    I'll bet you can sell this thing for a grand on eBay. The case alone costs much more than you paid.

    Question


    Just an observation - that 3 pin connector you couldn't figure out? It might be the lead for the internal speaker, unless you've already got that connected. I'm a Mac and PC person, and this really looks neat. (Plus, you would really freak out a Mac user who sees it whiles it boots up! )

    I would pay good money to see my mac zealot friend see a "G4" booting up windows, and NOT though Virtual PC

    That's a great idea...I tink I'll send him the link. Thanks for the idea stonhinge!

    (and good observation about the 3pin connector)

    Yep - No lie. This was my first case mod. It took a total of about 35 hours. Prolly would've taken less had I been more prepared and didn't goof up.

    Nope, there's another cable that goes to the speaker. I have it rigged up to the motherboard's PC speaker header, so the mobo POSTs through the case speaker.

    Wink Arghh!

    What a senseless waste of a good G4 case! I'll give you 10 points for ingenuity, but God! Thats like putting a Chevette engine in a Mercedes!
    Ah, well , The worlds a better place with diversity. Incidentally, Virtual PC on a G4 (Running on Mac OS 9.1) boots Windows 98 about 4 times faster than a PC.

    cheaper.
    easier.
