Hi everybody :)

I have a problem. I bought a PC quadro FX 4500 which I flached using a PC to run into my Power Mac G5 quad.
I used nvflash 5.63 and I folow the Mac Elite thread (nvidia general flashing).

But when I start the PM, here is what I can see :


And maybe twe minutes after, the fans begin to spin full speed.

Can sobody help me ?

I already try to flash it back to PC (it worked fine) and then to flash it again for PM and the issue is still the same…

PS : sorry for the english, i am french so I make some (a lot of ;) ) mistakes.

You bought wrong version of FX4500. You need one with memory chips on both sides - with flat aluminum radiator on underside.

I believe they work fine in 1,1 and 2,1, but not supported for any OS over 10.7.
