Yeah, the NH-d14 is pretty big.

Is this a good 120 fan? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835106149&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-Case%20Fans-_-Thermaltake-_-35106149&cm_sp=&AID=10440897&PID=3938566&SID=

Sleave bearing and noisy but offers pretty good airflow.

The airflow in my MK-1 is like this.

2x 200mm intake front (push pull at the HDD cage)
1x 140mm in the 5,25" bay outtake.
1x 200mm side intake
1x 120mm bottom intake.
1x 140mm rear outtake.
4x 120mm top intake on rad push pull.

So, what this means is that I get outside air into the rad, and the hot aor gets exausted straight away through the back and the 5,25" top.

The rest is all intake as the MSI Lightning GPU is largely external exaust and needs a LOT of fresh air.

PSU is facing downwards btw.

This, out of the many configs I tested, gave far superior temps on both CPU and GPU.

Now, as for 200mms being crap, yes, they are. But they look better. And my case above all is a show case for LANs and such so.. Strictly Enermax 120/140s with blue LEDs and strictly Bitfenix Spectre Pro for the 200s.

This is what I'd do, in order of increasing cost:

1)

2) As you are now (front 200, top rear 200, rear 140) plus one 140 intake on left side panel.

3) As 2) plus one 120~140 intake on the floor.


I'd also cut out the grill behind the rear 140.
