...and this build is for my 74 year old father...

Nice excuse to justify yet another hack! ;) I'm a bit afraid, you will have no more time to build more hacks, because your support hotline is overloaded... :headbang:

Seriously: nice one-day build. :thumbup:

Please don't forget: we want to see your 2nd Cube Hack.

Hi i just bought a G5 case yesterday and i am looking to make a mod similar to yours. Would you mind telling me where i can get those standoffs, I am looking to go with this solution because the trays are quite expensive to get to denmark

The standoffs come with the G5 case, holding the apple motherboard in place. The need to be broken off with a pair of pliers, and glued into new positions as per the guide.

I used the fast setting type of JB Weld. It seems to be just as strong as the slow setting JB Weld.
