First attempt at PSU Cover.Opinions,ideas

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well i had been kicking around the idea of a trying to hide a few wires and add a little pop to the bottom of the case so i ended up trying this.Still in beta stage as i am not to sure if i want to keep it this color or try a new material .Keep in mind this is still in the Beta stage,and ignore the material under the HDD i was test fiting a panel i was working on also


started off with a base of plastic from a for sale sign then added a top layer or a felt like material .Not really sure what it was just had it laying around to test it.So what is your opinions guys or what should i change,Still trying to think of ways to improve.So let's hear it

I was originally going to run the cover uncut all the way up to the HDD rack but i noticed a 1-3c temp gain if i kept the Cover completely flat all the way across

I was going to cover the part in front of the psu that sits vertically but was out of material to test.Final draft will all be covered if i can ever find a material.I think i need to go with a black material as i think it would blend better and create a better overall look
