Guamon...the ventilation holes on the bottom could pose a problem with a PSU fan that "sucks" in air if you have it on a carpet (dust, fibers, dog hair. My Corsair 750TX sucks in air through the fan and exits through the rear of the unit. For my setup I actually want the air to come in from the bottom. With that being said, I have it on my desk and not on the floor (because of the carpeting). From what I can gather, the way you have it setup should pose no problems. Some one can correct me if I am wrong but I don't think the slightly warmer air coming from the inside of the case would present any problems at all.

I don't have any pets so I don't have to worry about that but the dust might be an issue. I'm not worried about the warm air inside the case, I want to get that 4-Pin CPU power cable to go behind the motherboard plate. Thanks for the info

I know you're busy, but I did add some clear pics, so I could at least be hooked up officially.

also, what size fans fit between the top of the aluminum case and the "top" of the case?

I wanted to think that it was a 120x120x18?

Is it normal for me to have had a difficult time getting the back panel on. I did a great job with cable management but they always seemed to be in the way of getting it on. At one point, one of the pins on the back piece broke! I rebent everything and eventually got it in fine. Should I be ok with this?

Depending upon how many cables you have back there I would say "Yes".

I could get my back panel on fine, however, it required me laying the case on its side and pushing down while sliding the cover on. It was VERY tight for me and it would have been a lot easier if I had another person!

I bought this case today I really like even though my temps went up compared to my Antec 300. The problem is with this friggin psu to many wires and a little longer than most psu's. I wish I had a modular one
