    Hey again... I have just added a link to my latest G4 Cube project on the first post. This is my first use of a Mini-STX form factor motherboard.

    Good modding,

    Just a note that I have added my latest project to the first post. This is my second Kaby Lake project and it runs Sierra 10.12.3 with a low power i7-7700T CPU in a ASRock Z270 Fatal1ty Gaming ITX motherboard and a Gigabyte GTX 960 2GB ITX GPU.

    Good modding,
    neil

    Again I have posted links to two additional projects to the top of the first thread.

    These are scratch build cases for Sky Lake and Kaby Lake.

    Good modding,

    Hello, congratulations for your work, it is definitely the clearest on this site!
    I have made all the connections described by you, everything works except for the audio.
    I did not understand if you connected the audio sense (15), in other articles the 15 connect it to pin 10 of the hd_audio connector.
    could you explain to me what the switch is for?

    The audio is a small bad of worms. I have tried several solutions over the years and currently recommend the one that I did on the SOS project; see post #8 of https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/neilharts-slow-roll-g5-power-mac-system-on-slides.129400/

    Good modding,

    wow, in the post that you reported me, replace the audio directly ...
    mmm .. I think I'll do without frontal audio ...
    so the solution with switch does not work?
    Thanks a lot for the answer!

    The solution using an external switch does work but is problematic. The problems are: where to put the switch, and when to use it. On some implementations, you have to pull the audio cable from the rear port before the front port will work (with or without the switch). And on some implementations you also have to go into the Sound Preference panel and select the front or rear audio port.

    On most systems you can just use the rear audio and be done with it. Also there is HDMI audio to sort out.

    Good modding,
