Welcome to my next mod, I have been planning this one for a while and seeing as I have now finished Sour Apple it is time to start again. This time I am going above and beyond the 'standard' G5 mod which IMHO is overdone and a bit boring. What I have planned is going to take the G5 to the next level, the only thing I will say is 2 480mm radiators and a 240mm radiator, go figure...

I have just collected 4 G5s in varying condition, 3 of them have severely damaged feet and they have their fair share of dents and dings although that is not a problem for what I have planned. All 4 G5s will be involved in the mod so this should be exciting

I have begun stripping them down and found that two of them are the watercooled ones which is pretty awesome. I have a 1.8Ghz, a 2Ghz which are the older models and then I have two 2005 models, a 2.3Ghz and a 2.5Ghz of which one is a quad core model. The 2.5Ghz one actually has all of its parts so might boot up but I have no power cable for it. However between the lot of them I should be able to scrape together a working system, the 2.5Ghz also came with a 750GB Hard Drive which is pretty nice

As of yet I have a vague idea of what parts I want to put in it but I cannot decide on a color scheme, red black and white would work best with the parts I have picked but it is far too cliche so I am trying to think of something else, suggestions are welcome! Perhaps just black and white would look good I am not sure.

Any suggestions for a name are welcomed too!
