...as stated, it is not quite finished yet or I would add more pics...but here is a quick summary
1.) 200 mm top fan and 140 mm 'stock' rear fans are reversed - top and rear blow in
2.) additional fan behind the case (where vid cards' connectors sit) blowing in - ditto for either 2x 120 or 1x 200 for the main side window (that's the hold-up as I am trying to locate SLI bridges longer than 12 cm - the Asus ROG MaxVEx has the extra slots if I can find bridges long enough)
3.) XSPC 360 / 60 rad stands vertical RIGHT BEHIND the front grills - has 3 'pull' 120 mm fans upfront and 3 'push' at the other end (mix of Thermaltake rad fans pirated from a Thermaltake 2 water Extr. and Noctuas).
4.) The other back panel (covering the CPU opening) has a 120 mm hole cut in right where the CPU / VRM location is at the back of the mobo...using a low profile Scythe 120 for that.
5.) First airflow tests show positive pressure of reversed system (but again, not done yet)...for now, keep bottom fans off to see if I need them or not
6.) Swiftech MPC 655 pump is elevated a bit from the bottom, sitting between rad and PSU
7.) Swiftech res is mounted 'half way up' (and just above pump) on what used to be the vertical bit holding the HD cages (2x HD and 2x SSD moved up top, 2 HDs underneath plastic cover, though not final yet)
...key will be the final location of tri-SLI cards as they are heavily modded but need breathing space - and side fans for them I finally decide on, subject to getting the right SLI bridges (placing the fans in a cut-out of the glass window)
