Latest pictures, see the last post :
Here are the tools to be used to bend and cut the copper tubes which will be used to transport the cooling liquid from the G5 case to the Mac Pro case :
Here is the G5 door with the final version of the opening Apple logo without the plexi panel and the 3D Apple lighted logo (seven leds inside in total):
Here with the remaining piece of plexi panel used in previous tests. You can see the difference because of the reflection on the panel :
Just for the fun and by curiosity I attached the G5 opened door onto a G5 case, check the result!!
After selling my G4 MDD, I started my Hackintosh, based on the first made by aquamac.
Case: G5 with G4 opening door
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-965P-DQ6 , update : now is Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3P
CPU: Dual 2 Quad 6600
Graphics Card: 7900 GTO Mad Moxx PCI-E
Ram Memory: OCZ FLEX XLC 4GB (4 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM 800MHz (PC2 6400) OCZ2FX800C42GK 4-4-4-15 will be Water Cooled, update : are watercooled ;D
Still working on the case, I thought first to install the PSU at the top where the HDD's are (like inside the Mac Pro)
and the watercooling at the bottom : forum.macbidouille.com/index.php?act=module&module=gallery&cmd=si&img=3644
but the water container from Gotoh was too wide.
I kept the waterblock to make this one : forum.macbidouille.com/index.php?act=module&module=gallery&cmd=si&img=3624
which will be later used inside another G4 MDD with this compact pomp and radiator:
For the Hackintosh I will use the same as this one :
thermaltech.co.uk/shop/thermaltake-clw0103-aquabay-liquid-cooling-alarm-system-p-255.html with the waterblock from the cl-w0065 and the radiator from the set I got from Gotoh
To expand the space at the bottom of the case I lowered the bottom plate which will be support by two acrylic pannels covered by a piece of grey mesh and I used two "hands" from a G4 MDD case to lift up the case.
