Off topic, but it looks to me like all your lower fan will be doing is starving your PSU fan of air, and causing unnecessary turbulence near your graphics card. I'd take it out and block off bother lower air intakes, and just use the front intake.

Likewise for your 2 top fans - they will just be pulling air away from your CPU cooler and spoiling the airflow in the top of the case. Block them off and just rely on the rear fan to clear out the air (and you'll likely be quieter because you won't have a direct path to your ears from the top of the case being open). If you need to use an extra air intake in your optical bays, but keep the air flowing nicely from front to back across the whole case with no direction changes and you can get much better cooling with much lower noise.

Might have some value with metal prices being so high currently. Not sure who would take it off you though, as there will be an awful lot of other crap that needs properly disposing of in there though.

Someone actually might give you a few dollars for it on Craigslist etc though - people here 'enterprise' and 'Xeon' and get all excited...

I considered many air circulation scenarios.

I asked here on OCN on what the best airflow would be, and this is the best we came up with.

I will consider your suggestions and test them out though, as I'm gonna be putting a 3rd fan on the cooler soon.
