Thread: Looking for a case that is dust proof or close to it.




  1. #1

    Default Looking for a case that is dust proof or close to it.

    I know that computers need to have ventilation but I need to build a computer for someone that is not in the cleanest environment. Is there such a case that can help with that situation. Thanks.

    Not really... if you have moving air then you will always have some amount of dust. You can help out the situation by making sure you have all intake ports filtered with a material that is easy to clean. I have found that the mesh-type filters work well and I just hit them with the vacuum hose when I clean my work room.

    I have the Antec P190 and it has filters on all the intakes and that removes almost all the dust, but that case is far too pricey to recommend.

    you can go into most any hardware store nad buy cheap air filters... they look like sponges to a certain extent and are about $10 for enough to do your whole PC... they'll catch 95% of the dust and only need to be replaced every 6 months or so... being cheap is always the best remedy
