Default Fans

Hi,

I have 4 fans and on for the processor. I have got on big one at the front pulling air in and 2 little at the back tghrowing it out and one on the side taking it out. My fan grills keep getting clogged up with dust, and my system has to be on the floor becuase the case is so big. I want to know how i can stop having so much dust becuase i have to hoover my comp. every 2 days and its getting annoying.

Thanks in advance

How big are the fans, and are you looking to by something?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811999203 -90mm fan grill
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811999204 -120mm fan grill
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811998130 -small filter.. id reccomend these
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811998120 -80mm fan guard

Now most of those are a little big to big i think, I mean the slots inbetween the grill part thing. Know what i mean. But if the really small holed ones work, i think those would be nice to have, becase of the small holes. Although there only 80mm.
But those are the closest i could come with for dust protection, but as for what you can do at home, is vaccum more, lol, and if your not over clocking anything, you can turn down the rpms on the fan, to make them spin less, and in turn, pick up less crap from the floor.

You need to get into your bios. You know, by pressing F8. And then you adgust the settings from there. Or you can download a program. (ill search for it. I dont know if its fee though.

And you can straight up buy thingss like this http://www.coolerguys.com/840556016564.html
