Yes. The 3.5" bay is an external bay with extra holes for use as an internal HDD bay, so you can use it either way.

the 180mm front fan can be replace by a 140mm right?

I think this was mentioned earlier, but it's actually better to leave the hard drive cage in even if you're not using it. Leaving it in improves CPU temperatures, particularly at lower fan speeds, according to Tony Ou from Silverstone.

Has this been tested and verified? It just seems more logical, to me at least, that less obstructions for a fan equal more airflow thus giving better temperatures. Removing the fan filter gives your better temps and this has been tested. I could totally be wrong though.

I personally haven't tested it, but Silverstone themselves said that it did...

Mines out and I have no complaints. I just think it looks less cramped and cleaner without it.

Well yes, removing the filter should allow more air to flow through at a given fan speed, so this should improve temperatures.

I'm no expert in fluid dynamics, but the theory goes that the hard drive cage keeps the airflow in a straighter path towards the CPU heatsink rather than being spread out to the other parts of the case (some of which don't need any cooling). Even AP fans--particularly at lower speeds--need some help in maintaining the perpendicular column of airflow.

Some hard drive cages, mostly those facing the side of the case, probably do impede a significant amount of airflow. However, this cage doesn't intuitively look like much of an obstruction.
