I have a case hack in progress and it was brought to a halt when I realized the power supply from the AIO Power Mac had to be attached to the CRT. I have access to a atx power supply. I have looked up imac to atx and started working on it when I somehow messed up the ps. I want to know if anyone has a diagram or map of the wires that run from the ps and their charges.

The hack will be turning two old SEs into speakers, but I have made room in the bottom of one to fit a 5xxx board (it pokes out a little). The full system will consist of two SE speakers (painted black with silver apples on the sides) , a monitor, and of course, a kb and mouse.

"atx pinout" should find you what you're looking for.

i need 5xxx/6xxx pin outs

I did my research and have a diagram somewhere of an atx pin out, but i need a 6/5xxx pinout. I tried googling it but didn't get anything, just imac to atx mods.

pinouts

I took apart an LC 630 CD DOS and noticed that the only thing powering the board was a regular +12/5 -12/5 leads (1 Red, 1 Yellow, 2 Black) The thing you need to bee concerned about is how to get the ATX Powersupply to start up

confusing

The brown wire confuses me. I thik it is a second ground, but it has it's own color so it must be different.
I post pics later

Sorry, I first typed a reply

Sorry, I first typed a reply pointing to pinouts for 5xxx, then I re-read your post and it sounded like you wanted atx pinouts.

Anyway, since Takky Color Classic's can use 5xxx boards, this diagram should help.

Looks to me like brown is GND.

Your gonna need to rig the so

Your gonna need to rig the soft power on the ATX supply. I'm sure one of the lines is the power-sense line, and the PCC pages should have hack info.

What if I...

What if I just hook up a switch to PS and leave the sense line open. On the other hand that would look ugly. Undecided I will make a piece for soft power. Thanks that is exactly the chart I needed. I should have thought of looking at PCC sites. My original project was making a Power SE, but it failed when I realized the moniter was not compatible with the new board.
