there is like 3/4 to 1 inch for the video card to move forward in the se/30

More interesting info… the video card has been tested in 3, different SE/30's
2 out of the 3 for some reason the radius takes primary output #1.
the 3rd always makes the internal crt take primary output regardless, don't know why.
good news is with 7.1 or 7.5.5 you can go into monitors and change what monitor is 1 or 2 and what monitor has the task bar!
no driver needed.
these Radius video card really do rock socks!! makes the SE/30 SO MUCH COOLER!.
so yeah to re-cap… you can use the SuperMac card as a riser in the se/30 as long as hack hunks off the pcb on both sides so it fits…
2 more things!
1 - this IIsi radius video card works fine with stock SE/30 ROM.
2 - pulling the SE/30 onboard video rom does not give you any worth-while results… the computer still boots using the internal CRT anyways, even if the rom is not installed.
so the internal video would have to be disabled in other ways.
bonus tidbit. i talked to the seller and he said he has about 3 dozen of these radius cards left.
he said that he has less then that of the SuperMac riser Cards.
so i think he has enough of these to where, mostly everyone we know can do this if they wanted to.
to their SE/30 or maybe their second SE/30.
