    ^ LoL!

    Step 1 - Buy a dremel tool.
    Step 2 - Start cutting!
    Step 3 - Buy a new case to replace the one you just messed up. (This time making sure it fits...)
  3. suppose i cut with a dremel tool...so the v6gt will stick outside the side panel ryt? is there any disadvantages leaving it that way?
  4. The reason for having a case is to protect your expensive hardware from getting bumped/broken/ruined... if your Heatsink, connected to your expensive processor, is sticking out of the side you risk damaging it... That could be considered a disadvantage...
