Hi all..


I have begun a new build, and its my first build since the 90' ...

Its a replacement for my old Apple Mac Mini, that  died on me some weeks ago. Then I look a the prices, and went for a HackInTosh build.

(And there went my savings for the trip to New York)

Its a workingstation build, not a gaming rig, for that I have my consoles.


Here is some specs:

  • Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor
  • Enermax LiqMax II 240 AIO Liquid CPU cooler
  • Gigabyte GA-Z170X-UD5 TH ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
  • G.Skill TridentZ Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Memory
  • Corsair RM 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
  • Thermaltake Core P5 ATX Mid Tower Case

I finish the first stage: Assembly of the Core P5 chassis, that will be the main platform.

ATM I'm installing the main hardware, so we can make the first boot and do some testing.

When its up an running, I have to do the planning of:

  • Where to mount my drives, and how.
  • Where to install the Raspberry Pi. ( more on the Pi later)
  • Where to install RGB leds.
  • Water cooling design and mount.

You can follow my build, and join in if you want. Everything is shared on BitBucket


Pictures, more info and progress comming soon..


Best regards
