    Hello guys:

    I am eager to mod my case so it has a window in it. It will be my first mod, so I'm a little reluctant to do it. I have a antec performance II series case, heres the link to it:
    http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...129-120&depa=1

    I was wondering how hard it would be to cut a hole in the side of this sucker. It's made out of thick 1mm steel, and the only tool I have is a kind of old dremel. Should I do it w/ just a dremel, or not? Also, I d o not know which bit # is the reinforced cutting wheel. Thanks for the help.

    just use the dremel. unless you can get your hands on a jigsaw, that might be better.
    for using the dremel remember to use it at a high speed

    I have a mototool dremel, so no varying speeds.

    I've got another question: How could I get the plexiglass mounted around the handle? Can I cut plexiglass w/ a dremel?

    plexiglass can be cut using a dremel but its best to use a low speed. slight problem there if you cant change the speed.

    Just make it looks nice inside if your going to have that window to show it off. Buy some cable sleeves to clean up all the wires http://3dcool.com/?module=product&sku=VTSLEEVINGKIT###.

    The window looks real nice btw

    the wires may want to be tidied up. itll make it look much nicer.
