Default Put a top Exhaust fan (pics)

so i bought 4 fans when i added the mesh to the side of my computer, but i put 2 of those on the radiator and i wanted to put the other 2 on the side of the case, but the water hoses was blocking it so i could only put one fan on the side... so i had 1 fan left... i was looking around on the case where it could go and i found a spot that it would fit perfectly, in front of the power supply just behind the optic drive. so here it is! took me about 45 minutes..

i took the top of my case off to make it easier to cut the hole:



then i measured and marked where to drill the holes



then i cut the holes, didnt get a picture of that, tho. but here it is installed.




I think now my case is done


Here it is before when i got my computer:



and here it is now



now i just need one of these and itll be done

What did you use to cut the hole? Just a hole saw?

here it is completely finished, i didnt want to spent $8 or so to buy and ship a grill for the hole, so i made one out of the same mesh i used for the side of the case... i kinda used my thumb to squeeze, the mesh around the edges of the hole, so it sticks out kinda, instead of just being flush i think it looks more professional and gives it a finishing touch... anyway here it is...
