I will start by saying admitting I have done a G5 conversion before, about 8 years ago, I was generally unimpressed with the result and it didn't become a permanent feature of my desk as it represented to many shortcuts and quite a bit of impatience on my part. Here...
Hello everyone, i'm losing my mind trying to remove this darn top shelf.
I've taken out every screw that I've seen others online do, but it just won't budge.
Pictures below, what am I missing?!
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...

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...

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...
