    I'll probably sound like a fool by even suggesting this, but is it at all possible to drop the dual 867MHz 7455 PowerPC processor from a Mirrored Drive Door G4 into my single 867MHz 7450 PowerPC Quicksilver? I need to know things like possible differences in the socket, mounting hole alignment issues, power requirements, firmware issues, etc. Thank you very much to anyone who can help!!

    Although it may be technically possible given a lot of work and know how, I'm going to go out on a limb and say a big fat no way bubba.

    Hmm, how about a single 933MHz from a Quicksilver 2002?
