Hey there,

Do you think it'll possible to perforate the front panel for better air flow or not due to material instability?

What 'material instability' is there in a 3mm thick aluminum panel?

Yes it's possible to perforate the front panel, and it's also possible to perforate the top.
Either one will require modding the case.
I've perforated a few panels on various builds in the past using a piece of 1/8" think perforated steel I picked up from a metal supply store.
I did some simple layout to mark where I wanted to center the pattern. Then I clamped piece to panel and went at it with a hand drill and a drill bit that matched the perforations diameter.
Far cheaper than a CNC or sending it to a shop. Allows for a customized pattern as well.
