Actually I didnt use one of those crankle paints.. First I apply a ultra thin layer of paint and rapidly apply a very thick coat on it(with same paint). Thick layer kind of shrinks on thin layer I guess. By the way the temp was low when I was painting. I used sellousic paint (we call it like that in Turkey,its odour is very distinctive and hazardous, I think it can be called organic based kind of something in your country. Its not water based,neither syntetic based paint. Usually cars painted with them)

I think you are cooling your psu worse than before.
if you look at a normal psu (1 fan in back)
there are only small holes in the back and/or bottom of the PSU
few small holes means little waves of air , but very fast

now you have a lot of holes , and the fan can only push its max of air

what we have here is al lot of slow air moving thrue the entire psu instead of a faster flow through the components that really benefit from the cooling

Did those parts killed because of bad PSU cooling??? Anyway,very intresting theory. I can't say that I'm convinced but actually thinking on things you say... I think it wont matter too much as I dont use lots of power from PSU. I really want to hear more opinions about this psu cooling thing, if you folks can write I'll glad

if you mean these things :
"kills : 2 mobos , 1 stick ram , a lot of hd's , 2 bugs , 1 ant"

no they didn't die because of bad psu cooling

i'm gonna do some research about this , will reply if i can prove that what i say is correct

edit : i would also suggest to lower that hard disk ,would result in beter hd temp.

I agree with Bonbon.

with such a PSU housing, the fan in the PSU sucks a lot of air that does not cool the PSU. it will draw most air from the half the side and bottom of the PSU

the big heatsinks at the other side of the PSU will be cooled very poorly

actually i have tried this before, but instead of that holed aluminium , i removed the top of the psu (= bottom if installed) , the fan was temp controlled , and i noticed the pc produced more noise that before.
(it measured more heat , spinned faster , -> more noise)

I installed it back like before and the psu was silent as before.

edit: is your videcard onboard , or just not installed when you took that picture?

so you don't think that the extra layer between you and the FAN had anything to do with the noise?...

if u have a dual fan psu, you wil have a fan that will suck that hot air into the psu
that would be even worse then
i don't think that sophron's solution is a bad one
