Hi guy,

Want to intro my case to the hackintosh world. i found out that mostly people will major modify the back and didnt reserve the original off the case . So i come out with the idea and come out with this.

Still incomplete though but done the back design and current focus on the front design since i planning to change the front i/o using the usb 3.0 along with audio jack as well.

Updated:

I have modded the front i/o panel ( 2 port of usb3.0).

The back panel still look abit ugly though.. finding a way to cover it .

My Spec:

Gigabyte Ga Z97 Sli
ZOTAC GTX 970 Amp Omega.
Flowerpower hw 600
samsung 840 evo 120gb.
seagate barracuda 2tb
8gb g.skill value ram.

Hi Crimv, good stuff you have there. Can you briefly tell us what hardware is going into the case?

For hard drive cage check the Laser Hive. And there is always ones like those by Icy Dock.

Also it is not that hard to set up a bank of 2.5" devices.

Good modding,
Neil
