In Topic: How can I repair popped out G5 rivets?

Thank you very much.

Yes, when packing items, it's best to expect that the package will be thrown, dropped and squashed by the delivery company.

I will look into sourcing the tools/materials you suggest.

Tbh, if it's going to be a big lot of trouble to get hold of everything, I may just drill through the loose part creating a row of studs holding the base/feet to the case. I know, it's not the nicest solution, but it would definitely be the easiest.

In Topic: G5 Front I/O Cable

If you have the original cable (short female-female) that comes with the G5, you can use one of these to do a male-atx connector cable:

These are pretty easy to find. You need to cut the right size (18 pins) and solder the atx (power, usb, etc) cables to it. Then connect it to the original cable

Is not as clean as having the female connector but clean enough


Thanks for the tip.

Very very nice. Well done. Looks a bit alien.

Also, great job cramming everything in neatly.

Wow. What an interesting thread.

I never thought this would be feasible. Thanks for sharing your experience. It's nice to compare the cost of the separate parts.

That's a shame your not taking orders anymore.

Great idea though.
