How to cover CPU vent?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have an aftermarket cpu cooler that requires that I remove the CPU vent duct in order for it to fit. The heatsink fan pulls air from the bottom of the case (not from the vent side) and therefore it would likely be beneficial to close off the vent, since now the rear fan is just pulling air from the vent and out the back (rather than through the entire case). Do you know of an easy way to close off the 80mm vent?

Thanks very much.
