Can you try letting the energy saver having it sleep and not just Sleep under the Apple?



Ok, just tested it and there are no issues went to sleep waited untill HD spin down and my cube woke up without problems.

Seems to be stable.

Great news; I have good memory on the way and should be able to report results soon. I can already report that

On PC100-322 things are rock stable
On PC133-333 (good quality) some instabilities
On PC133-333 (cheap) terrible instabilities

while a stock cube was rock stable on any of this memory.

I wish I could reprogram the PC100 speed settings; I know it can be done, DIMMFirstAid reprograms troubled memory.

I think we're drifting from CPU to Ram topic. I'll post my questions on the correct thread.

My fault, but for me they were related

RAM problems ONLY happened with my accelerator

I just got the 512MB PC133-222 stick (no expense spared), and so far thing seem very stable although it is reported as PC100-322. I am delighted to have a stable Mac again.

Same desire here - the 450 is a bit slow... any GigaDesigns G4/1.4GHz/2MB for the CUBE or other speeder-uppers out there?

Several of us have them, but if I was looking for a Giga 7455b now, I would expect to have to buy a whole upgraded cube to get one. The Powerlogix 7447a 1.5 is a less expensive alternative that is still available at OWC for $214.99.

Here is a tower model Gigadesigns 1.4GHz 7455b upgrade, three days left in the auction. The difference is mainly the heatsink, and it uses jumpers for voltage regulation instead of dipswitches. It could work by replacing the heatsink with the copper heat plate from the cube's original processor. The Giga cube model upgrade came with a heat plate somewhat larger than the original.
