Hi guys!
I recently bought a PowerMac G5, it's really a beautiful case!
This is how it looks today:

20130520 133720 LLS


20130520 133614 LLS


My plan is to paint it, most likely the same colour, now there are a few scratches that really irritate me..


The power supply will go in the bottom, where the original one was


On components I'm not sure yet, but most likely a mATX motherboard so i can keep the top shelf free for SSD's, i'm not intrested in 3 or 4-way SLI/crossfire anyway. It will definitely be a gaming rig, maybe a even dualboot


I will upgrade it later on to a custom water loop but I'm going to start with an all in one set just for the CPU


One thing that i really hate about the mods I've seen so far, is the cable management

well it's hard to call it that with cables hanging loose everywhere.. I hope i can do a better job with the idea's i have



It won't be the fastest mod out there, still studying and finals are coming, so be patient but it will be worth it! :D

ARGH. I really wanted to do something like this. Well, I just wanted to put my components in the G5 case... It really does look nice.

Anyways... If you could make it look good, I'd say go with a side window after you get the cables neatly managed and a full water loop in there. I think that would look pretty nifty. 

I also don't think you should paint it... possibly powdercoat it if the scratches are absolutely unbearable. 

I'm really looking forward to how this will come out.

I don't think i'm going to put a window in it, i had to place it on the ground yesterday because it was so damn heavy, when i don't see it a window is pretty pointless..


I'm a bit concerned about the PSU, i hope it will fit on the bottom, otherwise all my plans were for nothing..
