View Full Version : compatiablity between qs and da procs
Sep 20, 2003, 11:15 PM
ok i was wondering if anyone knew how compatiable the quicksilver procs were to the DA series. what i mean is can i take a quicksilver 867 proc and drop it in a DA machine with no problems?

i highly doubt that it's even possible...considering motherboard revisions...but if it was, you wouldn't get the performance out of the chip because of bus speeds and ram/etc...
why would you want to do this anyway?
you would probably need an upgrade card from sonnet or xlr8yourmac

well for a 800 mhz upgrade its about 50 bucks more the the 867. and the 800 fits the DA machines and early QS machines. so if i can upgrade for cheaper the better... i am not too much intrested in spending more for a 1ghzor higher upgrade as the benefits are not as great for the amout they are asking for the upgrades.
also early QS machine use a 133 bus. and some one put a QS proc in a sawtooth machine... with some case mods... i just want to drop it in..
