Help creating airflow holes template

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My PS3 just suffered the YLOD. While I wait for the liquid flux I ordered to arrive in order to complete the reflow, I have decided to cut a hole(s) in the bottom of the case directly over the fan to allow cool air in. This is a mod that is relatively common. I have a couple questions. Should I just drill one large 90mm hole, or some pattern of smaller holes? If i go the pattern route, I have no idea how I would create a symmetrical template so that it looks decent. Here are some images of similar mods:

use a center punch to put a small hole where you want the center to be. use a compass to draw a large general circle with a silver sharpie. Then using a protractor, mark along the circles you drew in even intervals of spacing and use the center punch at all those points. then drill all those holes out.

Or just print out a template and use the center punch through the paper.
