The HDD cage is working as a fan duct, with 1 fan at the front, and the other with tierips at the back.
There is a "tube" at the back of the HDD cage, the tierip goes through that "tube" and through the fan holes.

Aah. Ok, tyvm for that. Plus your pic with your fan controller on the inside helps. I was wondering how I'd be able to keep my Scythe FC. But the inverse mount seems to be the answer.

hows the air flow in that case? How many fans do you have running and what are they? Look like the FD silent series

No problem.
I have the fan on the outside now, pushed it a bit into the case.
Doesnt look perfect if you open the door, but at least you dont have to open the case to change the fan speed.

The airflow isnt bad at all.
It really depends on the fans you are using.
Its not as good as the haf, or cases like that but it keeps my i7 and 470s cool enough.

I have 4x140mm FD fans, 2 behind the door, 1 behind the hdd cage and one on the side. 1x120mm FD fan behind the 5.25" bay, and the stock 230(?)mm fan.
3x 120mm scythe s-flex 1900rpm fans, 2 on the HS and 1 at the back of the case.
And a 40mm FD fan on the NB.

A total of 10 fans.
The rig is pretty silent if the gpu's are not stressed. Once the gpu fans are at 60% or above they'll make more noise than all the other fans at full speed.

2x 120mm

Thanks to Bastiaan_NL for the inspiration and help for mounting the fan on the HDD cage in the Define XL. I didn't had any FD 140mm left so I used 2 Corsair 120mm fans that came with my H70 (which I replaced by a Noctua NH-C12P SE14). The result doesn't look as neat as Bastiaan's because of the fan size and the fact that my black tie wraps are quite short so I can't use the tubes on each side of the cage. Anyway, Here's a couple of shots.

img2192v.jpg
Yep, the Noctua screwed my black/white/red theme but I am way happier with the NH-C12P SE14 than the H70, mainly because I am not overclocking and it provides better cooling on the NB.

img2191qd.jpg
This is how I mounted both fans. It helped reduced the temps by ~2C on each component. I'm getting CPU: 31 MB: 29 NB: 41 and SB: 31 at idle. Fans are set to minimum via BIOS.

img2178r.jpg
And finally, the Define XL in all its glory beside my previous rig, a Dell Dimension 9200 which I sold earlier this week to a coworker. It served me quite well and I'm kind of sad seeing her go. Oh well.
