    Hey gang,

    I've got a 600mHz G3 iMac Logic Board that I want to reincarnate. I've read the websites that show you how to convert an ATX (pc) power supply to work with an iMac motherboard but I'm really not looking forward to several hours of soldering. I was wondering if anyone knows of an adapter that is for sale to do this? I also emailed Marathon computer (makers of the iRack) to see if I could just buy one of thier power supplies. No dice I would have to buy the whole iRack case for $400 >yowch<

    If I have to I'll break out the old iron but I am hoping for a shortcut.

    Mucho thanks :)

    I bit the bullet.

    Ok, I went and spent a few hours soldering. I did get it to work. I was amazed that the old beast actually fired up! :D
