    Take a look at the Heat sync on the A1177. If it’s the right model, you might have one of these inside:

  • John Senchak

    Attach that non working right television to one of these bad boys and use it as a stand

  • Tim Barnes

    They might be a great case for a multi-channel home theater amp – install eight to ten Class D modules and a big switching power supply.

    Dave. Nowadays is difficult to find a case like this. I have 2 old Silicon Graphics cases. They are awesome late these ones. What i have done is to remove everything and put a new computer inside. You don´t need to much work. A dremer will do the work. You will have awesome new machine with a case nowone can have.

    As any EEVBLOG fan knows, those cases shall be converted into:
    1-Oscilloscope
    2-8.5 digit multimeter
    3-Programmable power supply

    I would put a fridge inside : a chilly beer is sometimes needed during summer 🙂

    It’s a pretty hardcore CPU there: the G5s work at multigigaflops, and take substantial amounts of RAM. It’s more a Xeon than an ARM… A new motherboard will not benefit from this case and power supply and cooling, but you could get Yellow Dog Linux to update the OS (from Unix aka MacOS 10.5 to G4/G5 Linux, aka Yellow Dog…).
