                              Ashame regardless that you taken it apart. But what I’ve done with one of my G5’s was tried my best to keep the G5 look. Did well didn’t cut much reused the rear fan Assembly and fitted new 92mm looks great front I/o with new usb parts and the original power button. What an amazing case and computer.

                                I got an idea... What if you run Macintosh and use bootcamp and in the windows from bootcamp you install VMware and install mac os again and use bootcamp on that
