#1977734 Apple finally announces all-new Mac Pro

Posted by Baudouin on 21 December 2013 - 05:00 PM

Other tests with Macworld : http://www.macworld....or-finally.html http://www.macworld....mpressions.html one more thing : I quote Macworld : "It’s not black. The color of the Mac Pro’s enclosure is a lot lighter than you’d expect. Apple’s PR videos and images make it look like a dark, metallic gray—almost black. But it’s much closer in color to the new Space Gray finish of Apple’s current iOS devices. In fact, as you can see in our first-look slideshow, when a bright light or sunlight is reflecting off of it, the Mac Pro looks downright silvery".

To be honest modern replacement fans are preferred for a number of reasons: G5 fans have their own custom wiring, so you need to re-wire them (at least); they consume more current than modern fans; they are noisy as hell….. The power unit is generally not re-used as a unit (reasons: need to be re-wired as they are to a different standard; usually the G5 PSUs are not as highly rated -i.e. powerful - on the 12 volt line; re-using an 8 to 10 year old PSU is generally considered not such a great idea as component failure is more likely the older the PSU gets). However, it is common to do a "conversion" job and many people take their new ATX PSUs and re-body them into the original G5 PSU case. Often re-used and things to keep: The 4 screws for the DVD drive; The HDD caddy; The front switch panel and the small length of wire going to it (for re-wiring if you are into that). Sometimes re-used/re-purposed in pursuit of original looks: the original motherboard rear ports (for...

#1962403 PowerMac G5 Diagrams

Posted by Baudouin on 02 November 2013 - 10:09 AM

Okay, hey, I may have missed over it already, but with normal leads you can take the wires out of the plastic connector and move it to another without solder or anything.Is this panel's connector a different size so I can't just do that? Because people seem to be talking about soldering when they do it, and I feel it would be messier-looking that way. Also thanks for all the diagrams, they were wonderfully informative.You do not have to solder. Most people do because it is easier to do so. The different plugs contain different type of leads. It is not the size of the plastic connector that matters. Check if the leads are of the same type and size and you'll be good.

Nice MiniHack. I am jealous, I have one working Cube, another case and full of Cube parts, but not the money to buy the parts to build a Hackintosh for the moment, maybe later. And your build will be very inspiring and big help.

I was talking about the distance between each connectors, but Phunczz found out that with the MacPro sleds, the HDD's are not in contact with the Corsair SATA kit connectors . :(

Posted by Baudouin on 29 April 2013 - 11:08 PM

Having seen what incredible job MiniHack is doing and Porto's great job : I was wondering how could I use my three HDD's trays with the MacPro HDD harness cables ? I will have to build a back panel to attach the harness cables, ...I don't think the panel used by MiniHack and Phunczz would work for me, the 2x Corsair SATA 6Gbps Upgrade kit for 800D. Knowing Apple, the distances between each Harddisk are quite not standard.
