    Hi,
    You have the expansion slot covers on the top front bays installed or did you mod a filter on the top front ?

    I moved the bottom filter up top, since I dont have a fan down there. Here is the front with the panel removed. Ignore the dust, tired of fighting it

    Hi,
    Yeah I made better filters
    Pretty easy used some black metal gutter screen and taped some old speaker cloth on one side.
    You can tell it picks up a lot of micro dust front and top filters are done like this
    You might can tell it's time for cleaning

    Hi,
    Thanks
    Yep bottom too
    Didn't have to use screen on it since the case has it's own grid holes so the filtering doesn't get sucked into the case like the front will
    So I just taped up where the fans weren't at for like the psu I left open and taped filtering there.

    Well worth the little bit of time for me it was a must do too many radiators which are a) useless clogged with dust b) a pain to clean.
