Does it not work anymore? What parts are you looking for?

Looks like you just learned not to put a case right next to a heater Lesson learned for you I guess.
By the looks of it, it looks like you can buy a 3rd party case for it. Does the system work still?

I guess heat is an enemy to your pc in more ways than one....lol

If it still works and everything then I wouldn't worry too much about it, it's just the looks that are screwed up.
