In addition, dust in the housing is the main reason for overheating and thus for possible unstable operation. Although time-to-time cleaning can not be prevented, the effort can be considerably reduced. A simple and cost-effective solution is dust filters, which are placed in front of the suction fans. If these are installed, the entire interior, with all its inaccessible corners and sensitive components, no longer needs to be dedusted but only the filters.
DEMCiflex offers a particularly easy-to-retrofit solution which is suitable for the upper fan opening of the NZXT S340 Elite housing in this case. In this case, the filter is simply placed on the opening from the outside of the housing and is held magnetically there. Therefore, no screws or the like are necessary, whereby there is no compatibility restriction. Since not all fan positions are magnetically attractive, an additional frame is included in the delivery of the backside and the filter is held on the back.
The filter itself consists of a very dense woven and durable polyester fabric. This special material is also used in hospitals, for example to keep operating rooms dust-free. At the same time, the net is very permeable to air and therefore only minimizes airflow.
This effect naturally decreases with increasing dust, which is why the filter should occasionally be removed and cleaned. Due to the special fastening method, the removal of the fan is again child-friendly and fast. The dust can then be either painted, shaken, washed off by hand, or even rubbed off with stubborn dirt.
