I have been giving this case serious consideration for a new build, Question 1. Can a 120mm fan be modded onto the front? Next question, How much if any would adding a blowhole in the top help in regard to cooling? I have access to hole saw bits so I can go anywhere from 80mm-120mm in regard to the size of the blowhole. It is a nice looking case and seems to get good reviews and any money I save when purchasing a new case can go towards other upgrades in a new system.

1 - I don't think so but you should be able to ghetto mount a couple 120mm in the empty drive bays since its mesh. Keep in mind that they will be significantly restricted but its still airflow.

2- A blowhole will always help.

That case is NICE. I was considering buying one to mod but decided against it.

For the price it seems like a very nice case, I have a dremmel so I was hoping to do a little cutting and add a nexus 120mm in the front. It's amazing how hard it has been to make up my mind in regard to which case to get for my first build. I have been all over the place, p-180, Tsunami, Lian Li, Finally I just figured I need to make up my mind because I keep adding extra money to the project and the wife is going to eventually shoot me! Bottom line, I figued if I was going to try and cut corners anywhere I would rather do it with the case than the PSU, Processor or any of the true performance related items.
