G4 Case Converted to Mactel

22 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Today and yesterday i modded a g4 case to fit my Asrock P4Dual-915GL board, almost every thing worked except my cdrom wont fit because it hits the second ram stick when closed so i either need to find a shorter cd rom drive(which is not likely because the one i have is really short already) or trade my two 512mb sticks for one 1gb stick therefor not having a second stick in will allow the cd drive to fit, and i have to rewire the power button, restart button, and the power LED but other than that all went smooth and looks great.

 

I will post pics soon

I got an empty G4 case to do the same thing.

Does the case door shut properly when there is only one memory stick installed?

Do you think a laptop CD/DVD drive might be a useful alternative?

I thought about using an external USB DVD drive, but it kinda defeats the purpose a bit.

 

Cheers,
