you DEFINATELY need to cut out the center where the rad is bolted, also the exhaust fan in the top.



Also that kink in the hose is BAD!

by the way thanks for the picture (it helps a LOT)

There is nothing wrong with 2 fans per rad, but if you get rid of the blockage (small holes) 1 fan will work a LOT better than how it is now.

Those little holes punched out block over 50% of the air that is supposed to exit the case. The air backs up and just swirls around building more heat.
