So my IIci just came off my bench after I re-capped the board. Currently installing OS to SCSI2SD 5.1 if for no other reason than I want to keep the physical hard drive unused.
The fan on the power supply is noisy/whiny. Not horrible but enough to be annoying. So I wanted to swap out the fan for something more modern and more quiet.
The first thing I'll have to determine is the voltage of the fan but that means taking apart the power supply.
I have been reading stories from other people about the power supplies going bad, blowing up etc. I want to prevent that from happening or at least dramatically reduce the chance. What do you suggest? Do a full re-cap of the power supply ? Is there a parts list?
No arguments there. Ask me how much fun it is to open an iceBook; even when they were new machines there was a 50-50 chance that you'd snap one of the case clips trying to pop everything open with a spudger.
I still can't believe that Apple thought it was a good idea to run the wireless antenna and display cables through the tiny hinge hole on the iceBooks...which sadly enough also contains the only vent for the cooling system. Not that the cooling fan ever turned on until the machine was borderline too hot to hold. Though, where Apple had hinges connected to a metal internal frame, HP a few years later (2006) decided that was too good for their dv9000 series laptops and connected their screen hinges to the plastic bottom case...and the connection point was right next to the CPU exhaust vent. On a Core 2 Duo laptop. Went through 3 complete screen assemblies on the laptop I had before I upgraded to the replacement model, the dv7...where they used the exact same design as it turned out.
Hi i am video enthusiast and old lover of old computers. I have lots of Macs from 68k to G5. I want to try video editing on early 604 machines. I have PowerCenter (clone) 120 Mhz, 80 MB RAM and video card TwinTurbo 128+ WITH MPEG MODULE and Composite VIDEO IN. It is possible to do some VHS video editing on it?
