actually i'm just trying to put together the fastest g4 for the cheapest investment i can so i can get a used 867 mhz processor out of a quicksilver for real cheap but will it run in a sawtooth board ? and one other question on a sawtooth board what is the white port right behind the pci slots there are two one is ide is the other scsi?
Loc: Vancouver, BC Canada
a quicksilver cpu will work on a sawtooth board. from the sawtooth through to the quicksilver the same connection (forget waht its called) was used. this is re-enforced by the fact that all the cpu upgrades for these G4 models work in all 4 of the revisions.
Mac mini C2D 1.83GHz - 2GB RAM - 200GB 7200rpm HD Sawtooth w/G4 1GHz - 1GB RAM - SIIG SATA w/2x1TB HD B&W w/G4 600MHz - 1GB RAM - 2x80GB HD Sawtooth G4 400MHz - 512MB RAM - 40GB HD Dell Ultrasharp 2007WFP 20" Widescreen LCD 2.94TB Total Storage
If you have any of the inner case panels to go with the new board, you might have more choice in what you can fit into your B&W case by swapping some of those too.
As for the connections on the sawtooth board, if you mean that short white connector between the PCI slots and the Airport card socket, its for an internal dial-up modem board. The last powermac with on board SCSI was the Beige G3 to the best of my knowledge. All subsequent ones with SCSI drives were shipped with Adaptec SCSI cards in.
