Firstly thanks to all the amazing people on this forum for inspiration and helping me get my Hackintosh up and running.
This is my first case mod ever…
Here is my system specs:
CPU-Intel i5 3330
RAM-Corsair 2X4Gb 1600 MHz
GPU_XFX 5670 1Gb with Accelero S1 passive cooler
SSD-Mushkin 60 Gb
LG DVD/CD RW
Apple Bluetooth module
Apple Wi-Fi module
Antec cooler H2O 620
2X 120 mm Fan 500 RPM
1X 80 mm Fan 1000 RPM
OS-OS X ML 10.8.3
What I wanted to do with this project is minimalistic and clean mod with "perfect" cable management
The hardest part of the job was making the back of the enclosure in which I used a 1.5 mm thick aluminum sheet with inner rear plate of my old ATX case. All aluminum work is home-made.
Power supply is put together in the original PSU case with the Hard and SSD drive, and that combination is cooled with the original G5 60 mm fans.This may seem strange combination putting HDD and PSU in one case, and I was a little bit skeptic, but for now everything is working great and temperatures not exceed 28 Celsius
Mount for front fans is made of aluminum profile.
Case interior is lined with black self adhesive foil.
The end result is here, the configuration is very fast and quiet, and I am very satisfied with my first G5 case mod
Next thing what I want to do is replace power supply with better one (maybe 500-600W) and buy a new graphic card (AMD 7xxx)
Thanks for watching
