So...  You've taken a lot of G5 iMacs apart have you Martin?

You do realize you have to get to the *bottom* side of the board first to 
replace them, right?

Has anyone got a broken G5 iMac spare?  I'd *love* to see Martin get into 
it and replace the 5/6 caps in question 10 minutes.


(if you want to do a bit of research and reconsider)
