If it's outside the case then dust accumulation shouldn't be that bad 

Leave it be imo.

as long as there's sufficient airflow going through, why not... there are cases that come with this and will do just fine with one


mind you, of course a filter will give a bit more resistance for the fan, making it possibly a bit louder

If you judge a fish based on its ability to climb trees it will go its whole life thinking its a failure.
