hey guys, haven't posted much. it been lurking for a year.. I've been though many Mac mini's and currently own a 2011 early MacBook pro 15" i7 quad, ATV 1 and 3, thecus 7 bay raid system... so enjoy my toys. I felt like tinkering, so managed to find a partially complete powermac g5, dual 2.5, sadly it's an LCS unit. it's almost complete (or not?) missing ram. sd, hd, and video card. I purchased it to tinker and eventually gut and turn into a hackintosh case. I only paid 40$ for it, so not a huge loss. I verified the moisture pad under the LCS system, it is wet. I can see a fluid track from the single pump down to the power supply.. so far not looking good. I plugged it in, and powered it on. surprisingly it has power! all the fans turned on, white led the front turns on. red led near the front face plate. no beeps, white led not flashing. I can assume the power supply is working, can I assume motherboard is still good?? I guess I need some hope before spending any money on it. I will need to remove the LCS system, looks like I need a new pump or seals? thanks! looking fwd to this little project! by the way, how can I confirm if it's a late or early unit? SuperDrive is IDE, harddrive is sata, 8 ram slots.. single pump LCS..
