Air vents and overheating and access to side ports

I am wondering if the macbook pro retina can be used in the thule gauntlet 2.0 case without it heating up. If it can be used in the case- is there a time limit due to heating up?

Are there any design provisions made for the air and heat vents on the side and back?

Also, when using the computer in the case is there room for accessories like cd-rom or usb to be plugged into the side port while using?

    The outside of the case has a contoured design that allows for airflow under and around the computer while in use. However, with the precise fit of the MacBook there is no way to access the ports while it is in the case.
