You should touch up the paint while you have the case bare.

Might be hard to get the dust out of there though.

Wel, most of the parts with the bad paint are the spots where the rad mounts to the case and rubs against it.

With the new rad in place, it covers up the ugly bits.

It's offset to the side opposite the motherboard I/O ports.

Everything else has enough clearance to go between the rad and the case.
