Well I've decided that since some things won't fit with the pull-out tray to scrap that idea and go with a clean Apple OEM look on the outside and stuff a large radiator on the inside. Drawings will be posted soon.

Wasn't able to do anything this weekend on the case, been too busy with getting house for sale. I'm also waiting on another G5 case so I can have some spare parts and a second front mesh.

Another quick update. Sorry for the lack of pictures and updates. I'm getting house sale ready and that is my main focus right now. I'll be out this next week in a cabin on Lake Superior away from it all. I'll have lots of time to think about ideas for this build though.

I've come up with a new idea for the internal layout and it requires a second G5 case so further progress will be at a stand still until I can procure a second case.

Well I was able to find a donor case for the rear PCI panel. It came from a smoker so it has tar all over it but a quick sanding later will fix that.



A minute later and all the rivets are drilled! The hardest part of this job is removing the rings from the drillbit afterwards.


I had to pass on several cases simply because they did not have the sunk in I/O panel like this one has, glad I was able to find one.


Here you can get a good look at the disgusting tar all over it.


I'm still looking for a second case right now but I may have to test my skills at repairing aluminum if I can't find one super cheap soon. I'm still scrounging the internet for all the necessary pieces I'll need to complete the look I'm going for.

IKR! I can scrape it off with my fingernails but it takes a lot of scratching, however, no amount of soaking or any form of solvent will clean it. I cannot imagine how nasty that is in lungs if acetone cannot remove it!

Little update:

I'm almost finished with my housework, putting it on the market this coming week so afterwards I should finally have some time to invest into this project. I've not found a second case yet so I'm thinking I may need to proceed with it making my own matching aluminum mesh. I'm also thinking this is going to be a secondary computer for the wife and kids now and watercooling may no longer be in the build. I do plan to design and build it so in the future it will be ready though.

Has anyone worked with the following products? Alumiweld or Alumaloy

Those might be the problem solver with fixing the holes in the mesh and mounting new ATX panel.

I'm a smoker and I know how hard the tar and nicotine are to remove...but don't fret.

That's all you need, soak it in a solution of 50/50 hot water and mean green for about 5 minutes and that back panel is golden without the smell and the build-up after you wash it down with water. Just to be on the safer side, after the initial soak, soak it the whole day then wash it down again. After drying, prime with self-etching primer.
