I found the article on xlr8yourmac for 8600 and 9600, but these machines dont seem to use the same power supply as the 7600. has anyone converted a 7600 to ATX before?

Easy Way.

Just keep the mac power supply plugs with a inch or two wire length
off the original power supply and solder the corresponding atx wires to the
wires from the original power supply plugs.

Put some insulation around the wire solder joins of course.

Use the pinouts below plus you need a
small circuit for switching the atx power supply on.

Heres my thread on it

ok I did it. The mac works wonderfully, now I just need to install some kind of OS, maybe NetBSD or something. Since the mac is already custom, I want to go all the way...
