I have an empty 9500 case w/power supply. I'm wondering if anyone knows whether I can stick something other than a tsunami 9500 motherboard in it? A 6500+ performa series? 9600's? A G3? Are the power supplies standard and compatible with Mboards older than a 9500? Has anyone out there managed to "build" their own mac systems from "scratch"? Hate to see this unused case go to waste, I was thinking of using it to store all my extra hdrives and connect it to my pmac, but would find more enjoyment in building up a system from scratch. any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Search the back pages of the MacWorld, MacAddict, etc. Search for power supplies. Power supplies that fit multiple machines will be grouped together. The connectors on each power supply are unique to the batch of machines that they work with, which also tells you which cases they fit into, which tells you which motherboards you can use with them. If I am not mistaken, the Quadra 840AV (only Quadra worth owning) uses the same case design and power supply as the 8500 and 9500.

The case will not accept an 8600, 9600 or G3 motherboards/power supplies.

The 840AV is the best machine Apple ever made (that was what I said before I bought an 8600/300).

-good luck

What a surprize...the 840AV (68040) and the 8600/300 (604e) are both the last of the line.
