That looks like the same side panel that goes on my case. If it is the same case, there's room for a 120mm fan on the back where the 80mm is. Take a CD and lay it where you think it'll go. Same on the front intake. On the side panel where you're putting your logo, move it foreward on the case, and install an 80mm fan and duct to your CPU hsf. Use this:

Go straight from the sidepanel to your heatsink. That'll drop your temps pretty well. I used that in conjunction with a Tt Venus all copper hsf and got 28°C idle and 43°C load with fan on low. If I wanted to crank the fan all the way up, the full load temp would go down to 35°C. That's actually a pretty moddable case.

Are ou going to use a dremel, nibbler or jigsaw? I would personally use a jigsaw but it all comes down to whats available. Cutting plexiglass or lexan is pretty hard to do yourself (or by hand) without cracking or destroying the plexiglass. The best way to cut plexiglass is to cut it with a CNC or CAD mill. So you should just put a thin layer or plexiglass behind the side pannel instead of cutting it. Just a suggestion.

If you are going to use a jig saw to cut the plexi,use it on the slowest setting available,and move slowly. Jigsaws are very powerful,too much vibration will easily crack the plexi.
