I made a PSU Shroud and Cable Cover Plate to have a clean look inside the G5. Also a custom sticker for the PSU which cannot be seen as I covered it with the PSU Shroud.

I already changed some peripherals which can be seen on my Facebook photo album.

The 3 x Seagate Barracude 2TB I have are used for Raid5 where I used a HDD Cage from a CM Master Case Pro 5 that can be seen in a photo here.

The Toshiba 2.5 hdd and Samsung SSD is underneath the motherboard. Which I am dual booting Win 10 and Osx El Capitan.

I used a Primochill Reservoir, EK Gpu water block and fittings, and Thermaltake Liquid Cooling Parts.

Some of my LCS photos may be different 'coz I made 2 revisions for the water cooling loop.

The one using the PrimoChill Reservoir is the latest build I have which anyone can view on my youtube link. :D

I delidded my i7 6700k and is running 4.6Ghz at 1.260v regularly.

Here is the Firestrike 1.1 Score in 3D Mark. http://www.3dmark.com/fs/7278608

For any questions feel free to comment... thanks!

Update 9-19-2016:

Currently using 2 monitor. my Asus VG278HE and an iMac :D as of now I'm using the iMac's Target Display Mode for my G5. I honestly like my setup now. Gaming and Workstation. Dual booting Windows 10 and Hackintosh Osx El Capitan and a real Mac operating El Capitan. :D

This has been on TonyMacx86 for a while, wasn't it? Why wait this long to post it here?

voidfahrenheit submitter 2 Builds 2 points 25 months ago

yeah it was there... it was in my saved part list for a long time... then just figured out yesterday how to put it on the completed builds. XD it was on the completed mods and Power Mac G5 mod topic

TotalInsanity4 2 points 25 months ago

I know lol I'm fairly certain I "liked" it there, too (unless I saw it before TMx86 switched over to XenForo)

APEBuilt 3 Builds 2 points 25 months ago

Awesome build and mod, but what are the thermal pad looking things on near the 8 pin PCIE ports on the 980Ti? Is a heatsink missing there or something or are you maybe covering your serial number?

voidfahrenheit submitter 2 Builds 1 point 25 months ago

that thermal pads was from the 1st mod... in my latest revision I removed it as it only gathers dust XD. the 980ti gpu block i have doesn't cover the whole pcb

Gooberdad 10 Builds 2 points 25 months ago

voidfahrenheit submitter 2 Builds 1 point 25 months ago

honestly i googled it.. but tried googling it again and i can't find it anymore. it's still on my worklog folder but i believe only 1080p. :( if i ever find it again i will let you know.

Nauticale 2 points 25 months ago

Great build! I'm curious on how you made the sticker and where you got the emblem?

voidfahrenheit submitter 2 Builds 2 points 25 months ago

sticker for the apple or the psu? i made it using photoshop and illustrator after i took the measurement of the psu's sticker. for the shield emblem, i measured the apple logo of the panel and made sure that the emblem will be a little larger than the apple logo. again, i traced the shield logo using illustrator, convert to pdf and bring to a laser cutting shop as i don't have yet the dremel motosaw to cut the logo. :)

Nauticale 1 point 25 months ago

Yes, the sticker for the psu. That's fascinating you had the laser cutting shop make the logo. What material is it made out of?

Vitality 2 Builds 2 points 25 months ago

Ive actually got a G5 in the works right now. ive seen your build since your first posted it on the tonymac x86 forums.

voidfahrenheit submitter 2 Builds 1 point 25 months ago

good luck on your mod. :D did you post it on tonymacs too?

Vitality 2 Builds 1 point 25 months ago

not yet. i plan on posting it when its completely done, im still waiting for my front panel USB3 cables to come in the mail. im going to post my whole new setup and everything with the G5 when its done. ill let you know

noodle74 1 Build 2 points 25 months ago

Huh over 150 upvotes for a system using an old Apple Power Mac case??!!

Does this mean the ultimate dream PC for us all is an Apple Mac computer?? :p

voidfahrenheit submitter 2 Builds 1 point 25 months ago

i think the case only XD because many really likes the beauty of the Mac G5/Mac Pro Case. really it was the best case for me ever since. i also like phanteks enthoo evolv, master case pro. but Mac G5 and Mac Pro Cases still ranks 1 for me :)

daisydog 1 Build 2 points 25 months ago

Sweet build....always loved those cases, and you made it even better. Congrats on the featured build.

joeymann 2 points 25 months ago

Why would you cut a window hole in to that beautiful G5!? Otherwise, great build.

voidfahrenheit submitter 2 Builds 1 point 25 months ago

if i don't want to show the setup inside I will maintain the original side panel. but I really wanna show the setup. :D

also, thanks!

CrimzonSlayeRx 2 points 24 months ago

Hail Hydra.

Great Build...and Setup
