to my delight I've been given an eMac 700Mhz rev. 1, along with a stock B&W G3 350Mhz tower.
The eMac came to me in poor condition; the CRT is screwed (convergence issues and possible water damage), and a previous owner snapped off the front bezel, airport aerial and other connectors thinking this was the way to access the Mac's internals :(. It looks like junk, but I can just see a picture on the CRT and have been able to install 10.4.8 onto the machine, without issue.
Ideally I'd like to merge the eMac's motherboard and merge it into either the above B&W case or another custom case - it would make for a nice headless machine, overclocked to ~ 1Ghz with dual HDs, etc.
Unfortunately, I can't find a reliable source of information on the VGA and power pinouts of this model eMac - there is heaps of info regarding the gen 2/800+Mhz model, but the information for the gen 1 pinouts are incomplete - below are the most relevant links I've been able to find.
- So, does anyone have a reliable, tested pinout of the VGA and power pinouts for this particular model eMac?
- Once headless, am I able to retain the eMac's existing (working) power supply and use that, instead of an ATX one?
- Or can I just use the iBook-style external monitor connector instead of hacking the primary VGA port?
