    Guys,

    Should I be putting filters on all of my fans, or just the intake fans?

    Thanks :D :cheers:

    Yea, no need to filter the air leaving the PC now is there...

    Nope, best give any dirt a fair chance to get out if at all posssible.

    in an antec case, if i were to have all the front and rear fans as intake fans, with a single exhaust 120mm fan on the top, would i have to filter all of the intake fans (including the rear ones) ? and would that cool well ? or would the "stock" setup cool better ?

    As to how well it would cool, you'd have to let us know. :D
    But yes if you want filters then every intake fan must have them. ;)

    I think that would work fairly well. But yea, if you want a clean case, all air coming in needs to be cleaned...

    With that case, then he'd have 5 80mm intake fans, and possibly a side fan if he gets a model that comes with the a side fan.
