As for the dust... tell me about it, i hat just wiped the whole case clean 2 weeks prior to that pic, it builds up so damn fast. I can;t get hold of any filters without getting them imported from the US which is just too expensive. I tried using a pair of the wife's tights, but the dust built up so quickly on them that the fans had blown them off after a week.
Thanks. I'm not sure where i can get a piece of thin aluminium to do that, but i'll keep my eye out. I'm not sure i could do it tho, as i have a fan down there that takes up a lot of the floor of the case. I think it'd look much better if i sprayed the inside black, but i don;t have any real space to spray paint as i live in an apartment and it'd be a full day project. Maybe when i upgrade i will wash the whole thing out and take it outside somewhere to spray.
There are places online, I just can't remember or come across it now. As far as painting, yeah the black interior just makes the case look better automatically IMO.
Check out this THREAD
. The first post has tons of useful links and in there you should find a store that sells aluminum.
