    Nothing new, it was always possible, but no one has done it succesfully, including Sirhannick.

    Get few replacement CPUs first. You will need them considering your soldering skills ;)

    Soon to be poking at resistors.

    I am at the iMac installing OS X, only because Debian didn't work.

    I will overclock, but only if it can be done without removing the mobo, if I have to remove I might see overclock. EDIT: Removed wiered stuff, wayyyy too much DMT...

    It is a 1.8GHz that is so slow I wanna throw it out the window.

    Even if you get it up 50% to 2.7 GHz (not gonna happen, by the way,) it will still be slow.

    Don't.

    No matter how much you overclock any PPC Apple Machine it will still be SLOW.

    Great hobby machines these days, but new hardware just blows them out of the water.

    i wont OC any G5 machine, not for the low difference, is just for the reliability, the G5 machines are too weak even for the long term run of their stock processors.

    Give it to me instead :)

    1.8 Ghz is not that slow. I mean it is slow. My ibook feels aged after I use my awesome black macbook, but hey, it works! :D and it is fast enough for my needs :D

    Well, it seems pretty quick, but I can try if anyone wants me too.

    Don't put your hardware at risk, it really won't run that much faster.

    We are at the point where a 350 dollar gateway tower blows the hell out of even the best of the G5s.

    No point in ruining them by trying to OC

    I don't think that gateways are made anymore. And the G5 still beats my HTC One.

    Gateways are still made, though I wouldn't buy one.

    I saw a gateway tower at a local PC shop, AMD A8 APU 6 core. 8gb DDR3 ram 1TB hard drive, the APU CPU/GPU destroys a 7800. Blu Ray burner, 2 year warranty. In a mid tower with a 370 watt PSU, and PCIE 16x 3.0 slot. And extra power connectors. All this can be yours for 430 dollars, and it will blow away any g5 a couple of times over. While being small and reliable. And quiet.

    I like my G5 but its just s hobby machine these days. They simply will never be as fast as new hardware, tho I enjoy tinkering with mine. But not to the point of destorying hardware.
