Only need to make and connect front audio and USB then i'm done

well done very beautifully done... very nice cable management but you have to try without cutting and moding the case ............. also r u able to close the side panel?

 

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 this is an insane mod! love the cables! but where did u get the white cables that go to the front panel I/O? i cant find them on amazon, except on black...

 

where did u order yours from?

 

thanks!

 

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.
