Excellent job. I have bought a G4 case and was about to start on my new computer. Your pics help a lot even though I can skip some of your steps.
They turn up all the time on Ebay for between £6 - £10. That's where I got the one for the G3 from.TommyNagz said:Niiiice! I wonder how could I get the front panel PCB for my G4, it didn't came with the case. Or else I'll have to find another solution for the power button on my Sawtooth G4
The size at red:spackley said:Not quite sure what you mean when you say height?
Do you mean the depth of the case from front to back or the height from top to bottom? or do you just mean the size of the G5 hard drive cage?
That's an interesting solution. Normally I don't like it when the backplate is kept standard just because you always have either the audio ports blocked/obstructed or you lose a slot on the board. On yours, you choose to lose the slot and then get it back again by making a special bracket for your wireless card. As in fact most mATX boards these days have the first slot being a x1 slot then you don't really compromise too much (and by moving the board "up" the door you have more room in the bottom of the case for HDs (or potentially a PSU or cooling).spackley said:[/url]
I also made myself an Airport card from an Apple PCI-e wifi card and a mini PCI-e adapter bought from Ebay, seen here next to the graphics card.
Due to the position of the PCI-e slot on the mobo I had to separate the backplate and make a small bracket to support the card.
