#1825675 Custom made rear i/o G5

Posted by Surferpro on 10 June 2012 - 02:09 PM

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.

Hello, I got inspired with all the G5 mods, now i started designing the rear I/O and i will be making a PCB for it so i can mod my own G5 case. So far i found all the parts needed except the Optical in and out. The one that i plan on making will sit on the back facing outside of the case and not mounted sideways on the case screws. So far the design will include the ethernet, both FW's, 2 USBs and Audio in and Audio out. Any inputs and suggestions are welcome. Also if i see lot of interest in the idea, i might consider producing it and sell it to members, In order to do that i need at least 50 members willing to buy it so it can be made. Also tell me what will be considered a reasonable price for selling it. Thanks
