#69548 PowerMac G5 case mods: reusing the old psu case...

Posted m.oreilly on 19 January 2020 - 01:50 AM

After deciding that I would redo the MacPro case that I had previously posted about, I decided to go for the G5 as the case for an X99/Xeon system that I am piecing together over the next few months. I used the Mountain Mods rear panel and mobo tray combo to get the G5 ready to accept an mATX. I wanted to avoid the wiring hell that I had going on with the Pro case, so I decided to reuse the old PowerMac PSU case, gut it, and strip down a Corsair SFX 600. The guts of the Corsair, placed on standoffs epoxied to the floor of the old case PSU, left plenty of room to hide excess cable while also offering a better overall access to devices in need of power.

checking for placement. I may have to go with individually wrapped wire as I will need a bit more length on some.

I had some cutting to do re the lid of the PSU. I think I can get away with the top shelf remaining stock as it has wider openings...

OK, top shelf back on. Time to check how it mates with the G5 innards...
I had to pull one of the 80mm fans to get the dingus in...

And here we see the classic fitment, IEC meets the butt of the G5...

Posted m.oreilly on 18 January 2020 - 06:06 PM

I actually tried my hand at cable management this time...

#69545 MacPro case mod

Posted m.oreilly on 04 January 2020 - 11:15 PM

Still sorting things out (reused WC parts from previous builds), but couldn't wait to fire it up when the Apple Cinema Display arrived. I didn't stick to the "leave the case as pristine as possible, but am enjoying a water cooled Hackintosh in an old cheese-grater case. I used the Airplex self contained rad, which has its own rez and pump built in. to take care of the back of the case, I used 'thelaserhive' Pro mATX kit (thank you Mr. Chugg!), and rewired the front input area to salvage the power button and light, and adding USB 3 input support. I'll fiddle with the tubing as ideas come in, but for now I am enjoying the mac experience with this most beautiful Cinema Display...

#69533 Thermaltake Core P90

Posted m.oreilly on 24 January 2019 - 03:41 AM

After dealing with leaks on the old bird I decided to put the contents into an 'open' case. A Vega GPU had to replace the homemade GOP 7970 because of the new BenQ sw320 monitor, and a memory upgrade to 16 gigs because it was really cheap...pics to follow...

GENERATIONS !!1! <3 Still putting in work in gaming here, miss all y'all. I distinctly remember Dave/Nvy making fun of me for getting into '4Chan money' AKA Bitcoin back in 2011 lol. If anyone has comms with Brewin, it'd be awesome to know if he and his family are ok from that tornado a few years ago.

#68335 I think i've found audio nirvana

Posted m.oreilly on 12 August 2013 - 02:08 AM

after re damping the klipsch,and enjoying them, they are just too big for my present desktop location, so i re damped my home made...they now sound awesome, so despite a little increase in volume to make up for the less than 94db response of the towers, i have a very percussive set of home made that are quite nice...
yes, i went against my personal ban of using fiberglass, but it is the perfect damping material for audio diy, and for a decent price. all the other options seem like snake oil/hit and miss...
