a jig saw, or a recipricating saw will work too... but a dremel and steady hand will work best. i think going to the neighbor and asking to borrow the dremel if you use your own tips for it is a great idea, you go to your local hardware store and get these tools like cutting wheels for a few $$
hehe it's already done my friend. I first drew out the outter stencil, and I knew could just cut in there cause then my fan would just plop right through. So, i measure the inner diameter of the fan, where the fan blades are and marked that. That is the part I cut out. This gave me the most stability on the case, and the most possible airflow. I attatched a high flow filter to it too, so it keeps some of that dusty out...I'm going to take a picture to show you guys...sure the cutting isn't perfect but its real good lol
