Here at MacTechnology, we're always looking for great new ways to re-use old & obsolete Apple computers and the parts that go inside them.
Apple's PowerMac G5 series had incredibly powerful high-performance processors, which got very, very hot - take a look inside one and you'll find no less than seven fans keeping various areas inside the computer cool at different times.
And just to make sure no-one got injured if they popped off the side cover before the computer had cooled down, they put these superb (and rather lovely) aluminium cover plates over the housing where the main processor lives.
We have acquired a stock of these coverplates from redundant Apple PowerMac G5s, and are turning them into good old aluminium analogue quartz clocks ...
This item is one of the early model, single-processor G5 coverplates, which measures
15cm / 6in across
9cm / 3.5in high
We supply it complete with a socket on the back for wall hanging on a single nail, and a folding easel-type stand for it to sit on a desk or shelf
You also receive a set of TEN black and silver Apple logo stickers to personalise your clock ...
