    **I'm edition this post to not clutter the forum**
    **I will update this thread with pictures of my progress as it goes along

    I'm almost ready to to build my Hackintosh in the case

    What I have (material)
    1x 2004 G5 case with a bump on the top (stripped out by me)
    1x 2005 G5 case with no scratches ( stripped out by me)
    1x 2Usb3 to 21 pin cable
    a fully functioning Hackintosh

    To do :
    -Buy a filter to put up front of the G5 Probably something like that http://www.ebay.ca/itm/232087868274?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2648
    -Lime down the firewire port to be able to fit the usb3 cable

    -Get a blu ray drive to replace the old superdrive ? ( not a priority)

    -Get sound dampening material ?
    -Assemble the lot !


    The Hack:
    My mackintosh has been running fine for about 6 months now.
    my part list is as follow
    Gigabyte Z170xp-sli ( bios f6)
    intel i7 6700k
    32gb G.Skill ripsaw 2400
    240mm Iao from arctic cooling
    4tb+3tb hdd from seagate
    120gb ssd from samsung
    Evga 770 sc from evga
    Broadcom BCM94360CD Dual Band 1300Mbps 802.11AC PCI-E WiFi Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter
    noctua nf-p12 x2
    noctua nf-p12 pwm x2

    Every function works as intended, but I'm gonna buy an ssd soon so I can dual boot windows. I'll probably use the opportunity to upgrade my bios and reinstall Sierra because at this moment, my clover is a bit of a mess with like 6 .config files.

    That is a Mountainmod backplate and NOT laserhive. The two are quite different in terms of size (and so fit).
    With Laserhive, more of the case will need to be cut (as the backplate is larger) and will most likely need reinforcement internally to support JB weld.

    I see, I'm about to pull the trigger on the thing, I'll see how it goes.

    would soldering the 2 parts be better than jb weld?
