Mine were pretty long, certainly no issues with being too short.

Those renders are insane. That certainly looks like it would require all that power. After I bought the black case the red one came to NewEgg. I reaaally want the red one now.

I switched my second top fan out exhaust and its been running quieter since. Not sure about the temperatures just yet though. They might be cooler, but then again they may be warmer because I don't have a 200mm side fan in my case.

Ok shademaster lot´s of info right there^^

My concerns: With the h70 rear mount that blows exhaust air into the case ...my concern is that it could heat up the ram before beeing sucked by the 200 mm exhausts...

I have a GTX 295 and it disposes a LOT of heat ....so that travels up the mobo and RAM too before reaching the 200mm exhausts ...and as the 200 mm intake blows ....it would just mix with the hot air from the GPU and HDD´s and not really supply the mobo with cool air...and from what I have seen the 200 mm intake is soo high that it couldn´t even fully reach the gpu even if it was mounted on the first PCI ....

So what do you think would provide perfect air flow considering an h70 rear mount?
pl state precisely^^ what you think should be in and outtake.

I had a crazy idea^^ maybe turning the mobo around ...therefor the gpu would be at the top which would be perfect because the heat exposed from it would not interfere with the mobo ....the h70 would be directly supplied with much cool air from the side 200 mm intake and the gpu would also get a lot more air from it because it would just be so much higher.....h70 would also benefit a lot from the 140 mm ....and if at the bottom 120 mount was there it would be supplied from 3 sources^^ and it could all be sucked out perfectly by 120 mm rear and 2 x 200 mm top exhaust just a crazy guess but pl concetrate more on my first question

Oh yeah and two minor questions^^
1.)How do I know if the phantom case I am about to buy is the version with lower the 120 mm rear mounting holes so that mounting an h70 would be easier?
2.) Is there another way to get the optional fans without being forced to pay 25 dollars shipping on amazon??
3.)This one is important^^ Does ANYONE know yet if the sidepanel fan can be mounted with the h70 mounted at the rear???!!!

Alright here is a very simple mod using the second 200mm hole for h50 rad mounting. I used a push pull config and some simple zip ties to hold the assembly in place.

My question for you is why did you do this?
The best possible way of airflow in the case can only be achieved with h70 rear mounting. That way NO fans have to be removed and airflow will be perfect.

With your mod you are not only killing airflow....your temps are gonna be terrible too because the h70 is sucking on some hot rising air your radeon and hdd´s are disposing.

Looks like your temp sensors are off too... mine say I idle between 18-20 degrees LOL... my ambient temp is like 22 degrees. I'm willing to bet they're 10-20 degrees higher than indicated.

Yeah I add 15 to be safe my Prime95 temps are 43 under load. From what I have heard the CPU temp in HWmonitor is actually a good temp to go off of but i don't want to push it.

Are you overclocked at all Es?

Yeah. I'm pushing 3.5ghz over 2.8ghz stock right now. It's not much but my CPU was never a bottleneck anyways. I'm going for 4.0 ghz this weekend
