Bottom-to-top airflow cases?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

What are some cases that feature airflow intake on the bottom and airflow exhaust on the top? Extra bonus for 140 fan support/280 rad support and no optical bays?

 

I really like the Silverstone FT02, but it's a behemoth. I think a lot of the space is perhaps wasted for most builds. I know of some of the Inwin cases but none of the bottom-to-top ones support 140mm fans?

Thermaltake F31 Suppressor kind of allows for that, especially with a small PSU, however, I question why you want to do that? You are pulling dust-up off your floor/desk into the case.

Any case supports bottom-up airfllow if your angle grinder is big enough.

 

On a less silly note, Inwin's 303 supports bottom-up very nicely, but I think you're limited to 120mm fans with it.

I'm looking at dual radiators (one 280 one 240) and almost every case can support front intake and top exhaust, but that doesn't really optimize airflow. I'm looking for a solution where all my intakes are 280/240 rad bound and all my exhausts are 280/240 rad bound. Something like bottom-to-top maximizes space used and minimizes dead space. Plus it ensures airflow goes in more or less a straight column.
