Kinda mhe on the design since we got the option in the bottom for either way with the same sized rad
Oh that's an easy fix then. Turn your rad around.
OK, not what you want to hear.
There's looks to be only ~22mm or so of a top at the front of the case above the 5.25" bays. If I understand you correctly, you're wanting to cut some or all of that away?
About 7mm from the front there's an indention in the top panel. That crease goes all the way around the opening at the top to add rigidity to the top panel. If you are not going to need to cut across that indention then you would not affect the top panel's rigidity at all, but I suspect even if you did it wouldn't matter a whole lot. The case wouldn't fall apart, and once your rad is all screwed in it would lend some rigidity back to the top in any case. Assuming you are wanting to be able to slide the rad forward a little more it would also affect all of the screw mounting locations too, but I assume you already know that.
FWIW, I've got my 360 in the bottom with the ports towards the front, and with the HDD bays in the forward location the mounting holes at the bottom don't all line up. The case was definitely was not designed for the rad to be put in that way, but I didn't need all of the holes to line up as I only used a few of them.Edited by Unicr0nhunter - 12/23/13 at 6:32pm
