Hi, so i just purchased the parts for my first build (yay!) but i noticed that the chassis i ordered, The Phantom 410, does not have a dust filter on the bottom where the psu is. So i was wondering if a 140mm fan filler would fit on there or if i install the psu so that the fan is pointed up, that i will not need a dust filter, thanks. ^-^
In my experience it has never been an issue to run the fan facing up and I always picked up less dust this way.
If your system is very hot, facing the fan down may be better, but for most systems either way works. It is almost all about preference.
The link was just about a fan filter that may work should you want the fan to face down.
Okay, thanks a lot =) and im just using the fans that came with the chassis so 1 120mm in the back, 1 120mm in the front, and 1 140mm on the top. i do plan on upgrading and adding more later on, but thanks for the advice. I think i'll just point the psu fan up. ^-^
