    WaterMac - Apple Powermac G5 Case Modding - Watercooling experiments

    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: Air-cooling is...

    FezClone's MirrorCut PowerMac G5 case modification

    Hi there! My name is FezClone, and I was recently gifted a PowerMac G5 from around 2003. I turned it on and.... Nothing. It was $20 though. So, with an extremely heavy paperweight, I thought to myself.. I could make this a stupidly cool case. A complete overkill monstrosity of a build. So...

    Simple Power "Hack" Mac G4 (Sawtooth)

    I just finished my first mod using an case of Power Mac G4 model Sawtooth. Bought one from about U$40 here in Brazil. Shipped already free of motherboard, drives and power source. 8 bucks for shipping and that's all for the case. Good bargain in my opinion. Here is a victim's picture before...

    Anyone tried a PowerMac case mod?

    Dear All, I built my first hack over a year ago and so far it has been very stable: thanks to all the help I got at TonyMac - and by following their recommended parts list. Great experience. I now want to try something more unconventional. I have an old PowerMac 8600 sitting at home -...

    Porkstacker’s G3 hackintosh

    I have many spare Powermacs lying around– G3s, G4s, etc., so I decided to try my hand at stuffing PC guts into one of the cases. I’d originally planned on using an AGP G4, but then realised the process would be much easier with a G3 Yosemite case. I just happened to have one, but it is not...
