Magnetic fillters for unused side panel fan slots. Tags: Power Supplies Fan Graphics Cards Components Last response: October 19, 2012 5:05 PM in Components Share bambinobomber October 19, 2012 4:37:43 PM I was just wondering if placing fillters on unused fan slots for a side panel was gonna decrease the amount of dust that would get to my graphic card and the cooler of my CPU. I'm gonna buy the Silverstone fillters for a Cooler Master Elite 371.

A lot of people seem to use them for unused slots on their side panels, but it seems like they do restrict the airflow a bit (from the CPU and GPU fans). Do you think this will be a big hit to temps? I will only have a stock rear exhaust fan and a SCYTHE S-FLEX SFF21E as intake. m 0 l jay_nar2012 a b ) Power supply October 19, 2012 5:05:37 PM No it won't hit temps by a big amount, maybe 1-3c depending on how much dust there is on the filters. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
