    Look again, they are deep dents with scratches at the bottom :(

    What did you do? drop a running jigsaw on the case?

    I think he should cut out a big area ontop of the case then and replace with mesh/acrilic

    o_O what the bloody hell did you use to cut THAT with!? For good cuts in one go, I prefer to just drill a small pilot hole and let my good friend mr. nibbler do the rest ;)

    Cut the whole bit out, install mesh from the inside with proper hole cut :)

    Someone is quite persistant. What did you use to make that hole, a shotgun or something similar. Take a look here, someone has used a shotgun to mod a case http://www.2cooltek.com/case001_4.html

    I think that it's harder to do that than doing a clean hole. :lol:

    if you want to make some very clean and quick holes use eithe a bi-metal hole saw of, not sure what they call it, but it's a metal/wood hole cutter but i think it's more of a milling bit as all it has is a counterweighted steel rod with a very sharp edge, makes perfect holes, you just have to lubricate it with oil as your cutting it :)

    Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight... :eyebrow:

    Why didn't you stop once you realised it was starting to go wrong? :p
    Oh and that's why I cut blowholes from the inside out.
