Are you one of those people who hoard old hardware "just in case it can come of use", for nostalgic reasons and fond memories, or simply because you don't have the heart to throw out *beautiful* functional hardware? Here is a prime example of why you shouldn't toss out old hardware because you never know when a project like this can come about. While this mod is a bit dated, MacBane is still smoking hot (we could not envision a 14 year-old G4 PowerMac case looking this way). Supremely nice job by an anonymous Canuck out in British Columbia; and quite the badass name for the mod too.
Hi everyone, I'm a long time lurker of the forums and thought I would share my latest project.
I have had an old "Sawtooth" PowerMac G4 lying around my office/man-cave for a couple of years just being used for website and Flash testing. It is now ten years old as of January and it’s about time to retire it forever as the ancient and completely obsolete guts it has now make it next to useless when compared to the quad core Hackintosh tower that replaced it. I do like this case as it's a classic but its time as a PowerPC based Mac is over. And I am sure that there are a lot of people here who would love to see a way to fit a full sized tower cooler into a G4 case, consider this guide a way to do it. Looking in my parts bin I found more than enough (somewhat) modern components to put this thing together. Please note that this is my first mod, all input is welcomed. :D
