    My First Hackintosh & Cube!

    Hello All, Sorry for the lack of posting, I'm saving up some funds to finish off the cube. What remains is both the physical power/reset button on the bottom and the touch sensor button on the top. For the power/reset button I'm looking for something like this...

    My First Hackintosh & Cube!

    Thanks Kiwi! That got me thinking. I ended up using existing holes in the handle assembly, 3 from the original motherboard, and one that had priorly been apart of the handle assembly itself. The bolts aren't exactly straight, but they get the job done. I threaded them in and added J-B weld...

    My First Hackintosh & Cube!

    I had not seen that page, thanks for the heads up! I think I will go with AR-04. I read into its specs and it seems that it should handle pretty well, especially with an exhaust fan on top. I'm going to omit the bottom fan for now and see how things go, I want to make sure the DVD drive will...

    My First Hackintosh & Cube!

    Hey All! I recently acquired a pretty clean cube on ebay and have been putting together a parts list. I've decided to stick to what appears the easiest (relative to cube standards anyway) and most compatible build I can find. The parts list so far is: - Intel DQ77KB - Intel i3-3225 - 8GB RAM -...
