WOW! That's pretty amazing. I never thought you could fit an entire functioning ITX build that is almost the same size as the actual Mac Pro! And I love how you actually used a trash can to make it lol

Idle chipset temps are a little high aren't they?

Also I probably would have used a High CFM fan on the bottom like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA3SD1AM2105 and a lower CFM fan on the top like a thermalright ty-140 which provides ~ 75CFM providing positive air pressure.

Another addition to consider would be a drop down top like the mac pro and putting wifi antennas between the fan and the plastic top.
I would try this cooler (or similar, the bigger the better):

Plus: make a duct (tunnel) covering the cpu cooler as usual in tight server chassis.
