Front Intake Monster 1.2!
The inside metal is a lot harder and thicker. I
decided to not put masking tape around this time. Since it was gonna
be inside my case, I took my chances and did it freehand going
around the pencil mark. It took about 3 cut-off wheels to finish it
off. So make sure you buy enough of those things! I drew up lines
with a pencil again :
There are sparks in this picture, but the flash
kind of took it out. Make sure you have gloves and goggles on at
this point, it hurts to have shooting sparks coming at you:
This is the result. A very large hole that
provides very little air disturbance and noise. Slapped my 120mm fan
in there and its ready to go! You can see my feet in the picture.
Don't laugh, those slippers are very comfortable.
One more thing, while I was cutting the hole I
noticed that the case speakers had to be moved. So just take a pair
of pliers and open up the brackets holding the speakers, and move
them somewhere else. I just used plain electrical tape and put them
to the side. Very simple.
