really clean and excellent work many compliments!
Let me ask you a question also what you call the stuff "for the epoxy operation. Using the JB Weld epoxy for this" ....
what is the real name of the substance that you use?
is it a kind of glue? you can write the brand and model?
thank you very much!
Neilhart, You have outdone yourself this time, this is a very professional looking build. Looking at the outside, it is hard to tell that it is a modified case, it looks like it has come directly from Apple.
One Question; What was the hardest part of this build?
One Request; To give some perspective, I would love to see a photo of you Short Stack, next to a full size G5.
Extremely beautiful buil Neil, wow is the only word I can use. Do you think you think that this size case could be done with a mini ITX board and a full size PSU? It probably wouldn't even be necessary to use a full size PSU moving forward with even i7 haswells and graphics cards getting more and more efficient.
The two part epoxy that is used is "J-B Weld" and is sold in the local hardware stores, usually located in the automotive section. The company is "J-B Weld Co., PO Box 483, Sulphur Springs TX 75483, USA" . And in our area a small package of two 1 oz tubes runs about $6 USD. And it does take a long 24+ hours for it too reach a full set. It does smell an little and is a sticky mess it miss-applied. However it is a good product.
There is a version labeled "Quick J-B Weld" which does not perform nearly as well as the original.

Approaching the conclusion of the project. This has been four months of 'fun' and I end up with a high performance machine that runs with the best.
If you have read down through the thread you may gain an appreciation for this end result. It falls short of my original goal where I set out to have a system on a slide in tray. I now have a better idea as to how to achieve my initial goal and I may cycle back and do another with a Haswell Micro ATX system.
As always, I welcome comments and questions.
