  1. A good Dremel tool should do it. With the amazing number of attachments you can do about anything with one.
    Hell I cut the exhaust off of a Buick with one using cutoff wheels once lol.
  2. Haha, and do you know what is the general measurements for a cut?

    Well it really depends on where you are cutting and what you plan to run through the hole. Hard to generalize. Just measure based on the cable size.
  4. Hey I just recently did a side panel mod to my antec 300, it took me about a day over the weekend :D . I haven't gotten to doing the cable management, it's okay as-is right now; here's some pictures:
  5. I wanted to cut some small holes for cable management in my Antec 900 cases. I used a nibbler tool to cut them:

    But for long straight cuts, a Dremel tool would be easier.

    You should use something like this to protect the edges of any holes you cut:

    Yes, a dremel to cut out a hole for the PSU cables and a jig-saw to cut out a hole for a window.

    yeah I used a dremel for the entire window because I didn't have a jigsaw, and as for the edging on the window, I just sanded the edge a bit with the dremel and used electrical tape to save some money.
  8. o.o Ok cool :O Thanks guys.
