Well done, might have to adapt some of your concepts for myself one day
I would be honored, thank you.

1) the connectors to screw (with O ring) onto the waterblocks with straight connection for the north and south-bridges, mofsets (voltage regulators) and also the tank reservoir :
2) the standard plumber's connectors for the pipes in and out to the motherboard and from the two flexibles which go on the other side to the serpentin and the pipe coming from the pump :
How will the serpentin be attached to the bottom plate inside the Macpro case :
the flexible bringing the liquid to the serpentin inside the Macpro case from the second mosfet inside the G5 case is already attached :
The sensor will lay under the bottom plate :
Here the serpentin is resting with the vernis on. My friend, plumber and central warming specialist advised me to put two lays of vernis to avoid any oxydation and color changement with the warm liquid:
3) small pieces of transparant plastic tubes to connect the copper pipes to the processor, ram metallic tubes and the graphic card :
the outgoing from the GPU has to be connected with a small pipe to the northbridge:
All the pipes have been vernis. The pipe coming from the last ram to the northbridge has been redirected to the incoming connector from the GPU.
Last step before bringing all the pipes in position.
The pipes are drying after being vernished :
this long one will go from the pump to the incoming from the processor via the flexible connected under the bottom panel. For now it is put upsidedown for drying
the two pieces will connect the pump to the reservoir and the reservoir to the long one. The long one has to be cut because I decide to put the reservoir at the bottom part of the DVD drives holder instead of in the upper side
the last piece which connect the outgoing from the GPU waterblock to the northbridge
Tomorrow, all the pipes will be put definitely in place.
Next step is to insert the Thermaltake water level sensor inside the reservoir and then connect the two cases .

One more things
First, the plexi board was changed for an internal cut G5 case door, the Mobo is attached to a PC mobo plate which is screwed onto the internal G5 case door by using the attached points for the closing G5 door system.
Second, the 3D lighted Apple logo has been transplanted onto the G5 door.
Third, the plexi case for the PSU has been switched for a modded G5 PSU; cut in two parts, one for the plug hole in the G5 case and the other for the PSU located in the lowered bottom case.
And finally I succeed to pop-in the plexi Apple logo onto the G5 external door.
the lights on plexi board the lights onto G5 door other side of the G5 door all lights cables glued

Still have to make the holes for the wires.
I took out the opening system for the dvd drive. I will attach a piece of meshpanel as I had done with the MPcase.

Teknojunkie was kind enough to make diagrams for these connections :http://www.insanelym...ac-g5-diagrams/
The 60"power fans are connected to the Mobo System fan connector and not to the Mobo Power fan connector, because the Power fan connector is 12V and the System fan has a speed Control and therefore very quiet.

Concerning the Liquid Cooling, I need to buy a new pump and connect the two cases.

Just finish the top case with the shining Meshpanel with holes with same size as the G5 case. The upper level and the bottom case had already been covered with anodized Meshpanel with small holes .
You know, if you described this to me in a conversation, I probably wouldn't think I would like it. Also I rarely like modding the exterior of the G5...but this somehow ir pretty darn cool...great job!

I still have a G5 door lying around. I can cut the logo out and send it to you. I can cut the apple and flee in one piece, you can adjust it as you like or just the apple logo, just tell me what you need.

I want to cut the grey out, preserve it, glue it to the inside on a piece of lexan. Give it a 3D effect, especially when I light it. hope that helps more...
