Power Mac G5

Recommended Posts

I already search the whole google but i dont found a good newbie tutorial how to completely disassemble a PowerMac G5 or Mac Pro case. :wallbash:

If someone of you know a good tutorial so please post it here. :whistle:

I got a Apple Power Mac G5 which works but the case is only bent. :(

So I search a way to fix it again.

 

:thanks_speechbubble:

If you go to the sub forum mods and overclocking you'll find what people have done to get their G5 in the condition they wanted to. Not everyone has the same requirements or desires so that is a great place to look for ideas as well. If you are just looking to take everything (and I mean everything) out, look here and here.

 

hope that helps!

hummmm... perhaps after you have completely taken it apart down to its individual components, you can bend that back using your weight? I have had success bending thick aluminum before just by using my own strength, or amplifying it with a lever or gravity. I think the best thing that you can do for starters, is to tear it completely apart and make sure there isn't structural damage (like a screw that has popped thru a mount or something). That will also assist you in determining what, if any tools or methods you'll need to get the bottom piece back to where it should be.

 

and if all else fails, when its stripped down, take some pictures, post them here and ask for ideas!

      Hi guys,
      Today, I tried to switch the SMBIOS to the MBA5,2 from MBP9,2 to try the PowerNap.
      When I online, Apple Locked my iCloud password and I have to reset it.
      But, the thing is that a years ago, I start Hackintosh with 10.11.5 and use the MBA5,2 SMBIOS like from the tutorial by Jake Lo from OSXLatitude.
      I have to reset the password many times, almost after every minor/major update.
      But when I switch to the MBP9,2 like Herve, Everything went well, Apple seem to accept it.
      So, I thought maybe Apple have a list of SMBIOS model that shouldn't be fake and a list that contain fake-acceptable?
      I'm not sure about it because it may caused by the Fake serial number?
      Anyway, Have a good day!
