I was thinking about the Cube today and thought that it would make a great Hackintosh. I'd love to get an old one (in good shape), pull out the guts and replace it with an m-atx conroe or something (when that particular arrangement is available.)

Does anyone have any experience modding one? I've looked at cubeowner.com and a few other places but thought I'd see what ya'll had to say. :)

I had found a project, already some time ago, about a cube mod on mini-itx.com.

On cubeowner.com, this one is really great :

Get two. One, you dremel the life out of similar to this one here....

The second you stuff 1.5gb ram into, upgrade the CPU to at least a 1.2 G4, upgrade to a superdrive, and stuff a modded nVidia AGP 6200 from strangedogs.com (http://strangedogs.proboards40.com/) ..add a low decibel fan and you have a really really useable day to day machine with QE and CI. I love the irony that I can use nVidia in the cube :)

Part me from my cube? Cold dead fingers, etc....

Thats a replacement enclosure - Powerlogix make them - its bigger than the original to allow better airflow and cooling.
Available in White Black and clear. http://eshop.macsale...ube-Enclosures/

sandwer > Thank u for the link ! I didn't know this replacement enclosure.
I wanted to realize a mod with a cube too, but it's difficult to find a cube enclosure in France, even on ebay.
