Pics : Image Gallery - Thumbnailed for easier viewing.

I went out and bought a 114mm hole saw, some sandpaper and screws..

Bare case..i poped the top panel off by drilling out the pop-rivits.


Planning it out..


Clamped down panel to peice of hardwood, so the holesaw has something to grip.


First test after cutting..flush fit

Close up..


I went out and bought a Black and Decker Dremil clone..and a new drill...

I cut a plate to go behind the harddrive bay..so the wires behind it are hidden..


Hehe..


Also mounted the relay switch for my pump next to the PSU..

looks good.....my modding skills are stunted by my lack of patience

The flush fit right up on the fan grills is pretty nice
