What do you think - does a filter reduce air flow for 120 fan?
Thank everybody

of course,, anything you put in the way will to some degree. but most of the filters you can buy say at www.caseetc.com and places like that dont make too big of an impact on air flow. worth it to keep that junk out of the fins of your radiator.

i had put filters over my 120's and they restricted the air flow BIGTIME!!! there was still decent airflow, but i like the gale force winds better

My opinion...

It all depends on how much dust you have in the air.

On my system, a filter would fill up with dust quite quickly.

Pretty much 2 choices:

1. Live with the dust getting into the PC & do preventative maintenance to prevent problems. This gives better airflow, but can lead to greater dust buildup.

2. Put a filter on. This means lower air flow, but can help reduce problems associated with dust.

I currently use Air Conditioner filter material & have no problems with it. It's hidden inside the system.

The aluminum screen filters work good too and look better if they're gonna be seen.

Just stretch a nylon over any kind of frame. It's not going to filter the very fine dust, but it will serve its purpose.
