Can you advise what you cut on the hard drive caddy to make it fit the 3rd drive?
I did have a look at your pictures but I am not sure what you did
There's a picture of the caddy mod here that shows the cut-out. I'm not sure how to make it more clear. Do you have the drive caddy for the G4/G5 mini so you can compare your original to my photo?

Just got this machine a few days ago, with i5 8500T, 8GB Ram and 256 Hynix M2 SSD for USD 300... I love this machine, best 300 bucks spent for a long time... Everything works... @deeveedee congrats for the OC EFI, very nice work!
