HHmmmm, upon closer look at the case photos on Newegg, you may be right. It appears the panel seperating the lower section is solid (originally thought it was open at the PSU).....since this section is isolated, outside of Duke's idea to mod a hole (covered with mesh or a grill) under the PSU, it looks like either way would work about the same.

I own the case. I mean, having worked with it about two months ago installing the Seasonic I would be aware if there weren't a gap. But I had the same exact concern when installing my PSU - actually my main concern was which way the Seasonic was suppose to go in.

Anyways - there definitely is space at the bottom - the pedestal is open at the top and bottom - and both top and bottom back plates have grills so air can flow whichever direction you place your PSU. I still think placing it normally as you would if it were at the top of your case is the best way to go.
