HAF XB questions or insight

Howdy all. I'm currently in the market for a new chassis for my AMD system and before I was about to pull the trigger on a NZXT Switch I saw the review of the HAF XB and been reading/watching reviews of the case. It looks pretty darn awesome and just appeals to me so much. My question is, I've noticed that the PSU mount sits right below the cutout for the motherboard tray. I'd like to know if there is a chance for the motherboard to be shorted out because of this fact. It seems fairly close but I'd like to know other peoples opinions. Thanks everyone.

For reference.

    For normal users and in one word NO.

    I have this case which I'm going to be doing a transfer build for my brother and there's space between the mobo and PSU. If you are so worried about the mobo making contact with the PSU (if you put an anvil on the mobo :lol: ) then if the PSU fan is facing downwards as it should you can layer the top of the PSU with electrical tape. :D

    This case ooozes quality.

    OCN has a thread on this case and I suggest you read it for information.
