it would honestly be cheaper to just buy a new case.

 

but basically any half decent angle grinder/disc cutter will be fine


Judge the product by it's own merits, not by the Company that created it.

An angle grinder or a hack saw if your looking for a more DIY concept. Or an alternative to an angle grinder (as @Vernw3mentioned), a dremel, which is essentially a mini angle grinder I'd call it which is manufacturered by an American company.

I used a handsaw, but this was just to cut out the top frame of the case where it is not visible for radiator fitting to fit.

It actually took too long so I just broke it off with a wire cutter. Since the metal handle that holds the blade is bigger than the blade so it kept coming in contact with the case while cutting.

No, no, no. I have a dremel. It is useless. Get an angle grinder. Whenever I want to cut something, anything I always go for the angle grinder, despite the fact they are right next to each other in a draw.

 

When we moved house over a year ago, all the dremel wheels and things got muddled, and no-one has bothered to tidy it up or even noticed for 6 months. The only thing the dremel gets used for is cutting PCB traces, and I reckon there is something out there that will do that better. For everything else it utterly sucks, it even struggles to cut tin cans, and most pc cases are ticker than cans.

 

Tools that claim to do more than one thing suck. Also, dremel wheels and attachments are really expensive compared to angle grinder wheels, and they are tiny.
