It is in my area, has been for more than a month. Well, maybe not the cottonwoods, but pollen being sticky the little bits quickly add up into big chunks.

IMO... Set it for exhaust and put a filter on all the intake fans. (edit: and clean those filters often if you have that level of dust in the air)

When you use a rad as an intake all of the heat it removes from the CPU is just being put right back into the PC and thus the opposite of what you want. Intake = cool air and exhaust = hot air.
