    The PowerPC Hub's Power Mac G5 Hackintosh Build

    It really is too bad that graphics card manufacturers are putting those power ports facing the side instead of facing the back, otherwise the plastic air-shield could be put back on. Major props though Goftrey. You did a way better job than I did.

    G5 Case Mod Color Scheme Poll

    Merry Christmas to you too! I have a distinct feeling if that matte black was changed to Space Gray, I would have no trouble voting for it.

    God-speed sir. Glad you got that cut-out as a template.

    Powermac G5 ATX Mod in Audi RS6 Gray

    Aww yeah, that is one classy paint job. I aim to get mine painted "Space Gray" like the new MacBooks, maybe a tad darker, complete with polished Apple logo.

    Continuity and Handoff Capable Apple Mini Cards + PCIe and mini-PCIe Adapters

    Took me about five days on free shipping, from Amazon. Not bad. Also; if you're having issues with one feature of the card running, and if you guys plug yours into any other type of PCIe slot than 1, reset your CMOS before spending money on those adapters. It worked for me, and it's free...

    Favorite Old school Motherboard

    Be prepared, we're going way back for this one. Mine is the Abit KT7A. The Athlon XP proc over clocked another 300 MHz to make a 1.33 GHz processor. Probably the most stable OC ever. Also forayed into RAM overclocking, but let's not get into that. The most awesome thing about it was being...

    Fans fans fans

    Logged in to support the "people are buying more fans than they need to" viewpoint. Basically I got a stock CPU cooler, the GPU cooler, and a 60mm fan for the hard drive bay (60mm because I selected it on accident, but it works, even better now that I swapped out a couple of 3.5" hard drives for...

    How do I spruce up my G5 Mod: All suggestions are welcome

    How do I create an external button for the blu ray burner on the outside of my chassis? http://www.tonymacx86.com/powermac-g5/10479-how-add-dvd-eject-button-mac-pro-g5-cases.html This looks to be a good discrete but functional combo. This is the only way I know of since the entire front of the...

    modding psu question

    These types of mods are my favorite, where everything looks like it just belongs together. Stellar work Neil.

    modding psu question

    While I used 2 60mm fans to retain as much of the stock look as possible (and because I didn't cut my ATX PSU to fit it in the case), if you cut your ATX PSU case, either one will be good. You may capture warmer air from the top, but I don't think you'll have any overheating issues, since air...

    Vintage hack

    That's one of the slickest setups I've ever seen.

    QQAT - the Quick Question Answer Thread for PowerMac G5 Hacks

    Alright guys; I'm going for a solder-free build, and I already both looked in and taken apart my ATX PSU's housing and looked in depth, and I can't get the internals out without a de-solder. So, I'm stuck with either cutting the existing shell to the right height to fit in the G5 PSU, or mount...

    Building a Budget Haswell Build: How Low Can You Go?

    You can get a little cheaper by buying a motherboard from a different manufacturer, but the work required to get a "native" OS X install goes through the roof; or the quality of the board decreases. It's better to spend the extra ~$15. I had a fully functional Hackintosh using an MSI board at...

    G5 Mod Something Just A little Different

    I got to say; I like that Apple cut-out in the front of the case. If I decide to do a heavy cosmetic mod to my case, I'll definitely incorporate that into the design.
