Thinking of adding a side panel intake fan

I was thinking of adding a side panel intake fan on my Lian Li PC60.

My current setup is twin 80mm intakes, 80mm rear exhaust, 80 mm .tyop exhaust and a dual fan PSU (92mm/80mm).

I am thinking to have a 92mm side intake placed right on top of the HSF. A bit worried about dust though.

Or should I place it lower pointing at the Northbridge?

Somewhere else? Or just leave things as they are?

I would place it so that it was cenered over the video card so half the air goes over and half goes under.

Seems to make sense, and at that way it wont be blowing dust and dirt directly into the HSF.

I had a side fan in my last box and will have one in this box (blowing on AGP). Dust, cat and dog hair is a BIG problem but the way I  solved it was to put a piece of panty hose (my wifes) over the intake side of the fan. Easer to clean than the whole inside of the case.

Here is a picture of the filtered side fan I put in my CoolerMaster ATC110. The airflow from the fan washes over the intake for the CPU fan; the video card; and the north bridge heatsink.


The fan is a 120mm Panaflow FBA12G12L1A
The filter assembly is a Qualtek 09450F/45

Fan
Filter assembly
Replacement filter media

I usually just vacuum the dust out of the filter media once a month and only change it if it rips.

What do you guys think about this product instead of a sie case fan. My side panel though has no holes on it.
