    Acer does not put a simple fan grill to their notebooks?

    Well, i have seen this in 3 notebooks so far.. including mine

    in the manual there is an exhaust grill over there.. N 6



    But all i see is this..





    I found this on internet, somebody just cut the plastic away and put a custom grill..



    Im out of warranty with my notebook, so i accept opinions, im about about to do the same...

    Wow. I am sure glad my AO532H has actual air holes. That is quite the manufacturing flaw.

    There's no problem cutting that portion out and using fan grill in its place. Just make sure it doesn't connect/make contact with anything other than the grill and the plastics of the case. It won't hurt the system and more than likely would only help.
