Hello,
I just built a new rig with Antec 300 case. A great value for money case, but a bit worried about the vent for the fan at the top. Dust and debris can fall straight in.
Thinking if I should add a strips of curtain like material, which lay flat when Pc is switched off and stop dust entering the case.

A washable filter is supplied on the front, not sure why its not supplied for the the top.
Would'nt a filter to stop dust also restrict the airflow out? :??:

Your top fan should be an exhaust fan (ideally) and so doesn't need a dust filter.
