here's an interesting fact about the GC: lately i've been messing around with the GC power regulator, trying to figure out what voltages the GC needs. During my tests I found out that the power regulator puts out 1.9v, 3.4v, 5v, and 12v. later I'll test and see which one of those voltages the GC actually needs and I'll test the draw on them.
btw, spongebuell/gannon/abbibi (even though I don't think he'll see this....) for the motherboards page on PoD the it says the GC voltage needed is just 12. maybe you can add those other voltages to the 12v. you could put them in parentheses
just a suggestion........

Finally some pics!!!! Here's my vacuum form table, as you can see it's a real simple design. Also there is my modified GC mb and the li-poly batteries I'm using. Also there's my workspace, which I just cleaned up and organized! (kind of) Enjoy!
Here's the vacuum form table.
Here's my workspace, complete with a tv for making the GC still works when I modify it. (or for playing games....)
Here's the GC power regulator board, modified to be smaller and wired to the GC board.
Here's the modded GC mb. as you can see it looks a little different than the one on gamesx.com or PoD. I removed all the ports to save room.
Finally here's the li-poly batteries I'm using. This is one set for 14.8 @ 2.2 Ah and I have the other one somewhere for the other14.8v @2.2 Ah.
