    Best options for SSD in MDD G4?

    If you go wth that adapter, these drive adapters should make internal mounting easier : https://www.ebay.com/itm/192356040505

    Just as long as you don't have to deal with Samsung, their RMA process is a mess. I have had to RMA a few mSATA drives due to overheating failures and it always is a chore. The reliability has improved on their newer line of mSATA drives.

    If you want something that comes with warranty, the OWC Legacy line is great, I have a few of them and they work real well in MDDs. They are technically SATA to PATA conversions via MARVELL controller. ACARD used to have a really nice PATA to SATA drive sized adapter, but it has become absurdly priced these days.

    Cost saving model, you can swap it out, just remove the processor carefully.

    MacToTheFuture SE/30 10/100 Ethernet card

    Amazing! Can't wait to see the production run. This card paired with a PDS pass-thru, and cache slot would be the Ultimate SE/30 card. Just dreaming a little.
  6. The 2124NB II was unique as it as an in-house design by MicroConversions, and the last shipping card for 68K Macs, as Radius and the others had stopped at that point. VillageTronic's NuBus cards were derived from their PCI card lineup using Cirrus Logic controllers, and they were PPC only. VT claimed to have been working on 68K compatible drivers at one point, but they never materialized. The Sonnet Sonata Pro 24 was the rebadged version, sold in the late 90s to complement the G3/x100 upgrade line.

  8. Hello, I sent you a private message the other day. Was not sure if you had received it. Let me know. Thanks.

    The board is also slightly off the casing.

    Modern PSU for the SE/30

    @joethezombie Here is a clearer shot of the wires, i tried to unplug it from the Mean Well unit, but it's not coming off, so it might have been glued on.

    Modern PSU for the SE/30

    @JDW Here you go, and I just wanted to say it was your flickr pictures that got me obesessed with building this SE/30! I contacted Artmix aka Manabu Sakai in late May 2016 and he got back to me in July with availability of one in stock and I snapped it up. I am assuming he does not build these often. The Power supply is housed inside an old Sony PSU with custom screw holes for the two pieces, the Mean-Well power supply is PPT-125B, and the custom piece is the step up board by Stratos.

    Modern PSU for the SE/30

    I bought one of the Artmix SE/30 Hyper power supply. I contacted him about it and a few weeks later he got in touch telling me he had a few, they are clearly custom built. I can take it out of my Xceed/Dimo SE/30 if you want better shots of the parts.

    NICE! That is a sweet score! The 3.0 firmware supports NuBus PowerMacs.
