Hi. Great case mod.
Can you put some more photo of the pwm controller and how its wiring?
Thanks a lot.

Printed on the back of the fan you can see the pin names, as they are black wires I just buzzed them to the plug ends
I grabbed 12v from a molex to floppy cable plugged directly to power supply and connected them as shown below.
GND -> GND- >Power - & Motor-
VCC -> +12v-> Power +
O/P - >not used
VM -> PWM-> Motor+
Personally I would no use either in the Mac Pro case as they are both ATX and you will find they are more trouble than they are worth unless you need the extra PCI-e slots, I would look at the m-ATX boards like the form factor I used ...I'm in the doubt between these 2 MotherBoard
Gigabyte Z390 AORUS PRO WIFI or GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS ULTRA
Will I still need to buy this wifi card that you mentioned?
- Broadcom BCM94331CD 802.11a / b / g WiFi card + Bluetooth 4.0
- BCM94360CD / BCM94331CD to PCI-e 1X Adapter
I'm trying to mount this configuration in the same Case:
Mobo: Gigabyte Z390 AORUS PRO WIFI or GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS ULTRA
Processor: Core i7-8700K
Cooler / WC: Corsair Hydro Series H100i PRO
Memory: Ballistix Sport LT 32GB (2 x 16GB)
SSDs: SAMSUNG 970 EVO PLUS 500GB and SAMSUNG 983 DCT Series NVMe PCIe M.2 22110 960GB
Source: CORSAIR RMx Series RM1000X
VGA: Sapphire Radeon NITRO + RX 580 8GB GDDR5
Case: MacPro 2008
Yep i wanted to use the original center tray and hard drive mounts which you cannot with an ATX also the extra PCI-e slots on the ATX motherboard don't line up with the case slots as you can see in the images on that link. Where will the powersupply be bolted too?I've seen in another topic, which uses a motherboard of the same size that I want to use.
It's going to be tight in MacPro's case, but I think it's going to fit everything I need.
One thing I want to try to make it work, too, is the front panel.
So, in the link that I sent you, it's an ATX motherboard and they managed to put the 4 HDDs, I know I'm going to lose some PCI-Express.Yep i wanted to use the original center tray and hard drive mounts which you cannot with an ATX also the extra PCI-e slots on the ATX motherboard don't line up with the case slots as you can see in the images on that link.

Have fun.. I have USB3, audio and power button with Led working on the front panel but i didn't use the original IO board..
