Hello MacTester, my compliments for your build, are all exceptional!
I would like to follow your footsteps...
Do you think that I can use the Intel Mobo with Noctua sink in the Power Mac Cube G4 Case?
I would use this solution for simplicity.
Thanks

Hi pep_one

Thanks for the praise. Yes, that should work, if you mount the Noctua heatsink to the board and its fan between the latching mechanism, where the old cooling lamellas were. To ensure a good heat transport, you will also need a thin 80mm case fan in the original fan support.

Good luck with your project and remember the old modder's wisdom 'think twice, cut once'. And do not forget - we want to see pics!

Oh, I see only now your answer!
Thank you for advices, MacTester.
I'll mount a Zalman low profile heatsink, probably.
At the moment, I'm waiting that my Cube arrives at my home... ;)

Thanks for the praise!

Is there an iPod battery overheat risk if it stays on power plugged all the time?

No, because the iPod has a good battery charge control. Works flawless.

No, I had a lot do in the company last week... :beachball:

I only did the following:
-Patched and installed the new 0051 BIOS
-Made a new DSDT (attached) View attachment 56725
-HDMI audio edit according to this guide: http://www.tonymacx86.com/general-help/86205-patcho-simple-hex-binary-patcher.html#post538616
-Replaced the WiFi card (which I had "stolen" for the Cube) with a new one

This SW changes were done on the Cube too.

The Player is running fine in the living room so far.

Hi MacTester, I have begin my build and installed patched 0051 bios.
When I use your posted DSDT, I have kernel panic. Without DSDT the boot is perfect. The only difference that I use cpu Intel core i3-3225.
Can you explain this behaviour?
Thank you so much for your effort!

EDIT:
The DSDT include SJ_Underwater Usb3 patch?

Hey MacTester57,

lovely piece of hardware you made! I´d like to do the same cause I want to make a Hackintosh that controls my iTunes library without having to use a big monitor or such.
Question therefore: can you mill bezels yourself for a certain sum or would you be willing to share your CAD-files so I can mill them here?
Thanks for your answer!

BTW: are you Swiss?

Greetings from Heidelberg.

Hi michaelctanner

Welcome to the community and thanks for the praise!

It's against the board rules to sell things here and I don't have the time at the moment.

You can find all the PDF files of this build in the attachment. Have fun with milling!

Gruss aus der Schweiz
MacTester

BTW: don't forget to post pics of your build
