    Great mod.

    Think tidying cables will also help to lower temps.

    Maybe more venting and fans?

    Lovely jeep as well btw.

    there are 2 fans (1 intake 1 out take) in de frame itself.
    it is not possible to put more fans because there is no space and we can not make extra holes because the case has to stay autentic

    perhaps you can buy another small radio or comms module, mount it on top or on the side and stealthily watercool your processor?

    I'd suggest using centrifugal blowers, they take up about the same space as a axial fan on it's edge, but they can move a whole lot more air. With a little ducting, you can have one pull air into the case to directly cool the CPU and have the other pull hot air out of the case.

    Axial fans can't generate much pressure, if they get too much back pressure, they stall and move no air, a blower will generate a high pressure, good for running a air duct to the CPU and other critical hotspots.

    Of course your last resort is water cooling. Is the radio shell aluminum?
    You could use it as a passive radiator by running copper serpentine loops on the inside that are epoxied to the shell with thermal epoxy. You'd probably still need a small radiator/fan for gaming heat loads, put a thermostat on the fan so it only runs when the case cooling isn't enough.
