I need a water block for a G5 Dual 2.7.


Whilst removing the LCS for refilling I broke off one of the 2 plastic connectors. I know it's a long shot but if anyone has a dead G5 mac or a spare water block I will be eternally greateful.


I will obviously pay for shipping and whatever you want for it.


Many thanks.

    Hey, I got a leaky 2.5 Quad Cooler that killed my Machine.  The water block is your if you want it.  I'm in So. Cal. if your in the area you can pick up or I can ship it for whatever it cost to send FedEx Ground.  Send a picture so I know which part exactly you need.  Hope you have better luck fixing your Quad then I did.

    Thanks for the kind offer, my mac is a dual 2.7 not a quad so the fittings are a little different but I appreciate you taking the time to contact me.


    Thanks Anthony

    Hey Skorpan, If you got it why don't you tell me the part number you need.  I have the 2004 Quad PCI-X not the later 2005 with two water blocks it might be the one you need.  This is a photo I found of my model on the web but I can verify if you got a number or I can take pics.  Since its hard to tell from this one I found on google images.  Don't hurt to double check.

    Here are the Photos of the Water Block.




    Hope thats what you need if not.  I tried.

    Yes, that's the same LCS I have, what I need is the plastic two port connector which sits under the heat sink. Here is a picture of it.


    It will mean draining the LCS to get it off (if you're not sure how to do it, I can help) but it only takes about 10 mins.

    I'm not sure if you are aware, but I am in Stockholm but will obviously pay for delivery etc. If you think this is too much trouble I understand but if you can help me out I would really appreciate it.


    Best Anthony

    Its cool Anthony, guess I'll send via USPS.  I was just gonna ship the whole dang thing but that might be a lot more Money, so I guess I'll take it apart this weekend and try to ship it out on Monday.  Have no idea when it will get there.  California is kind of far from you. email me your address.

    Thanks so much, if you need any help removing the part, let me know, but if I may give you a tip, it is better to cut the hoses off instead of pullig them off, it was pulling them too hard which broke the connector off. It's made of a hard brittle plastic which can break easily. I have a PayPal account or I can send you the cash for the delivery, please let me know which is best for you. My address and email details are:

    Thanks again, and thanks fore the help.

    Hey Anthony just finished taking the cooling system apart and I got your parts out with no damage.  upon investigation it seems that both O-Rings failed.  So not sending those but I'm guess you were going to replace those anyway.  Here are the pictures of the part.  Let me know if you need anything else from that cooling system except for the big metal plate that everything bolts to, kind of broke a bolt in it while taking it apart so threw it away.  Anyway I'll mail these out Monday.  Best of luck. -Fred

    Hi Fred,

    Those blocks are a sight for sore eyes, I can't tell you how much I appreciate your help, I don't need anything else from the LCS except the blocks. Let me know how I can pay you and if you ever get to Stockholm there's a few cold ones waiting for you.


    Best regards


  • YZFNYC Level 1 (10 points)

    Glad to be of help.  I'll take to the post office tomorrow and see what they charge to send these to Stockholm.  As for the cold ones...  I'll hit you up if I ever make my way out there.

    Your Item has been shipped.  This one is on me until I get to Stockholm.  I'll take payment in beer.  Enjoy

    Hey Anthony, Just wanted to see if you received the LCS blocks yet?  Just Curious.

    Hi Fred,

    Yes I got them, thanks again. Check out this link to see the finished result. My LCS is working great again and quiet as a mouse.
