Default Just a quick note to anyone with an antec 900 and dust issues

I put filters in all the unused 5.25 bay covers and the side 120mm and replaced the vented pci slots with solid ones.

6 months later at an average of 8 hours on time a day with 3x120mm inlet fans and an 80, 120 and 200mm outlet fans and I had almost zero dust. What dust there was was on the blades of the turbo module fans on my AC S1 cooler, it has a vented pci slot right beside it.

Also it is in the basement about 2" off the floor so about as bad as it can be.

Temps are 20/38*c on the cpu and 23/40 on the gpu so no cooling issues with the filters.

Post if you want more details.
