Do you mean the motherboard I/O (and PSU) will be facing the bottom of the case?

Moved this to the right subforum.

Now I'm having a little bit of a hard time grasping this. You're saying all the stuff that would normally be on the back panel well be on the bottom? As in, you'll have to plug everything in from underneath the case?

No problem mate, if it has anything to do with case mods, we generally stick it in here. :P

Well, I guess that wouldn't be a problem as long as you had the clearance to fit the plugs.
