    a1181 logic board in a G5 case
    Ok so I know it sounds weird but Im going to put an a1181 logic board in a PPC G5 case. Why? Because I like the case and I have this logic board. The only question I have is, should I or should I not ground the board to the case. Im using a mag safe power supply. Any ideas?

    You should DEFINITELY ground it! Motherboards automatically get grounded to the chassis by the screws that hold it down. I don't know how you're going to mount it, but if you can't use some existing holes, you'll have to run a wire ground.

    Anyways, post pics as you go...please!
