Hi, Thanks
Having an full-ATX card in a mac pro case, you need to cut there is no room otherwise. right now there is about 40-60mm room for the motherboard card, top to bottom. Plus making the back with out cuts is alot of work compared to cutting it out and fitting a motherboard tray
Yes the side door closes like a real mac

Hi,

Well the cables I original ordered where out of stock so, ended up ordering some white sleeving for my front cables and made them my self.

Yeah, on medium speed it is, but planning to change them when I get the time, my cpu is OC to 3.6ghz so need them to run at medium speed :( on low it gets to hot
