    For Part 3 of this build, we fit EVERYTHING into our modded Apple G5 case. Thanks to EKWB, we get to water cool this beast with our final tubing runs and then leak test everything to make sure we can move forward with the build.

                  Please, please 3d model the PSU bracket thingy, 3d print it (and share the stl ), I need this for a totally different build i previously was thinking was not possible but this could work :)

                    You should also make one with air cooling like the real mac has.

                      World of Tanks You’re never gonna get air cooling into a case that small with the parts they want to use without making your own custom air cooling system that’s designed around that case specifically, at least not with as beefy cooling as they need to keep everything in such a tight package cool. Maybe if they only had a single CPU it would be possible, but with two it’s just not feasible using standard ATX components.

                      World of Tanks The Powermac G5 had watercooling. Air cooling is kinda hard to fit properly in a case of that size with the parts they’re trying to use.

                          Realistically you would 3D model this first to get all the dimensions exact.
