    Question What have you done to your PC-65's top blowhole?

    The Lian-Li PC-65's top blow hole is a damn stamped square! It doesn't lend itself to pretty cutting. Should I just hack it with a dremel cutting wheel as good as I can and stick a grill on top and maybe use some rubber moulding around it (hard for a square)?

    I don't want to cut a larger 120mm hole with the dremel; sounds like too much work - prefer to stick with 80mm.

    I was wondering if simply adding a fan spacer (another hollowed out fan) between the blowfan and the factory stamping will have any effect to warrant not cutting it to keep it pretty and effective?

    I'm going to cut it out (round) with a dremel and then add the grill that I took of of my power supply.

    I think there is an example under the extreme mod section where the person did this to his PC-65.

    Hmm; the problem is that the square is so big that if you were to cut it round it would be much larger than 80mm so you might be able to do 92mm but more likely 120mm.

    cutting with a dremel will be tough and most likely u will stratch your case, because the dremel jumps off. You will most likely break a bunch of cutting wheels. I would use tin snips and arch would say. They are green handle avation snips. They cost under 15 bucks. And then use a half or full round file.

    For a time consuming way to do it but you would have the most control, grab a file and have at it
