So, I happen to have a G4 mobo and processor lying around, not doing much, so why not assemble! I'm having some trouble identifying the mobo, though. I think its AGP graphics, but I'm not sure. Does say 890-1094-A © Apple Computer, though, so I hope that's helpful. The CPU it came with I know for sure was a 450 MHz. So, I have a few minor questions, but one major problem. Minor PSU. Reading this thread has provided me with some insight, but the current solution it presents here looks like a major PITA to do. Were they always like this? And I assume a 550 Watt PSU would do good as well? And furthermore, what was the power draw out of these old G4s? Graphics card. I would need to find one cheap. Preferably PCI as well as my computer with AGP might be using a different AGP slot (runs the last released Voodoo card), and preferably able to run two monitors, but it probably won't be that bad if it doesn't. Thermal Interface. I have the heatsink for the CPU (I was astounded to find the G4 CPU had a passive cooler ) but at the same time I would think that the CPU and the heatsink would need a thermal interface compound of some sort - I have a tube of Arctic Silver 5 around, I assume that would do the job? Anyways... I have an old IDE drive and SDRAM on the way. I'd also be looking out for an old G4 case to have some fun with as well. Major Now, here's the thing I'm worried about. In the attached image you can see that the capacitor labeled C61 is loose, its broken on one side and the other is just hanging in there. I assume I can soldier it back on? Never done that before, though, but I know if I don't fix it the machine won't run. Thanks for looking, sorry its jumbled. If anybody has any other thoughts/resources, please, lemmie know.
