[Case Mod] MurderMac - Completed/Final Pictures - Page 42

post #411 of 1251
I dont think that would work being that the voltage is controlled by the 12v on 3pin fan headers and being connected to both the supply and motherboard would always supply a constant 12v regardless. (even if its controlled by the ground the result would be the same)

PWM fans are so easy though. Not an option?


Theres probably a way to do it with a programable solid state chip or possibly something premade but thats something for someone far more experianced then I thumb.gif

Nahhh, I already have the fans... grrr... I can easily afford this and have TONS of places to put that PCB but almost nowhere to put a fan controller.

No that wouldn't work because molex connectors do not include an RPM line. The PCB you're looking at, although it has 3 pin connectors for the fans, only carries the 12V and GND signals. For that to work, you'll have to use variable voltage control.

Well that is frustrating... I do have a spot to put like an FC8 but it would take a little modding. I do have some ideas though thumb.gif

Okay, so I got the 24 pin cable shortened and the 8 pin power cable shortened as well. I need to buy some 8 pin PCIe male and female connectors and some more 6 pin PCIe male and female connectors to complete the SATA, Molex, and GPU's power cables. The ones attached to the PSU were too short so they need to be lengthened. I will do that with male and female connectors.

[rant] I am a member of tonymacx86 and I am beginning to get very frustrated with the site. For those of you who don't know, it is a site that helps people install OS X on their computers. It is all perfectly legal because you are using the actual software by Apple. However, their mods are the most insane butthurt bunch of lads on the interent. I made a post earlier on the site offering to sell a member an extra front I/O PCB for cheap on eBay and the post was edited. It is against the rules to sell things on the site but what I was doing was just letting a member know he could purchase it off site on eBay. I guess that's a no-no as well.

This isn't to mention that a few months earlier, my first account was banned simply for me saying, "I tried several forms of installation on my laptop, they ranged from the legit software install to different hacked distros, none of them worked." I was banned simply for saying I had tried installing using a distro. It is against the ToS of that site to talk about the installation of OS X distros but I didn't do that. Oh well, I was going to show them pictures of my mod on that site but after their childish ways of dealing with things, I am no longer interested. [/rant]

Whatever man, too bad they don't get to drool over this awesome mod biggrin.gif

I have one question however, how did you manage to get an even coat of paint on your back panel? I am doing my own mod and the paint blotched no matter what I did, I even used primer.

Epic mod, it is my inspiration haha

I had my case powder coated glossy black. I would suggest sanding it with a rough grit sand paper so it gives the paint a better surface to adhere too! thumb.gif

Get a build log going too!

Like I said earlier I'm looking into doing similar things with a Powermac G5. In terms of your PSU is there a reason you didn't look at low profile ones such as:
http://athenapower.com/node/180

Or even server PSU's like:
http://athenapower.com/product/power-supply/1u-2u/ap-u1atx30p8
(admittably I am struggling to find a server psu with 2 PCIE 6 6 (6+2) Pins.

Butthurt. The fact you used that word just makes my day. What a great piece of vocabulary biggrin.gif

Got any in progress pictures of the power supply? I'm interested in seeing your work since I've since given up on my G5 case tongue.gif
