Apple G5 Conversion Mod
Skills: PC Building, Hackery
When I received an old, dead Apple G5 as a gift, I knew I'd have to build something interesting out of it. I decided to gut it and convert the innards to support PC hardware. I had the case anodized to a slightly darker shade, and designed a custom water-cooling loop. This was created with longevity & upgradability in mind, so the motherboard & GPU mounts are standard. During the build process, I documented every step and posted everything on a forum which you can check out here.
