PART 21 - Capacitive input Here are the details of my capacitive input sensors I used copper tape stuck to create the two sensor, these were stuck to a sheet of plastic. The sensors were placed underneath the main PSU, the photo (below) is viewed from the font of the computer, where the sensors are to the left and right of the main apple...

I haven't done, a IMac G4 conversion, but have used the NUC in a build, so can answer your questions. So YES you can use either 5V source on the NUC with two caveats. 1. Power Rating - How much power do you need to draw ? Remember the connectors on the NUC were designed for specific purposes, and trying to draw more power could damage the NUC....

I would try eBay for copies of Leopard. Yes it would be possible, you need to read through the entire thread, here are a couple of the main ones to read. Note: To make it work, you need a PSU capable of 3.3v 12v and 24v to power the LCD and inverter, and also a brightness controller. ...

I am sure its possible, but not needed for my build. I think NUC fans run at 5V, so you would need a power transistor to switch a 12v source from the PWM signal on the nuc. The big difference with G5 fans is the PWM input carries the main power input. See this post for everything I know. ...

How are the temperatures of you HDD. Reason I ask is in my (only) scratch build I located an optical drive under the motherboard, and have had reliability issues with it. I am assuming this is heat related. HDD reliability will be affected by heat. Good build BTW Kiwi

Part 20 - Temp Inputs My original design called for two TMP36 temperature sensors, to monitor and control fan speeds. I Tested this over the last few days, and basically couldn't get it to work, temperatures were all over the place. The solution was to replace the sensors with DS18b20 sensors, the major difference between these two sensors...
