  1. This was the perfect solution for those who didn’t like standard cases, but still liked fancy ones, but then the new Mac Pro came out. This time it wasn’t in a usual rectangular desktop case but in a completely new form factor. Many users criticized Apple for its switch to a “closed platform”, as it was mostly non-upgradable and definitely strange. But no-one can argue about the incredible ability of Apple’s engineers to put two powerful GPUs and an Intel XEON processor with ECC RAM DIMMs, yet keeping the form factor ultra-compact. Only 25.1cm tall, a diameter of just 16cm and the best possible use of its shape to achieve an optimal airflow to get the best results. In terms of temperature, using just one fan, it’s pretty cool - literally! Until a month ago, building a PC with this new cylinder concept was possible only for the bravest of modders, determined enough that they would customise their cylindrical trash cans with heavy modding, bending,and cutting, to fit a standard PC Mini ITX mobo and all the other usual PC components. Now it’s time for everyone to get their cylinder, [hopefully for a hackintosh], case. The Dune Case is here: a Mac Pro case that fits a Mini ITX motherboard. It’s doing well on Kickstarter with many backers for this project. We at InsanelyMac are super interested to see how well it can support standard PC hardware, handle temperature, and how strong and tough it’s built. The Dune Case is not made with the usual weak material found in most cases (couple of painted metal sheets), but a solid piece of thick aluminium that hides all the sections made for the motherboard, the PSU and a large gaming GPU. It even has routes for cable management, a custom made PCI-Express riser card to reroute the GPU from the mobo to a place in the case where it (amazingly) fits. There’s also a PCB for the front panel with various connectors to attach to USB 3, Ethernet, 2x 3.5mm audio connectors (front speakers+mic), dual DisplayPort or dual HDMI and power. The original principal behind Apple’s Mac Pro design is intact: the case is splitting the airflow coming from below to reach the components without dead points. The makers made many tests to ensure optimal temperature with the stock CPU cooler, though it could probably be replaced with a low profile one, but likely not a liquid one. It supports up to two 2.5 HDDs or SSDs and only Mini-ITX components, to be clear, even the GPU must be Mini ITX, but today there are many powerful components that can be used to make it a powerful machine that could challenge the genuine Mac Pro, such as the latest Skylake processors and a Mini-ITX GeForce GTX 970. We want to underline that even if it’s without any doubt the closest thing to a Mac Pro, it’s clearly not like it. In fact there is no way to install another GPU even if there are some Mini-ITX XEON mobos as the components, even if well placed, probably couldn't fit the original’s specific design, and even if the video cards were small they're still a little bigger than the original. But we have to say that the Dune Case is something fresh for the PC case market, and we want to wish the best for their Kickstarter campaign. So go check it out and you could be lucky enough to get it cheaper. You don’t want to run out of time! We leave you with some cool pictures exclusively shared with us for you to enjoy.

  3. So, I decided to finally put my hands on Powermac G5 case, and build my dream computer / cooling system. For years i was trying to find used case on our local cragilist-a-like website, and pretty much there was no super deals. And finally ! Few days ago, there it was, one ad got my attention, Powermac 7.3, with LCS, non functional ( LCS drained out all over the PPCs and PSU ), i was happy as hell , instantly got on my e-mail and started communication with seller, i was keeping my savings for situations like this Aaand in less than 36hours, here it is, DHL knocked on my door, yeeeeeeeeei LCS was of course malfunctioned, but no worries my friends! Pump is still functional... Great deal, considering only pump would cost me much more than i paid for delivery + item. So here it is, sweet little DDC guy As i was talking with seller about our deal, i worked on 3d sketch for my project in the same time, and here it is. Front Back Renders My dream is to build as quiet as possible, yet well cooled and re-usable case / cooling system that will fit to any motherboard / gpu / cpu configuration in future. So, what are these compartments inside of it ? Well, i had in mind to use only 3 fans to cool whole pc, and to achieve maximum airflow / cooling effect without any additional fans except these on water radiator. So in this build i will go with fanless PSU, 3 x 120 NoiseBlocker Bionic eLoop fans on pwm and i will try to make thermal zones, so fans can speed up individually if there is a problem with temperature arise in one of the compartments without need to speed up another 2 fans. Apple Powermac case is perfect for build like this, as his perforated front and back side are ideal for vertical radiator placement and it will enable me to do what i want. Also i think that build quality is well known, this thing is built like a tank * reserved * ----------------------------------------- HW * Other parts are still unknown * RAM: Avexir Core A Type PSU: Silverstone Nightjar 520 ----------------------------------------- LCS HW Laing DDC-VC pump Watercool HK CPU Rev. 3.0 LC Watercool HEATKILLER® GPU-X3 EK-CoolStream PE 360 3 * 120 mm radiator ( 19FPI double fin ) Noiseblocker NB-eLoop B12-PS Bionic loop EK-XTOP DDC - Acetal (Original CSQ) Alphacool tubing AlphaTube black Monsoon 13/10mm (ID 3/8" OD 1/2") white fittings IceModz cable managment - white, black and grey sleeve combination ----------------------------------------- I decided to pull out all things from it, and leave the rest for tomorrow, but Battlefield 4 servers were swarmed with children that day, so i decided to take a closer look on LCS pump, and to see if that machinery is still working. Ewwwww I had to clean that {censored} out What the heck? What kind of Laing pump is this ? Well, it is DDC-VC, model with volumetric compensator {censored} that got stuck inside pump, some debris, rust and who know what... I actually found something that was similar to pineapple chunks ( i don't want to know what that is xD ) Case is 90% cleaned out, I'am waiting for my Dremel tool to arrive to continue work on it ( old one wasn't in use for 6 years, and decided to die when i powered it on to do some cut-outs on that case ) And for the end of that night, random workplace pic, i was 50hours awake because of some other projects / work, and that was all for this night. Time to sleep Current status: * Waiting for Dremel tool delivery * Waiting for some cash to buy remaining LCS parts / HW parts * Waiting for sponsors to arrange parts sponsorships ( Don't worry, i have this project 100% covered by myself, but sponsorships are always welcome ) P.S. Sorry for grammar mistakes, English isn't my native language

    Newbie question...

    Hi there, Just joined the forum and loving the posts. So many different ideas.... Would anyone help with my query: Got a Power mac G5 with all the insides and would like to do a G5 case mod with it - gut it all out and fit with up-to-date motherboard, CPU, etc. Looks not important, functionality and price are. The problem is, as mentioned before, I am a complete newbie. Where do I start? Thanks in advance.

If someone of you know a good tutorial so please post it here. I got a Apple Power Mac G5 which works but the case is only bent. So I search a way to fix it again.
  13. Is there any plans for BitFenix to make a micro ATX version of there Prodigy mini ITX case http://www.bitfenix.com/global/en/products/chassis/prodigy/ Or is any motherboard maker planing on a 32GB ram version of a mini ITX board or a bios update that would allow two 16gb DDR3 sticks to work. Or any micro ATX board that would fit with some mod din to this case and run osx?

    [SELL] Five (5) G5 cases and parts

    I have for sale: 5 Power Mac G5 cases of varying quality. I will post pictures of all of them tomorrow. Some have parts, some are completely empty. All of them have the door. They are a little roughed up, scratches and scores on the casings. A couple dings and dents, here and there. You will understand once I get the photos up. I was thinking about USD $150, including shipping (more if you want the parts and such; those cost extra to ship as they weigh more), but I am willing to negotiate or trade. I will clean them up, scrub them down, make them sparkle again, and attempt to buff out any huge scratches or dents. Please let me know if you are interested so I can begin preparations for shipping and packaging, etc.
  16. Since the outer "C" shell of my my G5 enclosure was in bad shape (eBay seller wasn't entirely honest), I hired a friend of InsanelyMac's own AlohaCab to re-anodize and bead blast it to give it a new, clean look. Unfortunately, the acids he's using in the process will damage the grey Apple logo on that side. Because of that, I just asked him to remove any evidence that it was there in the hope that I could later re-create that logo. I still have the logo on the removable side panel, so I'm thinking I can use that as a template for size/positioning when getting a new logo on the other side, but I'm not sure where I should look for someone that can provide this service to me. Does anyone here have any ideas where I should look in order to get a quality, perfect/near perfect (looks original when standing a couple feet away) logo applied to my enclosure? I've done as much as I possibly can by myself, but the detailed cosmetic work requires a lot of equipment and know-how that just aren't within my reach as a garage hobbyist. I've basically completed my G5 mod at this point, getting a new logo applied to that side would basically be the icing on the cake for me in this project.
  17. Hey, i currently have an iMac and im planning on building a Hackintosh. I need it to be as silent as the iMac and also if the case has any LED lights or such i need the case to have a 'switch off' feature as it is very important to me (leaving it on and going to sleep). I really liked the Corsair 600T White and was planning on buying it, but then i saw a post saying that its loud. I dont want the case to be too plain nor too fancy ; somewhere in between. So do you have any suggestions?
  18. Vendo case di un Mac Pro. Il case è in buone condizioni generali (qualche graffio qua e la, a volte esaltato dal flash nelle foto), l'unica pecca è che il piedistallo posteriore è leggermente schiacciato (a destra guardando da dietro) e nella parte posteriore il case si è leggermente aperto, questa foto dovrebbe farvi capire le condizioni ---> https://picasaweb.go...feat=directlink Il case viene venduto con tutti e solo i componenti che vedete in foto: manca la scheda frontale, per usb, audio e firewire, ma è presente il pulsante di accensione con il suo connettore. VENDUTO Priorità a chi ritira a mano. Tutte le foto Francesco.
