Case Mod Friday: Sour Apple

Project Name: Sour Apple


About this mod / project:
Welcome to this Case Mod, in which I will be taking a Power Mac G4 and converting it to fit mATX and to accommodate 3x240mm radiators. Both exterior and interior will be painted in matte black and matte white. This will take place over the course of the next year or so (I hope it doesn’t take any longer!) As I am a student and money is rare! Hopefully I will have finished the case completely by the time I can afford the Hardware itself which will most likely be around Christmas time. This build has evolved from initially being in a Bitfenix Prodigy then a Bitfenix Survivor then a Power Mac G5 and now finally the G4! This will also be a dual boot system
