The G5 in its stock case has 8 or 9 fans in a much larger case. Aside from that, getting the board and the PSU in a G3/4 case will be no mean feat on their own. They are much bigger than ATX parts.

agreed war, I think it will be a feat in and of itself to get a g5 into that case and running well. But, I would love to see it! that logic board is pretty big...

no worries, I think most of us here would rather give the advice that something is going to be a tough feat to someone rather than them thinking it will be a piece of cake and start something they can't finish. Just keep in mind that the G5 is one of the hottest processors ever produced. That is the reason Apple could never get one in a laptop. It will need alot of cooling.

unless you plan on installing an intel processor in that machine, you won't be dual booting.

But, I would love to see some macosx86project.org action. Just remember that Apple does not allow the installation of Mac OS X on non apple hardware, AND, you def need to buy Mac OS X.

good luck.

i have a copy of osX, got it from my father inlaw, and it will def. be getting a intel processor, got a nice pentium d 3.2 dual core lying around and it would be perfect for this setup.

It has an Apple logo on the case (or could have). Doesn't that make it Apple branded?

wink

sounds cool man. Be sure to take plenty of pics of the process, so you can make a mod guide. ;D
