Wanted for de-liquidcooling a G5 for research.  Any and all broken G5 processors with heatsinks.  I'd really like a liquid cooled one, so I don't sacrifice my tower's to learn how to disassemble it.

Remember, looking for broken, and cheap, as this is for research.  Paypal fundage available for the right offer.

Try Apple authorised service providers. They should have some busted ones floating about.

Yeah, I wish.  Sadly, they're all exchange parts.

True, but some G5s can run on just one CPU. This is much cheaper than replacing one if you have one go bad.
email a company called AMSYS. Whether they'd let you have one I don't know, but I guarantee they have a ton. But they are in the UK. Otherwise, see if you can find an Apple dealer who is authorised to train other service providers. They have to maintain a pool of faulty macs to train engineers on.
