Nice looks, but the cooling solution makes me puzzled.

If I understand it correct there's one fan pulling air in at the top, blowing it straight down. The PSU has a fan that also suck air in at the top(?) venting the heated air into the case at the lower front.
The front itself, as well as the sides and the bottom, is essentially closed.
All heated air is supposed to exit at the rear.

Is this correct?

Then I see problems with dust build-up inside if the case is placed in the open.
If it's placed in some furniture I can imagine heated air being recirculated through the case.

Cheers

Olle P,

Fans when installed on the top of the computer work pulling air from inside the case to the outside. This happens because as you may remember from your high school classes, hot air goes up, therefore the most logical solution is to add a fan that keeps the natural airflow.

Cheers,
Gabriel.

So the rear mesh is the air intake?
Still quite a risk of causing a (semi-)closed loop for the air.

Cheers

No disassambly of the PSU?
