May be you are trying too much. Siam Reap is a nice place to stay even without the Angkor, as is Sihanukville. 1 day to get to sihanukville, 1 day there and a day to get back to PP to fly out is a bit of a rush! I personally, would have a shorter time in CM, but is your trip!
In case you haven't read all the warnings; be careful of BKK to Siam Reap trips especially any thing from Koh San Road! Another way in is public bus to Trat and then to Sihanukville and from there up to SR.
Also beware that the departure tax from PP is US$30; cheap PP to BKK flights need to factor that in!
whatever you end up doing it will be a great trip!
