Don't worry about the 140mm fan. Your 200mm side panel fan will be more then enough to cover that.
This would have been fine in the old days when there were motherboard components that needed cooling at least as much as your cpu. Now you want your cpu cool. You also want to keep your gpu's exhausted heat away from your cpu. Bottom-up airflow does not do that. I'm even looking into partitions between the cpu space and the gpu space.

Yep that was me. The difference was 2-3 degrees after 1hr prime.

Btw that GPU air duct that blows straight onto the video card is near useless. I think with it off, there was only 1-2 degrees difference. The reason why is because it's not really pulling any cool air from the bottom intake at all. The HD cages down there really obstructs the airflow - leave the side panel open and try to see if you can feel any air going through there at all. You'll be surprised.

thanks at all again, much appreciated

@tizm: yes i can feel definitely that there is a flow but not much

at least you are right and i don't really need the air duct cause i manually set the speed of the gpu fan to 35% anyway before i play to keep the card cold. meh, don't really care if its loud or not while i play and i am always concerned about heat

going to turn the left upper fan as intake either, hadn't time yet
