    Is a Powermac G4's logic board interchangeable with a Cube? I mean the PM 500mhz single processor? I heard it was or read it was, somewhere. If so, I can probably fix up a cube I have with shot usb ports with it? Anyone know?

    I accidentally my whole location.
    Logic board? No. Processor? Maybe. As long as its got a 100Mhz bus speed.

    You're asking if a ~12" x ~14" logic board will fit in an 8" x 8" cube?



    Or are you asking about the processor (not the logic board)?

    If so... I don't think so. All the processor upgrades that I've seen are specific for the small form factor of the cube.

    EDIT: confused.. processor upgrade like this one are for multiple Macs:

    But the upgrade for the cube is different. More cache? Less cache? Different size? No idea.

    Yes.... if you mean the processor..... The bus speed is the same and I have Done it with My G4 Cube and My G4 Sawtooth with no problems. They have been switched for more than 4 years.:apple::apple::):apple::apple:
