  1. I recently bought two USB 3.0 ports and power buttons for the front panel of my G5. I spliced together the power button according to this guide. I'm having a problem with adding the front USB ports, I used a file to enlarge the firewire port to the size of the USB port. The holes are a little too wide for the USBs and the ports don't stay in. I tried to secure it with JB Weld Metal Putty, it failed. So I have to make something that attaches to the backside of the front of the case that can withstand being plugged in somewhat forcefully. I was thinking about using this, which would give it support on the back. The trouble is that I need to permanently attach it to the front. I was thinking about using super glue, nails or screwing it in. Any ideas on how I can do this? I know I'm doing a terrible job of describing what I'm talking about so I attached photos. Feel free to ask questions! Also, I want to do the same with the headphone jack; I'm having trouble finding a 3.5mm combo jack to front panel audio header cable. Does anyone know about something like this. I don't want to spend much. I can do some soldering if I have to. Thanks, AidanOnEverything
  2. I think I may just use an ATX Power Supply, I'm in the process of getting my non-working one replaced. I will try and figure out how I can fit my PSU in the G5, I will definitely consider Electronics Wizardy's suggestion. Good luck on your ATX conversion, Curious Pineapple.
  3. I'm not too familiar with server hardware, what do you mean by ATX rails? Also, splicing and re-pinning sound super scary to me.
  4. I'd prefer to have access to the back of the PSU but that's a great suggestion.
  5. Would you mind sending me a pic of your layout? I'm able to fit everything but I think I need to elevate the PSU to the flat part above the curve so I can screw it to the back.
  6. I’m currently converting a Powermac G5 to ATX. Because of the curve on the top and bottom of the case, I’m having trouble fitting an ATX PSU. I need to be able to access the power switch and plug on the back of the case. Last night, I thought, “server PSUs are slim, one of those might fit well”. After looking on Ebay, I found out that server PSUs are cheaper, higher efficiency and higher wattage. I also found some breakout boards online which I think would make it plug-and-play Here are my questions though; 1. Will this function basically the same as an ATX desktop PSU? 2. Is there a higher risk of damaging my components? 3. Could this burn my house down? 4. Does it have the right plugs for my build? I need these: a. 1x 24pin or 20 + 4pin b. 4pin c. 2x 8 pin (or 1x 8 pin and 2x 6pin) d. ≥3x SATA Power 5. Which Server PSU and/or Breakout Board should I get? (I need at least 600W, I'm not looking to spend more than $60 and I'll only buy a NEW PSU) 6. Is there a better way? Is there a cheaper way? Thanks for reading my rant! Aidan
  7. Hello LTT Forum, I'm taking a class called AP Research, for the class, I have to do my own research on a topic. The topic has to be feasible for me to research (I'm only in High School) and it has to be original, meaning that nobody else has done research on the exact same topic. What's something in technology that excites you? Why? Thanks!
