Quiet Configuration for 24/7 Server with no GPU

Hi,

I am looking to build my first system in a long time, I am looking to use it as a server for hosting Web Applications. It will be on 24/7 and since I am going to put Linux server with no gaming use. I have decided to use internal graphics on the i7-8700K CPU. To save space and keep it compact, I am going for the Corsair - Air 240 MicroATX Mid Tower Case. I was looking to use the fanless SeaSonic - 520W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular Fanless ATX Power Supply but the comments indicate that it is prefer to have a top ventilated case. And looking at the images of the case so far, the PSU will most likely be mounted at the Front so I would imagine the PSUs ventilated top will most like face the MB and CPU. I wonder if that might become an issue with heat.
