    What G4 motherboard would work in a B/W G3 case?

    Of course i realize that i could stick a G4 Zif in the one i have, but the motherboard i have has been giving me tons of issues.

    I believe so

    I think it will except for the rear panel, most of the connectors for the MB are in different positions. You'll have to find a way to swap the panels or cuting it away entirely.

    thanks for the reply, but i noticed that the ports won't match. so, i decided not to try that out after all, instead it would make more sense to just find an older Yikes G4.

    Thanks again, Ryan

    Any board will work with some tweaking/modding. Remember that it's just a case, and you can always fix anything you do to it, and you should be fine. Just cut away at what you need!
