I would take that piece of wood off the side or cut it down a bit to allow for better airflow on the side of PC..

Is it enough airflow. . . . . well put some temp monitoring software on it and see.
Put it thoruhg a stress test and monitor.

Chances are it's fine.

I did leave 1 important part out but it also has 2 200mm fans on top and the clearance between the top of the case and the desk is 2 1/2 inches

As it's been said, just put a temp monitor program on and watch it.
