So i ripped my perfectly good G5 to mod my supermicro board into so what next ?
I have a full parts bin of working g5 bits, should i junk together a REVERSE hackintosh ??
In what ? some ricer type neon early 2000s windowed case ? Or a beige win 98 oem ?
I'd hardly call it a reverse hackintosh if you can't run anything but an old version of MacOS or very old version of Linux on it.
That said, how about putting the innards in a cardboard box with my shipping address (and postage) on the top and seeing if it runs inside the mailbox?
Aside from the nonstandard form-factor, that water cooling setup is too heavy and too tall to mount without support (and in true Apple fashion, can it even run horizontally if you found such a case?). Apple succeeds in creating something that just won't work anywhere else without building a layout copy of their own case.
