I found a great deal in a store of a HAF932, i currently already own a 1200 and wanted this for a future build since its such a good price, but about dust control im worried about frontal fan, what could i do?

The fan can be removed of course.But from my experience it doesnt collect too much dust in the front.The side fan is the one u should worry about.Thing is that the 932 has possitive pressure so the dust isnt sucked in from every hole.Instead it gets blown away from every opening other that the intake fans.So i f like u can put a filter(if u find a big enough) but u ll ruin the HAF feature...(High Air Flow)

I was planing on replacing the side one with 4 filtered 120 mm 90cfm fans and the frontal one had my doubts
