Lian Li do make a 2 sata board as well.....so if the spacing is the same that would be the logical choice. The 3 sata though can be chopped down to 2 without problem or loss of functionality.

I just need to take apart another G5 to double check how it'd work at the back. My suspicion is it might not fit in the regular placing up top and right but may work as an array elsewhere perhaps underslung from the DVD shelf.

I am thinking of building a tower with several G5 holders and 2 Lian Li sata boards then. Great.

Some old news :

 

I switch all the internal parts

 

Mobo : ASUS P6X58D with BIOS v 0216 10/16/09

PSU : Original G5 with cables reorganized and soldered with the ATX connectors plug, PCIE plugs, CPU plugs

CPU : Xeon L5650 @ 2.66GHz overclocked @ 3.00GHz (aircooling)

GPU : GeForce GTX 480

Ram : KHX 1600C9D3K3/12GX 3*4Gb triple channel

Still working on the copper tubes, I had to adapt some with the graphic card.
