Default what do youguys think?

Well i have 2 brand new 80 mm fans that glow uv and have blue led lights. i was wondering what is to be done with them until i thought of this idea...

i could rip out 2 drive bays in the front of my case, throw some fancy fan gills on the fans and put 2 intake fans right up front.

1) what do you think of the idea, and do you tink it would even really contribute to the cooling of my system?

and 2) whatdo you think would be the best way to fastenthe fans in place, seeing as though there arnt any mounts or anything and you cant really drill holes for screws..
