use the drive bay covers and create like a vent looking appearance to cover it, or use a fan grill for it fan grills look cool if you get a lazer cut one

it was such a hassle though, and i tried to look for a vent of some sort, but couldnt find any, i like it the way it is for now, until i can find something to cover it.

With a razor-blade and a pair scissors, You could cut up a old DVD case to fit the hole, Cut a custom grill into it, Then paint it to match your case.

Good luck
