Default raidmax ninja case mod

I had a raidmax scorpio and took the front of it and modded my ninja case.

The scorio was crap so i took a sledge hammer to it.

I also modded an 80mm fan on the top of the ninja case but just got rid of that tonight cause the holes didn't match up right so now theres an 120mm fan on top of the ninja case. That case is just getting pimped out.

That is my other pc case but since i spent that much i am affraid to mod it.

The ninja case i spent about $80.00 on so i was affraid of modding that too but decided to.

My other pc case sux but it'll hopefully soon be this:

it doesn't look good right now. The edges are sharp and the hole is still 80mm so i will have to make it bigger and make the edges nicer before i post some pics.

Mine isn't though. I modded it to look nicer. I just need to figure out how to make my 80mm hole bigger without buying a new tool like a dremel.

They're called hole saws, fit on like a drill bit..

Home depot should have plenty of them.. here's a guide that uses them

lol dude if you try to use a hole saw on a hole thats already there (you said you wanted to make an 80mm bigger, right?), you better have some spare paint.
cos if the center guide bit doesnt have anything to bite into...which it wont, because its in the hole... the outside bit (the large one) is going to scratch the crap outta your case...and probably your fingers. if you had a SOLID piece you were working with, then a hole-saw would work great.
do you have a jigsaw? do any of your friends have a jigsaw? any of your friends dads have a jigsaw? do any of your dads friends have a jigsaw?
lol im just kiddin. but really a jigsaw with a GOOD metal-cutting blade (if your case is metal, if not get a plastic cutting blade) will be your best bet.
then you can get some edging for metal and !viola! professional hole.
