i dont have a link handy but ... look into the Power CC sites ... as the 5500 uses the same pinout as the 630 (which is a common PCC mod) ...

it isnt much help since i wan

it isnt much help since i want to make my 5500/225 a desktop without a built in monitor, because the monitor has been playing up. It has a blue hue sometimes and takes a long time to warm up.

well then get yourself a 630 case ... the 5500 board should just slide in ... a 630 should be pretty cheap to find and save alot of hacking work ... the only thing you might need to do is the PSU mod that is needed on PCCs ...

You can also put the logic board in an LC580 (smaller AIO)

ShreveSystems has brand new in the box LC580's for a little more than $50.00 shipped in the US. Pretty good deal, slap in your 5500 board with 2 64MB sticks of RAM and a L2/G3 300MHz card and you'll be amazed.

or it will fit into the 64/6500 PPC Macs Towers. I have put my 5500 board in my Performa 638CD which I think is the same as the 630 and it worked.
