Yes and yes. The h100i radiator will need to be mounted on the against the ceiling of the case.

What games, what resolution? Yes as it is, it will fit...with room to spare. The 650 will comfortably fit another 670 with much more storage.

You will not need 2x 200mm fans once h100x is installed. The rad will take the place of the top fan, and the front fan is up to you.

I see no problem for 650D. It should be ok.

Should add about the front fan, it is loud. Drawing air through the grill directly in front of it and pushing through the hard drive cage directly behind (1 or 2 depending) creates a lot of excess air noise, so much so that I've unplugged it. I'm going to relocated my 3.5 and ssd into the 5.25 bays so I can remove the hard drive cage all together to see if that helps, otherwise I'll be modding two 120mm's instead of the big 200 up front.

My point being, save your money on the 200's for now to see if you really want to run the fan at all. Those CM fans are about 10 db's quieter, but I'm fairly certain the excess noise is simply from all the obstacles. I'm running two 660ti's without the front fan and my GPU temps are pretty steady already, with a single 670 you'll prob be fine.

Most 140mm or larger fans that they place on the front of cases have a tendency to be a bit louder due to the grills. I would get rid of the single 140 and swap out for 2x120 for better air and noise.

650D is notoriously bad for this too, as it uses an outer grill for dust and an inner as well so you presumably don't get hit when it's powered up? I cut out the metal inner and still was not satisfied, although it did get a bit quieter.
