A nibbler doesn't bend the chassis too much? I cut out the fan grill in my 
current box to increase airflow, but I just used cutting pliers. It was a 
horrible mess.

I like the thought of having to get a dremel, though. The Octane has a 
front panel that slides away to reveal floppy, tape, and power switch. It 
looks like the panel is big enough to reveal a 5.25" drive. I'd also love 
to stick USB and FireWire ports in that panel. In the best of all possible 
worlds, I'd also like a VGA port there, too. Most of the time this system 
will be headless, but when I'm futzing with it then I could just slide the 
panel door away and plug in a monitor.
