@green neon, you can attach a 120mm fan to the underside of your 5.25" bay.

top fans are gentle typhoons ap-15's, and front is 2x200mm fans as intake. will turning them to exhaust hurt my temps really bad?
currently my cpu is getting avg 28* and gpu's are at 23*

If both the top AP-15s and the front 200mm fan are all intake, you should already have positive pressure. As long as you have more airflow entering than exiting, you have positive pressure.

Dude, I don't think that's a good idea at all to put the H80 fans as intake. Heat rises Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
. So fans at the bottom should be intake and fans on the top should definitely be exhaust.
My main concern is with the mesh panel since it's in the "middle". I finally think intake is a much better option, to let cool airenter at the GPU level which is then exhausted at the top. But I think I'll go with 1 x 200 Bitfenix Pro at the top instead of 2 x 120, Definitely more airflow and less noise.
My main concern now are the dust filters on the mesh panels. I really don't know how to choose it and if they would fit. The only one I found is this one, I wonder if I can put 4 of those on the mesh panel for the 4 x 120 mm fans?
And overall, my main question now is: since the panel fans operate as intake, and they have to take air throught the panel + a dust filter, I wonder if I shouldn't choose more powerful fans with more static pressure? headscratch.gif
On this particular detail, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Heat rising is a very weak force, fans moving air are a very strong force. The tendency for warm air to rise is easily overcome with fans.

As for dust filters, give these a try:

Your fan selection is fine. The yate loons are good fans as they have good SP as well as decent air flow so you can use them on a rad later if you decide to. They're pretty quiet as well.

Just removed the standard graphite mesh. No mod yet. Also my first etching attempt.
Removed the mesh panel connection points on door and added my own design.

Huge Mass Effect fan so why not the SR1. Have not decided on what to place in the new panels and still waiting for the U-Channel molding to arrive.

Nice job there. I've been putting off doing my own window because I can't decide what to cut. I have a spare panel, and the plexy. Post another pic when you get your molding installed.
