    I'm kinda copying the Antec Nine Hundred case..hehe

    My cheapo Logisys Armor gaming case just doesn't have the cooling I like...So I ordered a 140mm fan- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835129249

    I plan on cutting a hole on top, like this- http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowI...ed+Black+Computer+Case+With+Side+Panel+Window

    The fan is HUGE in person, and I ordered a new fan controller to go with it- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813999251

    And while I was at it... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182062

    I'll post pictures when I get it all!

    A drill bit piloted hole saw would work nicely, but may be overkill. Short of that a nibbler is probably best or a Dremel. Be sure the power supply, MoBo, etc. is removed to be sure you can clean out all the metal particles from case interior.
