I would turn the 140mm fan so it blows into the case, otherwise you might get shortage of air in the case and it will suck in dust from outside. Also the 230 mm pro fan is a bit loud on highest rpms, so if you want to have quiet PC you will need to regulate it to 500rpm or so, which also lowers the air intake (or you might want to buy non-pro version which is quieter but the performance is still good). You definitely want to get more air into the case than out of it, that's the key point.

Quiet PC is not exactly my priority but it's welcome... I think that I can manage fan rpms both through corsair software that come wiht the h100i , and the mobo fw.

Alternatively you could get the no pro 230mm, those are dead silent from what ive gathered.

As for the back fan as an intake, id say that is not needed. 230mm fans push a ton of air, this alone will create positive pressure inside of a case (so long as you get the black version with mesh front). Also if you had the rear as intake you would need to add a dust filter to it, not a hard thing to do but just keep it in mind.

Corsair H100i can only control PWM fans (which the spectre isn't). As for your motherboard's control, most don't have a slider option. You only get full or auto

Plus rear fan as intake will suck warm air from PSU. If You want positive pressure stay with 230 on front and 2x120 on top.

As for Phobya Xtreme 480, I've done some measurements (I think someone with empty case would do it better).
If we make some "dremeling" this rad should fit.

Well I wont be afraid of the hot air from PSU as there will be almost none. He has got a 650 W 80+ Gold PSU. he wont be using more than 300W during load, so the PSU will not heat up that much. Most of the time the air from the PSU exhaust will be cool enough to cool the radiator on top.

230mm is enough to provide positive pressure, however if you get rid of the fan at the back, the air will move in freely as the rear top fan would suck it in. you can place a filter there with no fan. but if you have a free fan (e.g. one of two you got with a case) that you can use I would put it there on lowest RPM settings (use adapter with resistor or fan controller), It will only help I believe.

I have a dremel ... I'm actually quite interested by this possibility. If I could run 7.120mm of rad space in a prodigy I'd be happy

Well. You want to put there 480, 240 and 120/140 ?? biggrin.gif
If You fit all that rads in there it will be f....in tight wink.gif
And I think top rad and fans have to be mounted external.
