Amazing job :thumb: for a MINI project LOL, but seriously an awesome job and your attention to details is what really made this :thumb:.
And seeing a MAC transformed in to a PC is just a bonus :haha:.

That looks amazing - for a Mac. Seriously though, it looks great :thumb: I love the actual "shape" of the case, and your collet are perfect. It almost looks like the PSU doesn't fit.

Just went through this thread from start to finish, and I do have to say that I am so very happy that I didn't have to wait to see the final product!

You should send this to Apple and tell them: look at the potential you had for this case! But you had to screw it up and put crap inside =(

Thanks Man, and yeah this "mini" project turned into something of a Behemoth :haha:

Thanks and as for the PSU: it does fit, but just barely :shok:

Very well done!

Outstanding!

Thanks guys :thumb:

What Apple should take from this if anything is that they have a huge gaping hole in their product line, where's the upgradable mainstream tower Steve? As for being full of crap inside you are right, however ten years ago that was a smoking fast machine. I did a little CineBench test to see what kind of performance increase the new components have offered.

PowerPC G4 (@ 450Mhz) xCPU Render Score: 298

Intel Core i7 860 (@ 4.0Ghz) xCPU Render Score: 22953

...That's a 77X performance improvement :shok:

Awesome!!! :punk:

wow that's looks really awesome.. I'm guessing the back i/o shield didn't fit? All the internal components look like they fit together like a glove lol:haha:

What OS are you running on it? Would it be mac OS by any chance?:whistle:

edit: woah just noticed those sata cables under the psu connected to the mobo:shok: would it be possible to change them at all?
