    Yes I have a Apple SATA shelf harness here in front of me. The power to the drives is via the 8 pin Molex. Some people have found the mating connector on Mouser's web site and build out a power solution that way. I cut off the 8 pin Molex and attached a PC style harness (solder splice).

    Hello!

    I am working on getting the front panel of an old Mac Pro tower to work with my little NUC Hackintosh. I have the pinout of my front panel board, I have already followed your above guide for connecting the left handed SATA to the usb 2.0 header but wanted to know what the 12v power was for and if it was possible to make a pinout to just go from the front panel to my front panel header on the NUC board.

    Here is the pinout on my NUC board:

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Hey Mooner any chance you can fix the photos that are missing on post #14? I'm trying to build a power cable for the front panel and your photos would help!

    Sorry to drag up an old thread but since you cut on the drive bay bracket, maybe you can help me. How do get that bracket out? The one that the drive sleds attach to (2010 mac pro). In my case, I just need to take it out and make the hole for cables bigger, then put it back in.

    I just do not recall the details now. You do need to remove the sliding latch at the front of the top shelf... search for detail on this and the same steps apply to a G5 Power Mac. Then remove all of the round nuts at the back of the shelf to the rear/left panel. There are also nuts or screws that need to be removed at the center fan bracket.

    Good modding,
