    Is there a known, understood, technical explanation for why A/UX cannot be run on the Quadra 630?

    I'm a far, far cry from being an expert—perhaps A/UX-curious would be a better label—but it is a very restrictive OS. In my initial curiosity, I was led to this very useful page: https://www.aux-penelope.com/hardware.htm It outlines the compatible hardware architectures and the minimum version...

    Supported PowerMac 6100 L2 sizes?

    From looking the last few years for a cache for The PCI PM range, the 1 MB cache appears to be just that: a unicorn. A member sent me a PowerLogix 1MB cache, but something on it is faulty—doesn't even chime with it installed—so I was sadly unable to test it. FWIW The largest I've found (for the...

    PT Pro/SCSI2SD v6 Escapades - Part II

    Oh, sorry, I meant both instances. I had two controllers: one SATA one ATA/66

    Wombat (650, 800) board overclocking limitations

    This week has been kind of crazy and the weekend has had little 'rest' in it. I'll hopefully have some time this coming week to get the socket installed, flash the ROM code and give it all a try.

    PT Pro/SCSI2SD v6 Escapades - Part II

    I'm actually impressed you actually were able to get a CF card to boot at all, now I'm thinking about it... I couldn't get my IDE-CF adapter to do anything other than not boot when it was plugged in: CF - adapter - IDE / SATA bridge - controller

    PT Pro/SCSI2SD v6 Escapades - Part II

    This all has the whiff of the same sort of IDE controller issues I was having my non-pro PowerTower... I tried multiple controllers and would have this same disk activity issue. Don't have a Sonnet, but I've tried an SIL3112, with and without a bridge, a Mac ROM IDE/66 controller and both...

    Wombat (650, 800) board overclocking limitations

    Will do! I'm still putting off desoldering the filled through-holes on an actual Wombat board, even though I've practiced (with a dead 4400 board) enough to feel okay with moving to a working one. I've got my ROM socket ready to go, so that's my last excuse for not moving ahead : P

    UMAX SuperMac C series CacheDoubler

    That's neat! I wondered who picked that one up :) Hopefully you get it up and running again.

    A 'once and for all' declaration regarding L88M mask MC68040 CPUs

    A gentle bump for visibility and invitation to declare with authority : P

    Centris 650 heatsink clip dimensions, looking to model replacement to 3d print

    Oh, I completely neglected to mention: the mount is mostly meant for the Noctua 40mm NF-A4x10 FLX and the rubber "pop-rivet" rubber mount solution they come with. (sorry I don't know the proper name off-hand) There were some spots of hot glue left (I originally wanted this for a Q700) which...

    Centris 650 heatsink clip dimensions, looking to model replacement to 3d print

    Okay, I just didn't look hard enough. Here's a pic of the mounted fan adapter:

    Centris 650 heatsink clip dimensions, looking to model replacement to 3d print

    I've had a mixed bag between Centris and Quadra 650 heatsinks... do you mean the super beefy heatsink, where the bracket clips to the CPU socket? (like the 700/800/9x0) Or this jobbie with the clip snaps onto the CPU ceramic? I have both and could measure either for you this weekend. I also...

    Wombat (650, 800) board overclocking limitations

    Gotcha. Do you have a workflow/script already in place for that I might be able to use? I don't trust myself to actually write anything that would actually, y'know, work : P Good catch. Does this have any bearing? (I'm just looking for patterns, not on what the code is actually doing—it's...

    CD-Rs Won't Boot/Open

    Another tip of you manage to get a bootable image: burn the CD as close to 1x as you can. I know it's slow, but I've had the best success with that. For some reason, and I'm not hip enough to say why (might be in the documentation), certain CD-R media I've used show some of Toast's write speeds...
