    I recently picked up a used Adaptec AHA-2940U2B. The card showed up on first boot in my PM8600, but had the older firmware. I then flashed it with the v1.2 firmware and now it is no more. I've...

    Thanks for the sanity check. I am only going to use the 8600 as a cd burning, tv watching machine so I figured I'd just take it back to its old 604ev @ 300Mhz. Might even go old school and put OS 8...

    Yes, believe it or not the fan in the 8600 & 9600 case is a 120mm x 120mm case fan. I think the power going to it through the spring terminals isn't the best, cause after breaking them and...

    Well, as I'm finding out now, I might have rather stayed with the Plextor 40x Narrow SCSI rather than the UW version since I'm now wishing to go to an LVD controller and drive.
