After 6 1/2 years I decided to replace my good old early 2008-20" iMac. But instead of buying a new one or switching over to a classic PC-workstation, I decided to build my own custom PowerMac G3 Blue&White Hackintosh with next level monster-hardware.

The first thing I'm going to replace is Intel's boxed fan. If the computer is idling around the fan really wont make so much noise. But as soon when you start 'using' the computer it reminds me of a bee.

Another thing but not so important is to upgrade to a 4K-monitor, but currently my 20"-monitor does his job very well.

You can also check out my blog-post with some additional thoughts my experience with the B&W-Case-mod and some additional pictures.
