  1. MEDIA ³

    MEDIA ³ A G4 Cube Mod. I understand and respect the G4 Cube mods that countless other users have detailed online: from the installation of custom parts to create an aesthetically pleasing hackintosh - to the more simple, but equally rewarding process of gutting the Cube to make way for a Mini. Great. Now, let me briefly detail my situation and subsequently, my needs (er.. *wants) I have a shambolic media collection; one that is spread between a number of external hard drives of varied sizes and origin. What a mess. So, I consolidated and organized the files; trashed the impulse buys and held on to those cherished films and shows that I could not do without: This was hard. (All films/episodes are 720P/1080P with a smattering of Standard-Def, where High-Def was simply unavailable) Here is Hard Drive #1 Here is Hard Drive #2 What I want to do is mod my G4 Cube to house anywhere from 6-8 TB; essentially, make my G4 Cube a large external hard drive, the most ultimate and aesthetically pleasing media storage device. & I have no idea where to start... but I know: It must be done. Well, the Cube should have 4 bays, which I would fill, at present time, with 3x 2TB HDDs -How would I go about producing or finding a bare-bones 4-bay enclosure to fit in Cube? -How would I then go about cooling the whole shindig? -How does one consolidate the drives to be recognized as a single 6/8TB HDD via computer? -How do I configure this set-up to exit via a USB 2.0 connection -Is there a possibility, in the coming months, that I may be able to switch this set-up from USB to Thunderbolt?
