I did this on my smurf and it works no problem. I used the Smurf's Power supply. The board fits ok too, nearly all of the Motherboard mounts are the same so it drops in no problem. Just leave off the back port cover untill you can make/get a new one. The only problem I had was the front panel board with the power switches and LEDs. I am not very good with electronics and my attempts to mod the Smurf's board and later to build an entire new one from scratch were not very successful. XLR8 has the plans to build the board from scratch as well as the pin-outs for both the smurf and sawtooth front panel boards.
