i think 1 is more effective
but,i have silent frio 12 cpu cooler and i think top left side fan dont Will be installed (no space?!)
The question is this
Which option is better?
If the first is better but does not come out, the second option will make sense?

Although they (Corsair) don't say it, it appears that you can put 3 fans in front. Therefore, if you were to add two fans, I'd recommend a third fan in front and one on the bottom blowing in.

3rd fan on front (on bottom) will cool HDD Cage, and not very effective.
I think he will be more effective on bottom of case or on top.
