The apple logo was just an iPhone home button sticker I got off eBay. Originally it had a chrome ring around it. Over the years, that came off.
Nice job!So when I first started looking into G5 mods, I found this interesting Display + iMac stand mod, and I knew I wanted to do the same. I didn't hate the stand that my Samsung UR55 came with but since my desk is so small, it just took a lot of space I feel like.

(Sorry about the messy background) I got the iMac stand from Ebay for 30$ and it's in almost like new condition though with some marks of use. The iMac Vesa mount adapter I got from amazon, luckily my monitor uses the 75x75 mount so I didn't have to get an adapter for that. I also got some M3 screws to put this thing together with.

All put together, it's not necessarily the most beautiful thing out there but it does the trick! I'm contemplating if I should spray paint it with the same color than my G5 to create more contrast between the stand and the display.
But for now I'm gonna leave it as it is, overall I think it looks pretty clean.
Looks good and clean! I love the little apple logo, nice touch. Yours is attached with a different mechanism, does the tilt work that way?
Thank you sir. Yes, the tilt does still work that way, but it's a much older imac stand. Yours is newer and more sleek. I think the mechanism is different. I really like how sharp yours looks with the newer design.Looks good and clean! I love the little apple logo, nice touch. Yours is attached with a different mechanism, does the tilt work that way?
That's indeed a very impressive mod, though it might be a little too ambitious project for me. The computer does turn on and the seller said it works, but I haven't been able to test it yet properly. I might just do that for now, but my idea was to mod the case at some point.Yup, you got the bug alright. Nice catch btw, she's a keeper. Mad86 has a nice looking Mac Pro. The back came out looking real nice:
I've recently converted my Mac Pro 2009 to a PC, the goal was to make it as clean as possible. The cable extended from the rear is for HDMI output, since I'm not using a discrete graphic card. I recorded the whole conversion process in 4K, I hope this helps. There will be a total of 4...www.tonymacx86.com
But... does the computer still work? If it does, you could always use a patched version of Mojave to run on your machine, and drop a gtx 760 in there.
