What I would do, is take the side panel, and place the fan where you want on the side panel. Mark where the screw holes are going to be. Then mark the circle. The circle is like 4-5 inches in diameter. Then you use a drill or dremel to cut out the screw holes and circle. Sand it down to make it smoother. Place a fan grill so, no fingers get caught. Then place the fan itself. Well that's the basics of it.
