If it weren't behind the right side panel door of which is completely out of view I would consider heat shrink
Not sure I can be trusted with a heat gun

I have never found it hard to remove.
True that. It is easily snipped off with a small pair of scissors (such as toenail scissors). Just don't use the good stuff with mastic inside.

I usually use a hair dryer although I have used a butane lighter and, rarely, a small propane torch. I have used matches on small shrinks. When I briefly worked on an underground line construction crew roughly forty years ago, we would use a large propane torch fueled from a 20 lb. tank (the kind often used on large BBQ grills). Those shrinks were freaking huge compared to the ones we use on our computers.

I've got plenty of time before I'm ready to fire it up so I might heat shrink it

I moved the liquid cooler to the front instead of the top where there was no room,
Then rearranged the wiring and tweaked the air flow a little,
Edited = flipped fans

I suggest having both top fans as exhaust. Having two fans that close together blowing in different direction could cause nothing but poor directional air flow.

Forget the power supply fan. It probable isn't running most of the time anyway.

Is their a location on the bottom of the case where a intake fan can be placed?

If their is I would try removing the top intake fan and installing it at the bottom.
Or you could have the fans on top both exhaust and add another fan in the bottom as intake.

I would also recommend blocking all holes that are not being used for fans.
That way you can control where the air comes in and the path it takes to the exhaust fans.
It also helps to keep a positive case pressure.

Notice the back panel on my case. You can see the fan but no other holes.
The air must come in the front and bottom and travel through the case and exhaust out the top.
Their are no other way the air can travel.

This is what I call directional air flow. Just blowing air around in circles inside the case is not good enough.
