I have finally refurbished my G5 2.7 LCS, I know there have been lots of discussions here about doing this but I thought, if there is any interest, I would add my 2 cents. Here is a pic of the finised refurb, if anyone needs advice etc on how to refurb your LCS post a question and I will do my best to answer.

    Hey Buddy, I think I need your help.  I just picked up two 2.5 G5 Quad's the PCI-X with LCS's one already leaked and killed the Power Supply the other is working but with 1 dead CPU.  I wanna pull out the LCS from the dead Machine and Rebuild that LCS and Steal one of the Processors and bring one back to life with a rebuilt LCS so it so it won't die for a least a while.  I can download the instructions on how to do it but was hoping for a list of parts you purchased to make yours look bad ***.  I especially like the clear tubing can you use that all around?  Hope you can get me that info.  Thanks in advance.

    Just a passing note, the G5 Quads are not PCI-X, but PCIe.

    BD you are correct.  So used to typing PCI-X when I write about my G5...  Old Habits Die Hard, just like old macs...
