Fans added

To a mid tower case... just added two 92mm fans, 1 intake(bottom front) and 1 exhaust(rear top below psu). Originally fitted for three 80mm fans(1 front/2rear), but i wanted add to the original 92mm exhaust fan on top, side panel has one 92mm as well, but had to removed it due to the hsf(coolermaster 212+) being too tall.

Parts used...
1. 1/2" milwaulkee brushless hammer drill(drill operation with #12 torgue setting)
2. 3 1/2" milwaulkee bi metal hole saw and quick release arbor with drill bit
3. 2" wide painters tape
4. black marker for marking mounting screw hole for the fan guard
5. 1/16'' drill bit for pilot hole and 3/16"" drill bit for screw hole pass through for fan guard
6. precision and patience

looking good!
I had to buy a hole cutter I bought the cheapest one I could buy and mashed up the teeth due to the speed I used it generates so much swaf and heat it took awhile to clean the case but I used masking tape to trap most it.

Thanks, it didnt take long, but it was a great ride to the finish line!

Buying cheap isnt bad if you dont expect to use it more than once or twice, i thought about doing the same, but i didnt because i thought about possible future projects.

As for getting the metal shavings removed, i first use a small screw driver with a strong magnetic tip to get into alot of the small crevices and then use a hand held blower by the name of "metro datavac", cleans dust out from computers extremely well.

Good vacuum trick. I used a piece of 3/8 od tubing and a spare attachment for our home vac to make a flexible narrow and soft extension for cleaning the pc and other delicate.

A hole you can cover with your thumb in the tubing or attachment allows for some control over vacuum suction

Thanks again... but dont let the name "vac" fool you, this is a blower, not a vacuum.
