Strip down a power mac g4
Learn how to gut it of electronics so you can use it to store stuff
1 The motherboard
Unplug all power and ATA connectors from the motherboard and unscrew the graphics card. Unscrew the heat sink and remove it and the CPU daughter-board. Unscrew the motherboard, slide it toward the Mac’s front and lift it clear. Undo the two screws for the plate over the small fan and slide it off the mounting posts.
2 The optical drive
Unclip the cable for the modem port and remove the port itself. Pull down the molex plug for the hard disk to remove it. Take the chrome backplate off the optical drive chassis and undo all the power and data cables. Undo the screws at the drive caddy’s front and back, then slide it out. The big drive fan should also just lift out.
3 PSU and hard disk
At the Mac’s rear, remove the top hex bolt that secures the power supply unit, then undo the single screw at the other end. Cut the power cables and remove the power supply. Take out the hard disk, and the drive caddy below the optical drive bracket. You should now have an empty cabinet.
