    Can you fit an extended atx board in a 2010 Mac Pro case?

    I have done that but in a PowerMac G5 case. In the Mac Pro you would probably have to discard the disk holders and palce your disks somewhere else. Here is a picture to show how small the case can look with a big MB I have a totally uncut case so had to place the MB accordingly. It was a...

    Power Led always on.

    Hello, I have also done a build with an intel server board a S2600CP. I had the same problem, power led always on. After some experimenting I found a simple solution. I connected the power led + to the HDD led +. Now it is on when the power is on. It is not blinking when the disks are...

    Wiring the power button Mac pro 2006

    I would strongly suggest not to split up the ground in 2 parts. Electrically it is not needed, and there is a risk of shorting the MB if you connect it wrongly. Here I am speaking from my own experience! On my G5 I connected the power switch and ground to the MB power on pins. The single power...

    Case Mod Powermac G5 LED front panel always lit

    Hi, I have successfully solved this with two different motherboards with a simple trick. Connect the power led cable to the HDD pin! First thing. There are 3 wires from the power and led button. One common ground and on each for power button and led. Do not split the ground in 2 wires to fit...

I also added a usb3 card. On the front I have working usb and on/off switch. To get this working I...

    PowerMac Mod: 2x XEON E5-2620 v1 - Intel S2600CP - 20GB RAM - Geforce GTX 750

    What a coincidence, two Peters build each a Powermac with the same unusual MB! I think it took me a moth to decide how I wanted to place the MB. I have a broken one that I used to try out different positions measure and made drawings, also some CAD drawings. I also wanted a completely uncut...

    PowerMac Mod: 2x XEON E5-2620 v1 - Intel S2600CP - 20GB RAM - Geforce GTX 750

    Hi, Nice to see your build. I have also done one with the same MB. I have more powerful processors E5-2670v1 and 128GB of RAM. Interesting to see that you placed your board high up and the power supply in the bottom. After a lot of testing I did the opposite, MB down and power supply and...

    First G5 Mod - Where to attach HDDs?

    Yes they are piled on each other. on the top I put 4 screws on the bottom to get some distance between them. Forn me it was no problem to discard the optical drive. I almost never use it. As I have a long PSU 18 cm and it is sittin some cm inside the case there was almost no space between the...

    First G5 Mod - Where to attach HDDs?

    I have had the same problems with my recent G5 mod. I have an extra large MB 13x12 inch. It makes the G% case look very small! In the end I decided to skip the optical drive and instead put a Icy Dock flexidock 2.5 hdd bay there. rotated 90 degrees. It fits 4 2.5 inch drives (ssd or hdd). It is...
