It does look promising. I think I'll steal the honeycomb fill idea for future projects as itll save on material. Not sure about the print time though.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

"infill" will help a lot on this, but I wanted the holes to aid in air flow around the PSU a bit more.

I had to make the base 3mm larger on the top and bottom to get the strength.. I may down this to 4mm if its strong enough.. There is currently only 2mm between the bottom of the PSU and the base (4mm original) so not much for pins and solder blobs on the bottom of the original PSU.. Though this is more intended for my PSU's anyway.
