Hi again. I posted thermal paste for GPU and a cooling issues with PC case. In the results of PC case after taking off the front panel where highly helps with system and hardware but not my GPU. I was reading on Google search to maybe find the best thing to making my PC much, much more cooler than it is. Which is really good but not so much GPU cooling down. And I so want to buy mod panel for my PC case in the front of it where the front fans are at instead leaving wires hanging out with the front panel off with the wires attached to it. I have purchased last night the artic mx-4 paste for my GPU and think about PCI blowers to give my PC case and GPU a more accurate cooling. Plus looking for front bevel panel for my PC for better airflow from the front to the back.
Just wanted to know if any website sell front panels for mid size cases for better airflow instead of buying pc cases just because of one thing wrong airflow design. Yes I still holes in the front panel but not really good airflow. This front panel has power supply switch and reset button and USB cable and everything else attached to it. I'm concerned about those wires will short out in time because I'm letting it hanging with panel.

Thanks for your help

If taking off the front panel doesn't help cooling the GPU, why would you try to change a front panel?

Yes :) I'm looking for online for perfab replacement front panel with good airflow the will fit brand DYIPC Diamond F-1 model. I haven't seen one yet. I would love to get rid of the one I have and replace it with a better face. The chassis is really good condition just having bad airflow because of the bad front bezel panel design. System temperature are 29-45 ° degrees Celsius with the current bezel panel off idling and gaming and CPU is staying within 50 ° degrees Celsius like before much more than that 81 CPU and 67 system with the bezel panel on. But the XFX AMD RX staying in 80s and up. So I thought like to get it more cooler than that I'm having. PC case is good temperature without the front bezel panel and like more cooler than normal. But I'm stuck without any front bezel panel and wires are still attached to it hanging on the side with bezel panel.
Thanks:)

Get you a Enzotech universal GPU block and build a bong if you want real cooling.

You could even hot-glue funky lights on it it.

Have you decided on a powersupply?

Rx570 whats your specific model number, you may need to consider a better case too.

XFX AMD RX 570 I don't know what version I'm guessing it a RS maybe or X version. I don't know how do I find out off it xxx or rs edition. It came Used with one woble Fan but I replaced it with new ones last week.

Oh yeah about the possibility of power supply I'm going towards the gold 80+ about 500-600x thermalake or the other top brand which I don't remember who to spell it. Something with EV?? Brand

Case works great without the front bezel panel but leaving front panel hanging by it power switch and USB ports, reset button
I have been looking for a replacement front panel but not yet found one. I might to make one or nicely cut bigger holes for airflow with a ruler, sharpie, ratory tool.

Look at cases with a mesh front or plenty of vents, also front intake fans on a case should have high static pressure and exhaust fans in back should have higher cfm.

Graphics card temps in the 80s are normal and expected. Mine run at the low to high 70s under mining load with a modified fan curve, reduced power target, case door off and box fan blowing in. Any time you look up a review the rest of the components are usually top notch... check any CPU review and the graphics card will usually be a 2080Ti, for example. They're usually using really good cases too, or even an open air test bench.

Finding a front panel that matches is almost impossible since all cases are designed different, so you might wanna buy another case

I use a fox 2 blower pointed between my gpu's to get good temps for the upper card which is the one that has restricted air flow. I've removed the metal pci slot shroud so the blowers air flow is unrestricted and also no worries about it touching components and shorting them out (I've got it dangling from my hdd rack via heavy copper wire).
