Default Scatology's PowerMac G5 mod.

Hi guys! :wave:


So yah... I like Apple and I'm on macs since a year and a half BUT I'm not an apple fanboy... I just like some of their products. I'm really open-minded and I appreciate everything. I've always been addict to computers hardware since 12-13 years and I miss it since I "swiched" to macs. I always LOVE the G5/Mac pro cases so here I am with a cool project!

I grabbed a Powermac G5 case. I'll make a mATX conversion. :P It will be for a NAS setup. The NAS will be just for file sharing. The theme will be black/gray/silver.


The config:

-AMD sempron 145
-Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3 REV 5.0
-Corsair XMS3 2GB
-Corsair CX430m
-May be 2x2TB WD RED hard drive



Pictures.

I must say, beautiful photos. Really awesome. =D Like the color scheme. Although, not much on Apple myself. XD Wish you the best on the build and looking forward to updates.

Thansk all! Like lowfat meant, I am avanced in the project! So here's more!






































































































































I also made a custom cable for the front power button and the led. I didn't wired the USB and the FW because I'll not use it.

Looking great! And another Solidworks user!

Where did you get your plate cut for the rear of the case?

Also, great pics!
