Computer fan intake air filters DIY Jan 2009

I started looking into fan filters and decided to try to make my own.

The fan filter shown below is from a company called Nexus (http://www.nexustek.nl/NXS-accessories.htm).  They also sell various other interesting and useful products.

The thing that filters are supposed to do is prevent dirt from entering the case.  Therefore, one can make his/her own.  This one is made from cutting out a square from a black t-shirt.  Once that is done, the square can be placed over the area and either screwed on, taped on, or whatever can be used.

Although, a t-shirt is used for this, various other material can be used.  Looking around the hardware, clothing, or junkyard may provide better and/or cheaper filter material.  It is only a matter of having the right tools for the job.
