    Default Dust protection for a top vent?

    I've got a NZXT Switch 810 case and I'm using a Corsair H100i liquid cpu cooler. It says for best performance to have the fans as an air intake. Do they make filters for the top vent? It's got slats to close it when it's not in use, but I figured someone must have vent filters.

    I use a few of these:

    One thing worth noting is that you may need to "modify" them by cutting and splicing with hot glue depending on how close together your fans are.

    One thing I would question is why you are attempting to use the top of your case as an air INTAKE. Heat rises. You should use the fans on the bottom of your case as an intake and the ones on the top as an exhaust.

    Yeah I know that, but the Corsair instructions say it works better as an intake.

    Probably more to do with airflow. Use the top to get air in and the rear to push it out.
