      I brought a custom computer from a friend for $10.00 dollars because he upgraded to new HP computer with i3 processor. From a what I can tell is this is a Frontier Torch TH18A computer case. Personally never heard of Frontier computer cases before. The plan is to use this case to build a computer from scratch to dual boot with Mac and Windows. Later down the road when I save up money then I will spring for a decent Graphics Card.

      Here is PC part list

      Have you checked out that board to make sure it's Mac/Hackintosh compatible?

      From my research on Hackintosh's Gigabyte motherboards seem to be more compatible than other motherboards. Tonymac and Insanelymac forums are the two forums I researched before hand. Here is a thread of someone using the motherboard I picked and got it working.

      If you are already spending almost $600 on the other components why not just buy a new, modern case for ~$60 that doesn't look like you found it in a dumpster?

      EDIT: Some great examples:

      There's not much to a case, wipe it out and it will work. Can-o-spray paint or plasti dip (external) might look neat too. Or grab a new one if you feel the need. If you find you need to replace any of the buttons or ports on that case just replace it. By the time you fix it your going to be at the replacement level of a basic case.

      If the case I purchased for $10.00 dollars doesn't work out for whatever the reason. I will keep it for cheaper build in the future then ultimately sell it. Speaking of computer cases NZXT has refurbished cases that they sell. The Source 210 Elite black case is $29.99 with a 1 year warranty. They even have a option to make sure your part is compatible with their cases. Just type part name and it will search PCpartpicker to check if it is compatible. I don't mind buying a refurbished computer case if it saves me a little money.

      I won't be using this case because of a couple reasons. Reason number one is there is no place to properly mount a 2.5 inch SSD. Cable management is not ideal in this case you cannot neatly tuck your cables. Instead I went ahead and brought an Corsair Carbide 100R ATX Mid-Tower. The only drawback with this case which is not a huge deal is no micro SD card reader mounting slot. For $49.99 it will do everything I need it to do.
