...for my son (8 years old) I build a super eMac for his room to play, iTunes, EyeTV and Internet...

 

So the pictures are speaking for their own, I think...

 

Hardware-List:

Intel i5-2,80GHz

Gigabyte H55m-UD2H

NVidia GTX460 1024MB-DDR5

Apple AirportExtreme mPCIe on mPCIe-to-PCIe

Elgato EyeTV USB (build-in)

2x4GB-DDR3

500GB-SATA2

LG DVD-RW

LCP 650W PowerSupply

MacOS-X 10.6.8 with Chameleon and User-DSDT -->> today updated to 10.7.1 with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] (Chimera), user-DSDT, AppleHDA-Rollback, Lynx-to-Mac RTL81xx-GBit-Lan-kext. everything works: FaceTime, AppStore, Bonjour, WLAN, Sleep (except automatic sleep, so disabled - but sleep with power button or menu/wake up by mouse or power button works)... great work from tonymac and the whole community!!

...works very fine and silent....

 

...edit for the connectors: HD-Audio (automatical switches between intern-audio/headphones and intern-micro/extern-micro), 3xusb2, 1xFireWire (the second is closed with a lego-cap), tv-antenna-in (instead of the modem-connector), gbit-lan and display port is closed by a lego-part... look here:

Did you add a new monitor, or connect the old screen directly to mobo?

...no, it´s a EIZO 16"-TFT-Display, glued into the front with epoxy resin adhesive, like all the other components... you can see on a picture, that the mainboard is screwed on a glued lego-construction... that works fine an can carry all the heavy weight of main board, grafix, cpu-cooling, etc...

 

(sorry, my english is not so good, normally I speak german or spanish)

Very nice, congratulations.

Quite more exotic than the eternal G5 / Mac Pro's ;)

 

...thank you all... but what was it, that Apple say: "it´s only allowed to install mac-os on apple-hardware!"

 

 

 

...so, the eMac was out of order, it´s only a repair that I did.....
