    My emac made a loud pop and blue flash....
    So I'm considering swapping my hard drive and super drive into a working Imac, both machines are the 800 MHz PowerPC G4. I have searched the forum for specifics on this and have come up empty handed. After looking at the take apart tutorials I'm not worried about the actual dissasembly part I even have all the tools in my tool box, I just don't want to take them apart to find out the components are miss matched. Any advice would be great.

    P.S Where do I find Thermal paste?
