Burrs, there's special tools to deburr or used a grinder (dremel). Keep in mind that Dell is probably steel amd not the thick gauge aluminum CL. I prefer to use a step drill bit. Once I'm through, I gently apply the bit on the other side of the hole to deburr. Cheap grommets are available in many places btw.

Yeah the dell is steel. So does that mean the CL case will be easier to drill through? Also do you mean that when I am through the hole, I should stop, and drill it back out at a slow speed?

There's more material to go through so a dab of lube like wd40 helps. Make sure you get a pilot hole first and recommend a center punch to get you started.

Once I'm done making the hole I deburr the other side using the same step bit

Not extensions, these are straight to the psu. Yeah wait for the case. I had too make all sorts of changes once I got mine.

I have a pilot hole, center punch, and a step bit. Can I use this tool to get rid of raised edges on the hole I drilled?

Does Case-Labs sell the anti-vibrations pads and the M3 screws? I need a few more for all my harddrives

Also anyone who order a case, have an issue with USB 3.0 port? My one port is filled with glue.

Just gently run the step bit on the opposite side with the burrs and avoid chewing on the panel. Or you can go with the specialized tool.

Will the tool work even if there are a lot of burrs. Will it get everything off the edge of the hole?

Oh yeah: that's probably the go to deburring specific tool. Wear some thick gloves to avoids cuts and knicks.i typically run an 11/64 bit and then a 1/8 before going to the step bit. With the matte finish, a center punch helps a ton. If your case is "flat pack", I would remove amd work on the specific panel to avoid damage to other panels.
