That case looks really awesome.

Question though, is it better to have the PSU on the bottom of a case or the top?

Looks like awesome cooling, especially the top mounted 200mm fan.

I like it. Looks original, and very well ventilated. :)

Personally, I think it looks like crap. Very, for a lack of a better word, disjointed.

About your question, though. It's GREAT to have on the bottom...if the bottom part is blocked off from the rest of the case as it is in the P180. However, how THIS is set up...holy crap! Video cards and processesors run hot enough without 500+ watts of heat radiating under them.

Eek... I wasnt even paying attention to the placement of the power supply. That looks like a really bad idea to me. My 7950 runs at over 90C when its overclocked and under full load. My PSU runs at over 60C at the same time. To have the two almost touching is absurd...

Oh wow I didnt even notice the PSU went on the bottem...bad idea to not block it off... :(

I would not worry so much about the heat. The case has three 120mm fans and one 200mm.
The power supply should also suck some heat away. Like my Power supply has two fans, one intake from the case and one to exhaust the heat.
Enermax claims; "Our dual-fan power supplies are highly recommended by AMD."

Now the beauty is in the eye of the beholder and sometime is hard to say by pictures only.
Like I love my Antec P160W, it looks much greater than any pictures of it I did see.
Also very practical and little under $100.00. To me it looks much better than any off the $200-$300 cases I did see.
Only sure it can use couple more 120mm fans or one 200mm fan like the Antec Nine Hundred.
The Antec P160W has two 120mm fans, maybe I should mod it.
I like this optional "Thermaltake Side Panel" with 250mm fan.

Nothing like that for Antec yet.

I have a case with a 250mm fan on the side and it works great. I love it.
