Mac CPU upgrade cards - 10/20/06 10:14 AM

So who has upgraded their CPU?  I'm getting a comparison between different manufacturers ready and I was hoping to get a general feel for how many people have actually done the upgrade.  Are there any horror stories someone wants to share?

Thanks guys.

in 2003 I upgraded a B&W G3 350 to a sonnet G4 500.  install was painless and the system runs tip top to this day.  I gave it to my aunt.

What have been people's feelings toward the loss of use of some of Apple's native troubleshooting features?  For example, I noticed the Hardware Test CD that came with my G4 now gives false error messages about the Logic Board after upgrading.

Why do you suggest avoiding Giga Designs Krusher?


Thanks,
