Any budding PC case modding enthusiasts out there?

I have a Nexus Edge case and the front door really hampers the air flow for my HDDs, I want to make a number of cuts to the front aluminium door (3mm thick), but I would like a professional cut (or as near) as possible.

Could I cut it with some Dremel tools? or is there local metal cutting service that can do the job for me cheap (and neatly).

Thanks for any advice. Rep will be added fro any decent advice.

I made quite a few mods to my old Lian Li PC 60+.
Extra fan hole in rear, dual 120mm hole in front top and a single 120mm hole in the bottom both for water cooling radiators.

If you get a half decent dremel and take your time with the cut it will go fine and look good :)

I am a complete novice when it comes to using power tools but I find if I take my time I can put my hand to most things!

Thanks for that. What dremel and bits could you recommend that I should get please? Basically, I want to cut either 2 circular holes or 1 large rectabgular hole to fit in 2 x 120mm fans.

I used a fake dremel to do mine. I think it was a B&Q rotary tool with adjustable speed. It came with a fair few bits to stick on the end (very technical term). Most of the cutting I did was with the standard cutting disks. Would recommend some thick goggles as the disks have a tendancy to shatter if you catch them wrong cutting a circle!

Thanks again for your reply.

I've found a company which will do the mod for you (http://www.chilledpc.co.uk/shop/index.php?cPath=36&osCsid=606ad053243285c5a66611db034315d8), so I'm trying to work out the cost if it be better to have it done professionally, or buy a set of tools and cut it myself and possibly make a mess of it.

Cheers :thumbsup:
