G5 Conversion First attempt

Recommended Posts

Here I am showcasing my Powermac G5 conversion. This is a first attempt using a beat up G5 case that a friend gave me.


My hardware;

I5 2500K 4.2GHz

Gigabyte Z68XP-UD4

Corsair H40 CPU Cooler

16GB Komputerbay 2000MHz @ 1866MHz

CiT 500W PSU

Powermac G5 Case

Lian Li ATX Tray




ATI HD5770 1GB


This is running dual boot Windows 7 Ultimate and Lion 10.7.4 everything working apart from random CMOS reset under sleep and no HDMI audio unroll I perfect my DSDT skills.


Currently waiting on a front panel I/O connector from BlackCH to finish it off.


No DSDT or SSDT in use at the moment.


Any questions?


Job (almost) done!

Now running mountain lion with BlackCH front panel connector installed.


I have upgraded the graphics card to a GT640 2GB, installed a custom DSDT, SSDT etc.


Sleep now works along with DVD player etc.
