    Hey guys.

    My eMac has a bad CRT, so I stripped it down today and removed everything but the CRT. I'd like to find an enclosure that will be cool to house the logic board and other parts. Any ideas?

    Also, how would I get power to the logic board? The PSU is housed under the CRT and would be a bitch to take out xD

    Thanks,
    Ant

    You're wasting your time. eMacs should be recycled at this point.

    Certainly not if they still function properly.

    But when parts start failing and can't be replaced...

    If Apple stops supporting old people, then it's time to euthanize them :D

    I know what you can do with the speakers:D These speakers sound great even without the eMac:D There from a non-working 700MHz eMac.
