    Custom made rear i/o G5

    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

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

    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.

    i will have to figure all the cost and time and then i will give you guys a price. I am still looking for the toslinks, i didn't find them anywhere.

    here is the design so far and i am still tweaking it, been busy with work and school for the toslink, i did not find the ports, so i am thinking to use couplers instead and i will see how it goes, if anyone knows where i can get toslink ports that will be great and helpful.

    the pcb will have the ports inside it and will be facing the ports rather than screwed to the side like the G5 motherboard.

    Custom made rear i/o G5

    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
  9. That looks interesting, do you have the specs and dimension for a G5 case?
