as for your case, its a nice setup. i was going to do the same thing but i'm too cheap to buy the bz-502. i can actually mount my h50 on the lower front 120mm intake but the hard drive cage is in the way. the hx1000 is too long to move the cage on the other spot. however, im happy the way it is so that's how it stays i guess.
i also have a few other lian li's and i really miss the mobo tray when working on the v-1000. just makes hiding cables so much easier.
ps: wow that's a lot of fans. even oced, i don't think you need that much.
No I don't overclock. I use my rig primarily for Autocad apps. About the fans, mine is a Plus II that came with the upper exhaust. I had added the front fan to balance the airflow, two supply/two exhaust. Yeah I thought about the lower front mount but there's no way to route the pump up to the mobo and I don't think the hoses are long enough and yes the inverted mobo does give a little more security if the pump failed we might escape with minimal damage.
