Not to mention the fact that high efficiency power supplies don't tend to get too hot. Especially if your power supply throws out more wattage than you can use. If he's got a 1kw psu then it won't really kick out much hot air at all.
Edit: You should remove your parts and paint the inside of that cavity black so that you can't see the wood! That would look pretty awesome!

Yea I'm going to paint the whole thing black but I'm stuck on weather to paint the cavity had orange with orange less or black with orange less. I'm also thinking about mounting tread plate on the bottom of the cavity under the mobo and then a piece either on the front of the cavity cover or hanging above the montitors from the bottom shelves to install a power button and toggle switch for the led

You should get one of these, would be a nice touch to the build. Also, if you're going to paint the cavity orange then you should get some different colored fans. Maybe Red or black would be better to match fans with, as you can get red fans from corsair that look amazing and provide great airflow in either 120 or 140 sizes.
Figured I would bring this thread back from the dead I'm going to start working on this some more starting with painting the fans this weekend I have changed the color theme up completely from my previos plans, it's now going to be be black and electric green the fans casing is going to be painted black and the blades are going to be electric green and I'm going to order cable sleeping either this weekend or next witch are also going to be black and green including sata cables and mount my power supply and hard rives and everything other than my motherboard below the cavity and then remove the mother board tray completely and mount it to a flat wood surface and then I'm planning on fabricating a cover from some wood to cover the io sheild to hide all the cables going to the back of the motherboard and then I'm planning on wrapping all the wood with black 3m vinyl wrap so the cavity will be nice and clean looking, what I'm basically wanting to achieve is having very little in the cavity and have as few wires as possible in the cavity and the few that are will be sleeved and then after all that's done I'm going to start on the watercooling side of things and for this I've decided for right now I'm just going to water cool the cpu for right now so I'm just going to get a expandable aio kit with a copper cpu block and 3x 140 copper rad and replace the hoses with clear tubing and the liquid will be just distilled water with some mayhem electric green uv dye, the main reason for replacing the tubing is to beable to mount the rad below the cavity closer to the ac vent and to keep from having an ugly radiator out of the cavity and the clear tubing and dye is just for the aesthetics, and I'm thinking about throwing in a resivoir so it's easier to fill the loop and to remove air bubbles, if y'all have any thoughts or suggestions y'all are more than welcome to comment this is going to be a really slow process but I will move along as fast as I'm financially able too I'm hoping to do start working on a 3d representation tonight so y'all can visually see what I have planned
heres what ive got sofar as far as the planning goes in zmod im almost done with the water cooling loop still have to finish the desk, the mother board tray, shroud and wires and im also thinking about getting the fan controller colonel suggested above and mounting it flush in the shelve in the middle just above my monitor.
