    Vishaakje's iMac 20" mod

    Some quick answers, since I don't have a lot of time right now. As I said I have a company so very short on time :( - I'm using the DC3217IYE witch runs fine off 12V. I couldn't find it anywhere in the tech specs but I just asked Intel and they told me it should work, so I just went for it...

    Vishaakje's iMac 20" mod

    Deleted the progress because I'm running Yosemite right now without a problem! :D Main thing was to cap the video card memory at 128Mb, now all glitches are gone. When installing Yosemite the main thing is to use the Clover boot loader and not install Chimaera through Multibeast. The nuc's...

    Vishaakje's iMac 20" mod

    Allright, a lot has happened :) The first time around getting everything wired up I used liquid electrical tape to secure the connections to the DVI connector. I was so happy moving along I didn't test it enough and it proved to be a bad move. It would ignite the backlights but no screen...

    Vishaakje's iMac 20" mod

    That's brilliant, I won't be keeping an optical drive. But switching from the 5V should work nicely. Thanks you! I'm off googling for parts :)

    Vishaakje's iMac 20" mod

    Allright, the thing is looking good! I love the iMac. I'm running into a brain bender though. The system fan is a Noctua fan I bought and it runs on standard 12v, but.... From the native PSU you only get 12v 'always on' lines so the fan would always be on if the system is plugged in. Not...

    Vishaakje's iMac 20" mod

    Thanks for the encouragements :) I've taken pictures all along, so I'll be able to update soon. Found out some pretty nice things already! Turns out the NUC has a 19v power brick but dismantling the NUC and hooking it up to the 'always on' part of the native PSU it runs super smooth on 12v...

    Vishaakje's iMac 20" mod

    So as promised I would post my build progress. I've just gutted the iMac and started the build. I'll be using the original PSU and an intel NUC, but details will follow once I get the thing done. I'm making pictures as I go so I'll post some here regularly. In advance: Sorry if the updates...

    An Amazing Find for My Next Project -- iMac G4 20"

    You're right ersterhernd, your build and topic are great to read up upon before starting the build. I just gutted the first 20" iMac (was able to buy another 20" for just 40 euro, that's about 52 USD) and ordered the first set of parts and NUC. I'll be reusing the iMacs PSU, but will open a...

    Ersterhernd's NUCiMac G4

    Thought I'd finally post something here too since I've been reading the forums for years now :) Finally found (and bought) a decent iMac 20" last week so I'll be modding that one very soon. It will be used as an office mac in my company, since the design of the old iMac is so pretty it will...

    iMac G4 20in NUC mod - CelestialTower

    Awesome man, I've had an iMac 20" for years and sold it many years ago. Finally I bought one last week, a fine second hand specimen, just having it as is on my desk makes me happy :) It's such a wonderful design. I'll be modding this one too once I find the time. I'm looking into what...
