Crazy case! Really nice job on it!

Are you booting off the RAID? Or a better question; Can you boot off the RAID?

With a see-thru case like this, I would spray paint it white. Inside the case, not outside. This will give it a total Apple look. And I would see about arranging those dangling cables inside. Just a few thoughts.

Absolutely stunning!! Does RAID 0 work with your mobo (which?), bootable? Congrats anyway, one of the best cases and settings I´ve ever seen!

I use this method sammy

1 Install OS X 10.4.3
2 go to Disk Uttil and set my HDD to use RAID0
3 Install 10.4.5
4 you will get RAID0 On This mobo running OSX 10.4.5

Has anybody else got RAID working on internal drives?

Is screwing it together really 'hand made' ?

It looks like one of the Beantech clear cases that were all the rage a few years ago. My friend had one and he said it was really annoying to work on or change out hardware.

I like the idea of painting the inside, that would probably be really cool.

Hello,

i got a question if you don´t care. I also have the asus p5ld2-vm with a intel pentium d930. I am thinking of getting 2 identical sata drives to give raid 0 a shot. I would like to boot from them directly - at this moment i am using 10.4.6 without any troubles, despite the fact that my system doesnt come back from sleep mode.

You mentioned that you have used raid on your old board but haven´t tried on the new asus. Please tell me if it works if you have already tried because i would only get the sata drives if it works.

Thanks in advance
