As per their product page here Gigabyte Product Page airflow is from bottom to top. I am not liking this case much. The wasted space in the front of the case is a big question for me. Also there is not a very good way to get positive air flow in this case as I can see only room for maybe one fan on the bottom of the case as vents don't go all the way to the front. You would also have to use the back fan as an intake to even get anything close to positive air flow pressure.

Yeah, seems like it and I'm not a fan of this case at all. Seems like someone brainfarted in the design when it comes to cooling and airflow.

Those 3 blue intake arrows sure are deceiving since over half of that area is blocked by the PSU. Maybe the name should be changed to XTREMELY THROTTLED GAMING'

Maybe they should have just put slits around that front panel with a filter behind and some intake fans in that enormous void?? I get having free area in the plane of the PCI slots, but WTF goes in that upper front space?

It was all going so well until they plastered XTREME GAMING across the side.

The ariflow is similar to the InWin 303. Minus the PSU placement etc.

Color is terrible and the 303 looks crap loads better.

Yeah I was going to say the airflow doesn't look too good. TBH the insides look quite cheap too.

Everything about this case just looks and feels wrong in my opinion.

Looks ugly, has a big fat "XTREME GAMING" written on it's side panel, if not a little simple "Gaming" is bad enough, they have to go mental with it. And the airflow seems to suck horribly.
