So finally! The conclusion of the build is soon. I received a call from East Coast Powder coating here in Jacksonville telling me the case will be ready to pick up tomorrow! I plan on doing a full fledged video on it as well as photos with this beast

I also have a Halo Covenant Banshee case build in the works based on the SilverStone Raven RV01

(Separate thread obviously)

That will be a blast to build and definitely something to see! Eventually bringing up my youtube channel about PC mods. Stay tuned!

   So personally I would like to extend a thank you to everyone who made this mod possible,

Claymeow (Vector for decals)

Bosco (Because OverclockersClub)

Ccokeman (Broken Corsair H50 for an add on mod for this)

and everyone on the forum for the support.

 

There is still some minor cable management and hiding I have to do but I was too exciteded not to show you guys! 7 solid power hours just to put everything back together and wire it up!

Really nice work. The G5 case is one of the best designs IMO. All about airflow. I still have my G5 tower collecting dust, have even thought about recycling it. You may have gave me the motivation to do something with it.

 The airflow is pretty fantastic I'm not going to lie. I did have to overcome some weird engineering issues but it was pretty fun. On my overclock I get 12*c idle and 45*c full load without any of my controller fans on, Pretty proud of it.

Think i know somebody with one of these old g5 setting in a basement; might see if they want to get rid of it.
This is the only use for anything mac/apple I've ever liked (what can i say... I realy don't like mac/apple products but the g5 case itself is nice)
Nice build and love the recycling of the case.

Do you really keep your room at ~50 F?

Tolerance is a sign of weakness.
