Modding my Thermaltake Armor

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Alright, so over Spring Break I plan on doing a bit of modding on my Thermaltake Armor, and among other things I plan to fix some of the cable management issues but being a noob at this I need a bit of advice....
So, I want to cut through the metal plate next to where the motherboard will be and put rubber grommets in like the ones you find in Corsair cases, so if anyone could tell me where I might be able to get something like that, I would appreciate it.

So I found a 20 mm hole saw that can cut through metal, but please tell me if you think I should get one bigger or smaller... Going to be routing MB Main, SATA, and SATA Power through them, not sure if the MB connector will fit.

Note - I currently reside in the UK so if you could find this stuff on UK sites that would be great, or even better if you could tell me where I might be able to get them in town...

You might want to look at something bigger or find a dremel set and cut your own holes using stencils. Hole saws are good for routing individual wires and cutting fan holes where I find a dremel set better to route bunches of wires. The easiest thing to do is to use painters tape where you plan to cut grab a stencil of your choosing trace the area you are going to cut out and then carefully cut it out. Make sure to secure the case when you are modding it and to remove all components do you don't damage anything or get loose metal on your mobo. There are many guides here on how to mod your case too if you are having trouble.
