Hi everyone! I've been lurking here for quite awhile and I have wanted to do my own G5 mod for the longest time, and since I've had a lot of free time this autumn I decided to start one. English isn't my native language, but hopefully I'm comprehensible.
Also disclaimer - This is my first ever...
I recently purchased 3 G5 cases (2 of which are fully functional and the third is just an empty case) and I am really excited about starting my hackintosh G5 modding project. (yay :D)
I have all the needed tools for cutting and modifying the case, apart from a solid aluminum...
This is a guide to help me remember what I needed to do to get Sierra up and running. I found lots of help to get El Capitan running, but as I was creating my new machine I *needed* Sierra to work because my Photos library which is huge had already been converted to Sierra’s Photos app. Besides…...

Hey everyone, I just got Power Mac G5 for about 99 bucks from some guy on facebook. I got Early 2005 Dual CPU 2.0GHz Model. I think that pretty OK to me but I got some questions for you guys.
Every things work just fine but one day I noticed that while my surfing on the net sometimes it...

Here is my latest hackintosh project - The G5 Phantom.
Chassis: ---------- Powermac G5
Motherboard: ---- MSI z97M
Ram: ------------- 16 GB HyperX Fury...
So my G5 mod is done, and everything is working pretty well. I reused the front cpu fans and currently have them wired to molex 12v. Loud as heck, and I have harmonic whine. Temps are great, however I'm worried about the airflow. The intake fans are blowing much more air in than the rear 2x80mm...
The main case mod goals i had in mind.
To use the G5 fans.
To keep the same airflow.
Not take out the top shelf
Balancing keeping the G5 as original as I can without compromising on the build.
The core mods that i made: (beyond fitting laser hive's 120 low mATX Kit):
G5 Fan Mod...
Okay, here goes attempt two!
Below is the G5 I acquired for £40 from eBay. It was the Late 2005 water-cooled dual CPU quad core with 6GB of RAM.
It didn't work when I purchased it, so all is good! I have already stripped the contents out and removed the PSU, as well as come to a conclusion on...
This is my second post about my now oldish PowerMac which has gone through various stages over the last 5 years of so. I've tried different configurations before settling for this one, which I'm very pleased about and that I thought I would share.
I wanted it to be all...
My 1st Attempt at this G5 mod as i thought i had screwed up a perfectly working 2005 G5 computer as i am only making it up as i go along because I'm going to get rid of that beast of a cooler master sniper tower, I've asked a friend to cut the rear of the tower to fit the motherboard tray and...
Toos his first G5 Mod *Buildlog Day 3
*First of all sorry for my horrible English i hope you guys don't mind ;).
So i did my first full working Hackintosh mod. But i was not satisfied.
The thing is. It is so easy to make a full working hackintosh with the guides. But build it in a...
I've been reading up on the mods I can make and came up with an idea I don't even know will work.
I am going to remodel the inside of a DVD drive that I have right now to act as a hot swap for a 2.5" HDD. I was hunting around and found an IR proximity module that is made for the Arduino boards...
As this is my first post on the forum I thought it fitting to introduce myself. My name is Jordan, and I have absolutely no experience in case-modding! I have been scouring the forums to build up a base knowledge and decide what my requirements will be. I have stripped down my...

Hi everyone, just wanted to start off by thanking the amazing community we have here who helped me get my hackintosh running about 9 months ago.
Anyway here it is:

Hello, all. I was in the market for a used Intel based Mac, but when I saw this G5, I got a great idea. Little did I know that there is a whole community of people with the same idea. When my wife saw the computer, she immediately asked if she can have it, so I said sure. So, here I am...
