I like those pipes :) (and how you've hidden components) 5/5 just because of those things.. Only thing which I don't like, is the case original design :P

This is the best G5 casemod around. I like the super clean execution and the fact that no wires are visible. Looks absolutely sweet

Solarfall, main reason was because it loooks good. Then again the whole sysetm is a heatsink(kinda). As for removing the mb, it's not that hard. There are small pices of hose joining the copper tube to the pump, so it has some flex(not that I need to remove the mb that often)

Why not use the standard pvc/pur tubing for your watercooling. i mean removing Your components, like the motherboard must be hell ;) well at least its unique 4/5

It's running XP Media Center Edition. Might try some Vista tho.

Are you using Intel MacOSX on this?

Interesting: 5/5

GSX26.07.2006 13:37
Seems that I put it in the wrong category. This is a bit more then a sincle case mod. If any mod sees this, plz move to full case mods if possible.

dude that is one unique computer, I like the bottom layer covered up, looks great, nice and neat too. 5/5
