Is this a common sort of problem?

I would imagine a case of this sort would be meant specifically
to avoid that sort of thing, especially since they tend to be
a bit pricey. I am planning on building a system early next year
with a specialty case (HTPC) and if there are ones to avoid I
would certainly be interested in such information.

Hmmmm.... putting a "brand name" PC into a generic case?

This sounds like something bound to be problematic. The "branded"
PC vendors always seem to be pulling some shenanigans that make
cross compatibility problematic.
