Cooler Master SL600M - fan question

I'm tossing up whether I get this case or not. Have read in a review that it's got pretty good cooling performance for the GPU, but not great for the CPU.



As you can see in the picture above the GPU blocks air from the bottom fans getting to the CPU (and the hot air the GPU spits out will go into it as well)

I'm wondering if the latter might change if one were to have the rear fan pull air into the case instead of pushing it out? That way fresh cold air is blowing directly on the CPU right in front of it as pictured below:



Of course the CPU cooler fans would also be blowing from left to right.

Does anyone have experience with this case?

Appreciate any input

I would suggest researching some more. Cooler Master states that this unit does not have a front or rear cans. It's basically bottom to top cooling.
Due to the lack of decent air flow, I wouldn't bother with this case. There are plenty of other alternative that offer much better air flow.
If you are planning on using this case, I would suggest getting either the GPU or the CPU on an AIO and mounting it on the top, with high airflow fans on the bottom.

You are right with that one, I've been looking at a few and must've got them mixed up... tis' a shame. I have the FT05 already which I'm really happy with in terms of performance and sound, but it's really cramped inside the case. I'd like something with similar performance but more roomy and was hoping this might be it, but it is not

I had FT05 too , very cool case ,but i wanted tempered glass and a little bigger case , so now i have the new Phanteks p600s . Same cooling performance ,but more modern and better looking .

Or take look at Cooler Master c700p case . Mobo can be rotated by 90degree ,just like in the FT05. And u can add 3bottom /3 front ,top and rear fans too

Look into the Meshify C/Meshify S2, CoolerMaster H500P Mesh, Lian Li PC-011, or Phanteks P600S if you are focused on airflow IMO.
