I am thinking you should add the top fans as exhaust, depending on how much CFM they pull you can still keep positive pressure pretty easily.

I only have the 1 rear exhaust fan, the other 6 are intakes, including top H100 with GT AP-15s, and I've never seen my 2500K this cool. My GTX460 stays cool as well, so Im a big proponent of positive case pressure.

No, it's almost impossible to get hold of one of those cases in the UK just now.

What I did since my top fans are 140mm for my rad and are going to be exhaust I bent the tabs in the hatch with a flathead. After that I pulled out the sheet that has the small holes in the top hatch and my airflow doubled you can really feel it, it may work for front fans as well. The fron fan doesnt even really filter anything but dog hair.

The cfm's are amazing on my 140mm Prolimatech fans from frozen cpu and they are quite.
