I would also recommend to have masking tape or painters tape on the places you are going to cut. I made that mistake and have a lot of unwanted scratched on the case by the place i cut. Good Luck and welcome to the Powermac G5 modding club. I think we should have that club.

Okay, FINALLY making some progress to completion. Finally got the coldzero parts ordered and paid. It took so long because they were custom and Ricardo and his wife had another child and since they were custom, we had to discuss them a lot and he had lots of computer troubles so finally got them paid for and they should be shipped tomorrow. Also traded my 4770k for a 3770k. I thought someone would be interested in my UP7 but I guess not so I'm going to stay with it. I'm going to change the look of the board block though. I'm going to have the copper pieces nickel plated and I am going to paint the silver part black to match the POM. Shouldn't be that difficult.

From there, I just need to modify the case a little more for the rad grills and the fan controller adapter. Make some super easy sleeved extensions, wire and sleeve the front panel connectors, and fill the loop. Will easily be done for college and August MOTM biggrin.gif hope you guys will vote for me!

Who knows, there might be some REALLY good builds going up against me.

I am headed to Washington State University on the 12th! Where are you going?

Coldzero parts finally arrived! Just got off the phone with my sister and she said she just signed for them. I'm at a soccer tournament for the day so pictures this evening! I am so excited! I can FINALLY finish the build!

Very tough!!



Okay guys, it's update time!

Update 21 - Burrrr it's Coldzero

So I finally received my Coldzero parts on Friday while I was working. Sister signed for them. Wow! Portugal to the west coast of the US in three days! That was fast! Anyways, I have only just now had a chance to put them to use in my build. Excellent quality. So, on to the build!

3ycAWP0.jpg

The items I got were:

-360MM Hex Dual Layer Rad Grill (exactly like the Primochill version)
-160MM Hex Dual Layer Rad Grill (2x 80MM, matches 360MM)
-Custom Front Panel for Fan Controller

360MM rad grill.

160MM rad grill.

Fan controller plate.

How the plate works.

Marked up and ready to cut the case!

Completed! Sorry, no pictures of the cutting process.

Different view.

The 360MM rad grill is on. It goes: top piece > case > hex pattern > fan > radiator. I used 35MM Hex Socket screws. LOVE them!

Different shots.

That's all I was able to accomplish today! HUGE thing is done now though! The last time I will have to mount that radiator! And boy oh boy was it hard to mount this time. I should have had it designed to be a sort of drop in mount with 140MM mounting points to attach to the case but oh well, it is how it is and it looks AWESOME!

Another update coming tomorrow!
