Default Ghetto Fan Filters

So my friend gave me some extra 120mm fan filters to use. They were too big so I took the filters out of the plastic grill and just put them around my two fans, and used some rubber bands to hold them in place. Probably the most 'ghetto' part about my computer.

Yup, those are "ghetto" fan filters alright. You could have used bailing wire to hold them on.

Ya know, if you trimmed it up, it would look pretty clean when it was mounted ;-)

Whatever works!

Women's pantyhose also works well as a fan filter. I had a nice aluminum reusable fan filter that I put on my old rig, worked really well.
