Default cutting out exhaust grill at back of case....

Stupid question but...My 140mm rear exhaust doesn't feel like it's pushing out much air. So if I cut the grill out, there won't be dust because it's an exhaust, right?

only if you never turn it off. i would suggest getting a fan that moves more air.

I only turn my computer off once every other week, so I guess it's cool.

the rear grills are not meant to filter out dust, they are meant to keep the wires, such as keyboard, mouse, speaker, etc, out of the way of the fan.
