We used the PSU on top and HDD cage in front strategy. Here's my friends completed, sorry the pics aren't clearer: I found a G5 -complete with dead PSU on Craigslist for $40! For mine, I purchased a Mountain Mods motherboard tray with the dual 80's option. For those who dont know, they come in pieces and screw together which is actually pretty nice for G5 modding. Doing a little test fitting: And cranked out a front panel harness today. I need to get some sleeving for it. Here's the Mountain Mods rear panel trimmed for the latch how I want it.
