accually ... a holesaw does better here

to check if your airflow is bad just leave the side panel off for a while

if you see significant change in temp then yes you do need some more airflow and will need to install more fans...

making a blowhole isnt bad.... but say you dont want to take everything out to doit right?

then just put a say 80mm or 90mm fan on the side panel where it should be hovering over your cpu fan
