated auto air filter? Cut out the material flatten it and use that. Almost no restriction.

That would do well....Even some of the thinner furnace filters will work....

My cpu temp did not increasce a º.
Nor the other components temp did.
The air is still flowing pretty welll.
I just did this because the air filters that i saw being sold at pc stores wore bad, and looked cheap, and also letted all the dust pass trough!

yeah, those muffin fan filters are garbage. Stop large particles and hair, that's about it.
