Bingo, that is what I was thinking. The air-cooled models use separate heatsinks.
So you want to mount a heatsink from an AGP air cooled G5?
Cos, all air cooled PCIe G5s come with only 1 CPU (and I would suspect with only 1 heatsink).
That was the question, is the form factor of the early and late G5 similar enough to do that.
I have a 2.7 AGP model without cpus, but haven't pulled the cpus from the quad 2.5 yet to find out how similar the mounts for the boards are.
