i have always been a m$ w1nd0ws user and have been dying to have a shot at the apple os for ages. after a few weeks on ebay trying to haggle a cheap deal on either an early imac or ibook i have come out with a broken ibook clamshell 300mhz for £50... the intention is to fix the thing and have os x running on it to play with...
anyways i feel i already know quite a lot about the machine (haven't even got it yet - arrives on thursday) but i have a few questions i am hoping you people can help me with or point me in the right direction!
i plan to eventually have the machine running at 400mhz since this seems a target that everyone tries for and pretty much always gets with no problems. would be good for os x too! what i want to know is do you have to resolder the resistors or can i just use conductive paint to create the bridges between the points? i don't want to solder and have heard somewhere that conductive paint or similar is ok to bridge the gaps - can anyone confirm this?
can this be done at all?
due to the overclocking i would hope to apply some better thermal paste to the cpu and graphics (if it has a heatsink...) - probably arctic silver or similar. is this ok to do and is cleaning the old gunk off just the same as any other (amd/intel) cpu?
thanks in advance!
