here are some pix of my fully-functional dual-booting hackintosh. It is nearly complete, however i will call it done after a few things get installed.

What I want next is :
a custom sleaved powersupply with 80mm fan and minimal cabling,
2 x dual 2.5inch hot-swap HDD Bays (for two SSD boot drives and two storage laptop drives) to replace the velociraptor
A new Graphics card to replace the 5770
Cable anchors for a cleaner inside( they will allow me to cable tie all the cables into tight bundles so the air cooling is working to its maximum)

exterior fans are in and we are just waiting for a custom sleaved powersupply.
cpu temp is 6 or 7 degrees higher with case closed than with the mobo out on display.

just completed a fresh dual boot of win7 and snow leopard
and i have to say this board is just fine.

on another topic, the blower fan arrived and puts out some heavy exhaust.
i do recomend air cooling with a fan configuration similar to this.

There is also one major shift in this project. I am going Air-cooled.

the concept of this case is quite fine. It is just that it doesn't have fan holes, and that is why i went about watercooling it.
but i gave it another evaluation and came to the conculsion that it could be aircooled also.
the watercooling bits will find other homes in a future computer, but i am going about adapting the case for air cooling.

I have cut fan holes in the bottom of the case.

and installed a low-profile cpu cooler.

the twin 80mm fans will suck air in and i will install a 120mm blower (centrifugal) fan to push air out of the rear air vents
HDD's will be repositioned to stack vertically behind the power switch and speaker (above the new intake fans for cooling)

and finally i have found a supplier of powersupplies that custom wire their supplies to a 500watt PSU with 80mm fan.
it took a little bit of searching but i have them suppling me with a quote that will be done in a week.
