Sorry, I did not take pics when setting up. However I can say that the Phanteks EVOLV SHIFT case was extremely easy to build on as all of the panels are removable and you can pretty much get to anywhere you want to. Even with large hands it was not a problem.

I just purchased another 120mm fan and I am going to have it pull air in from bottom of the case and I will move the AIO to push hot air out the front. The upper case fan also pushes hot air out the front. I will try to attach a diagram to display my theory.

The Phanteks case design has an inherent flaw in that the front plate covers the fans and funnels hot air through the side openings. I have seen posts where folks have actually cut into the cover to allow air to flow but I don't think I will be going there. As a side note, I have noticed that temps drop drastically when I remove the front plate when gaming. Even with these issues I still love this case :)
