I have always liked the idea of rescuing and repurposing dead macs. See my previous G4 to G5 case conversion HERE. I found a seventeen inch intel iMac with a broken screen on ebay and dreamt up this little project. This is an early 2006 iMac that has had the EFI updated from 4,1 to 5,1 allowing for more ram to be installed. Due to the unreasonable cost of replacing the screen on the 17" iMac's I set out to built a mid tower mac with a sleek simple look, a quiet cooling system, easily accessible hard drives. System Specs: 2.33 ghz T7600 Core 2 Duo CPU 3GB Ram (2+1 GB) 64GB SSD System Drive 1TB Western Digital Green Storage Drive 1 DVI port (digital only) USB 2.0 (4 ports) Firewire 400 (2 ports) Gigabit Ethernet Headphone Out Audio Line Input Original internal speakers Classic Mac Pro Inspired cooling system (quiet and efficient) 2 filtered front panel fans (120mm & 140mm) Reconfigured original heat pipe cooler Spot cooled graphics and system chipsets with temperature monitoring and thermal controlled fans. (The fans and thermal sensors for the optical and harddrive have been repurposed for cooling these chipsets. GPU thermal paste was redone with arctic silver) Some pictures!
