I am trying to find a way to mod a Apple Emac I have had kicking about (baseboards but no monitor or psu) and mod it into a mac mini of sorts.

From a soft side the two are almost identical but I am not sure from a hardware side especially with the ajoining monitor power interface.


Any suggestions. :0)

Thank You

your making a mountain out of a mole hill.

1. check to make sure your main board has no bulging capacitors if it does its dead and don't bother

there are several mods across the internet on how to do this but i have a question???

did the heatsink come with your mainboard if it didnt you will fry the unit before you get to fire it up.
