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 smile.png, instantly got on my e-mail and started communication with seller, i was keeping my savings for situations like this biggrin.png
 
Aaand in less than 36hours,  here it is, DHL knocked on my door, yeeeeeeeeei smile.png

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 smile.png

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.

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 biggrin.png

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  biggrin.png  )

gNmEdbzl.jpgTU8aY0Rl.jpgxDRetoPl.jpg

 

Remember that case from the beginning, when i took DDC apart to clean it off, well, after closer look i saw that mbo tray is removable, so my current case won't be sacrificed as much as it needed to be.

Also original holes and mount will be used to fix in place some of components like psu and radiator

 

QmYoCWfl.jpgct3dvSTl.jpgeJNCeZsl.jpg

 

I'll put diy mounting system in here, so i won't have problems later to dismantle something if needed.

Here we go, some minor updates.
 
Today i had in plan only to mount some heatsinks on VGA card.
 
1WR1rBgl.jpg
 
But DHL courier surprised me with Dremel tool, so i had to test it out :)
 
First thing to do was: cutting out excess material from optics cover, so i can fit it in and connect to the rest of the case with epoxy. 
 
sHrz2wyl.jpg
 
It isn't perfect cut, but enough for epoxy treatment. Piece is finished and ready for stage 2.
 
3uXPJokl.jpgFJsRTv2l.jpgovRyWm8l.jpg
 
MBO tray shared very same destiny as optics cover. I had to cut out excess material for fitting it inside the case.
 
vj2YRRtl.jpgTVD3qaEl.jpggFk0yF0l.jpg
 
After all, i've decided to use Chieftec's side panel, and put it to good use in this mod.
 
 
phjmrxAl.jpgLJrXCFOl.jpg 
 
dfWH8Awl.jpgOo8LQZSl.jpgnRno7q2l.jpg
 
 
Radiator mount is finished, i need to cut out middle part and some holes to hold everything in place.
 
Next to do: Cutting out back side for new IO panel.
 
Stay tuned ! :)

Radiator holder is finished :) I still need to take the old paint off and prepare it for paintjob + drill holes for radiator mount + glue some L holders with epoxy.

So.. :) I've decided to do some minor work today to put this tool to good use.
 
Radiator panel holders have been cutted out from old psu case:

Few pictures of planned fixation to the panel:
 
yLKO4dSl.jpgBWRyMOLl.jpgDnnwGEWl.jpg
 
I also cutted out honeycomb mesh to use it in this project, i still don't know where this will be placed, and how; but i'am considering placing it somewhere near the pump, or to use it at top radiator panel mounting points.
 
qEKzijFl.jpggKioVPyl.jpg

Another day, another worklog update :) I was cutting out IO bracket from Chieftec ( pain in the ass #1 ) and a backplate hole for IO bracket on Powermac's case ( pain in the ass #2 )
 
Iet the pictures talk for themselves:

Hi, yeah, i'am currently posting at other forums much more than here, you can check it on this one:

http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/312122-case-mod-powertosh-i5-powermac-g5-watercooled-hackintosh/


After i finally got OS X Yosemite working on my hw, gpu decided to die, so i'am waiting for gtx 980 and i5 K cpu. I 'll continue work with this Hackintosh in a week or so, and i hope that it will be finished by the end of May.

I will for sure :), my XFX 7850 is gone ( too much voltage on GPU :D 1250MHz @ 1.315V, VRM section got fried ) and i need to pick up GTX 980 / i5 4690k from my local store in hour or so, and then i can do some work with bechmarks and osx tweaking :)

Small update / tease :)


GTX 980 Phantom

DrUKAAMh.jpg

I5 4690K

BhX0R33h.jpg

GPU is already installed for benching / testing on air :)

feA6SIdh.jpg


Currently i had GTX 760 Phantom from my mate who borrowed it to me, since HD7850 died because of VRM shorting ( too much vgpu / +50% power limit is bad for cheap vrm :D  ), and considering the fact that they advertise Phantom line as colder / quieter solution is absolute lie, they get hot as hell and noisy also, but i don't know, noise tolerance varies from person to person... :(  So.. i can't wait for vrm watercooling parts, so i can put this Maxwell beast under H20 and do some proper bios tweaking / overclocking :)

Today I've got sponsorship packet from Icemodz ( http://www.icemodz.com ).

Sleeving color scheme for 24/8/6 pin cables

Planned sata and molex color scheme
 
Sata: 3-1-1 ( white-black-white )
 
Molex: 2-1-1 ( white-black-white )

Yesterday i got some presents again, this time from DIYINHK.com.
 
I've ordered PWM Control 18W PCB for DDC pump ( http://www.diyinhk.com/shop/ddc-pump/41-laing-ddc-pump-18w-repair-pcb-wled-smd-soldered-mcp355.html ) because there is no need for the pump to run on max rpm 0/24, and i wanted to use benefits of Sabertooth 4-pin headers and ASUS's Thermal radar control. 
 
So, here it is:
 
Upgrade PCB kit with blue LEDs.
 
f4kpAw7l.jpg?1 
 
jd1N4ADl.jpg
 
JJFjBiHl.jpg
 
 
System was flushed out and disassembled and pump is ready for her upgrade :)
 
2rh8SF1l.jpg
 
7LicXRul.jpg?1
 
 
New PCB is slightly smaller than original one
 
KyxGHihl.jpg?1
 
 
Old PCB dissasembled
 
ByDWSIbl.jpg?1
 
 
Stator coil 
 
tTQ1tGNl.jpg?1
 
 
Old VS New PCB
 
fEnwIEel.jpg?1
 
qnJW34kl.jpg?1
 
We can clearly see how far technology went in just 10 years, that single IC and a few diodes on new PCB are replacing bunch of ICs and semiconductors from the old PCB.
 
Also new PCB is made out of 4 layers, vs 2 layer on old one. This is a huge benefit in form of power delivery to the coils itself and it is more prone to pcb burnout due copper current limitation old boards had ( copper lines on the board were too small and too resistant, aka they were limiting max current that can flow into the coils, and when users placed those pumps into restrictive loops, stator demanded more and more current to maintain desired RPMs )
 
In that upgrade kit i've also received 4 blue LEDs and 2 SMD resistors, but as i don't own transparent top + i hate blue LEDs inside of a computer ( they are too much redneck-ish  :D ) i won't use them.
 
3m5FwTWl.jpg
 
R2 and R3 are locations for those 2 resistors, and D1,D2,D3 & D4 are places where you should solder LEDs if you wish. 
 
FgXy3bel.jpg
 
 
PCB contacts treated with solder for easier soldering of stator and power / control wires.
 
a0QypHrl.jpg
 
IMPnzZXl.jpg
 
 
Stator pulled out from pump's casing, i did this for easier wire preparation.
 
OPmXLxvl.jpg
 
 
Total of 6 coils with 2 wires, so i had to cut 6 exact wire pairs.
 
64t1vfOl.jpg
 
 
Preparation is the key of everything ( 85% preparation + 15% work = 100% of wanted result at the end ), so i stripped wire ends and treated them with tin.
 
5ttq4vLl.jpg
 
 
Extension wires connected with the stator wires.
 
eztJ4Rcl.jpg
 
8LgxgG3l.jpg
 
mnOPIqpl.jpg
 
Those tiny white blobs on wire junctions are small amounts of nail polish, i used it to isolate bare connections from shorting together once the stator is placed inside of his casing and connected with PCB.
 
* Unfortunately i was really excited to test out the pump, so i forgot to take pictures of wires soldered on pcb, but i will take them later before final steps and project completition. *
 
Cables are sleeved and connected, white one is for RPM signal and PWM control that is connecting to the MBO 4-pin header, and inside the black one are 12+ and GND wires that are connected to the PSU.

cNneBEPl.jpg
 
 
 
 
So... you guys are probably asking yourself why on earth would someone do all this job if he had perfectly ok and 100% working device  ? 
 
Well, i like to do diy stuff and enhance electronic devices whenever i can, someone is playing soccer, someone is riding his bike, and to me this is my satisfaction and a way of relaxation :)
 
Ok ok, but if we put that aside, are there really benefits of this PCB ?
 
YES ! :) :)
 
Pump is now under Sabertooth's control
 
Ibji1eEl.jpg
 
Normally pump is working @ 850RPM
 
5VQGMLol.jpg
 
I've conected 4-pin header that is controling pump's RPMs with CPU thermal sensor, so whenever CPUs temp rises a bit, pump will also speed up, to keep more of the water flowing thru cpu block.
 
5Ptw6bel.jpg
 
Temp difference between 850 and 3900 RPM is cca 2 degrees of Celsius in idle and 4 in full load, BUT noise difference between min and max RPMs  :) that is hell of a improvement and it was worth of extra 20 GBP + 2 hours of "work" ( I say "work" because i do this for fun :3 )

So, I've finally catched some spare time and i can continue working on this case.
 
I/O bracket fixed in place with epoxy resin.
 
RcvoLvvl.jpg
 
hn7ieG6l.jpg
 
 
Original fan holes section removed.
 
ppbwv1ol.jpg
 
 
I decided to use original CPU cover plate because i can easily drill thru it, also i will drill holes around G5 logo, so letters will remain unpainted / original.
 
Lo32xoMl.jpg
 
Drill testing
 
wYSG82Ol.jpg
 
Okay, here we go :)
 
XcU0l13l.jpg
 
 
 
 
Steps remaining in this project:
 
* G5 plate drilling
* fixing imperfections on handmade cuts / drillouts / connections 
* psu cable sleeving 
* case sanding / primer coating / painting
 
ETA remaining: 2 weeks max. ( i hope :) )

Snippet for impatient ones :)

Edit:
 
Just got CLU few mins ago :)
 
ok7Ciphl.jpg

So, morning was perfect for de-lid process :) 
 
Instead of razor blade method or vice and hammer method i used new method, my own :D 
 
Procedure is the same as razor blade method procedure, but instead of razor blade i used very thin plastic sheet i had from usb drive package. This plastic is perfect for this kind of work, thin, sharp and smooth.

With this i got more event temps across all cores 
 
qAptZ1Pl.jpg
 
 
Before de-lid, min / max core difference was 14 degrees Celsisus. 
 
 
Note: Currently CPU is cooled with box cooler / i did quick and poor Phobya Nano grease application, so we won't see the real results before i mount watercooling loop and put everything in case. But as far i'am satisfied with lower ΔT across all cores :)

    • By tonyx86
      This guide is a work in progress and will be updated as I refine the installation.
       
      Background
      This is my first "modern" hack supporting UEFI and my first hack using Clover "on-the-fly" patches.  My previous hacks (Laptop: Thinkpad T61 / Nvidia NVS 140m, Laptop: Dell Latitude E6410 / Nvidia G3100m, Desktop: Gigabyte G31 / GeForce 9600, Desktop: Biostar TH55HD / Sapphire Pulse RX580) are all perfectly running Catalina and I patched them all "manually" - all DSDT patches applied with MaciSL with virtually no Clover on-the-fly patching and all booted Legacy Clover.  This UEFI hack was MUCH easier and took about 20 hours vs. a combined hundreds of hours for the old hacks.  I wanted a hack that was a little more future proof and I think this is it.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I am enjoying it.  It is a perfect MacMini8,1.
       
      My system specs
      HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini (I7-8700T / UHD 630 / Q370 Chipset / 32GB DDR4 RAM) 3 x DP Ports (connected to monitors using DP -> DVI adapters) 6 x USB 3.1 1 x USB Type-C 3.1 2 x NVMe SSD (M.2 PCIe x4 2280/2230 combo ports) 1 x SATA6 SSD 1 x Intel Ethernet RJ-45 Conexant CX20632 Audio Codec SMBIOS MacModel MacMini 8,1 Unsupported M.2 PCIe x1 2230 Intel Wi-Fi (currently disabled in BIOS).  I may replace this with Brcm, but am using only Ethernet (IntelMausi) for now.  
      Installation Steps: To be provided
      See attached EFI and /L/E kexts in EliteDesk.zip archive See installation methodology here See references here  
      What is not working
      Wi-Fi / Bluetooth (intentional since I have not yet replaced my Intel card).  
      What is not tested
      USB c 3.1 port Microphone port  
      What is working
      Everything not mentioned above Sleep / Wake Multiple displays with IGPU graphics acceleration, hot pluggable display ports and DP->DVI adapters USB 3.1 ports Audio (internal speaker and headphone jack) Ethernet Auto-sensing headphone jack automatically switches to internal speaker when headphones removed  
      Known Issues and their solutions
      (Reported this as a possible Clover issue - no solution yet) Clover boot loader may default to Recovery volume after a normal shutdown.  Work-around is to select your normal macOS volume.  This may only happen when Clover is configured to boot LastBootedVolume and may be "fixable" by explicitly setting a boot volume (haven't tested this). (Watching this - not sure it's a problem) At least one display blanks (sleeps) when plugging / unplugging USB device (observed in front USB 3.1 ports).  Display wakes immediately on keyboard and mouse activity, so this is a minor issue but may be indicative of another issue. (No solution yet - work-around is to use Firefox) Safari has problems loading insanelymac web pages after sleep / wake.  Work-around: use Firefox or reboot.  I have seen reports in forums where Safari issues are experienced after sleep / wake on a real Mac.  Not sure if the problems are related.  I suspect that it might be related to streaming video on InsanelyMac pages (since I haven't observed the issue on "static" pages).
      Also observed video problem in AppStore after sleep/wake.  Console: VideoDecodersUnavailable  (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) Display does not fully wake after resuming from sleep (needs an extra mouse or keyboard stimulus to fully wake).  Solution is to change boot arg darkwake=0 to darkwake=2.  Other values of darkwake may work as well, but this is the first I tried and it worked. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) -disablegfxfirmware boot arg is not required with WEG.  I inadvertently left this boot arg after I encountered an endless gfx firmware update boot loop while working on my FB patching.  This boot arg is no longer necessary after completing FB patching with WEG. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive): Sometimes, CMOS time is lost on shutdown or restart.  Solution is to enable Clover's Apple RTC fix in config.plist. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) headphone jack doesn't work.  Solution is to change HDEF layout-id to 28. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) System freezes on wake from sleep because of a kernel panic related to hda-gfx (my system does not have HDMI and my DP->DVI adapters do not drive monitor speakers).  Solution is to add No-hda-gfx property to HDEF as described here.  This property is recognized as a Lilu flag and prevents loading hda-gfx. (Solved and included in the attached EliteDesk.zip archive) Device (PMCR) is not defined.  Solution is a SSDT that "injects" the missing device. (Solved and included in the attached archive) eficheck is loaded (not sure why this is bad, but may be a privacy issue - see here). Solution is to add updated EFICheckDisabler kext that include Q370 chipset.  See here.
