Hole saw. Thing is, the case is pretty bad. I have one at work and the metal is thin and flimsy.

can be modded with limitations. You can actually make the hole for fans at top and from with Hole saw or even with a grinder (if your good at it)

a similar guide for you is here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wGlWZ24QsE

more over you can paint it to other color with vinyl job and install a side windows as well or perhaps turbine fans. It all depends how you work it out with your creativity
