You think after all that attention to detail and money spent on this, i would suddenly forget that? Never in my life and 14 years of computer building have i had to use filters and never once had a fan seize on me. I always clean my computer and even more so now as i would consider it disrespectful NOT to given its a extension and tool of my "practices". I don't believe in restrictions and already looking at getting a dremel tool to remove the front metal plate that holds 140mm fans/radiators in place quite a bit of metal blocking at least 10% of the airflow of those front 200mm fans.Removing case screens may increase your airflow, but you will have clogged CPU cooler fins and dirt covered fan blades real fast.
More cleaning - or - less cleaning ... up to you.
Edit: i may toss two of these in the front over removing front metal plate then install one in the rear. Computer would double up as a flight simulator after doing this though.
