Fishy is absolutly right with the Hole Saw being perfect for perfect fan holes.

As far as the dremel goes...just get the "reinforced" cutoff disks..there about $4-6 for 5 or 6 , its been a while since i bought any so i cant remember exactly

You mean "guides" I take it. Did you read the stickies. There really is not that much you need to know. Its pretty basic stuff. Learn as you go.

I presume that you will be cutting into your steel side panel?
Well the best alternative would probably be with the hole saw. Not to say that it is impossible to do it with any other tool. For mine I used a Rotozip. With the circular tool that it supplies the smallest hole you can make is probably around 8.5. With some adjustments you can make a 80 mm hole.

I figure you want to use the dremel since it you just bought it. if you decide to take the advise and use cut off wheels, buy them in the cutoff wheel set, which is worth it because it supplies you with I think 56 different wheels in 5 different varieties for just 10$.

i guarantee with the cutoff wheels, that it will be very hard to make a perfect clean circle, so good luck?

trdsw20 what bit do you use for cutting the steel case? none of them say they can do it... or is it just a matter of them wearing out faster but working fine...?
