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?

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.)

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.

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