My 'Hackintosh' Mac Pro case build. - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Thread Starter 
Got the Rad nicely mounted.
Waiting on a new 670 waterblock ( they are around $200nz here) since my cheap universal one has slightly too small barbs which leak and I wasn't getting good contact on the gpu with it.
I need to find a way to hide the power supply some how.
I was thinking of cutting the bottom of the case out for the PSU to sit in.
What do I need to cut aluminium nicely?

I also want to fit a small fan controller at the very top of the case or another 360mm rad (probably pointless)

The SP 120s are very quiet and it is nice. It is a shame that the 670s fan sounds like a diesel tractor when it spins up.
Also want to replace the fan in the back with some quiet ones.

AND I need to get front panel audio and USB working (apple proprietary cable)

Cool, I need suggestions

EDIT: Yep thats tissue paper (potential leaks)

Whats up man,Sorry to bump an older thread,But i am considering doing what you did.Basically using the Mac Pro case for my next build.I really like the case,It's well built using quality aluminum.
But is it worth the hassle? I also notice it looks like your motherboard is mounted upside down.It that a must in order to use this case? Or is the case upside down?

If you can tell me the main hurdles you had to overcome i would appreciate it.It mainly sounds like getting the power button to work with a PC style motherboard.As well as the frontal USB and 3.5 headphone jack etc.

If i was to do this.I would take a lot of time modding the case.I would just use my current computer during the mod, and do a Build thread with how i modded the case.I intend to do a clear acrylic window in the side panel,Have it powder coated Black,Modify it to use an ATX PSU, etc.Your input would be appreciated.
