not sure if they make this but...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
we all know hot air rises, so wouldn't it make sense to put the gpu's at the top of the case with a good exhaust fan. And place the cpu and psu at the bottom?

if this does exist, please share.

small form factor and flatbed cases address this. what youre referring to is tower cases and whats more important in those cases is having controlled air flow and direction.

I believe you're looking for an inverted ATX case? The things usually are VERY expensive. I'd go for the Raven RV-02. It's not the same thing but it's a revolutionary design.

It actually the Silverstone Fortress FT02. My friend has the special red one. Looks like a boss.

Regarding this type of cases with the motherboard oriented with its I/O panel upward, Silverstone recommends choosing a card with traditional 'front-centrifugal-fan-intake-and-rear-exhaust' for maximum cooling performance.

To achieve this optimal cooling, you want to avoid 2 cooling designs:-

1) exhausting hot air out in a direction other than via its rear. Otherwise, hot exhausted air will get recirculated back by the card's intake fan and/or colliding with the uprising cool ambient air.

2) with heatpipes pointing downward/tip of heatpipes well below the GPU. As such, gravity will have a negative impact to the efficiency of the heatpipes.

Read the note (see pic) and this official link's Q#1:-
http://www.silverstonetek.com/raven/...l=RV02&area=en

As the Twin Frozr II has both featues, I recommend you to look for another case style.

But if you have fallen in love with this type of case and really must have one, I would also say that you will unlikely encounter any serious problems like thermal BSODs. In fact, some users have reported that they have 'good' temperature numbers. But, what Silverstone means is that you will not have maximum cooling.
