everyday for 5 years i have been refreshing this page.....Its taken me 5 years to write a reply.
I’m pleased to say the G5 build is still going strong. I’ve moved house several times since building the machine, a real life saver that Apple designed these machines with the ‘handles’. Unfortunately its taken a little bit of a beating and now has some scuffs here and there, but it remains undented.
The graphics card and processor have change, but the rest is exactly how it was in the last post. The styling and design of these cases still appeals to me to this day, and I’m so glad I made this PC.
If I could change a few things, adding sound insulation would certainly be on the cards. The hard drives used in the original build are still the same I’m using now. They’ve developed a tick and clack sound after the years of service they’ve provided. I think I would also add some sort of dust screen behind the front mesh, as the components are absolutely caked in dust. Tonight was the first time I’ve had the side of since I changed the components in 2017. I think a long overdue service is well in order.
Thank you to those who supported me with this, I really hope your G5 builds came out as well as you had desired.
My next response will be in a few years I imagine. Until then.
only joking, well done though!
