Hello guys, I just got a Power Mac G5 complete desktop and I would love to tear it down and install all new hardware and make the best hackintosh I could possibly create.

I removed all the components and decided to keep the drive bay, bluetooth and wifi wires (maybe I'll toss them) and screws (why not!?)

 

The only thing this case is missing is the side panel, its gone and was gone from when I found it, as well as the G5 heat sink cover (damnit!)

 

Does anyone know where I could get a replacement cover or would I have to design and fabricate a cover from scratch? Any help is appreciated of course and I had no idea where to post this question considering all the main forums didn't quiet fit so I apologize in advanced.

Well... Their reviews ain't that great (the few that I found), so personally I wouldn't do it.
There is one on eBay for $34, object location is Italy and $30 for postage... You could buy a whole new G5 case for $50 instead, lol.

Yep, crossed my mind and if anything goes wrong I have a backup. Maybe I just gotta wait and get the tools I need to make my own door with an acrylic window. Its gonna be some time though now. I just wanted to get the main parts in order (including PC components.) I'm going to go with the Customac Pro build from the 2017 Jan list. Any suggestions for the best components with little problems for install?

I have the original 1 piece heatsink cover (with 2 G5 Logos) if you want it and am located in Arizona. I just built my watercooled Ryzen hackintosh in a G5 case (**SHAMELESS PLUG** that you can check out here: http://www.insanelym...modded-g5-case/

)

 

I am located in Surprise, Az so really only about 3.5 hours from you if you're interested. I have a whole extra G5 case too but unfortunately that is going to be used for another project. I know this post is a little older but if you still need it I have it.

Your best bet would be EBay for a whole case complete.  That's what I did, have plenty of spare parts in case you need them.
