One of my really old gaming machines would overheat in its stock case, so I had to take the outer case off and run a house fan to the side of it to play games on it. Worked great back then, now it gathers dust.

Keep in mind that you will only be getting an estimated 40-50% of fresh air from out side the case. The other 50-60% will be recirculating the air from inside the case there is too much material between the drilled air holes.
Good idea though.

I would cut out a hole instead of drilling holes, and then use a mesh to cover the hole to make it look nice.
