Wadap2 guys. This will be long story short. sorry for broken english.

Scouting in mudah.my . I got something fantastic on my eyes. i purchase imac 24 inch 2007 broken gpu for only RM200 only !!.

The plan is i put good motherboard into this imac. Luckyly i got some Intel Nuc5i7RYH lying around doing nothing. Put some m2 sata and smash osx inside and boom. notworthy.gif Dab Baby Dab

The imac already barai.😁 it time for drawing board.

The Plan was:

~ Will be putting the NUC on middle upper top.
~ PSU inside original place.
~ Will be using back the original fan, it will be control from arduino nano. with temp control speed (kindoff will be trying out my luck for the coding, ambitious worth to try) rclxm9.gif
~ original speaker maybe. icon_rolleyes.gif

* Done ordering from aliexpress. Now waiting to arrive.

End of PART 1.

Looking for 3d printer to mount Nuc mother board and psu inside the imac case. If u can drop some comment where i can get those. 😍
