As promised earlier, these are my filtered fans that i have made up. They are not pretty, but at least they keep the dust down in my system.

FAN IN TAKE


FAN OUT TAKE

The metal grill is there to provent the cloth from coming loose.

That looks pretty cool. They make fan filters... http://www.frozencpu.com/cgi-bin/fro...nu_search.html

but don't you lose a lot of cfm? i would think that it would greatly reduce it esp when dust builds up?

That only happens if you do not hold the can straight.

I personally use a 180 lb. air compressor, and it works wonders. The air wont hurt anything in the case, or any of the peripherals. I also periodically remove the CPU and GPU HS's and wash them. This is only recommended for the neat freak, and great care should be taken.

A dust cloud may form, but would you rather cough for a moment or torch a processor cause you didn't want to move the dust. Just a thought

Get one of those face masks so you can keep the dust out.

I would also recommend removing any heatsinks and/or fans that are present and thoroughly cleaning them.
