Default Drilling holes laptop bottom

I wonder if drilling a few holes in the laptop case, on the bottom below the fan will actually help and decrease the CPU/GPU temps. I have one spare not so new laptop with first gen core i5, but the main issue is that while the cooling systen is clean, it runs rather hot - youtube tends to bring the laptop to about 60-64 degrees, even if power plan with 60% power limit restriction is used and the cpu itself does not go above 1.2-1.4GHz. It has integrated graphics, this is true, but the temps seem a little bit high... Even the SSD runs above 55-60 degrees, while it isnt actually intensively used...
Disclaimer - All temps are in Celsius...65C = 149F
Useful conversions. I don't "speak" imperial. Please use metric, if you want to address me.
1km=1000m=100000cm, 1inch=2.54cm, 1mile=1609.344meters, 1ft=30.48cm 1gal(US)=3.785liters, 1lb=453grams, 1oz=28.34grams
