    Well, the 3000 RPM fans dropped the temps by about 5 degrees, but they are insanely loud.

    I tried making the fan curve less aggressive, but the industrial fans have a 6 pole motor instead of a 4 pole motor, the motor in the industrial fans don't undervolt nearly as well and they don't like going under 60% through PWM.  So I decided to give up on the overclock, but on the bright side, the modifications that I did allows the CPU to turbo for a much longer period of time. 
     
    Now for some pics.





     
    The new case allows for much better cable managment, this is probably the cleanest build that I have ever done.
    There are still a few things that I can do, I don't have a USB 3.1 header on my motherboard, so the front USB C connector is a dead port right now.  I can get a USB 3.1 header card though, I also have 2 USB 2 headers that's not getting used, as well as a USB 3 header, so I can get some PCIe USB brackets and take advantage of the 2 vertical PCIe slots that the case provides. 
     
    I can't do audio monitoring with the elgato plugged into the PCIe x1 slot, I'm guessing that it's a latency problem since that slot is going through the motherboard chipset, I can still record the audio, I just can't monitor it, so I'm going to get a long 3.5mm to RCA Jack and plug the monitor's headphone out into my mixer.  That would be a more elegant solution anyway. 
     
    As you can see, the top fan is right up next to the CPU cooler.  I actually had to position the fan so the blades didn't hit the heatsink or fan clip.  It's very effective at being a secondary CPU fan, so much that I removed the second fan on the CPU heatsink, so no more push/pull setup. 
     
    Removing the dust filters and spiderweb like plastic frame did help the case with dissipating more heat, but I no longer have any dust filters for the intake or top exhaust.  I'm not worried about the top exhaust, but I'm ordering 3 Silverstone magnetic dust filters, the mesh on those are incredibly fine, and they will make a good replacement that should perform better then the stock, thick ass dust filters.
