[project] the G5-yufi - UP! 05.12.14 - They are among us !!



Hello Bit-Tech !

After more than one year since my last project based on an Apple Cube, I started another one bigger based this time on the well-known Apple PowerMac G5 !

If we like or not the brand with an apple, I think the design of this case leaves no one indifferent !



Quote:
Also, I want to specialy thanks my sponsors / partners :


- Prolimatech who gave me their support by providing me their new fans called Ultra Sleek Vortek, the models USV12 and USV14


www.prolimatech.com


- Seasonic also join my project by sending me a fantastic PSU the P-760 Hybrid Which is fully modular and certified 80Plus Platinum


www.seasonic.com & www.green-spirit.fr


- Kingston who renewed their trust in this project by sending me 2 of their high speed SSD : the HyperX 3k in 120Gb, these drives will be mounted in RAID for even more performance !!

First Update !

I started on the front of the case, by creating a new entry for a slot-in drive, it took me a lot of time for this but I'm quite happy with the result

First aff all, some line on autocad, to be sure of what I'll do !



then the drawing


somes holes








with some little files




result


cut


temporary support of the new slot




and, the cut on the case




installation of the new slot on the case


and gluing with the epoxy


and, drill all the little holes with the help of a guide


When it's done, we take off all the parts to clean them


and we put it all together with some epoxy mastic






when it's dry, we sand


and again some drilling to unclog holes filled product




little spray paint to have an idea of the result





this part is finish !! All your comments are welcome !

The next update will be on the front panel

Stay around !

Amazing work! I've always wondered how people make these slots themselves. Great guide!

Nice work. Continuing the holes to make it look OEM is always a good plan with these cases. Most others just bolt stuff to the front/back.

Second Update !!

This time, it's about the integration of a USB 3.0 frontpanel .

As I done for the slot, I begin with some lines on Autocad


then some drawing and cutting
















and I cut the case


the two parts ready to be assembled






after some sanding


drilling


some painting to check the result


then we continue on the support of the frontpanel, my goal was to make it invisible from the outside of the case, so it take lot of time and holes !

first, find some space to drill holes ont the frontpanel




the same on an aluminum corner






after many steps this is what I got, I think this part is not so clean than the other, because I redrilled all the holes in 3,5mm (instead of 3,0mm) to try to hide this support.







then we glue the support with an exoxy glue






and this is the result after some finishing


The next update will be about the integration of the lian li hotswap rack !

Stay around

Finally someone who respects the holeyness () of this case and doesn't just cut huge chunks out of it. Great work!

Couldn't agree more. I'll be taking a leaf out of this book when I get round to doing my G5.

Now this is what a G5 mod is supposed to be!

I've never seen anyone take such an approach this far and I sure hope you'll have the strength to pull out all the stops all the way.

I'll definitely be watching this one.

Great work there. Shows a lot of respect for the original design, which is what mods should be about IMO.
