    Jaap's G5 Mod

    Done! Finally, the mod is done. It started in september and now i'm typing this post with my brand new pc. Sadly, it's from Win10, still waiting for Skylake to be supported without problems in OSX. I'm happy with the results. Particularly with the new top with vent for my watercooling. The...

    problem with on-off switch

    I was thinking, maybe it has something to do with a slight incompatability between the two versions of the G5 i was using. I'm using a case which had the blue-pcb motherboard. The front panel PCB had no cable but was connected directly to the mobo. Then i put in a frontpanel-pcb from another G5...

    problem with on-off switch

    It looks like it's a problem with the switch, can't get it to work. I ordered the Laser Hive kit, that will fix it. Also, i'm already missing my front-usb 3 port :mrgreen:

    problem with on-off switch

    Guys, i'm reassembling my G5 but i ran into a problem. When i press the switch, the PC switches on, but it's like it "keeps pressing", after a few seconds the PC turns of. Also, the switch doesn't give me a real 'click' feedback... Someone have this before? Maybe solutions? I have a Max. VIII...

    Jaap's G5 Mod

    A small update. I've started reassembling the G5. I have closed the PSU and mounted it to the bottom. Now it's waiting for the mobo, ram and processor.

    Jaap's G5 Mod

    I think it will be fine, but i'll see. If the temps are not what they should be, ill check wat happens if i drop the rad a cm. I'm sure i need an i7. I'm not building a machine for normal use or gaming, but for photo- and video-editing. I'll be using this system with Photoshop, which likes a...

    Jaap's G5 Mod

    Modding is a little slow at the moment. The big jobs have been done, so i'm slowly reassembling. I've installed a few blue led-strips. Just some cheap Chinese strips with a simple molex-connector. I've connected 'em together to a switch, because i don't want the leds on all the time. When the...

    Jaap's G5 Mod

    Thanks for your reaction. Your mod looks great, especially the way you fixed the back panel.Don't you think there will be warm air staying in the case?

    Take a look around this forum. I read a lot of threads here before i started. The best are these, these and these. Good luck with your mod!

    Jaap's G5 Mod

    It's almost two weeks since my last post - and i have been busy. As expected, drilling 2000 holes and deburring took me quite some time. But it's done and i'm happy with how it turned out. Working with a light in the case turned out easiest. The whole floor of the room is full of aluminium...

    The big thing started... This is some 20 minutes of drilling 2 mm holes... Quite some to follow.

    MB Backplate using old pc case

    It might be easier to use the backplate and the back of the old PC, i did that also. Then you don't have to measure everything, you just need to adjust the rear end of your G5. Good luck, Jaap

    Jaap's G5 Mod

    Hi again, time to show you my progress. First, my cheap-chinese-paracord finally got delivered and i finished the ATX-power cable. Now all the psu-cables are sleeved. I'm doubting whether i should use cable-combs, but i'll decide when everything is in the case. Next, i got the new fans for...

    Jaap's G5 Mod

    Hello guys, I've done a few things and i'd like to share my thoughts. First of all, i'm not going to mount the internal card reader. At this point, i don't think i can't get it right, and i don't want to regret it later. If i want to place it, i need to cut the front or the top, both of which...

    You could also connect the earth-wire of the new PSU to the earth-wire of the original PSU (that's what i did) or connect it directly to the case.

    Jaap's G5 Mod

    Little (phone) update. I installed a usb pin-header for a usb-bluetooth-dongle in front of the case. It's now in the back of the case, but i'd like it in front. Just hoping the aluminium won't act like a Faraday-cage blocking the signal. Again I used motherboard stands from the second G5 and...
