    PowerMac G5 Mod DONE

    Hello all, so as the title says, I just recently finished my first mod and its based on Apple PowerMac G5. As a past owner of various Alienware machines and current Apple fan, I wanted to build something quite powerful in Apple case, as none of currently available Apple products could achieve what I need. So I grabbed PowerMac G5 which was available and have started to think what with it. I found couple of really useful posts on the internet which gave me an idea how to proceed. I have used old ATX case as MB holder and back plate and overall it took me something around 40 hours to finish I think. Main usage is as gaming rig and home PC for everything. Current specs is as below: CPU: i5 4670k @4.2 + Cooler Master Hyper 212+ EVO‎ GPU: MSI R9 270X Hawk MB: MSI Z87 MPOWER SP RAM: 8GB Kingston 2400MHz SSD: 256GB + 128GB Crucial M4 PSU: 650W Cooler Master Regarding some benchmarks: 3DMark 2006: 28157 3DMark 11: 8534 Windows 8 experience index: 8.1|8.1|8.4|8.4|8.2 Mavericks 10.9.0 installed on smaller SSD, but not usable as I am unable to boot without safe mode. Some photos can be found here (I apologize for premod photos, they are mainly from internet, as I dont have any premod photos of the case ;-) Last image was a backup plan :-) http://imgur.com/a/1uyA0
