    Anyone know the PSU/mobo pinouts on this one?

    I would be wicked-grateful!

    Thank you for the suggestion. That was one of the first sites I checked.

    I would love to find this info.

    It always helps if you let us know what you've already done. That way if you've already done something (such as checked ifixit.com)…then we can cross that off the list of ideas.

    The initial post didn't mention having already done some research…so if there is anything else that you've already done…please let us know…so we don't suggest it.

    1. I searched the Internet for the information, checking dozens (hundreds) of websites (I am not going to list all of the websites).
    2. I could not find the information.
    3. I registered at mac-forums.com.
    4. I found the "introduction" thread & introduced myself.
    5. I started a thread in the Apple Desktops forum.
    6. I received strange replies.

    My question is technical & very, very specific in nature. If you do not know the answer to the question, please do not post in this thread.

    What "strange replies" did you receive? You received two replies to your question both of which were from Staff Members.

    Keep in mind that you're here in a peer to peer user forum where folks volunteer their time. If we're not technical enough for you with our suggestions, then perhaps you might need to go elsewhere for your answer.

    That's not how forums work.

    If you want an answer from us, you're going to have to let us ask questions. There's nothing wrong with doing that.

    What you're not considering is (in my earlier reply)…I was trying to help you get an answer to your question…by helping you to formulate better more "information rich" questions. The more info you give us regarding your situation…the better we can help you.

    Your initial post (you have to admit)...was very very thin on information. Then when someone did suggest something (chscag)…your reply was…"That was one of the first sites I checked." If you had told us that info upfront…then we could have skipped suggesting it.

    Please be a bit more patient with your replies…we're just trying to help!

    Frankly that information is most likely not available unless someone has gone through the trouble of mapping out the voltages or taking apart a system. I doubt Apple publishes the pinouts and whatever is available for the older iMacs are from enterprising individuals with a volt or ohm meter..

    If you have either of those, perhaps you can try to figure out the connections, or at least the relevant ones you are interested in yourself..

    Again, not how forums work. Don't like it? Take a hike.
