Mac Classic Build

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Custom, Mods

Great way to end 2018 with completing the Mac Classic (It’s a Mac Classic II case) build. Took some time to get all the parts due to the pricing for RAM & GPU’s this year. Plus with the i9-9900K coming out, it delayed the build a little bit. The build started with purchasing a Mac […]

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

Been testing out the GTX 1060, haven’t bought a graphics card in years. Last card I bought was an AMD HD7950 for my Mac Pro. So far this graphics card has been amazing within this small case. Wanted to push it a little bit and hooked up 3 monitors, hitting 5760×1080 (16:3 aspect ratio). That’s […]

G4 P1 – Removing old components

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Custom, G4 Mod, Mods

Here I start to remove all the old components in the Apple G4 Cube. You can see that there isn’t really much room for air flow, will be a tight fit for anything. All the airflow will be coming from the bottom and coming out the top. Will be pretty much 3 channels for airflow, […]
