The Messy Part:

They said it isn't modding if it's not messy... :D

Here are some of the photos when I tried to use the G5 Case as it is with the original fans on my q6600 pc. with the original PSU casing using a generic psu(it works and it was really easy.) I really just had a hard time on the fans.

I just realized back then that I really cannot use my G5 Case without cutting the back and replace it with ATX plate.

Also photos showing all the parts on the floor and a photo of my daughter helping me on modding... helping me delaying my mod XD

This is a good build and it's nice to see a G5 with a well designed back panel. Most people just butcher the heck out of the back on these things. :thumbup:

thanks man! my original plan was not to cut the back of my G5. but since I really need all the things at the back of my mobo, I decided to cut it. before I gutted it I thought of it many times with the help of Laser Hive also and my colleagues here at work.

I would never have done this without their help. Cutting/Filing takes really a lot of patience and time.
