This. Although, X is the absolute best in air cases, IMO.

Since your getting cards that exhaust heat into the case, I'd have to say that the haf x will give you the best temps.

However, if you were using externally exhausting cards, then I would say the raven rv02.

Silverstone Fortress FT02 or Raven RV02, better than CM in terms of cooling because of the flipped orientation and natural cooling solution used.

Also, your GPU will last longer because it's set up to be placed vertically.

I heard that hafx and 932 don't have a dust filter. Do you know any compatible dust filters for them?

Meh. Motherboard orientation does precisely squat in real life. The floor fans do far more than convection (stack effect) does in the Silverstone 90* cases. Take an RV02 and rotate 90* so that it is in standard ATX orientation, and you'll notice little if any change in temps all else being equal.

Silverston FT-02 or Raven 2 for sure
I can't vouch for the HAF X but I owned the 932, and my FT-02 runs cooler (not to mention quieter, looks sexier, and is just all around awesome!).
