You can go one of two routes....

 

1. Create a Custom PCB board with all the required connectors. Without getting into too much detail this requires you to take some copper clad board, wiring designs, different acids and a bit of luck and brains to get it right. Not to mention the correct "Side mounted" connectors that apples uses. If this is the Route you want to go user zammykoo and youtube will be able to help. (Zammykoo made his own and youtube has instructions on making pcb)

 

2. A Faster and more sensible way of doing this would be to Cut off the rear of a stock apple motherboard and soldering wires and connectors to the leads on the back and routing those to your mobo headers. This was done already and you can find the link here: http://tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=76&t=11725

 

I hope that helps any concerns or questions you may have and may I wish you a good luck with your build!
