Hmm, probably worth looking into.

Can i find some sort of template for making the holes?


And BTW being a complete noob working with tools i have to ask, can i use an Electric screwdriver to make the holes?

LOL....


you use a fan to make the template... I planned to mod a few cases so i just bought a hole-saw bit for my drill... that makes short work of it. thats the easiest or a dremel tool...

what i do is find where the fan will fit best and then using masking tape...tape off the area and using an old fan mark out the outline and holes... then using the holes I find the center axis and thats where i drill for the hole-saw...

drilling a large enough pilot hole you might be able to use a jig-saw with a fine metal blade but that might be slow go...

Thanks a lot.
I just bought a 80mm fan for the top of the case right above the APU, but i have stupid question :(

I don't know whatever the fan should blow air into the case or out of the case?

The red area is where my current 80mm if blowing air out of the the case.
The blue spot if where my new 80mm will be placed.

I'm able to turn the current fan around, if you think it will generate a better airflow?

Two suggestions:

IF there is a gap near the cpu cooler, see if this could fit there to guide air directly to/from teh cooler:

And if not, an 80mm-120mm fan adapter (and a few 120mm fans) would help to increase/focus airflow as well as drop noise from high RPMs (bigger the fan, less RPMs it takes to push the same amount fo air, and remember this simple rule: RPMs=Noise, higher is louder.)

Thansk a lot.
Unfortuantely there is no way i can fit that thing :( With the fan installed the gap will be around 3 cm.

To make matters worse i just figured out, that i cannot attach the fan to the case-cover cause the cover have to slide onto the actually case and then the fan encounters the side of the case.
The only way i can actually attach the fan is by attaching it to the unit holding the harddrive.

I'll try to figure out what todo when the fan arrives, for now thank you everyone :)

Why would you disconnect the APU fan? You can get a passive cooler for the APU

I'm running an e-350 in my HTPC, but i can't tell whatever it's too hot or not.

My case is an Antec ISK 310-150 with a 80mm side fan with a 3-speed fan controller.
The motherboard is a GA-E350N-USB3 from Gigabyte with a very small and maybe a bit noisy CPU-fan running at 4000RPM.

I tried to disconnect the CPU-fan and keep the side fan at the lowest speed, but i get temps at around 70c in EasyTune and 90c in CoreTemp. Then i disconnected the side fan, but kept the CPU-fan running and got only around 5c less.

In either case i think the temps get a bit high, but i can't decide whatever it is too high or not?
So i thought, maybe some of you have similar system and want to share their colling setup?

thanks a lot.

Sorry what do you mean?

Anyways i installed the fan using a little mod i made to the object stabalizing the case.

Now i just need to cut some holes in the top of the case, for the air to pass through. I can't figure out whatever to drill one big hole and then maybe buy a premade fan grill? Or drill a lot of tiny holes myself?
The last part is ofcause both cheapest and easier, but i'm afraid the the fan will generate lots of noise?
