Heat rises, but only if uninterrupted. Since it is interrupted by literally anything, it's a moot concept to concern yourself with in reality.

Looks like a nice rig, OP.

Looks awesome to me.

Someone correct me if im wrong, but heat doesnt actually rise, heat spreads from a place of high heat to low heat. For example, if your house was 100% insulated from the outside environment, and you only had radiators on the second floor, the heat would actually drop in an attempt to spread the energy equally.

Not sure how that translates to PC cases, as i reckon fans/airflow would basically negate the rule, and the heat would just go wherever its forced.

You're wrong

Heat makes the particles move more, and so are more spread out and so are less dense so they will rise higher than heavier colder particles. In your insulated house, this is ignored as the heat all disperses as it has nowhere else to go. In a non-airtight container - ie - a pc case, the heat will rise...

But - you are right about the fans negating the laws of thermodynamics in a case, so it doesnt really matter

Looks good.
Definitely white on the top.

I'm undecided about the rear exhaust though
