I have decided to buy a mac pro. However, there are a couple of tasteful mods I wish to make, and I need some advice: I want to upgrade the GPU HSF to a Zalman. No problem, I know how to do this. I want to BTO the 8800GT, and stock GPU HSFs suck. Might have to buy a slimmer Zalman, depending on room. But a Zalman here should ensure silence from the one part Apple does not make. I want to upgrade the case fans to Zalman LED Case Fans if possible. This I don't know about. A super custom fan may not be easily replaceable. Does anyone know which of the Mac Pro fans are custom or standard (or close enough to mount a standard Zalman case fan)? Could someone describe all the fans and locations in the Mac Pro for me. I admit, this may not be necessary, and I might skip this upgrade. I am using this Mac as a video server in addition to my creative needs, so I am going for silence. Not willing to water cool-too much trouble, too much money, and there is not enough room. I want to upgrade/redo the thermal paste on the Mac Pro CPU (yep-I am only getting the single quad) and GPU. This I mostly know how to do, and frankly, I don't trust Apple's thermal jobs from what I have read. And I want to install duel SATA DVD Burners, perhaps with Lightscribing abilities. But I have to research how much Lightscribe Media runs. I think I can do this just fine, but does anyone know of any disadvantages like the eject button not working, as I know Apple DVD Drives have special firmware. If there are allot of problems, I will keep the Apple Superdrive, and just install one SATA drive underneath for better performance. Might do Blu-Ray, but I am not sure about that format just yet. HD over the internet may supplant it. And I want some tasteful LED Lights to display a custom look. Not willing to cut any holes, but perhaps I can do something from within, or something soft mounted outside. I would never cut a window out ether, as I am not a window guy, and my next mod precludes one... As an accomplished artist, I am going to paint two murals on the two side panels, maybe keeping the Apple logos intact. Never painted on aluminum before, and need advice on how to prep the surface, what paint to use, and how to seal it in. I was going for a faded in mural look, so that the rest of the case will still be plain aluminum. Getting the mural shininess to fade nicely into the aluminum is something I am worried about. I want it to have a quality tactile feel when finished. Well those are my ideas. I know what some may think. Why defile your Apple statue, void it's warranty, and hurt it's resell value? Aside from the fact that the last item is arguable, I think different and value uniqueness. That's why. If done tastefully, who does not want a cool custom Mac Pro? However, I have no plans to ever sell this machine, so resale value is a moot point. Oh and just for my curiosity, what PSU does the Mac Pro use? Can it be custom replaced if it dies, or does it have to be the official one? If anyone has any more ideas, comments, photoshopped visuals, post away!
