Okay, call me crazy, but I'm tired of this 17" lcd in my C2D iMac. I'd like to disassemble it, sell the case and lcd, and buy a tower for the guts of my imac. Any suggestions? I havent been able to find anyone crazy enough to do this online?
I dont really care about the beauty of the case... I'd like a nice looking tower so i can throw some big ass fans in there and cool this puppy down another 5-10 degrees. Id also like to get rid of these 5 external hard drives and put a few in there. Any recommends on this transplant operation ;D
The logic boards and power supplies are not pretty in these things. The board is a really odd shape with a heat sink which is about the same size, and also an unusual shape. The PSU is unshielded, so care must be taken in mounting it. You'll probably need a lot of ducting to get air to the right places. unless you keep the original blowers. Guess what, they are not like the fans in most towers. They are designed for a slim enclosure. This is a brave move. Is your warranty out?
You'll have to get extension cables for all the ports, because they're mounted perpendicular to the motherboard. So, when you mount it in the case, they'll be facing inside the case, not toward the back.
