The cable is compatible with all G5 front panel boards prior to the LATE 2005 G5. This particular model has a different front panel board. Compatible front panel boards are Apple part nrº 922-5979, 630-4805 and 820-1560
When connecting the cable to your motherboard, pay special attention to the diagram above. Is very important you locate the right connectors for the power button and led (its labels may change from motherboard to motherboard). Is also necessary you connect the ?rewire header too (or use the provided jumper if your system doesn have it).
Firewire and audio headers have a “key hole” (blocked hole) so they can be connected in one way only. Be specially careful
conecting the USB header: make sure the pin with the embedded triangle goes to +5v (otherwise you can burn any device you connect to the port)How to connect the GND jumper
If you requested the ?rewire GND jumper with your order it will be in place when you receive your cable.
Otherwise, if you wish to add it afterwards (or you’ve taken it out for some reason, etc) you will need to connect it in a way that it runs from the free hole in the power button header to the pin 3 on the ?rewire header.
Remember, if your motherboard does not have ?rewire (AKA IEEE 1394) you need this jumper in place, otherwise the cable wont work.
Theres some considerations about the audio under OSX. The cable will ensure your audio gets routed from the internal port to the front panel, but if the driver you are using doesnt enable the internal HDA port then there will be no audio signal to route. Make sure your HDA kext (or whatever driver you are using) enables the internal HDA header. Some GIGABYTE Z68 and Z77 motherboards will need an audio sense jumper. This jumper should connect pin 7 and 10 on the audio header like shown in the picture below In other cases it will be enough to need to move the AUDIO SENSE crimp (inserted in the audio header’s key hole, PIN 8) to PIN 10 on the same connector. Audio sense function under OSX might need kext patching.
