I cut squares out of a piece of screen and put those over my intake fans. Just find some mesh or something along those lines and cut squares out of it. It works well too...When I pulled open the side of my case and looked at the filter on one intake fan, it was covered with dust.

Word to that, I have a 25gal Craftsman air compressor in my garage. It's ridiculous how much air it blows. When I fill my tires up, I only have to hold it in 5 seconds fore each tire.

For filters I use dryer sheets and to clean out my pc I use a leaf blower.

Panty hose is a good idea. Nylon is so cool.

wouldnt a tissue be a bad idea? wouldnt you just end up getting the small fibres inside instead of dust?
