still a bit of tidying up to do and some decisions on painting some parts, but I'm happy with the machine and its outcome as a case mod, clearly still a bit of work to go. Deciding where to place the PSU took a week of pondering, id seen others who had gone for shuttle PSU's but I wanted more power...just in case.
I found someone else who put it on the door...so....:thumbup:

OK, almost complete now, as you can see from the above pictures I've gone for a subtle colour scheme.
I am happy with my first mod `hackintosh'. upgraded to 10.9.3 and all is well.


Now running 10.11.4 all smooth, upgraded to nVidia GTX 650 graphic card (1024mb), had to cut the plastic heat sink guard to make it fit, now on 8GB RAM, added a wifi pci card, as was having issues running a USB wifi dongle, App store didn't work.
Switch the OSX boot drive on to SSD and added another 2TB WD hard drive.
evolution.
