Default Side panel windows

Ok, so I have a side panel window, and it's tinted, from nzxt... Is there a way to keep it less dusty? I think it's because of static?

Do you have any dust filters on your case? Also, something I've tried in the past is keeping positive air pressure in the case by having a bit more intake than exhaust air. By doing this, it really cuts down the amount of dust you get in your case. Personally, I had alot of success with it and rarely needed to clean my case. If you have a place you can mount anouther intake fan, this might help.

^^^ I see. Yup, I have dust filters. I also have 3 intake fans (120MM), and 2 exhaust fans (140MM). According to the numbers, I think I have the same amount of air going in and out, but numbers are just for advertising IMO. I dunno, maybe I should use those anti-static sprays on the window, but that may screw-up the acrylic and/or tint job. Same with pledge or windex I guess.

Well, it looks like you're doing all the right things. I feel your pain, though...I hate dust.

I can't think of any other ideas ATM...hopefully a few others can chime in. In the mean time, I'd hold off on any sort of chemicals - I'd hate to see them cause damage to your window.

You can't prevent dust from sticking to the window, if that's what you're asking. Do not use glass cleaning products on the window since that will damage the plastic and cause it to become cloudy. If you need to clean it, use a damp rag with some dish soap if necessary.

Thanks zero. i was thinking of wiping it with those anti-static cloths, the ones we throw into the dryers, i think they're called softeners, LoL. sigh, i guess i'll just live with the dust on the window and keep cleaning it every now and then.
