    Hello guys as some of you already know by my previous post, my Mac Pro 2008 is completely dead, judging from the symptoms I'm almost positive is the logic board cause I've tried every possible thing to my knowledge and I don't get any response whatsoever.
    I've decided get a Mac MIni server, And I'm just curious an open to suggestion of what can I do with the remain parts, can I use it to build a hackintosh and adapting the aluminum case(wich I love by the way), or should just sell it for what ever I can get?

    The remain parts are 2 super drives, 3 500 GB HDD, obviously the 256 MB ati video card, the 2.8 ghz xeon processors, the internal bluetooth, and the ram.

    Thanks in advance.:confused:

    I would recommend parting it out.

    Oh, and I sent you a PM.

    Did you test the power supply?
    Pretty easy to replace, if that is the problem.
    No doubt, you did check the PSU first.
    Bad voltages could cause the logic board to misbehave.
    But if it is a bad logic board, that is $600... probably not worth it.
    I just hate to see a MP bite the dust.
