Update 06/04/2011

This are the cables Im making:

...and the cable in place:
Attached File  cable3_.jpg   837.76KB   3174 downloadsAttached File  cable2.jpg   871.28KB   2519 downloads

They're about 70cm long, all-covered with black nylon braided sleeve, with the apple 18 pin connector in one end and standard ATX firewire, audio, USB, power button and led connectors in the other.

Each cable is tested before shipping. If your motherboard doesnt have on-board firewire (AKA IEEE 1394) you will need to use the inlcuded ground jumper.

Z68 and Z77 Gigabyte boards will need the included audio jumper to activate the front audio connector. Probably other boards will need this jumper too. Its just matter of experiment a bit with and without the jumper. 

They cost 25€ a piece, including traceable shipping and jumpers. Cables are shipped from Spain.
I accept Paypal or international bank transfer. Please make sure you add your correct shipping address with your payment.

If you want one drop me a message here in the forum! Alternatively, you can contact me through my page. There I also host pictures of some of my mods, useful links, etc

IMPORTANT:
The cable is compatible with this front panel board (present in all G5 models except the "Late 2005" G5):

Make sure you have a similar one (there are a few more serial numbers for the same board). An easy way to check without taking the board out is to look for the 18 pin connector on the board (black square conector on the right of the picture). This connector is visible without the need of removing the board.

The solution for those who have the "Late 2005 G5" cases and want to use this cable would be to replace the front panel board with one from an earlier G5 model. It fits perfectly as the case's holes for the ports and screws are the same.

Once you extract the front panel board on the late 2005 G5 you'll end up with this (photo by rekd):

You'll need to unscrew those two tabs/inserts, and then the old model board will fit perfectly. The G5 front board replacement (Apple 922-5979, 630-4805, 820-1560) can be puchased at ebay or some other online shops.

Hi everyone,
Im about making a small batch of G5 front connector to ATX cables. So they will have the Apple 18 pin connector in one end and the standard ATX (1 pin power button, 1 pin power led, 5 pin USB, 2x5 Firewire, 2x5 audio) in the other end. The will be 60 cm long wrapped in cable sleeving and finished with heatshrinked rubber tubes. The cost of it still have to be calculated as I didnt buy all the components yet but I estimate to be around 20-25 euros plus shipping each cable. About the payment method: I wont take paypal unless the buyer pays also the commission paypal charges for reciving money (seems to be 3,4% + €0,35 EUR).

I'll be doing by 5 cables at the time


I would like to know whats the demand. If anyone is actually interested please PM me.

Cheers!


Today I recieved the most important components: 18 pin connectors


Hi BlackCH, I would love to have one too :(

I'd take one too.

EDIT:

As far as I know, there are different types of connectors, though. Depending on the model.

What's the shipping for Belgium ? which is in Europe : a lot but exactly ?
And what if I want to do it myself ? where can I buy the connector ? I tried to use IDE cable but there is too much space between each pins.
Where do you buy the plastic connector from ?

thanks
