There is no top panel with filter on the foto, but I use it.

I repeated the pic because it is so beautiful. Very clean looking. I quoted both comments because I agree with them.
What else I would do is to get a Klein nibbler, and remove the rear grill. Failing that (and I can understand not wanting to cut such a lovely case), you'll need a rear fan comparable to the fans in the heatsink.
I wish I had had a nibbler when I cut out my rear grill. Removing it with side cutters took a long time, made my hands sore and required lots of filing to make the hole approximately right. Removing my slot pillars OTOH was essentially no trouble because I had a nibbler. What a difference!
So, don't try it without the right tool, but I would remove that rear grill.
Edit -- do remove that foam from your HD. I tried something like that and removing the foam dropped my HD temps by 7c.
