  • Infill G4 inside - does PCI slot exist and empty?

    Hello all.

    I wish to buy Infill G4, and thinking about removing the amplifier from it (will use more powerful external amplifier) and install my PCI sound card (SB0610). But I dont find any photos of the inside of the G4 and dont know does PCI slot exist and empty? Will thanks for information.

    PS: Sorry for my english.

    There is not an internal PCI slot even avaliable in the G4.

            I couldn't quickly find the post that had the link, but here was a .pdf I grabbed from another site.

              Very thanks. It is better than nothing.
              In this pdf I dont seen the amplifier - maybe it is located at the bottom of the case, below the motherboard?..

              PCI slot seem truly not exist. But on the page 6 it seem two unused connectors are present. At the right bottom corner of the metal star . I cant identify this connectors, which type they are?

                  You should be able to attach an image no problems. If anything you should be able to upload using your user images found in the UserCP drop down (at the bottom of the drop down) located at the top left hand corner of any forum page.

                    My question is still actual: what connectors are in blue square?

                      Without knowing what they are for, the connectors look like the one you find on the back of the DVD drive.

                        from the pictures it appears that if there are any expansion slots, then they are the smaller laptop type. if it's got anything it would be a mini-PCI or a mini-PCIe slot. either way you won't be able to use your PCI soundcard with it (unless there is some sort of adapter you could use?)

                          If it is any kind of PCI(e) slot, so it would be a smaller problem to find an adapter, I think.

                            Those are ribbon cable connectors. Could be for anything from button control to display.
