    Started with some MDF for covering the PSU and the Arduino.
    Working with the sanding machine for a couple of hours now on 'the windtunnel/psu-cover''
    I'll post some pictures tomorrow before I start painting it for the first time.

    The 120mm fan blows air partly through the SPU, which is a push-pull configuration because I took the the 2x40mm fans out the front/inside and mounted 1 on the back of the SPU (trashed 1 fan for noise cancelling)
    Normally this SPU will shut it self down ones it's sees 1 fan is missing or broken.
    I thricked the GPU by soldering the 2x3 outputs wires on the PCB SPU parallel that way 1 40mm fan is fed by two outputs.

    The 40mm pulling fan which thricks the PCB of the PSU (this sounds nerdy )
