|-- Making a Blowhole
-- By: GideonX

Having taken very simple physics in high school
and college, I figured that since hot air rises, an exhaust or
'blowhole' would be the simplest way of getting rid of heat. I will
be using a 92mm Antec fan to do my dirty work. I used a 92mm grill
to draw the hole.
Here are some tools you may need to get you along:
- Dremel (multi-pro)
- Masking Tape
So I began chopping
away at the top of my case for that perfect blowhole. First
off, we need to measure where exactly the hole and circle for the
fan will be. I just used the grill to trace a simple outline:
For the next step, I used masking tape to go cover
the surrounding area of the blowhole to prevent any paint chipping
and so forth. It also provides a very safe area to cut since if you
slip, you won't scratch your case.
Now I slapped a cut off wheel onto the dremel and
cut around the circumference of the hole. After cutting the hole,
you would want to use the cone shape bit to sand down the hole to
get rid of the burrs. I strongly recommend this! Don't run your
finger along the hole after cutting it like me, unless you want some
nasty cuts on your fingers : (
After getting rid of the burrs, punch some holes
in with the drill bit, put the grill on it and you have yourself a
sexy looking blowhole :
There you have it, after being online for over a
year, we finally realized we didn't have a blowhole guide up!
A very simple process, but effective in the long run. Anyway,
hope this 10 minute guide helped you out!
