Windows 7: Case stability

Case stability

Back with another question I cant get answered by googling for days, I want to party remove my 5.25 inch bay, by looking at the image attached I would like to remove the part colored red, the blue part is something I have to keep atm since my motherboard plate is connected with those 3 rivets, but the red part is not really attached to anything other then those 3 rivets but im not sure how the chassi would be if I removed that part, personally I cant see that it would be a problem but asking to be sure. The reason why is because im removing the default front panel and making a new one that im planning to have 2x 140 fans mounted on.

Edit 1: after a closer look with a flash light it seems like the motherboard plate is locked in position with a piece that is part of the core chassit so the rivets and 3 screws that are there seem to be there to hold the 5.25 inch bay in place and not the other way around.

1st Stability issue
I just experienced my first crash (using build 7000 from MSDN)... the whole system became unresponsive. It seems like it iTunes could have caused the issue. Has anyone else tried using iTunes?
