Default Fan Filters

Hey I was wondering if anyone has any experience with fan filters? I HATE when I open my case to check it out and I am greeted with a case full of dust. I know these wont keep all the dust out...but it sure looks like they would help a lot.

120mm Jumbo Fan Filter

My only concern is air flow. Would these be a heavy restriction for the air flow in and out of the case?

Thats great news because I was really looking forward to these....so what would you say is regularly? Every 3 months? Or more often than that?

i'de say every month, at min. my antec three hundred has a built in fan filter and that fills up pretty quickly. i clean it about every 3 weeks. all depends on how much you run your pc and how much air the fans are moving.

Those filters look really nice, and they're dirt cheap. I know I could use some, my fiance smokes, haha...

Though smoke dust is so much more nasty...I would buy the 10 pack because I know I'd have to replace them from all the gunk after a few months, haha.

I dont smoke or have pets, but theres always a lot of dust in my room. I think its because I spend a lot of time in here. The best thing about these is it says you can simply wash them and reuse them after they dry.
