 ;D welcome to the 933 club.. one of the best macs ever! almost as powerful as an MDD without all the MDD hassles..

i really think they should have kept the design the same... imagine if they had just moved to standardized power supplies + kept the DA build and forgot about the dual cd drives.. tbh i think that is kind of stupid to try to put 2 dvd drives inside the tower.. 

whoever designed the MDD needs a slap :D

Those little shinny disc things were all the rage back then! ;D

I was a bit surprised at the noticeable speed difference when I popped the 933 in there... Doesn't seem like a big jump from 867 but it certainly seems 'peppy' now!! haha! ;D

Just need to sort out my internal optical drive issue and I'll be off to the races! 8)

I have tried to swap in two different  dual 1.0 processors in to my 933Mhz machine but can't get the machine to boot. Is there some other hardware adjustment that must be made? I thought this would be a simple swap.

the adjustment ist called "use a computer hardware which supports two processors."

otoh, you probably wont even get an apple branded dual 1.0 to run in a dual 800 machine.

I have an PowerMac G4 Digital Audio original 466 and upgraded it with the CPU and heatsink of a Quicksilver '02 Dual GHz. I had to add a fan and the +12Volts mod on a leg of the daughterboard.

There is a dual GHz MDD whose CPU cant be used on QS and pre QS.
