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. ^-^

I find you get more dust from taking air under the case vs having the power supply take air from within the case.

Worst case, I recommend just clean it from time to time.

If you want a filter, SilverStone has some magnetic ones that should stick to most cases(not if the bottom of the case is aluminum).

Okay, thanks. Sorry if my English isn't very good, but you say i should have the fan from the psu pointing up, inside of the case rather than having it point down?

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. ^-^
