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! ;)...
Since I owned a Powerbook G4 I wanted to own also a PowerMac and later a Mac Pro, but Apple never made one for me. One Tower Mac that I could argue to buy. After more then 15 years of using apple hardware I decided to build my own tower Mac. So there it is.
I got the inspiration for...
Hello, this is my first post.
I got a Powermac G5 and want to make a casemod now.
My question is if one has a good idea for the I/O shield.
I would like to try to change as little as possible from the outside.
Sorry for my bad english but I am from germany.
I've been lurking through this particular forum for years. I received a dead PowerMac G5 a long time ago, and immediately knew that some day it would become my first Hackintosh. And that day has finally come, thanks to the awesome builds I saw around here.
My PowerMac G5 was a 2004 dual 2.0 GHz...
So, I am officially crazy...
I bought 26 Powermacs (G5)
And I modded them ALL
They are now ready for ATX and mATX Mainboards…
But why 26?
Did I mention I was crazy?!
(And they were only sold together…)
I modded G5 Cases before – They kind of became my passion.
This time I wanted everything...

I bought a 2003 mac pro 1.8ghz duel off ebay, It installed osx 10.5 fine but when it restarted and played the welcome screen the power cord got pulled ( kids ! )
Since then it wont boot from the HD or the DVD. It chimes and then the apple logo loads but no spinning. I have reformatted the...
Hi there! This is the first post I make in this community, but it's the result of hundreds of hours spent lurking.
I present to you my PowerMac G5 Hackintosh:
This is the result of months of research, work and frustration.
The list of parts:
-Supermicro X8SIL-F Motherboard
As the title says, this is a long term project, as money/time allows. But I have a near perfect condition (just some surface scratches) PowerMac G5, that I'd like to build a mackintosh in. I already can run macOS on my current rig, which I'm replacing with a Xeon build. So I'll have the mobo...

I plan on upgrading the RAM to it's full 8 GB
And i'm thinking of getting a Nvidia 7800, as i heard the card is compatabile with both Mac and PC, correct?
Also, i'm thinking of perhaps...
I have been reading and exploring Tonymacx86 for a couple of months now but I finally decided to go for the adventure instead of buying a new Mac (currently owning a Macbook Pro mid-2010). Hence the name is this project : Goodbye Steve !
First, I posted a couple of weeks ago...
I've been lurking on these forums for a very long time and the time has finally come to contribute something back.

Finished my first PC build and my first mod. Used one of my old powermac G5's. Great fun to discover the whole community of G5 modifiers, wasn't aware there was this recycling movement going on! Have several more G5's waiting. Will be using this computer for heavy 3D rendering tasks and...

When I bought it, it looks like this.
After modding, it looks like this:
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...
Sorry if this may sound like a stupid question... I am new to this whole concept of a Hackintosh... But i love it!!!
