    Thanks for the kind words mate, be sure to bug me anytime if you need any technical help.

    Space is dependent on the size of your PSU. I'm using a 1220W PSU (180mm long) and needed every spare millimeter I could find so I'm 45mm (or 1 3/4 Inches in your speak) from the rear which was just enough to get past the chassis bolts. Currently a very precise fit. When I had a standard PSU which normally measures 150mm x 150mm I would have been something like 55mm+ from the back, this also allows for any changes in cable management later on. hope that helps.

    Sorry for the delay in response. From the view you've given starting from the left going to the right. Active - The Brown (or Red) wire Earth - The Green & Yellow (or just Yellow) wire (very important) Neutral - The Blue (or Black) wire ------------------------------------------------------- Something to remember! the only pin you need to get right is the earth. Even if you accidentally crossed the Active and Neutral wires it would work as you are dealing with an Alternating Current (AC power), however best practice is to follow my guide above. Again as I've advised in the past if unsure seek assistance.

    LOL got a 1st Gen G3 at home that I've ben eyeing off for some mods also... still yet to find a good idea for it... I think it'll be black also. StealthServer perhaps ?!

    I think you're talking about the mobo tray! its the Lian Li PC6X... I cut mine so i could get a proper fit around the latch and other areas.

    Your questions don't seem very direct. I did the mods in steps improving as a went along (see all the pics). What have I used? In what regard? Tools, materials? My computer specs can be found in my sig. Another case... not sure I understand the question.

    Yeah... Another update! Got the RAM cooler - must say it is well built The RAM LEDs light up the fans which give a nice effect on the fan blades The new side view At night... Arrggghhh Lights A lil more side on with a low light exposure out of the lot I'm actually quite of this shot (Download HighRes Shot HERE) open in photo view using full screen, it's awesome. Enjoy

    Hey again, Since getting all my memory installed I've noticed that there's a nice amount of heat pooling between all the DIMMs then I got to thinking "It's mod time again" but how to design a RAM cooler that would complement the rig as a whole. Then I found this which is made by the same company (Crucial), personally I think it'll be a great addition plus it was designed to be used with my memory.

    My Hackintosh G5 Case Mod.......yep another one

    More or less that's the component I used and from there I simply cut the end off an angled IEC lead... my earth, active and neutral wires are all soldered to the three pins... since Earth is common I used the screw threads as a means of grounding the chassis (verified continuity); Example: this is an old shot but you can see that there's thumb screws, these act as my earth conductors... if you're going to use this method please be sure to do a continuity test. I initally made a small IEC link cable which goes from the PSU to the chassis which I had to shorten recently due to size of the new PSU Example: Old IEC New IEC can't even be seen! and uses only 2cm of wire per pin due to space restriction as I'm very close to the chassis (pic is a special upload for you ):

    The PSU "Link" cable in that pic is made using heat shrink which you can buy at electronic component stores (think radio shack but in your area). When making these kinds of leads make sure you're aware what you're dealing with, there are there wires typically, Earth, Active and Neutral - if you are not savvy in that area maybe seek outside help just to be safe. As for fitting a standard PSU in place of apple's unit, it can be done but this isnt something i've tried personally, first thing to comes to mind for me personally would be modifying your PSU and striping back the casing so you can keep the G5 aesthetics. This is the internet! if you've thought of it chances are 1000 other people have also, just depends if they've blogged it Looking at your earlier posts; that nasty scratch/dent can't exactly be patched up be be made unnoticeable unless you plan to paint the case.. if you are planning to do so I'd say give it a sand until even, apply some filler to to level the surface (i think some metal epoxy will do the trick - I use JB weld) sand again once cured and then prime before paint... but that's me. All the best

    UPDATE TIME...AGAIN. Touch dry DVD-ROM drive panels baking in the hot Aussie sun. Finished product before install. PSU and matte black optical drive installed after more Dremel action. Kingwin 1220W Mach 1 PSU, this will be more than enough power - this thing has active cooling also, the sticker on the side is the chart detailing this. Front awesomeness so you can see the RAID array.

    Sorry Guys, more updates. Was testing out the new PSU, also bought a new DVD drive and modified the activity LED... I'm going to paint this drive matte black also so it ties in with the case an PSU. Something I realized when I got the DVD drive is that there's a smiley face (is upsidedown in this pic), I found that rather amusing.
