    The Scarcity of Corsair Carbide Cases

    I've noticed that in the buyer's guide a lot of the recommended cases for ATX motherboard builds are Corsair Carbide cases. However, most of those cases have been discontinued and are increasingly harder to find. What should a builder do to find a case that will fit an ATX motherboard for their...

    Case question

    Does anyone have experience building with the Apevia X-Infinity mid tower case? I’m guessing it’s fine for building a Custo Mac Pro, but I don’t wanna take any chances. This is my first build. Link below. Thanks. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NA0IX9F/?tag=tonymacx86com-20

    Advise on case for large watercooler

    The most difficult part in building a hacintosh for me is choosing a good case. Motherboards and cpu's have there specs and are rather easy to choose from. A good casing must be silent, provide enough room for the graphic cards, fans and cooling systems. My next project will have one of these...

    Reducing interference when audio recording

    Hello, I was just wondering how much of an impact a case has on audio interference. I have a really cheap case, super thin metal, and I'm getting a fair amount of interference when recording guitar, etc. I was wondering if a new case would be likely to help with this? I have a Power Mac G5 in...

    Hackintosh Build inside an existing Apple Macbook Pro?

    I have an old Apple 2009 Macbook Pro. I like this machine a lot, and have upgraded the hard drive and ram, replaced the battery, and switched out the dvd drive for another hard drive. The only thing that can't be upgraded is the CPU, so it's still rockin' the Intel Core 2 Duo processor. Thing is...

    Bracket for Two Slot-Loading Optical Drives

    I've noticed that a lot of neat cases, particularly those from Bitfenix, only have one 5.25" drive bay. If I used one of those cases, I'd want to be able to have two optical drives, but that would be impossible without some sort of bracket to hold two optical drives. Does anyone know of a...
