Ok, i picked up an eMac 700Mhz off of craigslist last week. During that time, i have been making a number of upgrades. Little stuff like more ram (took it from 128->640MB) increased the harddrive (upped it by pulling the 40GB and putting in an 80GB with a faster RPM) and then fixing some stuff (Pulled the half-dead DVD/CD-RW and replaced it with a Comcrap DVD-ROM) but this is the first time I have *actually* dug into doing a major hardware hack. I present the new eMac 900Mhz:
I did this using this link
After having been into it a couple times, i got the idea of the layout and followed the instructions pull the 0 Omh resisters using a solering iron. I was thinking of doing like some others said by using an exacto knife, but decided against it, seeing as how I did something dumb like that last time, left me with a dead Pentium 4 board (that I tried to up the bus on an OEM Dell Board for a friend. Luckily he knew the risks of me doing the hack, so i was off the hook)
So, i now have the machine humming along fine at the new 900Mhz CPU speed. and I feel VERY happy about pulling the stunt off and actually having it work. This ws the first time I soldered something like this, and I feel great now.
Anyways, I just wanted to show off. This may be something normal for most of you hackers, but I have done small stuff like through a BIOS, and this is the first mac hack I have done of this sort.
Anyways, thanks for reading this.
