I tryed newegg.com couldnt find any, but http://www.frozencpu.com/search.html...ec=fan+filters

They reduce the CFM a little, or a lot not sure, but it will reduce your cooling...

Well not a soaking dripping wet rag dude lol. Make sure your monitor is off, and just make the rag slightly damp and then wipe it off. It's like a plastic kind of coating so no it won't hurt it

why don't they make a glass front on LCD's?
it would be a lot stronger, and it wouldn't stuff the screen up if someone was poking it (not that I poke the screen all the time)

How bad is dust inside a computer? Does it really have that bad an effect on the computer?
Will a normal hoover do for cleaning and how often should i clean it?

A hoover will generate a lot of static and this can damage components. It's generally not reccomended.

On the other hand I do it all the time and I've never had a problem.
