Trays are included with all our G5 kits, but if you just want a tray for a “no-cut” mod then we can supply these separately.
Laser cut from 5mm acrylic and cut to fit the G5 and to align and locate it via original G5 standoffs. This tray for G5s does not require you to dremel down the original standoffs, but instead the tray locates flat against the G5 case via some of the original standoffs outside the normal motherboard footprint.
Extra location strength can be obtained by screwing the motherboard tray to cut down standoffs within the motherboard area or adhesive can be used to stick the board to the case once it is correctly aligned.
Using original standoff locations to automatically position the tray makes it fit correctly against the original PCI slot positions. Note: if you are i tending to place the tray away from the PCI slots so you can use extender cables etc then let us know and we can accommodate this.
Two versions of the tray are now available – a mATX version and a full ATX version.
For those builders who decide that they do not want to cut the G5 rear at all, both of our motherboard trays are ideal as on their own they provide a neat way of fixing your board without needing to buy full conversion kits or to resort to gluing your board or tray into place.
M3 threaded standoffs and screws for the standoffs are included as well as some fixings to keep the tray in position,
Price: mATX version £30. Full ATX version £35. For purchasing and shipping of this item please email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be pleased to help you.
For combined backplate and motherboard tray kits with all the fixings to give a fully professional looking result please see the relevant G5 product pages.
The above shows a full ATX motherboard tray. This tray (and also the mATX tray) mounts to the existing screw points for the upper shelf as well as to up to 4 existing standoffs outside of the footprint of the motherboard.
The photo below shows the mATX version of the motherboard tray and how it mounts to the shelf screws. Please note this photo shows the tray still with protective coverings in place (you should remove these when fixing in place).
Here is a view of the ATX version in place inside the case and with a motherboard mounted on it:
All laser hive motherboard trays feature flame polished edges with rounded corners and strong threaded brass inserts that are provided with correctly sized standoffs.
