Nice work! It will be interesting to hear about the improvement in cooling.
In your second picture I noticed that there wasn't a fan shroud installed. I can't remember whether your model actually has one or not. Is it not installed because the photo was taken during installation?
My thought is that using the shroud would help the volume of air being pulled through your new setup.
