They come in all sizes, the one I used drilled a hole approximately the size of a doorknob. Just make sure you drill a pilot hole first, and be patient, you want cut the plastic, not melt it.
****... a pilot hole! no wonder I couldn't get mine to work!

you sir are a genius! (or I'm just an idiot...)

I'm definitely not a genius. You choose. Here's some pics.

This is the Sonata case with front fan duct. I'm thinking of changing the wire mesh to black.



And here's the hole saw I used. Note that the drill bit in the center lines up with the pilot hole you drill first. Just use a regular drill bit and create a pilot hole at the exact center of the larger hole.
