    The fan works. I just can't seem to keep the case cool enough to do heavy work with it.

    The pdf below should be the manual but it loads sometimes, sometimes not.

    This is used and as-is. I just got it a week ago and it runs too hot in my Digital Audio. With the case open and a fan blowing on it, I can run it indefinitely with stability. With the case...

    Update: Got a 50mm fan and put it in without a shroud of any sort. Didn't help much blowing out the back. Turned it around to blow on the heatsink, helped the system remain stable a bit longer. ...

    Update: the 60mm, although the same size as the fan on the previous processor/heatsink, wouldn't fit with the new processor/heatsink in there. Too big. So it's going to take a smaller fan. I...

    Seller insists he's on the up and up.

    Disk works perfectly.

    Want to save some money on a Tiger DVD of ambiguous legality, $40 bucks on eBay isn't a bad way to go.

    G4 upgrades - L3 Cache?

    Just how important is L3 Cache in a G4 upgrade?

    If I'm upgrading a DA 733 that has 256KB L2 and 1MB L3 to something like a 1.4GB G4 upgrade with 512KB L2, is the lack of L3 cache a minor or major...

    It wasn't quite like the second pic, lol, but it was very similar to the first one.

    So, is it dead? Or might cleaning it save it?

    Thermal Grease kills G4?

    Recently had a G4 Zif processor die and when I removed it, I noted a good amount of thermal grease on the surface. Not just the cpu, but kind of smeared all over the chip.

    That Daystar zif makes my point. I could get an entire G4 tower for the price of that one zif. I don't know why anyone would buy that zif at this point for that price.
