Default need some advice TJ07 airflow!HELP!!!!!

Okay so this is the case (no pun intended), i have a TJ07 and im worried about airflow because to me it seems like theres only exaust out the rear and the top, but wheres the intake?! i understand there are 2 HDD cages in the bottom but that doesnt intake any flow across any of the mobo or my gpus.

I'm thinking around front bay intakes right now, so i've seen people move Antec 900 cages onto the front of the TJ07, looks alright and will do the job.
However most of you know that the TJ07 and most of the silverstone series are based on simple , SLICK designs. I've also seen the silverstone frontbay 5.25" to 3.5" cages ...i dunno if they're worth $60 a piece though.

What can i do to get front bay intakes while attaining this slick look? anybody?
IMO, the antec 900 cages would break the slick look with its wider grills in the cages..
If worse comes to worse...i may get 2 silverstone 5.25" to 3.5" HDD cages with front intake......2 on top of one another may not be the greatest either...HELP!!!

I actually don't mind the Antec 900 Cage mod. It looks great + provides some more intake.
