I can give you one idea to improve the air flow:

http://themodzoo.com/forum/index.php?%2Ftopic%2F633-diy-case-mod-guide-corsair-900d-front-grill%2F

here's the link MNPCTech did a front bay mod. Other than that, I think no one can help you, because everyone who buys this goes watercooling this beast earlier or later.

It is very vented in the back so positive pressure might be an issue with air only. Like others have said the 900D is a water cooling case however it's possible to air cool it until that transition happens. That's what I'm doing going from a H80i to custom WC loop on CPU first and then I'll add my 7950 to it.

I'd like to watercool CPU + 2 GPUs but i'm way too amateur to build a proper system.

Also as I understand such a rig would require maintenance (drain the system and refill on a regular basis) and I just don't wanna bother.

Actually You could air cool the heck out of this cast.

4 120mm intake bottom window side
2 or 3 120 mm intake bottom off side
3 120mm or 2 140mm intake front

1 140mm exhaust back
4 120mm exhaust top

There are possible variations on this.

Be prepared for 2 things
1 -Fan noise
2 - 200 people on the forums will tell you that it's a waste to buy a 900D for air cooling only. Ignore them, It's your rig, but trust me they will freely tell you what you should have done.

Air cooling has improved dramatically and there is no reason you shouldn't have a huge case just because you want to air cool!

Let's get more photos going guys! I want to see some more of those bad to the bone cases!

Crappy phone pics don't do it justice. Can't wait til I can get the gear I need to expand the water cooling.
