Right...fan speed control.
I completely discount the video card arguments, as I don't think they are valid.
BUT, a G5 with its fans running at full speed would be most annoying.
So...TWO issues. One that's easy to solve (install a network card), and another that would require some development work.
BUT, how much difference can there be between fans speed control on AGP G5s and PCI-E G5s?
And, if I had to, I could alter the water cooling system of a G5 with a hardware monitor to control fan speed.
Give me a port that adjusts the fans to run full speed, and I'll have a separate hardware controller built in a couple of weeks.
Its the kind of hacking I'm good at. Relatively simple.
