Not at all, I assume it *will* come in.

You are right that you need a filter, because then the unwanted routes
which are unfiltered will be exhaust only.  That's ideal I think, though
a lot of people think they can filter all inputs and use negative
pressure.  I don't think that's ever true for PC cases.

Mostly I'm thinking unfiltered inputs on negative pressure cases, and it
messed up my posting a bit.  You are right about needing the filter on
positive pressure case inputs.

Still, I have changed unfiltered cases to positive pressure and they
were visibly less dusty.  Perhaps it was other factors.
