Hello again Tonymacx86 forums, it's been too long since my last post(All six of them, I know!)! This will be my second Power Mac case mod: some of you may remember the G5 Case that I did last year Rotten Apple G5 Case Mod. I decided to do this project with a log because of the advice that I always see on these forums. I'm hoping I can give some insight as well as potentially ask the thoughts of modders with more experience with G4 cubes. I've been toying with the idea of building another computer for the past few months and finally caved last weekend. The reason I have been wanting to build another computer is that my G5(although I love it) is just huge! I wasn't initially going to be doing another Apple case mod. I had picked up an Arctic White BitFenix Prodigy(ITX) case on Criagslist and was about to pull the trigger on the project, but something just didn't feel right. The Prodigy is very similar in design to the G5 and just wasn't different enough for me. I also started heavily looking at the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv iTX, but in all reality, it is still a big case and its not what I want or need. In comes the G4 Cube I always liked the idea of the G4 Cube because it is small, looks great on a desk and feels akin to something out of a Syfi movie when you open it up(insert rolling fog on open). I tend to be a bit of a hardware snob when building computers for myself, but when it comes down to it, I can fit everything I need into the Cube and (hopefully) not want for more. This build takes a good chunk of inspiration from a modder by the name of Shuntong at ChipHell.com and his Mac Cube X99. While I love how his build came out, I love originality as well! I plan to take elements inspired by his build and put a bit of spin on them! Hardware (Build Plans have gone through a large change(See later posts)! While I have the parts list ironed out, for the most part, I'd like to keep some mystery to this build log! When I get hardware I'll update the list below with exact part and a link!) Motherboard: -- ASRock X99E-ITX/ac - Still using Socket 2011-3! Processor: -- Intel Xeon E5-XXXX ES - More than 6 Cores at 2.2Ghz. More information later! Heat Sync: -- Stock Heatsink with Custom Heatpipes Video Card: -- PNY Quadro K1200 Memory: -- Crucial 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 Boot SSD: -- SAMSUNG SM951 M.2 512GB Storage: -- 2x 2.5 inch HDD/SSD Power: -- 250 Watt HDPLEX PSU Disk Drive: -- Panasonic UJ-240 6X 3D Blu-ray Burner Anyone here have experience in custom heat syncs? Here are a few pictures of my new cube! Other than the normal hairline fractures around the top mounts, it's in excellent shape! Open to any questions! I'll try and check in on the thread a few times a day when possible. --Word to the wise: This will be a slow build log!
