Been a follower of the community for sometime now and always wanted to try this mod out for myself. I recently acquired a working Powermac G5 off my local classifieds for only $60! AND I promise I will either use or give these working parts to someone else so that they can live on! ;)...
Hi everyone, I've been using my Hack for work for ~3 yrs now, but my wife encouraged me finally (and I quote): "go get your s*** online." So here's the build!
Big thanks to the community here for all that you do. Without the build guides and forums here, I never would have been able to get the...
A bit of context first.
I started this mod about four years ago, it took about a month to bring it to something very close to the current configuration. However, I have been improving it since then and now I feel like the time has come to publish it here, as it could be of some help...
I wanted to push watercooling to the most. Silent. Level. possible.
While gaming and also for working.
Quite a challenge and a lot to learn.
Thoughts on water-cooling:
It always depends on the use-case if water-cooling is more silent than air-cooling.
My personal experience:
Hi! just joined the forum as a way of paying back all the incredible and thoughtful advice provided by the community towards this project. Cannot thank you lot enough! I have decided to create a build log on the forum to continue the wonderful trend of mac pro conversions, Hope you guys like...

I like G5 case exterior so decided to do a cutting on interior, only.

Hi there everyone,
A few weeks ago I answered a local Craigslist ad about an Xserve with dual "550 series Xeons", for 150 euro. I immediately thought that it had to be a 3,1 Xserve and that they probably meant 5500 Nehalem Xeons, that can be officially be upgraded to El Capitan, and the guy...
My parents are working with Macs for a long time now and I have 3 old Power Macs G4. For this summer, i wanted a project to work on so I decided to mod one of the G4s just for fun.
In this thread, I will update my experience and progress for this awesome mod.
I decided to go...
Almost a year ago. I read a forum post on another website of of a guy named xxredxpandaxx modding an old apple XRAID. Essentially Gutting the unit and painstakingly soldering sata through the mother board to allows the caddies to hold SATA drives. It was a great idea and it got me...
Edit: I interrupted the Lego build. I am going ahead starting with the pi Case
HI to all. After weeks of reading I am taking courage and I decided to create a build "trashcan-Lunar" based...
Hello all, first post here. First attempt at building ANY computer. I've been a professional mac guy for 20+ years though. Handy in the shop, I have lots of tools.
What I don't have is a handle on things that long time builders probably know in their sleep: how to determine cooling needs.
I've been working on G5 case modding for some months and finally managed to get it almost Completed.
The concept of my build is a case for ultimate high-end workstation or gaming rig. Which can hold large SSI EEB mobo to support dual CPU configuration and possesses 9 expansion slots so...
I'm moding a G5 (A1093) and after striping the interior I've found a few chips attached to the case on the top and side. Can anyone tell me what they were for?

iMac G5 x86-mod with uATX Mainboard?
Hello again :)
A long time ago I planned a cube mod, but they are much too expensive - also the new hardware:problem:.
In this time I made my first Hackintosh:headbang:, a Lenovo/IBM T61 with 10.6.5 and 10.7 (Lion is very slow on it :S).
And now the old...
***This is my first post here on tonymac, so please let me know If I'm doing something incorrectly.***

Hi there! just signed up because I finally got a cube that I can use to bring it back to life and read a lot about existing case mods on this forum.Unfortunately, I cannot send personal messages to the creators of my favorite mods since I need to have 50 posts before I can do so...( :))...
So I have been running OSX on PC hardware all the way back since the Tiger days on a variety of computers that I've owned. However this is the first time I built one into an OLD Mac case. It took some work but I had a blast doing it and it turned out great.
So here are the meat and potatoes of...
Yes, I know. How. Freaking. Original. Yet another G4 Cube mod. But believe it or not, about a year ago when the idea first popped in my mind, I was naive enough to think nobody had come up it before. When I found out it was actually a “thing”, I was more than a little bummed. So much, in fact...
I recently finished my first hackintosh and wanted to try and mod a G4, i found a great deal and purchased an empty case and began taking it apart!
I just spray painted this week and will hopefully begin getting it ready for an mATX mobo.
I used a dremel to cut out the back io, so far so...
