What is good place to buy metal cutting tools? Canadian Tire and Home Depot has quite poor selection.

I need to punch 120mm hole for the third fan at the bottom of the case.

I used my trusty ol Dremel from Canadian Tire. But what I would recommend if you can find one is a 120mm hole saw that attach's to a drill if you can find one. They work much better.

Here some examples-->TCT Hole Saws

Yes, just got one 102mm. Perfect for fan drilling!

Just spend $171 at Canadian Tire on dremels and riverts. But I set for life now...

I removed drives cage and make a hole for third fan. It will be workable solution if I gave up SLI as second card basically lie down on radiator. I'll update pictures tomorrow.
