Have you tried running games or CAD programs on this build? How do they perform?
Hey BitDoctor, Im from Australia too and I thought you may be interested that I have found an Aussie site that supplies the FIC chassis.
Hi tpho2500, the answer to your question is no. The highest workloads this system has seen would be light graphics work with Photoshop, compiling code with Xcode and MPLABX (PIC), routing boards with Eagle, running WinXP in VirtualBox... all of which are still light work for the i7-3770 processor.Have you tried running games or CAD programs on this build?

Hi probieJ, HDMI (audio and video) is working on the MiniMacPro. However, I don't use it very often and most recently I noticed some unusual behaviour. Exhibiting at a trade show last week, we connected the DVI port to a Samsung SyncMaster as the primary monitor and one of the HDMI ports to a TEAC TV as a secondary screen for displaying PowerPoint slides. With both screens connected, the system would not boot, cycling in some boot loop. After disconnecting the HDMI TEAC TV, the system booted normally. The HDMI TEAC TV could be connected to the running system and worked fine. I have yet to investigate this further.Nice build Bitdoctor! I just build one from your idea on the case using the i5. Does your HDMI port work? I am trying to connect it to my big screen and I am just getting the white Apple screen after running MultiBeast with your option settings.
Hi chezzy1013, thanks for the link. It's nice to see these cases finally appearing down under.
Hi alexg2222, thanks for posting your findings. I have yet to find the time to run this upgrade. The MiniMacPro is just using the default DSDT file downloaded from this site.hi ! i haven't work hdmi audio pls give me your ioreg & dsdt (h77n-wifi+ivi 3770+8gb ,ml10.8.3 + 10.8.4 clover, chimera, chameleon hda892 from mulibeast 5.3.1) geekbench 14037 vtd work in clover whith dmardrop=yes
