Hi all,

I built my most recent gaming system a while ago with the plan of having it hidden away and being out of ear shot, however part of my enjoyment of computers involves looking at it, so I ended up finding that boring to have it hidden. So I decided to put it more on display, built a shelf out of some old flooring and sat it on it. Although its just a cheap budget case, it has excellent air flow, and doesn't look too horrendous, but from one side you just see the IO/cables/antenna etc etc. I have managed to reduce the cabling down to just the power cable and an ethernet cable, but I was wondering if anyone knows of an ATX case that has the IO at the top of bottom? I know I could probably find this with a mini ITX case, however I like the amount of cooling, I like the Noctua NH-D15, I have a PCIe card which is used to remotely turn the computer on, and I did have a triple slot GPU, and after going to a double slot I might go back to triple slot at some point so prefer to stick with what I have got for the moment rather than changing to m-atx or similar. This limits me a fair bit but if anyone knows of anything it would be greatly appreciated as I haven't managed to find anything so far. Thanks all

These are 2 cases that google turned up. Silverstone has plenty of rotated cases, but many of them are EOL.

That’s amazing thank you! Funnily enough I had just designed in fusion360 a case this evening to fit the six 140mm noctua fans I have (3 at the top and 3 at the bottom) with the IO at the top then came back on here and saw the Alta F1-perfect. Just to find a place to buy one/check the price 👍🏻

The Alta was delayed (covid). It's new release is December.

I'm all in with SFF, but the Silverstone cases always piqued my interest.

I can only recall Silverstone's Raven series as having the motherboard IO at the case top.
