The only way to achieve this is to make the case a positive pressure case. By design, this case is negative pressure which lets air come through all the cracks in the case and not just the intake fans. The only way to fix it is to make the case positive pressure, so that only the intake fans will accumulate dust. You wont get the same cooling performance with positive pressure, but you will be able to control dust a little bit better.
How you achieve positive pressure depends on what fans, controllers, and setup your using. Simply by changing the top fans to intake should make the case a positive pressure case.
