The space is so tight that it can hardly fit everything inside and my main problem atm is if i should open a intake hole for the psu fan on the side panel.

Doesn't the top of the case have vents? I'd add a vent if necessary.
Good luck! thumb.gif

Yes but the top vents are for exhaust fans. I am talking about fresh air directly blowing on the PSU because my PSU's Fan has a little space to work since its blocked by the side panel

UPDATE !!!!


For some strange reason i have lost the photos before the paintjob phase frown.gif


The colors i used are:
Happy color Stucco Primer.
Happy color Smalto acrilico white.
Fast Spray Rosso.
Color Works Black.

Not the best quality of paints but i think the overall result is decent.



Just painted the Radiator Fans.
