[Work Log] A Mac g4 mod... with a twist (Powermac G4 ATX pc crossover mod) - Page 2

Hey guys, I'm back. So sorry about the break, school just started up and I have had some family issues. I have final finished the basics of the case (to where it actual fits). I encountered a lot of problems with the psu mount. I decided to use velcro (surprisingly strong) to attach the psu to the bracket. I original had the bracket attached to the case with gorilla glue, and it did hold everything up. But when I tried to take the psu out, it pulled the bracket right off. In the end I used epoxy and attached a brace that helps the bracket hold the psu. I also cut the hole for the power cable which you can see in the bottom of the case in the picture below.







I decided to change the way I was mounting the motherboard. I am now using two standoffs and a thumbscrew.








Ample room for air/cables
Here is all of the components in the mobo tray:








and now for the moment of truth; will it fit?

That's all for now, I will not get to work on it this weekend but I hope to get the fan mountings and window done next week.
Have a nice day! thumb.gif

I have decided to put this project aside for now. I am too busy with school and working on my main rig to relay put some money and time into a descent paint job for this rig. I may try putting a window in it sometime in the futer. This case is holding my family computer atm. Thats all for now! Look out for my main rig sometime soon!
