Edit (15th of january 2014):
As this build gets so much attention I think I have to clarify some details.
I am NOT the builder of this mod. I got the permission of the "modder" to present the mod here. The original thread of the build has been in a german forum, which name I am not allowed...
I was really pleased by my first mod and enjoyed building it, but two things haven't been as good as I wanted them to be:
- air flow for the GPU
- dust in the system
Worklog of my first mod: http://www.tonymacx86.com/powermac-g5/83498-dschijns-g5-mod.html
The goals for this projects...
I have installed 10.8.4 on my Asus board mit the HD4000 graphics.
After some testing and Multibeast instalation&reboot I had a working system.
After the reboot I:
- set GraphicsEnabler=No in Multibeast
- Shut down the PC
- plugged in the Geforce 670 (worked on my UD5H @ 10.8.3 GE=No)
I will start my 2nd G5 Mod in the near future.
For this project I will use the knowledge I got from my first mod and all the great inspiration from you!
My plans are:
- almost inaudible cooling
- keep the components dust free
- two 3,5" HDDs + two 2,5" SSDs in the upper part
I know I know… I should have picked up the G5 by myself. Unfortunately I didn't, because I don't have a car (master student) and it was too far away.
The G5 I got from eBay does have the typical bent stand of the rear stand on the right side (G5 door side).
I guess it happend...
I am trying to get my hands on another 2004 G5, but the people on eBay are crazy…
Because I still have a late 2005 in the basement, I am thinking of starting my 2nd mod on the baby.
I read that I can replace the Frontpanel board with one of the 2004 models.
Did someone made...

I got inspired by all the beautiful G5 Mods here at Tonymacx86!
Thanks to you guys!
Getting a G5 Case
Finding a G5 Case took me quite some time. I tried to get one on...
In the next 1-2 days I will recieve my new EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW.
Currently I am using OSX 10.7.4 with an flashed for Mac ATI HD 5870.
What is the easiest way to get the 670 working? I would like to continue working with Lion, because I have to finish my thesis and am afraid of Mountain...
Did you set your "System Memory Multiplier" to 16.00?
Also it's important to set the correct SPD settings! (for i.e. 9-9-9-28)
If the cooler is in silent mode that temps can be normal. In general 75°C should be the max limit for OCed CPUs.
I build my Hackintosh with a 6870HD.
But I already owned a flashed 5870HD in my old MacPro (which I want to sell).
Because I mounted a watercooler on the 5870 and that kind of system wil be difficult to sell, I want to build the 5870 into my Hackintosh.
For the 6870 I activated in Multibeast...
I am very happy with my Hackintosh, just the fans of my Gigybyte 6870 are a little noisy…
And because I've a dual boot system I tried to modify the gpu bios in Windows.
Extracted the original ROM, changed the fan profile and flashed it.
-flashing with winflash gave me a strange fan...
I had some trouble with the App Store and decided to reinstall Lion again (was just 2 days old).
I also added my Apple Wlan card and installed with the guide from the blog (just like before).
Did run Java Upgrade, 10.7.2 Upgrade and Multibeast with a DSDT.
But after the the reboot:
