Will probably post another tomorrow night then the updates will slow down due to me having to travel back to Kansas and school starting back up.

@reapersakiller - That's awesome! I'm glad to know something came of this thread other than showcasing my (hopefully decent) G5 hack.

@Irritation - In regards to the button, I plan to just order some wire, crimps, and connectors from Lutr0 Customs (does some absolutely gorgeous sleeving and the like) and make my own connectors. It will probably end up with me cutting the previous connector off, soldering on the new wires/connectors, and then potentially sleeving it to hide the solder joints and give it a more professional look. As per the back plate from Mountain Mods, It's very well made and makes it easy for someone to do one of these hacks. If i could find another G5 case (particularly for $15 or less considering I picked up this one and another for a friend for $30 biggrin.gif) I had come up with a way to do a mounting system without doing ANY cutting. It was to late for me to attempt it on this one.

Update biggrin.gif

Finally getting this posted as I promised, but hey better late than never!


Filling the holes from the standoffs that I broke off with epoxy. Not a necessity but I'm doing because I'm considering getting the case anodized.


Test fitting the bracket to see if i need to cut anything else.


This pictures shows the extra metal i left by the two fans. I think I will be cutting this off in the end so the fans will sit flush.

Sadly I did not take any pictures of the actual cutting process. Will be sanding the epoxy flush than painting with a metallic paint for the time being.

That''s mainly why im re-doing my build. I'm going to fill the holes with body filler, sand, prime,wetsand and paint(base and clearcoat) the insides of this new G5. I'm painting my HArley this weekend, so its now or never biggrin.gif

Yea I've got one ready I just have to type it up. Probably won't be till Saturday afternoon sometime. This week has been super hectic for me due to my AFROTC commitments. Trying to decide if it's worth the extra $$ to do a Xeon build or just go with a Haswell build and potentially scrap the idea of me doing an array setup.
