So...first off, thank you google, as I never could have done it without you! Also a thank you to my brother Nekonoko for kicking down the I7 CPU to me and forcing me to spend money on the rest And to TH3L4UGH1NGM4N for his advice on the wifi card. I was going to wait until after doing some custom LED stuff with an Arduino micro controller, but that may be a while yet. so here it is, and this thing weighs a ton! This is my second build with the intension of being a hackintosh from the ground up and every part ordered with that idea in mind, first was in 2008 with a Q6600 and it was the most trouble free hack anyone could ever want, and still is, but no longer lives with me. I get visitation on nights and weekends only
4 hot swap sata bays are all full, as well as 2 additional bays below that, another HD in a 5.25 to 3.5 adapter in the upper most 5.25 bay, 2 remaining HD's are in a WD USB drive case and a Maxtor USB drive case that both had there original smaller drives removed and handed down to those in need. Mushkin & Kingston SSDs are tucked away behind the side panel in the wire management area, along with bluetooth and lots of wires that I some how also managed to get into the wire management area. All visible wiring that wasn't black has been sleeved black or in a few locations, painted using black vinyl dye. All PCI cards have had their slot covers painted black to match the case inside and out. Added a SPDIF in/out rear panel, but only have output from the mobo, so desoldered the input and replaced it with a 12V-DC input to power the Logisys RF remote relay, so I could use the remote to turn the computer on and not just off or reset. This also powers the 2 blue neon cold cathode tubes, allowing them to be switched on or off using the remote and can be turned on while the PC is off or unplugged (handy as a work light). I don't expect anyone to like it as much as I do, but hope you appreciate it and maybe get a few ideas for your own awesomeness!
The pics could be better, but had to resize them in order to upload more than 2 and they got a little fuzzy.
added screenshot running ML DP3 update 1, all benches ran one after another so results a bit lower than if each was ran with no other apps, but new ATI drivers are finally as good or better than Lion. Now running in beast mode!
