Neither am I! haha The PSU doesn't have a vent on that side, my hope is that with enough positive pressure (the intake fan will far exceed the PSU fan, and it's very likely I'll use the XT140 in the top panel as an intake) that won't be much of a problem. I'm more concerned that the only way anything could escape the case is though the PSU, if the PSU fan isn't spinning that *seems* like a worse situation.I would imagine it actually worsens performance of the PSU as an exhaust fan because it will draw cold air from that vent as well. We'll have to see, though, I'm not a fluid-dynamics engineer.
I'm curious to see how you improve the Metis. I wanted to do something like that to improve airflow if I made a build with it. Pretty neat case otherwise.
Thank you!Love the progress!
I'm as surprised as you! I'll update the gaming temps a bit later tonight for completeness..but so far it's had no real trouble dealing with anything I've thrown at it.I'm very impressed with the GPU temps. So many people understandably had issues with those in the metis, and some just drilled holes in the top, but the combination of your mods to the GPU and the case seem to have alleviated that problem.
I like the ring lit ones, but I already had this one Are you talking about the Termaltake ones?Have you thought about using a differently lit fan? These four LED fans always look awful in my opinion, I like the newer ring-lit types much more.
Yeah, with the first 5 the media tags added by themselves, I went back and added the rest manually but I got a 'no more than 5 images' error. Is there a better way to embed them?Some pictures weren't embedded correctly, maybe try to fix that.

- Dismantle the case so I can paint the outside panels
Thank you! I'll see if I can get some slightly better photos to show what it *actually* looks like.The color looks quite good, well done ! The added airflow really helped too !
It's CAM from NZXT: https://camwebapp.comWhat software is that?
Thanks!The paint job looks great!
Did you use a drill to cut out the fan hole? it looked pretty rough at first.
