Use 27" iMac case as hackintosh
I have a 27" i7 imac and its starting to get pretty slow. I figured that since the case was pretty thick and the screen was not very big, It would be possible to gut it and still use the display (1440p, really good display) and the case (upcycling) and building either a pc or a hackintosh in there. The cables for a power supply could be daisy chained to each other and I can keep the PSU out of the case running into it. Or i could still use the internal psu, or get a new one from ifixit.
Parts in intend to use:
mobo: one of the supported ones here:http://rampagedev.wordpress.com/
gpu: gtx780/770 (AMD cards will run pretty hot and the ventilation on this case is not exactly the best)
storage: maybe 1tb/2tb hdd or a smaller SSD maybe 256gb/500gb
CD drive: doesn't work anymore, maybe use the drive tray from ifixit for extra drive
PSU: if i did use one, i'll keep it out of the case. maybe CoolerMaster V750W or Corsair RM 750W
If you have any reccommendations on the parts i've used, i'd really like some help, I don't mind drilling some holes in or using a metal plate on the back either
I had experience building a pc already, here's the specs if u wanna know:
-H110 (they ran out of H110i stock so I ended up drilling holes in my case only to find out that I could remove the front drive bays off the top of my HAF stacker case)
-2 256gb samsung pro ssd in raid 0
-asus rog maximus vi formula
-2tb WD green HDD
-asus gtx 780 DCU2OC
Is this a good question?
