Side window mod in perforated metal

I am replacing the acrylic window in my Lian-Li side panel and I am considering replacing it with a sheet of perforated stainless steel. The idea here is that before long I will have water cooling in this box and I want to at least reduce case fans. The perforations will allow extra passive air flow. The sheet I am looking at is 3mm thick with 3mm holes in it and is effectively 33% open. I don't want the panel to warp or dent which is why I am looking at stainless steel.

This is how the panel looks with the window removed. Any suggestions on alternative materials or ideas?
