-- Front Intake Monster 1.1!

   I saw how the case came with a plastic front holder for an 80mm fan. How the hell is this supposed to draw in enough air to cool all the components in a full tower case? Barely enough in my mind, so I went out and bought a very nice Sunon 120mm fan. I decided to tear a bigger hole in the front to bring in more cool air. Here is a picture I took before ripping the front intake. Notice how those standard tiny holes are catching all that dust without letting any air in. So I cut through the front, totally :

Turd!

   Again, I measured up the dimensions of the fan by using the grill. Penciled in the lines and shapes, and here is how it looked:

Almost there...

   Now I stuck some masking tape on it again to prevent any accidental movements on my part. The only thing you should look out for is that the front plastic cover is very easily melted by the very fast and hot spinning Dremel. Do this outside or make sure you are in a very well ventilated place. The smell of melting plastic is enough to make you barf. Go slow or you'll have a very ugly looking mess. If you have the Multi-Pro, use the 5k-10k RPM setting. That is enough to cut through the plastic very neatly.

Taped

   You should be seeing this type of severe burrring with the plastic. Don't worry, just use the sanding cone to get rid of those pesky extras.

burrs

   Apply the grill and you got yourself a very neat finished product!

Done!
