Look at his Fatal build. It was a display for his Bacardi alcohol bottle reservoir if I'm not mistaken.

I have the Rosewill ARMOR Gaming ATX Mid Tower which is mesh, so, would cutting be much easier because of this? i have never attempted cutting a case, but, i will be doing so this weekend.smile.gif

Depending on what your cutting with, when cutting mesh if its wide hole mesh just clip out the area needed with a pair of wire snips. If its small holed mesh then you should start the cut with a dremel or by drilling a big hole then use that as a pilot hole to cut with a Jig saw or router. If your cut ends up ruff just sand to make it even and form then do a quick coat of pain if you want. thumb.gif I did this on my "Scorch" Build just click one of the links below. biggrin.gif
