If anything, that front fan should be intake, if not, perhaps installing some bottom fans as intake (This would be ideal as cooler air is lower to the ground)

My CM690 has two top fans for exhaust, one large fan on the front as intake and two lower 120mm fans on the bottom as intake. Ideal setup, imo.
hot air doesn't rise in a case when fans are involved. Air doesn't have a choice where to go, the fans push it in the direction they are designed to. Take a thermometer and take the temp in ur home at 5 ft and then 1 ft off of the ground. there is barely a temperature difference. It is so small if is unlikely readable by the thermometer u r using.

About 1 inch from the power supply between the radiator and the power supply. You'd cut the original hard drive bay from the case up into two 3x towers and drill them in side by side.

I've ordered my Antec 300 series case, now to acquire $130 for liquid cooling.

Well I got kit at home but this weekend I'm going to really busy so after the weekend I'll start the project of fitting 2 hd 1 ssd and the 240 rasa kit inside the antec 300. Hopefully I can do a very nice write up.
