Where to make a hole in my G5?
on Mar 15, 2006 at 10:52:14 am

Hi.

I have a dual 2 1st gen with the 6800 that takes up a PCI slot in addition to the AGP, a Rocket RAID and a BlackMagic HD PRO card.

All well, except that I have to get 8 SATA cables into the Mac... -;))

I see two options.

1: To make a hole in the grill on the backside

2. To make an opening in the door.

Because the door-model will not involve risking to get metal particles on the mainboard, I'm leaning that way. I'll have to make a hole in the plastic case as well. But I wonder if this would destroy the fantastic airflow features of the G5?

Any ideas?

I would not do either.... but if I had to choose, I'd go with the back grill... just use a drill with a vacume attached.

Thanks,
Harry.

Hi,

Is there a SATA card on the market with 8 external ports?


Best Wishes,

Mitch

1. I did the Grill and it works just nice.

2. Not that I'm aware of, but it should have been! that is exacly my problem, I have the disks in an external
cabinet and have to get the cables in.

Done now.
Works.

Thanks!
