Well, I finally got bored with not being able to access my Hack Pro's rear motherboard USB & network sockets, so it was time to break out the dremel!!!! Still not quite finished, I need to make a back plate to finish off the look of the sockets. Note: I will be removing the mouse & keyboard sockets from the motherboard, as I never use them.
I posted a link for MacPro cases for sale on ebay, I've bought one and it should be with me tomorrow. you mentioned on the first page you'd post ur diagram for the powerbutton? i would love a copy of that. also was it difficult to find and fit a PSU to fit flush with the back of the MacPro case?
thanks for your help.

The usb cable is actually a sata cable soldered to a USB header cable. See Here:
The PSU was really no problem to fit as all Std PC PSU's will fit. I fitted a 1000w PSU which actually was a bit of a problem as it is long front to back and had to remove the fan and housing at the top of the case - not recommended. Many cut fingers later, this really is a pig to remove. Better go for a short PSU if you can.
I am currently away from home, but will have a look on my hackintosh as I am sure I have a pic of Zapro's pinout in my docs folder on that computer. If I have, I will post it up tomorrow evening.
