    It depends which 2.0G5 the mainboard is from - try matching Model Identifiers. Also be warned, without the rare-as-hens-teeth fan calibration CD (Apple Service Diagnostic 2.5.8 I believe), your fans will run at full tilt on the new mainboard.

    Thanks for the answer.
    I will give you the serial number from the new mainboard when i will have it.

    The part with the fans it's not a problem :)

    A simple Google search will find it. It's VERY easy to find.
