Re: My Next eelmod: G4 Cube

Thanks guys!

Well this one will be the template for 3 other Cube mods so it has to be good.
I should receive the mother board and CPU by weeks end and from there I will figure out proper mobo placement and how I will handle the middle aluminum heat sink.

Re: My Next eelmod: G4 Cube

Not gonna lie, I signed up just for this thread! I have a G4 Cube that so far I've left unmodded and used as a DVD player (yes the drive surprisingly still works properly) but wanted to do something else with it. I think I now have an idea and somewhat of a goal.

lol Well welcome and hi :D

As soon as I get all part I will revamp the first post and thread title because then the build is on! By tomorrow I should have mobo, I am not sure about PSU brick as I got a report that the Cubes PSU brick didn't work with the Pico PSU plug. If that is the case I will need to order a new PSU brick but I will cross that bridge when I get there. As for the DVD drive, I really want to upgrade it to blu-ray but I might just end up getting a newer iMac DVD drive for it.

Re: My Next eelmod: G4 Cube

Nice progress so far. The fitting of the IO plate looks professional!

However, I think I prefer the G5 cube. :D
