@Kung_Pow, yea that seems like it would be the best way. It is how the guy did it in the demonstration video above, no? Its best to fiddle with it though once you actually get the system. Sometimes some components just get in the way and have to be moved around.
Well I could have put them in fugly cases, doing this costs almost nothing extra and gives me an awesome looking renderfarm that is way quieter and cooler than a normal farm. I like everything I do to be 100%, if you want renderpower you might as well dress it nicely .

Man, I love this case. If I wasn't going Micro ATX, I might have done it. Great looking case. I currently have the Vulcan, which also used the 200mm fan. If anyone wants to sell their 200mm LED fan, I'd certainly buy it from them.

Maybe I'll upgrade to this later on... who knows? Keep the pics coming.

New Phantom owner chirping in. I quite love it! I started my build off with a no-name case that was a gift from a good friend, but my system was hankering for a replacement sooner or later. I was torn between the Phantom and the HAF 932, but a nice sale came along recently and I could not say no! Got the best in last Thursday, and I was not really prepared for just how big a full tower is in person. On the plus side, I've got more room than I know what to do with, and all the little nuances from the tool-less HD cage to the cable management system made it a very smooth transition from my old run of the mill case. And if I might add, she is dead sexy in person.
I'd highly recommend it to anyone that's in the market for a sleek and builder-friendly full tower. Also, I'd recommend the black, but that's just me.

You can imagine Animations take up quite some time. The Porsche animation took 4 months to render on a 8 core MacPro (can do that quicker but I wanted high quality).

Even with 20 computers I'll have to be careful I don't do crazy stuff and mess up the rendertime.

By The way, my Red one just arrived . It is darker red than I expected, really digging it so far. If you see all 3 them next to each other they look like some Sci-Fi space super computer haha!

Thanks for sharing! Seeing them in person the first time always has this WOW effect .

1.)I think mounting the h70 at the rear is the most clever way to preserve perfect airflow.
It will suck cold air from the outside of the case and the hot air coming out of it will be sucked in by the first 200 mm top fan. The second 200 mm fan will be intake and supply cold air to the case for GPU and RAM mostly.Side Panel fan also intake.
Bottom for the PSU.140 mm intake.
And the 2 x 120 mm intake.

2.)Alternative:
h70 draws cold air from the case that will be supplied by the first Top 200mm that will be turned around as intake and pushes it out of the rear. Second Top 200mm as exhaust and rest equivalent as in the first solution.

Thats what I think would be best in combinatin with the h70 what do you think people?
That config should provide perfect air flow give me your oppinions on modifications or changes.
Your number 2 alternative sounds very plausible. Only problem is the exteme thickness of a dual fan 70mm radiator. It sticks out into your case so far that it might not be able to suck out enough air from the top fan.

I have noticed that when the GPU starts heating up you can easily vent it by removing the second smaller HD cage so the second fan of the sidepanel blows fresh air past it. Also the side panel fan does a lot to bring in fresh air that also get's used by the radiator.

If I place my hand on the side of the case I can actually feel which parts of the case heat up a lot and the spot were the radiator is in the drive bay you can feel the case being quite warm to the touch. The Motherboard/GPU region is very cool. If you set the H70 to blow air into the case it heats up the case a lot (unless you get rid of the heat with 2x top fans), I still don't like the idea of multiple hot regions close to each other.

The cool thing about the H50 and it's tubes is that you can move your 'heat' around in the case, I figured that putting it in a region that is one of the coolest would not interfere with the heat of any of the other parts of the computer. If I would ventilate that area well enough I have 2 separate heat generating areas in my case that both have their non interfering airflow.

So far my theory seems to work really well . My temps went down a lot and my motherboard does not overheat anymore! I even tried a 4.4 Ghz OC with HT on at a ridiculous 1.41 vcore and even THAT didn't require the fans at maximum blast! Usually my mobo is showing red lights everywhere telling me to stop the pain, while benching all the lights remained green. The CPU did reach 91 degrees so it isn't recommended for 24/7 use. Still my highest and coolest overclock ever though!
