You would have to clean often. There's just no way around that. I didn't clean my computer for a year and there were tons of dust in every possible crack. At least with my suggestion, you only have to clean the filter.

Yes there is simply have no fans simple problem solved there are quiet a few heatsink cases out there.

As you seemingly ignored my comment heres the webby for the mcubed passive case which should be able to handle any thing upto mid-high end components
HFX fŁr HiFi und Home Entertainment
Enermax make passive psu's upto 350W last I checked so there really is no need for fan holes

I think going with a laptop in this case would be a lot less headache, maybe get an external hard drive for backup/additional storage.

Does it have to be a desktop? Some laptops don't have fans in them.
