So my girls have been giving off their sweet sensual perfume for days now, and I know I should have done this sooner... but here is my DIY carbon filter..
Picked up a few things at walmart.
Black "Pencil cup"
Smaller black "Pencil cup"
Black ladies socks (pantyhose)
Poor some carbon in the mesh like "pencil cup"
.... just enough so the smaller cup is level with the larger cup.
Slip the smaller cup into the sock
Tuck the sock into the smaller cup holding the end of the sock. Pore in the carbon.. keep holding the end of the sock.
Now pull on the end of the sock and use your finger to guide the carbon into the space between both cups until filled.
Now pull the end of the sock over the entire filter.. twist the end of the sock at the bottom and pull it up over the end of the cup.
Now simply use duck-tape to place the filter over your exhaust fan. I used a rubber band to secure it...
Works great... though I already miss that sweet aroma =[

Anyways the thread was labeled something like diy carbon filter for less than $40, I'm not sure what the break down was but I'm sure the carbon is one of the more expensive things but everything was under 40 so its not too bad. I found the carbon in a pet store I think it was $25? And you get enough that your not going to use it all up on one filter.

took me about 10 minutes to make and cost 11.02 with plenty of act. carbon left to refill
PrplHZ look in the pets section by the fish airstones and stuff.

i was going to check office max/depot and other dept stores like target and kmart, but i made a completely different filter altogether that works better for my situation.
If wal-mart happens to be out of things you can find the cups at staples or michaels. And around my area you can get a 20 oz plastic bucket of activated carbon at petco (aquarium section) for $10
also, guys, you should drill holes in the bottom for that extra airflow

When it comes to air flow and a filter, it's better to "pull the air" rather than "push the air through".
i'm curious about how this effects fan cfm ratings. one would have to assume it would slow down air flow a bit, right?
Ideally, your filter would be setup in front of your outtake fan to maximize the effectiveness of the fan, however many people don't have that option and go with what they got.
For me? I just put together metal ducting on my back and top 120mm fans where both fans will blow out to a carbon filter outside the pc.
Most people use pc's for stealth reasons, I'm using 1 because I don't have the space for a tent..... yet. So, having 2 90 deg elbows and a T connector hanging on the back of my pc isn't an issue for me. When I get a working cam I'll post my rig. Oh the filter is going to go on the inside of the duct piping for my exhaust.
