Me too, although most of it is the C-channel, there was alot of time with the file...

Therefore, before buying the case, I'd like to know what kind of power tools I would need too.
PS: Your build looks great!
Thanks for the kind words! I used a jigsaw, hand file, and a drill to punch the holes to start the saw. Beyond that, a T-square and combination square, screw drivers, I used a 1" hole saw for the tube that goes through behind the hotswap bay, but otherwise all the holes were done with the jigsaw. My dremel is about 20 yrs old, and I'm lacking a number of bits for it, so I went with the jigsaw whenever possible, though I know most of the new dremel bits do quite well with this sort of work. Feel free to post here or PM with any of the mod questions you may have, I'd be happy to help get you going on your mod! If I were to get into casemodding more frequently I'd consider investing in a metal-cutting 4.25" hole saw to punch 120mm holes, but at $40 it was steep for only a few holes. I also used some metal shears to snip out the hex grating up top.
