|I've thought "The hardware is sh*t, it might as well look prettier"
Also added a manually bent TO-220 (a transistor/chip packaging standard) compatible heatsink with some thermal grease (any cheap kind) and two metallic plastic wrapped paper clips to hold it tight. The little spikes near the middle are there to apply some tension with pliers after being put in place.
Beware when opening these plastic things, use some gloves as I cut my pinky deep with a PCB pin. The front part comes out first. The case has no screws.
