Well you have a traditional setup going, what do you mean by weird pressure?

Have you considered flipping the top fan to intake air?

This thread also has a lot of very good information for case airflow.

If the airflow is front to back, and if you remove the rear grill and fan, your air will have an easy exit. See item 2 in my sig.
