    Why are you saying stuff like that (not to be a backseat mod)
    but it is a very nice case and i like it

    id say its worth it, my case had an 80mm hole already, and since heat rises it does drop the temps a little bit

    Maybe think about installing mesh instead for passive heat removal and increase ventilation it has its advantages of not making any noise itself and fans can either pull cool air into the case or push it out depending on your fan configuration in the case.

    good idea

    well in the front of m case i have a 80mm but it makes alot of noise so i will be putting in a 120 or 140mm fan then that vent and then that vent hole should be good

    If you have a 140mm available then use it. Problem is they don't make 140mm fan grills IIRC.

    they come with 140 to 120mm splitters but then it is less flow and it makes a little more noise not sure why

    also in those pics it looks like my cpu fan is stopped man i have a good camera lol it was going

    No, they tend to ruin air flow a bit and they add an a good amount of noise. I hope you never put cups on top of your case because if it knocks over, it's going to fly into your CPU.


    Do what you want though.

    You could also use the 140mm and the mesh to cover it.
