Post Mod Squad: Desktop case modding

Read Rondog's latest guide on case modding here:
http://www.aoaforums.com/frontpage/content/view/850/30/

He shows you how to cut holes for fans and windows, fit lighting, spray paint cases and tidy cables.

Thanks Rondog! Feel free to ask him questions here.

Nicely done, Ron, nicely done.

I love the clean window cuts. How did you get them so smooth?

I would love to say I did them...

Professionally done. I wasnt game to use an angle grinder myself on something so big and I dont have a holesaw kit. Ive never worked with metal before.

Big good quality hole saws are quite expensive - especially if you're only going to use it once. A 114mm saw and arbor costs about £25 in the UK. You might be able to hire one for about £10.
