Its just my logic is if its got 3 filters then they should all be intakes no? Im not interested in filtering my exhaust, i could remove the filter i guess but it seems wasteful.

I would say they include filters on all the vents in case people don't put fans on them. Dust can still enter when the PC is off or if you had negative pressure within the case, it would draw dust in too.

You can have all the fans as intake if you want, it just means that the sum of all that air will be forced out the cracks and the back of the case.

True. But with that in mind wouldnt they filter the holes in the back, or was it there intention to have enough intakes that it would create enough positive pressure to act as a passive exhaust? The secondary psu slot is also not filtered.

Hi guys, So I was waiting to share my Lian Li Bauer case build until I sleeved my cables but I decided not to as its pretty neat and tidy as it is ( maybe down the line ill sleeve em ).
Thanks for suggesting this case as its perfect for a dual rad push pull config. It is tight however, I had to leave out the washers on the back rad fans as the back cover wouldn't close otherwise ( I guess I could have put the filter on the outside of the case but its ok the way it is )
Behold 12 120mm fans! lol...

PS: the loud fan sound in the video is my humidifier running in the back round, not the pc its self lol..
