오래된 케이스지만 간지 나네요

10년이나 지난 애플 파워맥 G5 케이스인데 맥프로 케이스랑 외부 프레임은 같고 내부 구조만 조금 다른데 케이스 중고 3-5만원이면 살수 있습니다.

01*-****-**** 용산 업체인데 요기에서 팝니다.


 have a Micro-ATX case for my hackintosh. So far it's been great, however, when I threw a GTS 250 in the mix and realized I could no longer close the casing, I decided it was time for a change. And so I got myself a PowerMac G5 case (from the 2.5 DP model. June 2004, I believe.)


Like most, I checked around online to see what others have done before me. Some amazing work has been done. Probably the most inspiring mod I found was by MrBean_Oz over at Hard Forum (http://www.hardforum...d.php?t=1074089). I have to admit though, I haven't seen one case mod that catered to my fancy. Most mods start out with "I'm leaving the back untouched" and then compromises are made as the project progresses, which is understandable, however, I'd like to mod a G5 without changing the external appearance (this includes getting the original power button and LED to work with my board as well).


And so I'll be documenting my experience (success and failure). Hopefully all will go well. I'm doing most of the modding this weekend, so check back if you're curious.


-----------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE (March 29, 2009): Alrighty. Here are some pictures of the finished product. As I said earlier, I didn't make the back ports functional (due to the time it would take and my utter lack of know-how), but I may attach the G5's connectors just to clean it up aesthetically. I also have most of the original G5 fans working, but they aren't installed in the following pictures.


-----------------------------------------------------------

I mounted the motherboard on the G5's original standoffs by removing them, screwing them into the appropriate holes on the motherboard and reapplying them in the case with J-B Weld. That mobo ain't goin' nowhere!



Getting the cabling under the motherboard was a bit tricky, but it worked out well, and there's no flex in the motherboard either.



Power button and LED work (didn't bother with the front USB and Firewire, though I might later)



ATX PSU has been modded to fit inside the G5's PSU enclosure, and the rear power port has been kept the same. The PSU fans from the G5 are hardwired to the one I installed and work great (I love those G5 fans!)



For sound I installed an M-Audio Revolution 5.1 sound card, and for expansion ports I threw in a USB / Firewire PCIe card. Unfortunately the PCIe card isn't recognized until an OS loads, so I have two internal USB ports tucked away beside the hard drive bay for the odd time I need to get into the BIOS. For network I'm using an Apple USB Ethernet adapter.



Finished product from the front.



Finished product from the back.



I know it isn't the most functional mod, but I did it the way I wanted to and I love how it turned out. I'm about form over function for the most part, so I'm just happy I didn't have to cut up the back of the case in the end

-----------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE (April 8, 2009): I have since gotten the front panel USB and rear USB ports working. I've wired up both hard drive bay fans, as well as the rear fans in their original mounting piece, and the two front fans as well. It sure runs cool now!

저도 개조를 준비중인데..케이스 하나를 윈98형님이 주셔서리..
안에 개조를 어찌 했는지 궁금하네요
멋지네요...

맥은 간지용이죠 ㅋ

후면 팬을 120mm 로 개조 할 수 있으면 좋겠네요.

안그래도 데스크탑 케이스가 다 망가져서 하나 사야지 하고 있었는데..

2~3만원 정도면 도전해 볼 것 같습니다.

자세히보니 백패널은 어케해야... ㄷㄷ

이야...  멋 있는데요? 일단, 공랭은 끝내줄 것 같습니다.
이게 저도 개조 할려구 하는데 고민만 2년째 입니다.;;;
저렇게 파워를 넣을려면 파워 as 포기하고 케이스를 뜯어서 넣어야 되더라구요.
맥프로 케이스가 구조적으로 개조가 더 쉽다고 하더군요.
개조가 되어서 나오는거라면 좋은듯 합니다... 아니 완전 저렴한것이지요... 사고 싶네요 ... 하하

전화번호를 검색하니 아래의 업체가 나오더군요.
근데 가격은 좀 뭔가 이상하네요.

빈 케이스가 70만원 씩이나? @@

급 관심에서 70만원에 침착해졌습니다. 하하하

업체 광고인가요 -_-
     
엠브리오 2016-12
은근 슬쩍 낑겨 넣은 광고전략일수도? ㅋㅋ

그런거 같네요.. 70만원이면 G5 케이스 몇십개는 살 듯 한데요..

알류미늄이 있어보이는데요

g4 큐브는 없을려나요?
tidd 2016-12
흐음 좀 땡기는군요
RealHoon 2016-12
70만원이면.. 그냥 중고로 사서 부품들어내고 개조하는게 나을듯 합니다..
