    Main problem with dust filters is that you have to disassemble half of the PC to clean them and that might be necessary quite often if systems are running 24/7. I see how annoying that is with my Lian Li. And i only had one case in the past where intake fans had external filter with a dedicated case door to reach them. So you just popped off that door, cleaned the filter and poped it back in. Now, i have to unscrew 8 screws, dismount a PSU, dismount a front CPU cooler radiator and clean the stuff. I wish they'd all just make easy cleanable filters on the case itself. That would make things so much easier...

    Um i could be just balls out tired but i remember buying this years ago for my computer.

    I bought those back in 2010. they restrict air blow pretty bad to.

    If these are the same you don't have to do any disasemble of your machine, as its 2 parts, the inner bracket holds the screws in to the fan. and top outter bracket just snaps over top of it so you just pull it apart and get the filter out while machine is still running.

    Why I went with a CM Storm case. Filters are so simple to clean. Just pop off, blow, pop back on. Still have to do it often tho and it doesn't stop all dust. Bout 1/4th of the dust gets in but this case has a roof exhaust which has no filter on it so it could part be from dust settling through that when it is powered off.

    I just don't like those "gamer" cases. I even took out my front LED illuminated fans on Lian Li and replaced them with plain Noiseblocker Multiframe fans.

    The Fractal Define R4 case is so simple, you can slide out the dust filters and clean them while the PC is running, both front and underneath!

    I can see how these would be useful to someone who doesn't have filters. I especially liked the part where it said the filters can be removed by opening the cover. That ease of use should make this a good seller.
