Incorrect Hardware

Postby whooguyy » Tue Aug 30, 2016 11:27 pm

I recently bought the parallella cluster case and the 5V connector does not seem to be the correct one.
As shown in the pictures below, the outlet is too large for hole provided and does not line up with the screw holes on the case.
Also, when I try to attach it the way the it says to assemble it (https://github.com/abopen/parallella-cluster-case) the holes are 90 degrees off.
Is the connector something that has been changed recently? Has anyone else ran into this with the cluster case? Who would be the best contact for something like this?

Hi,

As luck would have it I've just pulled my case apart to replace one of the Parallella boards :-)

[BTW, I think this Ground Electronics case is pretty good]

HTH,

Tony.
