Can't ever go wrong with Jigsaw. although bill's tutorials on his channel about using dremel, he does a fairly good job using a dremel too.. But Jigsaw FTW..

But agreed, that looks very nice without the u-channel..

Upgrading the 840's stock 120mm exhaust fan to 140mm fan.

Cooler Master 840 ATCS rear 120mm exhaust


I'm holding up a 140mm Cooler Master fan over the stock 120mm grill. "Will it fit without anything obstructing it?"


The location of the 140mm fan resides along the crease on the back plate.


Making the initial cut with Rotary tool and reinforced cutting wheel before using Jigsaw


Using Jigsaw with 18 TPI metal cutting blade


Using rounded side hand file to clean up burrs along the edge of the cut.


140mm opening is cleaned up, next is drilling mounting holes for 140mm fan

vibration dampening fan grommets


Using a 1/4" size drill bit to make the mounting holes, this allows the fan grommets to fit.



Vibration dampening fan grommets installed.


I use #10 x 5/8" Black Oxide Phillips Pan Head screws for mounting fans



I really like the F-150 pick-up from District 9


For the exhaust fan grill, I cannibalized an early Monsta Rad grill prototype we made this year.
