Quicksilver Version III
I have continued to modify this Quicksilver and upgrade the cooling system. It is now fitted with a Giga Dual 1.8 currently overclocked and running at 1.87GHz. I have not yet worked out the jumper sequence for 1.93GHz.I fitted Dual G5 cooling fans (the 80 x 35mm cd compartment type). These are virtually silent but shift large amounts of air keeping the case super cool!
If you are going to cut holes in the top of your precious Mac, it pays to have the right tools:
Photograph 1. Below : Q-Max Sheet Metal Cutter
These are available in different sizes. This one is 78mm diameter, ideal for punching through metal!
Photograph 2. Below : Starrett Hole Cutter
These are also available in a plethora of different sizes. This one is 73mm & is the one I used on the plastic G4 top.
The plastic hole can be cleaned with fine sand paper, followed by flour paper & finished off with Brasso. This gives a professional polished finish
The Apple Fan Grills I designed are now machined & installed. They are made of Solid 3mm Thick Stainless Steel! See Below
Quicksilver is now fitted with A Gainward 7800GS 512mb AGP which shows up as a 7800GT in system profiler. Doom & Halo with settings maxed on my 17" Studio display run perfectly. See more details here
