Beautiful body. But there is a huge flaw. All of glass.
In a month, everything will be clogged with dust and not cleaned 100%.
All the glasses will be dirty and will not be of any kind
Put filters on your intake fans. Mine looks clean after a year of use and the minimal dust can be cleaned easily.
Do you just cut up a filter to fit or is there some kind of thing you can buy?
I bought mine from performance-pcs. They have full sets for certain cases and some generic size filters for the ones that they don't.
Do you mind listing out some of the components that you had used for your build?
I'm pretty sure many of us on the drop could use some pointers / references.
Probably not really applicable. My build is about a year old, which in the computer world is about a century.
Ahh. Upon looking at the blowout of the case, it seems it comes along with filters.
When I meant "components", I meant the filters, fans and water-cooling units used and such.
Ah. For this case, it looks like you won't need filters. I went with an air cooling setup for mine. Bought Phanteks F140XP 140mm case fans and Noctua NF-A15 CPU cooler with dual 140mm Noctua fans. I'll probably go water cooling for my next build, but there's something about gigantic CPU coolers that I really really like.
Didn't you end up with a lot of space to keep beer and such for not going water-cooled?
That CPU cooler takes up all the beer space.
if you go with most fans blowing outward, it should minimize your dust intake
No. You want filters on all intake fans, and you must have more filtered CFM(cubic feet per minute) into the case than being blown out by the exhaust fans.(Positive Pressure). With PP, more air is being forced into the case than the exhaust fans can push out. The sum of the left over air will find a way to exhaust threw other small holes on the case. Since all the intake air is filtered, you are left with a near dustless case. With Negative Pressure, the exhaust fans are trying to pull more air out of the case than the filtered intake fans can provide. The difference will be made up by pulling UNFILTERED air into your case threw all the uncovered small holes elsewhere. This makes for a messy case and less idea cooling for interior components than positive pressure.
Excellent explanation of pp/np!
