    Hi guys...

    1.Just curious if i could replace my old 700 Mhz processor from eMac to a new 1.25 GHz?

    2. Is it possible too if i could update a USB 1.1 to USB 2.0 hardware from my eMac?

    Thanx,
    Sambal

    1. Only if you are good at soldering all those pins on a G4, and don't mind working around a charged CRT.

    2. Not possible on a SDR eMac, Apple accomplished this trick on the PowerMac MDD Rev. B -- but I don't recall if anyone's tried USB2.0 on those machines.

    They did it by moving USB from KeyLargo to PCI, but that also requires a bunch of stuff that's not possible at home without a PCI slot.

    When you design a new machine, yes. Rewire an old machine without PCI -- insanity.

    It is "possible." But I'd rather buy a new Bently than spend that much money researching the possibility and building a prototype.

    If you know what you are doing (you can ruin your eMac), try this for a nice little overclock: eMac 700mhz "Upgrade".
