How did you create air flow at the bottom, did you cut out a circle like you did at the top? And are there any ways to add a fan to the bottom without cutting a big circle? I have the 311 too.

Honestly, there aren't many ways to do it. What I did was download some 240mm rad grill templates with 15mm spacing at MNPCTECH.com. Then I just taped them on where I wanted them to be. A bit advise: If you choose to go this route, You'll definitely need to do some heavy modding.
I'm putting dual 120mm fans up top and at the bottom. I needed to remove the case feet and install new ones. BUT If you want to put ONE fan there, you can, but you have to use a 4.5inch hole saw or a jigsaw. And you may need to remove the 3.5inch HDD bay from the bottom.

I was thinking on seeing about the temp of my rig. But seeing as it idles at 35C, i think I dont need to worry about it. When I go to OC the video card or I pick up more hdd's i might change my mind. But nice custom case. I like it stock right now and you cant beat what it gives you for such a cheap price.

Its fine stock, but I'm not the type to just leave a case unmodded:D.
My ambition is to overclock my Quad core and do it as silently as possible. My build will have 6 chassis fan in total. Not to mention I may overclock my HD 6870, so that definitely will require better cooling.

Just completed the back side panel of my case, where cables will be hidden behind the mobo. It was a long process of Bondo-ing the damaged metal and sanding. I hit it with Self Etching Primer plus a wet sand, with a couple of layers of Rustoleum Gloss black with a wet sand, then a final coat of Rustoleum Metallic black and Gloss clear .

I used Socket screws to screw in the front panel

I used some foam padding to blacken the panel. Mounted on my side panel it gives me an extra 1 1/4 inches of space for routing cables.
