Is cardboard a good material for building a Hackintosh?.
No, probably not!, it's flammable, it's not as strong as Aluminum or any other metal tbh.
Craig, this is a brilliant example of out-of-the-box and back-in-the-box thinking.
I did something similar 25 years ago using Coroplast to make a test rig and some hard drive brackets.
Yes, a little duct tape (or some CA glue used sparingly) would stabilize the structure, but . . . you'd lose that glorious Here Today, Gone Tomorrow design aesthetic. Maybe a ground strap wouldn't violate the spirit too much.
In any case, great work!
As a Fire Fighter (retired) I couldn’t possibly recommend this build
You sound like just the person this project was made for!.if I were using cardboard, I'd probably want to brush on a fibreglass resin on it to reinforce it - it's a trick used by some crafters and cosplay prop people.
Then again, I wouldn't mind seeing a computer built inside a bread box!
