Would it be possible to remove the psu circuit board from the stock case and pop rivit or screw it to the inside top of a computer case? In other words use the entire top of the case for a heat sink. I was thinking about just drilling a few holes in the psu's heat sinks to mount it. Then build a plexi case around it. Maybe a blowhole fan to keep the inside top cool.
It's just an idea. Don't hit me...

You can take the insides of the PSU and it will work. When hooking the heatsinks to the case, remember to insulate the heatsinks/power transistors electrically from the case.

Running the PSU outside of its case, while possible, is really not a good idea. Mucho voltage going on in that thing. If you have the guts, yeah, I'm sure it can be done, but if you're going for a silent cooling method, i wolud imagine a homemade copper termal conductor, maybe with a peltier element in there, to the case would work, but that's just an idea. Either way, I don't suggest you run a PSU outside of the case.
