I know it's probably not too important but what is cooling the area inside the red border? I would poke a few holes in the side duck tape to let the stale air out.
Just a suggestion.
Theres nothing to cool, no stale air.
Cool air is forced in by the 80 and 50mm fans, over the cpu and gpu heatsinks and then out the back by means of the talismoons w/ air divider
If there was any warm or "stale" air it would escape from the holes in the top of the case
As for the holes on the left side of the case, I figure that most are covered by the HDD anyway so...
I havent taken any real temp measurements but im sure that what I have done will greatly help the cooling.
I orig had a prob with the 50mm being too loud (aprox34 db and 17 CFM) so I ordered an Evercool (<23 db and 9.59 CFM) which was much quieter then the Sunon although it didnt move as much air. I just ordered another Evercool which moves 12.38 CFM with a db of <30 so well see how that works out.
Once again, thanks for all your thoughts... keep em comin

I loved the colors you chose for the RoL. Nice looking mode, though the external fan makes me think of the air intake on a hotrod car. XD
"bad to the bone"
I honestly dont mind the fan on top... I actually like the way it looks and how it functions.
