Instead of larger feet to gain the extra clearance, you could try a few washers between the case feet and bottom of the case. Don't worry, I don't mind doing a diagram for that either, if need be.

Thanks and how can i cut plexi and case cover? Is there any tool to cut it? for example utility knife?

Since the case is metal, you're either going to need a rotary tool (Dremel is the common brand)+reinforced cutting discs+shank, or a drill+jig saw with a metal blade. For the plexi, it depends on the actual material. If it's a thin material, you can use a hard edge to guide a utility knife. You don't need to cut all the way through, you just need to score it fairly deeply, and then "bend and break" at the score line. For thicker acrylic or plexi, I've seen others use lots of things, from the rotary tool, backwards facing circular saw blades. Ideally, a table saw with an acrylic blade would work, but that's a pretty pricey investment to put a side panel window into a computer.

Pricey? I think tools are expensine , right? If i borrow them it will be cheap, am i right? And what do you suggest me to do with cables? I did my best but i am open for suggestions. And about fan grills should i buy fan grills for two 8cm fans?

why the bottom fans would blow the air inside the case, why not outside?
