Project: The Apple/19.03.2013/Interior
 
I cordially greet you, and I want to welcome you to my new project,called The Apple
After the finish of Hello Kitty-project,I was thinking a lot about a new one,and I decided to mod an Apple G4 case, the very fact that the error of ATX motherboards, and other components of course, I found it a challenge
This mod would like to progress in the field of presentation and taken photos, which is quite far away, so to speak, from me
My goal is to create a compact mode (PC), which in appearance and performance meets the present day
HW used will be shown step by step, as currently only the i7 3770k own that will be the heart of this Project
In short I want to prove that not all the old stuff for the landfill and waste
I hope you will enjoy the new project, and that we will share impressions, ideas, and have fun
So lets start
A couple of pictures of the case and its condition :

Super. ;)

I ja već dugo tražim G5-icu da ju sredim ali nikako da nađem krepanu.

Baš me zanima kako češ srediti ovu četvorku.

siliconfanatic 22nd Jan 2013 05:48

Why do I have a strong feeling that that hex nuts gonna end up as a fill port? :lol:

I always have liked the G4 case albeit more than the G5.


I'm gonna get flamed...:worried:... I'm gonna get flamed...

Very interested to see how this goes, i have one in bits in my shed! They are a well made case alright. Will be good to see what you do with it, good luck!

to nisam ni ja druže našao,ali sve u svemu ovo kućište mi je slađe od G5,jer je manji i kompaktniji
želeo bih da spolja sačuvam osobine fabričke koliko je moguće:)

Glad you have the same case,so welcome and follow this project,and the end if you liked it,you can do the same,or even better,with new ideas:thumb:

Zsolt Guriga 24th Jan 2013 18:02

The weather was so good in the morning, so I threw on the project
I plotted where and how to cut the bottom of the case,so I can turned it into atx case
and I decided to go a few steps further than pure measurement
