using a high airflow fan with restrictions (filter) doesnt work well, youll need a fan that provides higher static pressure, not just free air flowing high cubic feet numbers

or make the filter more efficient, bigger surface area

The Noctua NF-A14-3000 have good static pressure of 10.52mmH2O. I guess my filter tru which the fan is pulling is too small and the fan is pulling too much air. Maybe I need to limit the RPM to 2000 or less in order for the filter to work. I'm using a filter similar TeriYaki's - https://www.icmag.com/ic/picture.php...ctureid=942295
My fan is 2 times more powerful. Also I'm using this type of activated carbon -> https://cdn3.bigcommerce.com/s-af9o6/...86.513.jpg?c=2
Maybe I need to use other type?

youre not using a cillinder filter ??

and 300cubic per hour on 6 watts, is high airflow no matter what the ad tells you, a regular fan takes like 40 watts for that, but then its suited for a filter

Yep. Something like that one in the picture. Made it from PVC pipe. Also I'm running a full tower PC box, so it's not much space. So what do you think buddy? Maybe I need to lower the RPM of my fan? I think I shall try that but first I must buy a fan controller.

get yourself a regular filter first, a cillinder has about 8 times more surface area compared to the sandwich model, if youre using the psu place as exhaust you can get pvc 90* bend and put the filter on the back of the case
