The photo isn't complete without the rat that belongs in there 😉

I am now more concerned about the use of no-name power supplies than I am on the waste of space on some of these builds.

Shamelessly stealing this from a thread where someone was asking for help over on TechPowerUp:

There's supposed to be a GPU and sound card in there, but I don't think that would change much.
Nobody is going to point the fact that both case fans are set as intake 🤔 ... I'm glad for the 3 removed pci slots and cable management, though. Otherwise the airflow would be totally compromised 😂

The person posting the pic said the PC was built by a local company. Not much of a credit to their skills, apparently :p The PSU is also quite dusty, which makes sense given that it's the main exhaust with this airflow layout. But it also looks like the PSU fan grille is covered with ... thermal paste? It's probably just dust + a bad camera, but that stuff looks weird.

To be fair though, with that open fan slot in the front, there's plenty of room for air to flow out there and get recirculated by the front intake fan 😅

And why did they use the brilliantly compromised bottom front fan position? 😆The one above is unused and would be offer unrestricted airflow 😂
