How can i mod this barrier between my Power Supply and main chamber? (Safety screws)

I would like to cut a fan vent into it for more airflow to the GPU, is that somehow possible? And would that give me any cooling advantage? 979926363_Screenshot_20230328-1035272.thumb.png.2d9df55b7b7c00b46c292d277d5d2e2e.png

If the case floor is closed removing the shroud won't help...

But i could Install fans into the shroud and drill holes into the backpanel, so it can get air from the side.

Which model case is it? Can you show the screws (or rivets?) that are holding in the shroud.

 

Cutting a grill in the PSU shroud likely won't do anything for your graphics card temps.

Where will you drill holes on the back ? The PSU prevents it...On the case floor ? Then with no filter you may have plenty of dust

Is the GPU temp that bad ?

These are likely some kind of rivets. I thought of also modding the backpanel so air can get through the backpanel up through the shroud. I would drill holes into the shroud for a fan.

I have some space between PSU and shroud, like 2cm, and also some space next to the PSU between PSU and drive cage.

No GPU temps arent that bad i just want to turn the GPU fans down more for less noise.

not enough space to put fans, and just 2cm holes won't reduce the temp at all

Then just do it, as long as you're below 80C you're good

What card is it ?

I would install them between my PSU and the Drive cage. There is about 8cm of free Horizontal space at full PSU cage hight between the two.

is that an rgb strip on your gpu? what brand and length?

Dont forget to mark as solution if your question is answered

Some case designed to have holes on the PSU shroud to install more fans, and I think it will help GPU temps a bit. Unfortunately your case does not. It's up to you to mod it or replace your case
