HAF X dust filter changing (have to bend metal???)

Hi, when taking out the dust filters on my haf x i have to bend the grated metal to get to the filters, im worried this bending back and forth will eventually make it snap. Am i doing it wrong, is it supposed to stay inside and im supposed to blow it out with air cans? (im too broke to buy them all the time)

Or is this some special metal that is durable and is supposed to be bent?

  1. There's nothing meant to be bent. If it doesn't come out any other way, it's supposed to stay in there.

    Instead of blowing air through them, just suck them clean with a vacuum cleaner. Which I suppose anyone has? :)
  2. arnt vacuum cleaners supposed to be bad for ur computer because they can make static electricity or something?

    Vacuuming the front grille is inconsequential since there are no components anywhere near it inside the PC for any static electricity buildup there to jump to. You could rub the front grille all day and likely still would not manage to get the voltage to rise high enough to jump anywhere without hooking a Van de Graaff generator or Tesla coil to it.
