Since then I have found the power supply draws air from the rear of the case, while the channel I thought went all the way through to the front fan is actually blocked at the front.
ATM, it's not such a big issue because the case has more depth than my desk does...lol. So, it's not pushed in all the way, and there is a large gap at the bottom allowing air to flow to the bottom fan.
Instead of raising the case, which will decrease the room for ventilation at the top, I think I will modify the front bezel inside. I'll (hopefully) cut a hole inside to allow the bottom fan to draw fresh air from the same place as the front fan does. I'm not sure if this will work, but I have some parts arriving tomorrow so I will look into it further then.
I've attached a couple of pictures of my bone headed error and my PC's house. (no, really, I MEANT to do that). You can see the gap at the bottom front of the case the fan is using for ventilation.
