Got myself a nice PC A05B today!

While the 140mm top is available in Europe i decided to cut a 2x120mm hole in the top to give my 570 some air. Used the stock lian li fans on the top, NF-P12 on my cpuheatsink - front/back fan.

I did revert to the classic front => Back airflow. First i tried the pc-05an way but i noticed that hot air got trapped at the front of the case. It made my psu 50-60°c and cpucores 55-57°c and 85°c on the 570 (prime+furmark)

After changing the air-direction the psu stays cool and cpu temperature is down to 47c - 570 80c.

Are there any more mods which might be interresting to do? A front mod with Modder's Mesh maybe.

I'm planning to cut a 120mm fan hole in the side of my A05NB for an intake fan.

Would an adjustable hole cutter do the job? I've used an adjustable hole cutter in the past to cut fan holes in the side of my Cooler Master Wave Master (also an aluminum case), but it's been a few years so I'd like to get some other people's opinions. Since aluminum is a lot softer than steel, I think it should be fine if I drill a pilot hole, mask off the area to be cut, and go slowly?

I've seen people use them for plexi also. Personally never used one but from what I've seen they work great.

But I also cheated when I cut my holes. I used a water cheat. I'll join my posts today.
3 X 140mm fans will fit in the top of an A05NB. Overkill, yes, but this is OCN after all.

Is there a reason why you set your fans as intakes?

Just the way I put them in. Not even close to the final installment. But they do look much better this way. I may leave them as intakes, I'm not sure. It was a PITA the get them installed without hardware in the case. I will just have to see how things go the case starts to come together.

I've tried those before on wood and found that they never give as clean a hole as a hole saw. I'm not sure how they would work on aluminum though. From personal experience I can say a 4-3/4" hole saw does an excellent job on aluminum cases.

I just remembered. I think there is a guy here that has a video of using one of those. It was in a build log I was looking through one day. All I remember was that hole cutter and he has airplane in his garage. I'm gonna try finding it.


EDIT:
Found it! My Google-Fu is awesome! He used his on plexi so still no idea on the aluminum,

airplane was a page or two before this page if you wanted to see it too

That actually looks like a nice cut in the plexiglass. The aluminum is much thinner so I think it would probably work. IIRC the fan holes I cut in my Wave Master's aluminum side panel turned out quite alright, so I'll probably give the hole cutter a try with my PC-A05NB as well. Should save about $20 over a comparably sized hole saw + arbor bit, which I can use on another Gentle Typhoon AP15

I just picked up one of these cases the other day and I wanted to mod 2 120mm fan holes in the top. My drill only has a 3/8" chuck though and it isn't replaceable... I was planning on getting a 4 1/2" hole saw but I cannot for the life of me find an arbor to fit the darn thing. It seems all the arbor for that size saw are 1/2" chucks. I was looking at Lenox hole saws. Any suggestions?
