The motherboard, processor and ram are from the mac mini build, so installation and Multibeast was no problem at first. On first boot, and since following an update, I have had to boot to safe mode to add/re-add a Graphics Mode string to the boot plist. That is detailed in the build page noted at the beginning of this paragraph. Currently I have not added a hz number, but it doesn't seem to need it. Since there is an SSD and no optical drive, the machine is quite quiet despite what some had said about the eMac's fan. It is not that loud. Perhaps being plugged into a PC fan header has slowed it down. I should really check temps, fans, etc. Haven't done that yet on either of my Hacks. Next step is to find a home for this guy so I can use it. May end up at parents, or at work. So here are some pics... and on to the next project after Haswell (and maybe Mavericks) gets sorted out... Apple IIgs. The first computer that I bought on my own. Mine was thrown out about 5 years ago, but I found this clean empty case on eBay. I am already mocking it up for a mini itx and flex power supply. There may be a front panel in the works for this one too, but they are all black or silver now. Stay tuned!
