That gives you lots of room and airflow for the 480's, and the two fans you have on the bottom of the case help their cooling a lot.
@ZombieEinstein (love that name:p)
I can't speak for neSSa, but I had to top-mount my psu because I've got triple-slot Zalman coolers on my 480's.
He has his 480's spaced out far apart so the bottom card would have also clashed with a bottom-mount psu.
His cards are stock 480's, the stock Nvidia coolers come that way with the heatpipes showing.

However HAF 932 has only 7 slots and one PCIe GPU is the last to hit the PSU. This is the reason. GPU is the reference edition Asus GTX 480 from EVGA backplate. I plan to buy another and activate 3xSLI.
Yeah - that's pretty much been the only reason I haven't done SLI yet; PSU issues. It's either in the way or not powerful. Now that I'm in my HAF X, the first issue is now a non-issue - but it's only a 750w, so I'll need to upgrade that if I want to do SLI.
As soon as Specs and Prices on Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge-E are out, I'm going to start pricing out a major overhaul. I think the only things I'll be keeping will be the case and DVD drive.

That's good to know I've always just assumed that powder coating, since it isn't applied chemically, was impervious to everything (that wouldn't also damage/melt/explode the panel) short of abrasion.
I've played with worse though. Much, much worse. Boiling ammonia to make a Ferro-fluid, 5 Mol hydrochloric Acid for various reasons - both of these for the funzies. I take stupid to the next level sometimes. Industrial paint stripper would be one of my lesser undertakings - somewhere between boiling ammonia and working with epoxy resin.
