I have a UV Logysis Arcylic case, looking to add a fan to the top of the case. I was wondering what precautions should i have to cutting a hole in my case. What size fan should i use? Thanks!

I would make sure the case is completely empty before doing any cutting. You don't want any of the debris getting into your components. I have seen case moding work done on what used to be called "tech tv" on cable. They used a Dremel tool. You can get one at Home Depot, Lowes, even Walmart. Use what ever size fan you want!

Yeah dremels are good for it, what you want to do is get something like a 120mm fan and get the size of hole you want or design you want to cut lightly drawn out on the case, along with the holes for screwing it on.

Then you want to get a very slow drill with the right drill bit on and drill the screw holes, i would do this and instead of mounting it with screws use gel pull throughs, they really keep the noise down. Antec make them, but other companies make gel absorbers that go between srew head and fan to keep the noise down as well.

Then you drill a hole so you can get the saw blade in and cut really slowly, there is a few good resources on the net that can give you better info than me on it, i havent really done much in the case modding line myself never had the need or the inclination. You should be able to find some videos or illustrated articles though there are tons and tons of forums just for case modding alone.
