Interesting printer. For your powersupply issue, can't tell by the photos or your video, but if it is using a standard 12v/24v hobby powersupply like most chinese printers, there are covers on thingiverse that can be tweaked to work. I have one for my 3DP-17. It does two important things: adds a power switch, and covers the wiring lugs.

Also, with a little fiddling, you might be able to get a CR10 fang part cooler to mount on there.

I'd rather have a E3D Titan Aero in it's place :)
