Quickly threw together a false floor and painted it matte black.

i shall do it tomorrow then i read up a little more after i posted and saw stuff about negative pressure, was related to our case too

do i keep the dust filter in there or remove it for more air into the psu?

I would recommend to keep the filter installed.

Not true grasshopper, in order to properly clean the dust filter you have to remove the PSU. Ditch the dust filter. All it would do is clog up and starve the PSU for air. Even with dust in the PSU, if it has air moving through it it'll stay cooler than with a clogged filter.

that pretty much so sums up why i asked about the filter, thats because i've seen and cleaned the filter for the front 140mm fan one hell of a lot, i had ditched it, but i put it back in to keep the dust from coating my drives lol
