    What type of cheap power tool can I buy to do some case mod's? I am new at this and I think it would be fun.


    Thanks

    I truly think you would be hard pressed to find anything more functional than a Dremel tool.
    I know that other sources such as Black&Decker have similar tools, but I am not sure on the availability or interchangability of the bits for those.
    A basic kit for any of those should get you going nicely.
    Primarily, you need the cutting wheels and grinding attatchments for blowholes, windows etc.
    For drilling holes to mount fans and such a cheap power hand-drill should be all that is needed.

    Well, that and a bit of measuring, planning, and a steady hand:D

    Good luck with it - sounds like you plan to have some fun!

    Thank you so much.

    I have like 4 case fans and a hard drive fan that I want to modifiy into my case. I have a Midtower case.

    I am not looking at making this case fancy, but I want to overclock some more. So I need to cool this guy down some more. I need more speed out of my CPU.

    Do I need to use any type of molding around the fans? Can you recommend something?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Molding I guess would be a personal preference.
    If your looking for a good seal or something, a bit of silicone will handle that. If appearance is the concern, then that is best left to your tastes. What is going to work best for you ---- you are limited only by your imagination when it comes to modding.
    Keep your eyes open and your project in mind, you never know what you may find to fit the bill.

    I think some guards may be nice for the fans to keep foreign objects out of the case.

    If you want a real cheap modding tool, you can get a hand nibbler for about $25 AU...sure it's alittle slow, and can't cut plastic, but it offers excellant controll and for $25..well, what can i say. :D

    And as for fan molding, you can get it from http://www.pccasegear.com.au for about $3.50/metre :thumb: ...it adds a really pro look to you case.
