This is a good article. If you have a PowerMac G5 with a GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL graphics card and wish it wasn't quite so noisy, check it out. Also, it's about time we saw an article from MacBidouille (HardMac is the English translation).

MacBidouille is awesome, as always. The pictorial instructions are great, and I'm thankful for their english/hardmac version.

I have to keep track of their site more...

thanks for the submission, whoever sent it in. I wonder when ATI's card will be released that can drive that 30" monster... they previewed it already, so we know it exists...

That is a well done article. It has a good explanation along with the pictures. Should be very easy for those that are mechanically inclined.

I'm surprised that they didn't choose to cut the NVidia-provided slot-cover in half, to secure the card better.

A few minutes with a Dremel and cutting-wheel would take care of this problem and look better than what they put together.

Even better, the fan maker should include a replacement double-wide panel with a cutout/duct aligned with the fan's exhaust. Cutting your own panel is all fine for a scratch-build upgrade, but not for a commercial upgrade kit.
