Just use a 50mm (or whatever size you think best) hole saw.

i like that -ish bit!

just a thought measure how wide the cooler is and then divide it by 3.5 so you can get 3 holes evenly spaced and maximum flow!

Ha ha, I havent had time to measure yet, its about preference really. You could drill loads of 25mm ones and stagger them.

I went mad with my front bumper one day... Went at it with a jigsaw rather than a hole cutter...
Maybe a bit extreme compared to what you were thinking though :lol:
