Hi MrAhlefeld,

?

When I look at your picture "Back with motherboard mounted", your work on the back is nice and respectful at the same time.

Even if I am a follower of "no cut of all kinds", it's the best of the both worlds.

Amazing craftsmanship! I will be flattering the OP with as close an identical build as possible.

 

Would love to know the sas/sata cage model # as well as which server the donor back plate came from :)

Sorry for the extremely late reply :)

Backplate was cut from a HP PROLIANT ML310 just like this one:

Alot has been done to this mod, since I first completion....

Many MAC lovers will not agree on my beastly modification with a RAD on top, but I really don't care :)

Will post an updated pic.
