    Awesome job on this @kosti. The cooler mod and the bottom cover mod are excellent.

    I agree with @Papusan on using the filters. They do an excellent job of keeping dust and lint out of the laptop. I used to clean out the inside of my laptops about once a month, but since I started using my U3 mods with filters it takes around 90 days to collect the same amount of crud. I now have three U3 mods with 120mm fans on AC-powered controllers.

    My wife does not wear panty hose much, so I use the snap-on type with the washable element. For the first two mods I used the Rosewill filters, but I cannot find them any more. For the third mod I used those in the link below. They look very similar, but they are a bit flimsy compared to the Rosewill filters. They still work OK, and they are very inexpensive.

    Thanks Mr. Fox and Mr. Papusan. I was shocked with how much dust accumulated in such a short amount of time. I suspect most of it has to do with the modified bottom tray. I gotta get some filters now for the fans....either that or a wife that wears panty hose :D

    Fans with the highest possible static pressure + high air flow is best to use. The highest possible airflow gives the best result. Everything depends on whether the sound level is acceptable for you:D.

    Deltas are great fans! That's why most OEMs use them for desktops and servers. I originally wanted to get a set of Delta AFB series fans but the shipping would have been too much where I live. Look at the AFB series.
