lol NP on the dyslexia(hard to spell ) Yea, that would take in much less dust than 5 intake fans .

I think deep down he likes it, so he's going to put one over the exhaust to keep some dust in xD

so then you only need 4 filters. I have 3 intake and 3 Exhaust fans, the intakes have the dust filter...and the exhaust don't need anything cause they're blowing outwards anyway.

Teny, let me ask you something a bit off-topic. How's the Xion PSU? I almost got a really nice deal on this case/psu but I was afraid Xion PSUs where bad.

LOL Well, I guess when you have that many it is easier to forget . I would recommend buying them pre-made. You will have a better quality product and not worry about them falling apart. If it bothers you enough, then it is worth the cost.

EDIT: My case also has filters on it's intake grills. I don't use the one on the bottom of the case however. The side panel has one of the steel filters like on the xoxide site, and the front fan uses a (nylon?) mesh like most of your standard filters that you wash out with water. Both work well, and speaking of this, I need to clean them out .
