No, the side 230mm and front 230mm come intake Top 230mm and rear 140mm were exhaust, I flipped the top 230mm to intake kept the 140mm as rear exhaust and placed a 120mm in the front 5.25" bays. I get better temps the way I have it set up, though to get the full affect I would have to remove the rear fan and cut the grill on the case, not in favor of doing that to the case so I didn't touch it. It's really all preference in my opinion.

This thread is what I have my system based off of: http://www.overclock.net/t/1041926/how-to-decide-on-a-case-for-air-cooling-warning-pics

Worried about heat or it not fitting? If it's fitting you will not have any problems what so ever, if you are worried about heat you could put a fan in the GPU duct that comes with the case or if you choose remove the duct, zip tie a fan to the HDD cages and have the fan blowing on it pushing it out the case.

Oh lovely an Antec 300, I don't like Antec cases, especially the ones that look cramped.

I would not pay more than $350 for a HD7870 at this point, which is a bit high as it is given the GTX 670's performance at $400. I would also not pay more than $250 for a reference HD7850 and $260 for a factory overclocked one with a better heatsink. That Sapphire HD7850 is worth holding out for, that cooling design is superb. The prices of these cards need to come down to about $225/$300 for the HD7850 and 7870 respectively, IMO.

Just an aside: The Antec 300 is an antiquated case in terms of internal aesthetics and cable management, but it looks classy from the outside and has unparalleled cooling capabilities. It's still a solid case, but with options such as the NZXT Source 210 out there at similar prices I wouldn't recommend it unless you intend to mod/paint it smile.gif
