My 900 only has a little dust in it after about 5 months of usage. If you're still concerned though, you could shoehorn a filter into the modular bays. Another suggestion might to be just stretch panty hose over the front of your fans.Is there any way to buy a side panel with a window for this case or would I have to modify it myself?

I've drilled my own cable management holes, which was easy enough to do. I also painted all the grey crap black so it looks hella fly. Again, easy enough if you're willing to devote the time.
My only complaint is I wish I could have both front fans in and 4 5.25 drives rather than only 3... oh well... I'll figure somethin out.
So anyway... the Antec 900 is a modder's dream and a great case, but if you're looking for tidy and completely dust free with no moddification, then stay away. (but in imho, modding is fun!!)

Needs a little dusting, but it's been a few months...
