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:

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
