Default Apple Core Duo mod

Modding an Apple G5 case had been a dream of mine for as long as I set my eyes on it. In my opinion it is the ultimate case. Minimalist but memorable. Sleek yet solid. Sexy yet... you get the point right? When I found one on eBay for a very reasonable price, I snapped it up immediately and then proceeded to stare at it for hours on end every day after work. I would ask myself how one could take a Dremel to it and not ruin its minimalist, sleek and sexy form... so begins the story of what has taken over an enormous amount of my spare time over the past two years.

It has been quite a journey. Being new to modding I made quite a few mistakes along the way. I learnt from these however and came back with even more determination to get it right. Those of you who have been following the project will have seen that I went through two different front panel designs, had to redo the rear of the case after my initial attempts failed and also got through three mirrored perspex side panels due to 'chipping issues'. You will see two completely different perspex Aquaero mounts and radiator covers and a lot more perspex mock-ups that didn't make it into the final build. I even changed hardware and watercooling components after I got sponsored... almost a year ago. Heck, i've even moved house twice in the process!

Something about this obviously not being a PC case so every thing had to worked out and made from scratch. E.g. brackets, mounting etc. I think this is what made it a lot of work!
