If you put a duct that lets the hsf pull cold air in from outside, that would work really good.
If you ever have any questions feel free to email me at, I will send you back an email as soon as possible.

I would personally install two 120mm fans, (without) filters. Filters have an huge consequence, it destroy air current insanly.
I recommend just cleaning your computer out once a month. The more you clean your computer, the less you have to clean. Plus you will have alot better cooling.
