Is it Possible to Keep Dust Out by Using Lots of High CFM Fans?
Just curious if this will work cause I'm thinking of buying 7 sunon 108CFM fans for my UFO2 both for watercooling and to plug up the 120mm holes.3400+ Venice @2.75GHZ 1.55V Air

You would think the dust wouldnt have time to settle, but I have an unfiltered high speed intake fan and I still have to go after the area in front of it with a can of air every now and then.Main: MOBO: MSI P67A-G45, CPU: i7 2600k w/ VenX (4.4ghz @ 1.33v), RAM: 2x8gb Kingston HyperX Blu Red Series DDR3 1600, GFX: Galaxy GTX670 GC, PSU: OCZ 1250w ZX, CASE: Corsair 500R, HDD: 120gb Samsung 840, WD 4TB Black

In theory you would think so, but there will always be some dead space for the dust bunnies to gather....

The fan blades them selfs will have dust on them after a while.

I use a mesh like the stuff on the front of a CM Stacker case for fan intakes. It does not stop all the dust but it stops most of it and still allows good airflow for high CFM fans.Main Comp (Win 7): ASUS R4E; i7-3930k @ 4.9GHz; G.Skill Ripjaw Z 4x4GB @ 2133MHz; Nvidia GTX780; Custom Watercooling

Just blow out your case with canned air once in a while. no need for filters, they restrict some air flow.
