In addition, the front panel of the chassis serves as the air intake area , Dust is also very important . therefore P500A It's a double filtration design , The outer layer is the heat dissipation mesh panel , It can be washed and the aperture is only 1mm, It can block most of the dust .
And then there's the second layer of magnetic suction dust screen , It can also be removed for cleaning , Further block the entry of dust .
In line with their own 3 Put the fan , Better take into account the cooling and dust requirements .
