In Topic: Custom made rear i/o G5

27 June 2012 - 05:15 PM

i am having a problem so far, the guy who designed and made the sample for me is in Europe and he shipped but i haven't received it and added the rest of the parts to it, i will be adding the USB and Firewire headers and give it some testing and make sure everything will work fine.

i asked if we can place an order of 50 units and i am waiting for an answer for the cost, and i will have to add the cost of ports from mousers.com

Nice, I'm currently making G5's to order so if there's anything I can help with in any way please don't hesitate to contact me. Im on here pretty much every day.

Just an idea:
Rather than screwing into the back of the case, you can get a tape (in the UK at least) called 'No More Nails - Instant Grab Tape'.
A 1m roll holds up to 50kg (I've had many conversations with the Mrs about sticking her to the ceiling with it)
This would give a very strong, electrically insulating and invisible bond between the PCB and the interior of the case.


i thought about taping and i will test it to see if it holds well.

If this could be made to accommodate the space that occurs between a standard m-ATX/ATX rear panel and the rear panel of the G5 case when a PCI card is mounted in the standard Apple PCI slot then it would enable a G5 m-ATX/ATX mod with NO external cuts at all!

If this is the case, I'll take quite a few off your hands if the price is right.


As you can see from the photo, i planned it so it can be screwed to the back of the case and not be blocking anything while mounting the motherboard, i saw from other designs that it was a problem when placing the motherboard and attaching the pcb.

Once i get everything setup i will install it and take more pictures.
