I have modded two G5's in the past couple of years and thought I was finished modding until I started reading the G4 Cube threads. Well I got hooked real quick and started to look for justification to build one. I decided out guest bedroom needed a computer station for our guests
Thanks for the replies. I will post some pics but there about the same as this project except I did replace DVD drive with one that was mentioned in one of the threads. I had to cut the case of the original drive housing to get it to fit. The bottom fan also had to have its corner cut more to...
Well I'm back from the holidays and have made progress on my Cube project. I followed your design methodology and used most of the same components. Thanks to this forum I have successfully got the cube running Mavericks.
Perfect cube (No scratches)
Mobo/I/O Plate alignment questions
Did you attach aluminum blocks to screws and mobo and align on rails before you JB weld. I was trying to get a better idea on how you did all of that tricky stuff
I have all the parts needed but will start dismantle soon
Thanks it helps greatly..I ordered wireless card and found DVD drive from the thread you mentioned.
I will order touch device in near future
I will start removing old components soon and probably have more questions as I progress
I am in the planning stage on G4 Cube. I have purchased cube,dq77kb Mobo,CPU cooler,top /bottom fans,20 inch Cinema Display , keyed,mouse
I am planning on using i3 3225 (to be purchased)
I had some questions on some details in your build if you had time to respond it would help in the...
Ok I have your recommended board on order. Any suggestion on I3 vs I7 ?
I probably won't actually start cutting etc until January
The cube I got actually is running OS 9 I think. It's not here yet
I will be following one of your threads for the build
I applaud your work and have been following this thread getting educated on the process. I have a G4 Cube on the way. I have modded a G5. This will be a challenge for sure.
Is there another mobo that can be used like GIGABYTE GA-H77TN ?
Is the main difference the power supply onboard? and...
thanks for the quick response. I have modded a G5 already but after seeing yours I bought another case and would like to replicate what you designed.
I plan to put in an I7 Haswell. It will be a winter project with most of it fabricating the case so I may have questions from time to...
Fantastic work. Thanks for posting
I have a G5 case and was wondering on your mod how you fabricated the excellent metal work
How did you bend Mobo base metal to standoff base also how did you fasten standoffs ?
Did you fabricate a new cover for psu?
Did you use micro atx Mobo ?
I have installed a new GT640 and now I can't get by white screen/Apple logo
I have been running 10.8.2 with a GeoForce 9800GTX with no problems
I tried Graphics Enabler=no-PCIRootUID=0 & 1
I also have a third HDD that I did a clean install of ML 10.8.2 and the GT 640 worked but when I...
Ok so I have 10.7.1 running fine. I tried to update both ways to 10.7.2 (combo as well as software update) Both times I hang at Apple Logo.
-v I get PCI Config
I also fail Multibeast 4.0.3
OK..I got a stop at PCI Config Begin
Update: Problem solved. for some unknown reason I had to unplug my bluetooth dongle.
Booted up ok with update installed. Booted again and all went well??
Thanks for the support
I downloaded the next from this post and installed it. I have the Rocketfish adapter and I also am running Lion.
It worked the first time I put system to sleep but now all I can do is hit the power switch and it comes out of sleep.
