Default An alternative to antec nine hundred gaming case?

hello ive been looking at the antec nine hundred gaming case:

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...d=7&subcat=160

i think its a pretty good case the selling point for me being the cooling (obvious) but after doing abit of research and finding that it has no dust filters iam really off this case. as i dont want to spend every saturday taking it apart to clean my cpu fan from all the dust. so i was wondering if there was any mods of it that anyone has done that includes easy to access dust filers in the design?

alternately ive been looking at these cases:

Thermaltake VE2000BWS Armour LCS Super Tower

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...d=7&subcat=715

Thermaltake VA8003BWS Armour Super Tower

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...d=7&subcat=715

i havnt done much research into both of them. the main reason i want a new case is better cooling but it must have easy to clean dust filters as dust is a major problem in my room.

has anyone got any suggestions?

Its really easy to get dust filters....you can buy them or just use old pantyhose if you or any family members have them. And I've heard they work quite well. If not, just go out and order them online. Like these here: http://www.petrastechshop.com/fanfilters.html Remember, you only need these for intake fans, exhaust you don't need them.

yeah i know. what i was looking for is easy to access dust filters. not having to take the case apart but just simply pull them out or something

This is my case P180 Antec, if u look close this are 2 filters that u can VERY easy remove. But i just use the vacuum cleaner, so no need for me to remove them

hmm, why would a case have 2 powersupplys? And P190 is the same size as the P180, both of them are "Advanced Super Mid Towers"
