More updates!!

Test fitted an old power supply that I took apart up top and it looks like it'll fit without needing to make a new tray! Hopefully this works the same when I put the actual power supply up there that I'll be using.

314541_2106615740895_1110570102_31796503_1726497564_n.jpg

So because of this I need to change the layout of the bottom tray. I'm going to make it 30mm above the bottom of the case. Once it clears the mobo it's going to have a right angle and go up to the height of the factory one. (65-70mm don't remember right now).

Stopped by Micro Center and bought some $3 dollar fans for the hard drives. 2 x 60mm fans should be good enough. The hard drives will go under the open spot on the bottom of the case.

I tried putting the fans far up on the case bolts but they sit too tall :/

308828_2106616380911_1110570102_31796505_858839077_n.jpg

And last but not least for today, brought the other case to work with me today. It's going to the Apple store later to hopefully get an OS installed on it smile.gif

put together a sheet of aluminum cut and bent to fit the bottom of the case the way I want. On the low end its 30mm off of the floor and on the high end it's about 65mm up. It's not the finished product but I'll use it to figure out where to put screws and mounting points.

386872_2112567169677_1110570102_31800588_655359141_n.jpg

And look at that, New power supply showed up at work today!!

379145_2112567409683_1110570102_31800589_1214725062_n.jpg

I need some input from people. I don't know what to use as a riser to keep the aluminum sheet in place. I want to mount it from the bottom of the case and basically have long studs or whatever coming up and having a hole in the top to screw into. Any ideas of what to use or where I can get it?

Wait, so you put your own components in there then took it to the apple store and they installed OSX for you? Lol sweet. Btw, Nice WRX STi. My friend almost bought a 2002 WRX, not the STi edition though.

I wish it was that easy with the Apple store lol, that's actually the second G5 I have haha. I used the power supply from the stripped machine to get it running and they put an OS on it after I put a HDD in.

I love my WRX. It's an 05, I've done a lot of work to it over the past few years. I swapped front ends to the older style because I like it a bit more. I'm actually planning on painting it (again) this coming springs to yellow biggrin.gif

have you thought about doing WC in that g5 case? Also, what about doing a EL strip on the bottom to make a glow out the bottom?

And im jelly of your STi. I love my 05 SRT-4 but wish it had AWD to catch the STi. lol
