Has any one tried cutting a custom design for a blowhole. Just wondering because that is what I am about to try. I just wanted to ask to see if there was any advise out there.

BTW, I am going to cut a biohazard symbol in the front face plate. Just not enough air getting to the fan behind it. =)

Before you start cutting, I would suggest calling around to any area machine shops to find out if they have any type of laser/plasma cutters that would make a better edge than a saber saw would. If it were just a plain ole round hole, I wouldnt be to worried... That dosent sound like the case here... Send us pictures of that!

It's possible, but it would probally be a better idea to make a round blowhole, then use a laser-cut fan grill (available at many mod-shops.)

agree with nocturne - get the laser cut grill and a filter. you can get them at any online OC store, millisec.com being my favorite.

but it would look better if the case was the fan cover, and so what if he messes up, then he can just make it round and put the laser cut grill on it, say he doesn't know what people are talking about when they ask why he didn't do the case grill thing.
