haha, dual 1.6 sonnet CPU runs GL about as fast as a geforce 2^^

no, it has the same difference than on the atxg4 website :)

0 0
0 0
0 0 (Ground instead of -5V)

This one is from wikipedia:



Massa = GND
Abilitazione = Power on


and this from G3 B&W manual



They look same

If can i find the original delta's psu datasheet...

ATX Power
The B&W G3 uses a power supply that's almost but not quite identical to an ATX supply.  The lone difference is that the wire which supplies -5V on an ATX supply (pin 18) becomes a ground wire in the B&W G3.  If you just plug in an ATX supply without any modifications, you'll short out its -5V output.
One way of dealing with this is to simply remove the original ATX supply from the PC case and substitute the supply from the B&W G3.  However, this means that you can't take advantage of the 300W or bigger ATX supplies, one of the reasons to do an ATX conversion in the first place.

The other solution is to snip or remove the -5V wire from the ATX connector.  Actually, I found an ATX power extender cable at a PC store, and snipped the -5V wire on that instead, to avoid permanently altering the power supply's own wiring.  You'll likely need an extender cable anyway. (I had a link here to a 12in long PCpower & cooling extension cable but they no longer list it. Check local stores or the web/ebay for these, they're very cheap.-Mike)
The G3 motherboard's power connector is all the way at the bottom of the case, and few PC ATX supplies have a power cable long enough to reach.  Here are pictures of the female and male ends of the extender with the -5V wire snipped out.

The -5V wire on an ATX supply is normally the only white wire in the cable, but don't count on it.  I downloaded the ATX spec the other day, and it was pretty careful to note that the color scheme was only a recommendation, not a requirement.  Make sure you snip the wire using the photo on the left as a reference.

Here's a picture of the modified extender cable installed in the system.

Maybe just splitting pin 18 cable in 2, isolating the -5 Volts ATX voltage and wiring that half cable from pin 18 to ground (any from 15 to 17 pins should ) works, but don't quote me on this. And please wait for any other user to report.

Also to discard if it the PSU is still working you should try:

 To reset Parameter RAM or P-RAM

 To reset CUDA button on motherboard

 To test the Battery on Motherboard all PowerMacs have AFAIK

Claims it works for G3 B&W and G4

Check https://www.applefritter.com/node/21786 and try to use The WayBack Machine/Internet Archive for those broken links.

AFAIK G3 B&W and G4 Sawtooth are the simplest to DIY mod an ATX PSU

for a plain OS9 folder 0,5 are fine.

but there are a few additional things which may only be placed into the systemfolder, too:

MAS plug-ins
RTAS/TDM plug-ins
Altiverb IRs
Fonts (including those which are in a "disabled" folder)

even if you use all of that you should still be fine with 5,0 for the rest of your life. :)

Thx i will look for a 120GB. The os first partition must be maximum 8192 MB (8GB) or smaller ? Realistically, if i put all my applications in an another partition, how many GB are really needed for a good and reliable os9 installation (system plus  extensions, control panels, other various thing not placeable elsewhere...) ?
