    **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
    -Buy the laser hive backplate with top mounted psu
    -Get a blu ray drive to replace the old superdrive ? ( not a priority)
    -Get the least noisy fans I can in 120m
    -Get sound dampening material ?
    -Assemble the lot !

    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?
