    I don't remember posting these before. Yet, I was just reading the thread, random page by random page, and found I had posted about it in December last year. In this thread. And I don't remember doing it. Alzheimers?

    DDD, I suggest taping some coffee filters on the inside of your side panels and everywhere else that you have vent holes. Result: cheap yet effective dust filtering.

    Pantyhose. stretch it over the fan and elastic-band it into place around the fan frame. You may need to use some kind of spacer between the fan and "filter"

    As long as you're not too lazy to clean the HSF before the fan burns out or the CPU overheats, s'all good.

    What you need is:

    Tinfoil - Kill the Tinman and cut him down if you need it
    Paper - Kill Paperboy and steal his newspaper if you need it
    Chopsticks - Kill Mr Miyagi from the "Karate Kid"and rob his old fat ass blind and after you got money of his corpse, go buy some chopsticks. Or you can just steal some but man, who wants to do that.
    Rubberbands - Go rob Yoyo or something. Shit if you can't afford those you are too ghetto for me

    Instuctions:
    Tape/glue the Tinfoil to the paper. Then shove the chopsticks through and bend the tinfoil glued paper till it makes a parabola. Then use the rubberband to mount it to your router's antennas. Remember to rotate the parabolas to the general direction of your computer for the best results.
