Get ahead of the "dust-game". Make yourself some filters for ALL of your intakes. Or you can purchase some:

Dryer sheets work and due to their anti-static properties have a tendency to catch more airborne particles (+/- charges), or so it has been stated....(grain of salt, please?)

I'm too newbie to be able to make my own dust filters.

Is there anywhere that sells a 250mm fan dust filter? If not I guess I won't be able to get that Aerocool case, which sucks for me.

First I want to know why all the stores near me label a can as "Compressed Air" when in actuality it is not air.

Specifically, they sell canisters that contain extremely flammable "1,1,1,2 Tetrafluororethane, Petroleum Hydrocarbon".

The compressed air is not fake, even though other substances exist in the can.

Tetrafluoroethane is required in the cans of compressed air to remove the moisture from the compressed air.

I think the petroleum hydrocarbon is required for the propellant in cans of compressed air.
