  1. Alright. Then 128mb in total it is It’s my 7.6.1 machine anyway and 128mb is plenty for that.
  2. Hi! Does anyone know if a PowerMac 5500 would take 128mb modules? Would be cool to bump it to 256mb. According to this site, max RAM is 256mb, but I can't seem to find more info anywhere. https://www.macinfo.de/hardware/boards-g2.html#gazelle
  3. Alright. Do you know where can I find the schematics?
  4. Yep. The picture is taken with everything expansion wise removed, even the SCSI2SD disconnected. So what to do? I'm terrible at hardware and soldering etc.
  5. Hi! My SE/30 have been running just fine for over a year after recap, new RAM (128MB), ROM-inator II, DiiMo and MacCon II ethernet. One day I started the machine and got greeted by what's in the attached image as well as a garbled start chime. My first thought was that the ROM-inator had somehow lost contact in the socket despite the paperclip I had in place behind it. Tried fitting a new and more sturdy paperclip, but with the same issue. As a last resort I put back the original SE/30 ROM SIMM with the same result. So what can be wrong? The mother
  6. Thanks everyone for the kind words. Got the topper adapter from @Bolle yesterday and finally put the MacCon, topper and DiiMoCache in the SE/30. Did a quick benchmark and sure enough, it’s quite a bit faster than it was before The benchmarks doesn’t make it justice at all though. It feels insanely fast.
  7. @BadGoldEagle I’ll benchmak my SE/30 as soon as the card is fitted. Really interested to see if there’s any difference speed wise compared to your machine. And thanks for the kind words everyone! Really a dream come true to have a insanely fast compact Mac.
  8. So after some help from some kind forum members I finally found a DiiMO accelerator for my SE/30. It arrived yesterday and got it unpacked today. Can’t wait for the adapter for it, so I can put it to some use. I wonder if it will make a noticeable difference in performance.
  9. Why not make something like the Vampire II for Amiga work with the 68k Macs? Instead of reinventing the wheel with some kind of emulation running on ARM. It's 68000, 68020, 68030, 68040, 68060 and ColdFire compatible and is allmost twice as fast as the fastest real 68060 out there. I know that they are making a stand alone version and are thinking about adding the interrupts to make it work in Atari's. Why not add some 68k Mac support as well? Im not that into 68k stuff, so I don't really know what's needed. About the Vampire FPGA core for those of you not familliar with it: http://wi
  10. So I actually found where some kind of multiplier setting it. I tried 1.8ghz but only got a chime and black screen at boot. So I ended up going from 9.5x (1.58ghz) to 10x (1.67ghz) and it's rock solid. Too bad I can't seem to figure out how to set the multiplier to 10.5x so I can try reaching 1.75ghz. This thread might be better off in the hacks and mods forum when I think about it.
  11. I just got my hands on pictures of the 1.8ghz model. Attached them to this post. I haven't had time to sit down and compare the boards myself, but now it's at least possible to do just that. EDIT: Just compared them briefly and they look identical to me.
  12. Great! I'd still like to find where the actual PLL resistors are. Im interested to find out where the limit is for the 1.6ghz MDX What's the best way forward?
  13. Took a picture of the front of the card as well while I had it out of the MDD. On a side note; the stock aluminium apple heatsink fits perfectly over the MDX CPU board. Just switching the heatsinks lowered it's idle temperature with ~5C.
  14. A picture of the back of the 1.6ghz MDX is attached to this post
