I have a serious question about a Lian-Li PC-7FWB I ordered, I have a Thermaltake Toughpower 750 PSU and was thinking of mounting it with the fan facing down, well the case has no ventilation on the bottom and I was thinking of cutting a hole in the bottom and mounting a grill to vent the heat, is this a good idea or bad idea?

You wont be venting the heat, the psu will be pulling air in, which is fine also.

I am about to get that case also, and the psu mount "seems" roughly a quarter to a half-inch elevated from the bottom.

Edit: Unless that Thermaltake actually blows heat OUT of the 120mm fan?

The fan will just draw cold air from underneath the case, therefore keeping the PSU cool, which in turn means that it will perform better and supply power without any losses.

All the hot air gets exhausted out of the case through the rear vent of the PSU.
