Quicksilver 800 MHz upgrades

(1/2) > >>

alphaTECH:
Just curious, what are my options as to upgrading the 800 MHz CPU in my G4 Quicksilver? I'm happy with 800 MHz, I think it's a sweet spot, but if I could chuck in a 933 MHz or higher and it was officially supported, well, that would be alright too!

Protools5LEGuy:
The more powerfull is the Dual GHz from QS'02, but you will need its heatsink or a dremmel.

QS'01: 733 little cache memory (compared to DA'733), Dual 800

QS'02: 800 (I think little cache memory), 933 and dual GHz

alphaTECH:
Thank you for the info! I might grab a 933 as I really have no use for dual processors.

Has anybody had any experience overclocking a Quicksilver? How far could I safely push my 800?

IIO:
for the QS (as opposed to MDDs) there were sonnet cards as proper solution, for boosts up to ~100%, single and dual 1,2, 1.4 and 1.6 when i remember right, the 1.8 model has been pulled one year after release because it went too hot.

in the cube and some graphit G4s you could go from 400/0.5M to 1200/2M with those options. the step from a 733/0M to a 1.4/2M is also a speed boost in that same area.

note that the 733 mostly sucks for not allowing huge disks at the internal IDE.
