    Awesome job!

    I want to do the same, keep it simple, fast and easy. Can you post the details of the cable for the front panel?

    Can I ask where did you get the "special" screws for the optical drive? My G5 case came without an optical unit so I don't have any.

    They are available on Ebay. Just search on "Apple Powermac G5 screws" and you will find them.

    Photobucket decided that hosting my images was costing them too much money and so asked me to upgrade my free account to one that would cost $400 per year. I decided to remove my 250 or so photos from Photobucket and host them myself. So... photos have been restored! :)

    I upgraded my son's CPU to an i5 3570 for $80 in April. However that chip has HD 2500 graphics, which is unsupported. No big deal since we were already running a GT 640. :) At any rate it, too, was a very nice upgrade for him since it has a turbo mode up to 3.8 GHz.
