  1. First G5 case mod... from scratch.

    Thanks for the details ! With the "radiator", I think there is a misunderstanding : I don't know exactly how your qualify this in english, but the copper and aluminum heat pipe that comes with a ventilator to cool the CPU is referred as a "radiateur" in french, even a "ventirad" (because it's a ventilator type) So I am aiming at an air cooling system, no worries. But because I don't know the total lenght of the moutain mod+MB+CPU+the cooler, I was wondering if it could be too "tall" (considering it's in horizontal position) to prevent the side panel to close… As an example, I think this is an image of your first mod (which is one of my references by the way, I love what you did with the HDD bays !) : I can't exactly see if the sidepanel can be put back in place to close the case or not…
  2. Hello there ! First of all, in the past I saw the task of modding a G5 case (a case that I really love since it has been unveiled) being really too hard or not worth the time, but looking at your projects really fired me up. So, before starting to unmount its insides, I have a few questions for you. -I am aiming at a i5 3570K "naturally", but I have concerns about the processor's cooler... I saw on certain mods (with the Mountain Mod MB stand) that the radiator was really close to the width of the case, maybe preventing it from closing... should I pass on certain CPU cooler because of their lenght or not ? (I was thinking about the Cooler Master 212 evo) -Does the PSU's (modular, of course) measurements have a real impact too ? (I will mount it at the top rear, it seems easier) This is the first computer I build up, so I don't really know if these have a standard size... (there, aiming for a Antec HCG 520 or 620W) -And finally, is the dremel the best tool for cutting the rear panel ? It's pretty basic stuff, and I apologize for that, but these are things I need to know before making the leap. And if there is more I should really know about this mod before I begin, don't hesitate to tell me ! Thanks for your time.
  3. Introduce yourself

    Hi guys ! I am a sound engineer and videogames' sound design student from France, currently building a work/gaming computer. (the most powerfull one I have right now is my solid Macbook Pro early 2008). I'm reading the forums since a while now, and now that I have a PowerMac G5 next to me, I hope to fit a nice setup in there. So I'll head first to the modding section. Hope i'll enjoy my stay !
