Well I was going to build a card reader into a 3.5" bay with a fan controller, but my door doesn't allow for a potentiometer to fit in nicely so the card reader that I've already bought is going somewhere a little easier to access...

At the top of the case is a hollow lip just abouve the door, I should be able to cut out a couple of slots and no more nails the card reader in place fairly easilly. It should look pretty good I hope!

Only worry at present is choosing a tool. I'd dremmel except it melts the plastic and I'd probably slip with a stanley knife!

You could try to cool down via a liquid coolant via a wet sponge...

Possibly try to make a very small slit with a heated(see *) Xacto Knife then use a fine grit 'file' to shave away plastic as needed. This allows more control than a power tool or sharp object.

*Don't over heat the knife as it makes plastic very brittle, do it in steps and always have a way to cool down quickly if needed.
