I’m an computer customization junkie. I love tweaking the look and feel of my desktop. It’s part and parcel of being a geek, I suppose.
The two major resources for finding Mac OS X icons are IconFactory and InterfaceLIFT, but their collections (while good) haven’t updated in quite some time. So my search for quality, high resolution icons started…
After hours and hours of digging around and some Google-fu, I came upon these fantastic sites. (You can thank me later) ;)
Minium2 – futuristic Mac OS X icon and dock replacement.
Kremalicious – neat custom icons, docks and even wallpaper.
Studio28 – slick icons here, including a really sweet retro Apple symbol.
Artcore icons – stylish, cartoony icons
hard drive replacement icons by bogo-d
Slick drives by Thvg (The icons you see up above.)

Lifehacker Desktop Show and Tell: a huge collection of Mac, Windows, and Linux tricked out desktops.

For what it’s worth, I use CandyBar, from Panic, to organize and customize my icons and dock. If you’re serious about customizing icons on your Mac, CandyBar is well-worth the $30 price. Got any other high quality Mac icon sites to recommend?
