    Well no matter how stupid the topic may sound im being serious

    I want to cut two holes in the side panel of my case and mount two 80mm fans, blowing air in and i was wondering the best way to do this and also there is a mounting for a 80mm fan at the back of my case, but the air flow is rather restricted, i was wondering how i could increase the air flow, by cutting more holes

    this is probaly very cofusing, but thanks in advance!

    Why cut just drill alot of small hole then 2 or 4 for the size of the screws you are going to use to hold the fan(s).

    Great help site DarthInsinuate but minds cheaper and already have the drill bits.

    Why isn't it very efficant when thats all most cases come with I have a desktop and had to do this because they ain't no space for a fan at the back and the one in the front was U/S.

    from the site that darth pointed out (thanks)

    A lot of times cases will have holes where a fan (usually an 80mm fan) was intended to be placed. See:



    These block a lot of airflow (up to 60%), and since they are very easy to cut-out with a Dremel tool (or the tool you decided to use), we cut it out.
