Little uneven but for a first timer thats cool. I did the same thing almost to my old case couple years back and put 4 80mm fan holes on the bottom of the side panel. Needless to say i didnt use 4 fans ever. But it was fun.

thats a pretty good effort, ive modded a Dell case and theyre a pain because of the double layer (plastic and metal) i cut the round dell logo out of the side of my dimension and replaced with perspex and put an extraction fan up the top. I cant see the metal layer on that, did you cut it out all together? can we get a pic of the inside?

man it bugs me how it's not centered.

I'm not a case modding pro or anything so I'm not saying like that, it's just one of those deals where I see it and I imagine it being in my room, and it'd just bug me.

Wouldn't really consider it a full on 'case mod' though......more like a quick side panel mod
