Power Mac G5

7 posts in this topic

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!
