I want to cut a blowhole on the side of the case...

u can get them at lowes

just buy some heavy duty grinding disks and a sanding block for the dremel and cut away,the use a sanding block and clean everything up.

got lowes or home depot and look at the attachments

I used a drmel for my holes... I simply put a screw in the center of the hole I want to cut, use a string and guide it that way

Hey, don't take back the dremel. You can find a million uses for it once you start thinking about it. Wish I had one. I've almost bought 1 a thousand times.

Bala, dremel's rule.......and it's not hard to cut a hole in your case with one...just slow.....take your time. and a grill will cover any imperfections.

I love mine....I use it for all kinds of things.. carving things out of wood, polishing small objects...stuff on my bikes.....

I have two dremels, one variable speed and a fixed speed one. I LOVE mine. Play with it all the time. Go to Sears, they have a knock-off version(really a dremel, but with Craftsman stickers) and have tons of attachments for em. I'm wanting the extension myself, looks like a nice add on.

hmmm...
well I started cutting some..

but as it is 2am and my sis woke up I gotta work on it some more tommorow...
If I put a fan right above my CPU in the side panel of the case (I have a Socket A Athlon 1.4ghz).
Should it be exhausting air or pulling air in?

thanks..
I still hadn't gotten around to cutting it yet..
but I will post pics after it's finished...

I was thinking about painting my case as well...
but it seems like it's not an easy task...
wet sand, dry sand, this and that..
funk that...
