Default Re: Small mod on my Gigabyte Aurora 570

I actually did in fact use a glue gun lol.

I normally use epoxy but I couldn't seem to locate that darned tube.

Theres a picture of a mod I did a while back with an old server case where I cut something like 11 80mm fan holes using a hole saw.

Thats also what I used to cut this one.

4.5" hole saw.

The general idea is to get some fresh air to the area around my cpu a la the mosfets and northbridge, as well as my graphics card and memory.

If I help you with something, you think I'm the bomb, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the star under my post.

I need to buy a hole saw. I'd have so much fun with it, I'll definitely need it for my next project, but that wont be for a while. My next mod will be fairly expensive.


Maybe I'm a Lion...
