Welcome Snyderman! Takes an effort to get caught up from the beginning at this point. I hope you find it worth your time.

It's like any job really. There are people who will do well with it, and people who won't.

Here is another one of my custom pieces from CaseLabs. It's a revised bottom plate for the pedestal:





The normal bottom plate only has the finger holes in it. Like this:






My revised bottom plate has 4 fan holes cut. My airflow design is up from the bottom and out the top. I wanted to pull in as much fresh, cool air from the bottom as possible, so it required some fan options down there.







I'm happy with how it came out, and Jim has proved incredible to work with. I'm sure they can't go out and promise to make anything someone one wants in order to get a sale....but my experience has been that if you are already a CaseLabs customer...they will bend over backward to make you happy. I see a lot of custom requests in the forum, saying "if you do this I will buy". My recommendation would be to get one of their regular cases first and play with it for awhile. They are incredibly customizable in their standard form. THEN....if you have something that you would like them to do...they will keep you happy.

The only negative about my new bottom plate is.....NOW I HAVE TO BUY MORE FANS!

Spending over $1000 on fans and needing more isn't normal.

 

But on money it is.

 

Money

Not even once.

I don't think fans will help much. The ones you have installed pushing the air out will create underpressure and it'll suck air in from the bottom. At least that's what I think. You could test it out perhaps.

Just buy 4 of these, make them red then seal them. They will make a great reservoirs for that XL window.

The bad news, they no longer make those. It was a limited run and I had forgotten that I had them.
