Got a spare hackintosh with some extra time so spent a week built this case.

Genius MrArmmani built the original hackintosh for me. I simply put all the hardware into the case

motherboard: X99 something
CPU: Xeon 2683
Graphic card GTX Titan X
System: High Sierra

once graphic cards goes cheaper I’ll change an AMD card and upgrade to Big Sur.

The biggest challenge is to fit the full ATX board in the case. I have to cut the corner remove the old mouse and keyboard io plug to make it fit. Super risky. I was like: If this board dies I’ll just buy a MATX.

the speaker doesn’t work so I cut a LED light bulb and fit it instead.

Since I work in film post color grading so I need some extra storage. Kept the 2 soft raid for data and SSD for system on top of the case.

I tried to keep everything original as possible. Water cooler holder is from the fan cover. Original power board soldered with wires connected to motherboard.

Used ML120 RGB water cooler. Surprisingly found out the controller actually works with 8 dollar LED strip from Home Depot so added some additional lights.

I’m not good at painting so it’s not smooth if you look closely but I’m ok with it. Gonna be better in the next build!
