That won't help at all. The results can be seen here: http://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?t...37#pid3337

A few holes here and there don't help that much. Either you place an annoying fan directly 10mm above of SoC and DRAM and use the heatsink the Pine folks currently develop too. Or you design an enclosure standing upright, using large vents on top and bottom, ensure that there are at least 20mm room above the heatsink so that convection can jump in. When no airflow is possible around the SoC a heatsink is also pretty useless.

Using the A64's internal thermal sensor it's pretty easy to check such things (at least when running a Debian based image and using RPi-Monitor). But usually enclosure makers trust in optical effects that have close to zero influence on improved heat dissipation.
