First G5 case mod... from scratch.

13 September 2013 - 10:45 PM

Hello there !


First of all, in the past I saw the task of modding a G5 case (a case that I really love since it has been unveiled) being really too hard or not worth the time, but looking at your projects really fired me up.


So, before starting to unmount its insides, I have a few questions for you.


-I am aiming at a i5 3570K "naturally", but I have concerns about the processor's cooler... I saw on certain mods (with the Mountain Mod MB stand) that the radiator was really close to the width of the case, maybe preventing it from closing... should I pass on certain CPU cooler because of their lenght or not ?

(I was thinking about the Cooler Master 212 evo)


-Does the PSU's (modular, of course) measurements have a real impact too ? (I will mount it at the top rear, it seems easier)

This is the first computer I build up, so I don't really know if these have a standard size...

(there, aiming for a Antec HCG 520 or 620W)


-And finally, is the dremel the best tool for cutting the rear panel ?


It's pretty basic stuff, and I apologize for that, but these are things I need to know before making the leap. :)


And if there is more I should really know about this mod before I begin, don't hesitate to tell me !


Thanks for your time.
