Hey all, I've found various ancient threads on this topic, but I'm wondering if anyone has a more updated take on this. I have an old Mac G5 lying around , that only sorta works. It will boot up properly like 30% of the time. It's the 2003 model (the processor is not as accessible as later versions). Anyway I have an iMac now and I was thinking of taking the G5 apart and using the salvageable parts to make a bare-bones server. Anyone out there done this? Any tips on what to replace and what to keep? What products to buy? (preferably as cheap as possible) I mostly just like the look of the thing but I know G5s consume a lot of power. It's also loud as ****. So I'd like to resolve that if I can. Should I replace the power supply? What about swapping out the archaic IBM architecture with Intel? I'm admittedly a big n00b in this area so I would appreciate you explaining things to be like a big dumb baby. Any suggestions or helpful links would be greatly appreciated Thanks!
