    From MacBidouille:

    "After Promax and Wiebtech, Sonnet should announce at the AppleExpo an Internal Drive Mounting System for PowerMac G5. Its name, the G5 Jive.
    This system consists of a custom metal base plate and mounting bracket, mounting screws, three internal SATA data cables, and a custom-designed 3-drive SATA power cable; in addition to the support for two internal HDs available by default in a PMG5. G5 Jive mounts in the space at the bottom of the case beneath the optical drive and its installation has zero impact on PCI slots and adapter cards, which is a key point also for many users.
    The system includes all necessary mounting hardware and cables but the required Tempo-X eSATA PCI-X card is sold separately.
    The price should be around 120US$.
    We do not know what will be the impact of such a system on the air flows in the PMG5, we will have to see the final design to evaluate its interference with the cooling system."

    Are you advertising, or asking for our opinions?

    Ah, no Honey, I'm not advertising.
    This is something that will be of some use to fellow G5 owners. But you're still special.
