In a few weeks I'll have the money and be able to order parts for my first build, and I'd like to see who here has the Fractal R5 because I have some concerns for it:
I'm planning on overclocking this system and installing an AIO (Corsair H100i), and one thing I noticed while watching videos reviews is that, the R5 doesn't have any dust filters if you decide to leave the panels open. Does anyone leave their top panels open (with fan cooling or AIO on the top, regardless) and finds that dust accumulates there easily? I found this dust filter kit on Demcifilter and I'm thinking about getting it as well.
Does anyone use push-pull configurations in their builds for this case? I'd like to get your feedback and experience with it, as it seems to be the most favorable configuration, and I've seen setups with 2 fans on each side of the H100i radiator to push pull out of the top.
Any real issues at all with the case? seems like theres overwhelming praise for it, and it seems almost perfect to me besides the no dust filter for the top, and a nitpicky detail with installing optical drives making it look a bit non-uniform.
