    I have a dual 500 blue & white G4 (gigabit ethernet model) and I want to move it to a new case with quieter fans and a new power supply (my second one is on its last legs).

    The motherboard kinda looks microATX sized (though I haven't measured it), and the mobo power socket looks standard. Does anybody have any experience with this sort of project?

    Thanks

    You could do it quite easily if you have a knowledge of computer building, just take the measurements of the motherboard and find an adequate case,

    the standoffs are slightly off you'd have to mod the case, also the psu requires a 28v line so you'd need another mac one (like a quicksilver one they are better), you could also replace the fans in the case.

    I forgot about that site, thanks Hector. Ouch, hope there's a way to get around the PSU requirement...
