As long as you are happy with the result of using the vents as the reference I cant see why not.
Personally I would use a drawing software, draw it exactly how I want it, print it on the paper then glue the paper on the case. Far more flexible and accurate doing it that way.
You can also use a hole saw/drill on the 4 rounded corners to get them perfectly round then just join the straight cuts to the 4 holes. Tons of way of doing this, which ever tools you have or feel comportable with.
If I have access to a CNC machine I would have use that instead LOL.

I did mine how it was done in that pic, lines of masking tape, then draw on by hand. mesure up a complete square hole, then using a pair of compasses or round lids mark up the corners. Most important thing is; when you cut it, leave atleast 5mm, dont cut to the shape, even if it takes you 2 days to sand it down it's worth it.

Thanks for the replies. i think i might just mask it up and mark it all out. I'll be using a jigsaw with a fine tooth blade unless i can get my hands on a dremel. i used that exact jigsaw to do my HDD window. did not melt the plastic what so ever. are the plastics the same? (HDD and top of 360 case) i use a coin to mark out my corners
