Does Asus Q526FA-BI7T13 come with only one of the two vent grid opened?

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm new to the forum so forgive me if I have the wrong title, tag, bad grammer/english and or question.


I just got an ASUS model Q526FA-BI7T13 as a gift from a friend who bought it from amazon. (view the full spec from best buy)

And when I opened the computer I noticed that one of the row of vent grill was completely sealed.

Would that a defect or is there a reason for that.

It's by design, or rather, design flaw - Asus do this apparently because they can't be bothered to engineer a proper cooler.
