    Oh my lord...gross

    I bought a new black sleek case for my pc, to replace my old off-white budget one(still had removable side panels though) because I had 2 custom mount 120mm fans - one for side intake, one for top exhaust. This was too noisey, they had to go. Also, I had no guards, grills, or dust filters, and had the fans in there for a good 7-8 months. One of the fans was obviously sucking in - at 64cfm.

    DAAAANG, it was nasty in there. So, in the middle of transfering my hardware over to this new case, I had to take some time and clean off all my boards and stuff. Inside my old case, before moving the hardware...there waws TOOONS of dust, I found LOTS of spider webs....and a dead fly! HA!

    ...just thought it was funny, and thought I'd share.
    The world is waiting. I must leave you now.

    I put fan grills on each of my fans that blow into the computer, then every 2 weeks or so I vacuum out all of the dog hair/dust/other crap that gets stuck into the grill. Actually, all of the grime will sort of lift off if I feel like doing it by hand.

    The problem with wanting something is the fear of losing it, or never having it. The thought makes you weak.

    That is the exact thing that I use. Later on maybe I'll post pictures to show how effective they are, if anyone is debating whether or not they should spend the $5(the site you linked to is somewhat over-priced).

    It's $5 because the mesh itself, is made of stainless steel.
