What did you do with the power switch and how did you install Lion? Great job with the case btw :)


With the power switch, I ended up using an old switch from computer and putting it into my case, then I learned a few users on here actually make cables for this exact front panel input/output switch.(You can switch it on with the button on the front of the case) You can personally contact them, one user is BlackCH(UK-based) and the other is AlohaCab (US). They're roughly $35 and well worth saving yourself the trouble of making one yourself.

Not sure about AlohaCab's cable but make absolutely sure whether or not you have a firewire connection on your motherboard otherwise it won't work unless you ask for a jumper cable that he'll provide if you buy from BlackCH!


As far as installation, you either need a friend with a mac
A retail snowleopard Disc, it was a while back but I believe I used kakewalk to install snow leopard on a disc
then download/purchase OSX Lion and put it onto a usb drive using ###### and disk utility.. after that it was all simple kext installation(######) since my parts all pretty much worked out of the box.

I really like your fan mechanism, but how did you secure it to the g5 case? And where did you get those L brackets?


You can find the L-braces at Home Depot, 4 for $2 I think.
These are them, though I believe they are 3/4 in version not the 1 inch version as in this link which will NOT work for the fans

If you look around home depot near the wood/where they store aluminum, they have those long screws I think #8-32(about a foot long) so I used those to slide through these braces and I drilled two holes down into the bottom of the case(no one will see it) and used four machine nuts to tighten it(One inside the case, one outside, and spin in opposing directions). Also ull need machine nuts to make sure those braces stay put..
