I need a dust filter for my two 80mm side panel fans?

The two 80mm fans on the side of my case (blowing on the CPU & GPU) don't have any kind of filter and dust is building up quick on my CPU heatsink and GPU.

So does anyone know where I can get a nice looking filter for these fans?

Thanks,

It's a tradeoff, in my book. If you put a filter in then it will restrict the airflow to some extent, and the dust will quickly build up on the filter and restrict it further. So for a filter to be useful to me it would have to be externally mounted and easily removed for cleaning. If it is mounted on the inside, and I have to pop the panel, then I might as well just clean her out at that point.

Both http://www.jab-tech.com and http://www.svc.com have quite a selection of filters. I normally use the two-piece, black plastic frames that hold a piece of filter foam. They meet the above requirements and are among the least expensive both initially and for replacement filter material (I use air conditioner foam filter material and cut it to size). If you want something fancier, they have plenty of those too.
