I understand what your saying but I did have it behind the acrylic portrait at first and it just didn't look right thats the only reason I went with where it is now. I do have a second side panel anyway just incase I change my mind but only have 1 piece of acrylic so have to be careful with that.
As for cooling it shouldn't really be a problem as I'm going to go down the water cooling road soon so I plan to switch my rear fan to intake and have a big rad on top outtake and leave front as it is, that should be more than enough to cool my system. I may decide to put a fan back on the side panel at a later date though maybe 2 80mm fans one on top the other on the bottom left of the acrylic so just to the right of the screen but at the moment I wont bother.
Appreciate the input anyway and if anyone else has any ideas/suggestions please do post!
