Greetings Tomshardware Community,

I have a friend who wants to get a new gaming rig in a small-form factor. We already pick the parts but we want to know which is the best possible type of cooling using Corsair's new 350D Case (Windowed Version) he doesn't want to have any dust accumulating inside as possible. Here are the specs:

Positive air pressure systems are typically associated with accumulating less dust, although regardless of which you choose it will get dusty.
