(sorry, I hit reload. moderators please delete the one with no replies)

I'm new to this foroum, so hi peeps.

I want to overclock my quadra 610, does anybody know how? I'm used to amiga accelerator boards that have crystal oscilators on them but I can't see one on this mobo (looking for a 25mhz one).

Is the oscilator an smt one or is the clk generated in some other place?

I've never done one myself, but the most comprehensive guide to all mac models is at: http://homepage.mac.com/schrier/mhz.html - especially http://homepage.mac.com/schrier/spec.html which has info on the Q610s oscillator, apparently a 12.5MHz part.

Cheers dana, according to that guide I can put the oscilator up to 15MHz (ish) whilst still keeping everything functional on the motherboard. Shouldn't be too hard to swap out either as the oscilator is quite big :)

Great site isn't it! I even enjoy just reading about projects I will never attempt myself. I did however successfully up my Q605 from 25Mhz to 33Mhz (and it's been a happy little web server ever since ) Be sure to let us know how you go....

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it sure beats a blank stare for starting a conversation.
