Simple, go to the hardware store and buy a 4.5 inch hole saw, they cost around $35 to $40, then gut an old fan and screw it on the outside of the case to use as a saw guide and start cutting. You can find the molding at most computer mod stores, I got mine from HERE.
When using the hole saw on that mesh area, was it a pain? Did the teeth keep wanting to grab the holes in that panel? I may grab up a 4.5" hole saw and some cutting discs for my dremel sometime soon, and cut out the grills/mesh that block the top and front fans.

Also...how can I remove the I/O panel, and the whole top of the case? I removed two screws on the front/top of the case and pulled up on the top of the case and it only came up so far. I removed the two big screws in the top near the back and that didn't help. I'm afraid to pull too hard and break something. I want that I/O panel off in order to fix or replace the audio jacks and stealth switch, since having those would be very convenient and the ones that came with the case are shot.

Just let the saw do the work, meaning don't push down on the drill, it cuts pretty clean.

The top just pops off after the 2 front screws and the 2 rears, make sure the top fan and screws are out though.

That would explain why the top wouldn't come off...top fan was still in, haha. Thanks for all the info!

Grrr, I did a bit of 'PSU Modding', I cut another whole on the non visible side of the psu and routed all the cables so they run up behind...only to find the 24 pin cable doesn't reach, so I have to get an extension cable now.

I printed off a few more stickers too, just have to decide where I'm going to stick them now.

I'll post some pics later on, have to head off now

New here, just got mine a week ago and couldn't be happier with it. Battled a bit over the Scout or the Thermaltake V9. Need to add some more fans beyond the stock set up.

swanfy i hear alot of people use these fans http://www.antonline.com/p_R4-L2R-20CR-GP-GP_632792.htm they are also very cheap from that website ($5.40).

If your willing/wanting to change colors of your scout http://www.svc.com/y720dcd-25t1-gp.html those are great and they come with two fan controllers.

If you upload a few shots of your case I will put you on the roster.

I have a green window!! I was thinking that A.C. Ryan AcrylPanels was clear but I guess UV Green is meant to look somewhat cloudy, but it will work for now.

Sweet, that looks really good, I love it.

How does the window look under UV light? some of the UV Reactive acrylic sheets I've seen have a "live edge" , which looks cool under UV.
