    Hey good luck with your M8... I had a good experience with mine but have sold it as I needed the cash more then another system (current count is about 12 systems in my office/lab).

    You should be able to bring up your Ethernet without much trouble, use MultiBeast to install AppleIntelE_1000E and then a high numbered version of VoodooHDA for the sound.

    I see you are running with an i7-4790K! Are you able to keep it cool?

    Good modding,

    Check out this guide for the boot0 error: http://www.tonymacx86.com/general-help/65706-boot0-error-official-guide.html

    eBios error is usually from the card reader. The solution is to turn off the card reader in the BIOS or add a formatted card to the reader.

    I am sorry for the late reply as I missed seeing your question.

    Anyway I have sold my modded M8 so this is from memory. I looked at changing the fan direction but I think I ended up up using them as installed. I did remove the restrictive grill at the bottom and paid much attention to the cable dress so as to not impede the air flow in the case. In my set up I ran my thermal stress tests with and without the side covers, and while running "warm" under full load, the system was stable so I left it and moved on.

    I have been tempted to purchase another M8 when and if I find them for a "good" price as there is a lot of good tech for very little money (the motherboard, PSU, PCIe Extender card, and slot loading optical drive).

    Good modding,
    neil

    Romain thank you for your interest. I did not know where Reunion Island was located so I had to look it up on the internet. I am very impressed that you are working on hacks there.

    I was thinking about a mod to help in very hot locations. You may want to look at running the system with the right side panel off. Also you could mod the right side panel and install a fan to help exhaust the hot air.

    Good modding,
    neil
