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.

Y'all should pay attention to this thread. From what I've seen elsewhere he is doing a great job.

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!

hi i am starting to build a g5 mod and collect information where I can buy things, or how I can make these things by myself
is the back panel homemade or purchased, it looks very good and is exactly what I want. can you tell me where you buy it , or the dimensions of the back panel. or in the best case a picture to print a template
sorry if something written incorrectly english is not my native language

hey buddy. welcome.

actually a brave project if its your first.

I believe Scatology has a butt load of handmade parts,
I bet if you ask nice he'll share the Solidworks file.

this is another G5 mod - equally as good as Scatology's of course
