What size dust filter is need for the top of the NZXT Source 530 full tower?

What size dust filter is need for the top of the NZXT Source 530 full tower?

I plan to have x3 120 mm fans on the top however I wish to cover the whole size of the top to keep the dust out including the x2 140 mm fan spaces.

Will the DEMCI Flex Triple 120mm Magnetic Fan Filter cover it effectively or should I go with x3 140mm filters but this may be too large could someone please find out?

Furthermore which components are magnets particularly dangerous?

All answers appreciated

    Hello Mickypheonix

    Many thanks for the reply I had a look at the link you left and found that the 140mm triple will be too large so I plan to go with the 120 mm triple as the overall size: 410mm x 150mm. Actual filter size: 380mm x 120mm which will cover up the 140 mm spaces.

    I can't run triple 140s as the case only supports x2 140s and x3 120s so going with the triple 120s

    Furthermore I am running the x3 120 mm fans as exhaust, the reason for the dust filter is that I am afraid that dust will get in the NZXT source 530 as it does not come with top filters and therefore not dust proof what do you think?

    for exhaust you do not need dust filters , simply put a cover or cloth over your case when not in use , 99% of dust will come from intake fans or mesh openings , concentrate on positive air pressure , more intake than exhaust this will help reduce dust in your case , personally i would never cover exhaust fans i don't see the need
  4. Okay thank-you
