Actually they did sell a little faster than anticipated! However, I did manage to find a couple more to tide us all over til our next shipment comes in. So they're back in stock again. mrgreen.gif

In the spirit of fair competition in business and free markets, please let me add info on another, new CPU upgrade product, featuring the chip that raised a lot of interest 2 years ago among those "in the know".
-Barefeats published some pretty interesting benchmarks on the new, 7448-based MAXPower CPU upgrades released by Newer Tech for all AGP G4 PowerMacs:
http://barefeats.com/g4up2.html

Dear Leader-YMS, would you please supply one of your Giga 1.4GHz cards to the Mad Scientists at barefeats.com so they can add results to their benchmarks? I suppose, we in the G4 community would all like to compare price/performance between these currently available great products!

Some pros/cons in advance:
- The Giga 1.4GHz upgrade for sale by YMS is Cube-ready "out-of-box".
- The MAXPower G4 upgrades can't be installed in a Cube "out-of-box", they need some modification either by Newer Tech, or DIY by the customer (certainly doable, there are several PM tower CPU upgrades that were DIY modded for use in a Cube).

All the Best, and thank you and your company for STILL supporting the Cube!

Just installed the Giga 1.4 upgrade purchased at YMS.

Everything working perfectly. I'm running the CPU at 1.5. It's fast very easy to install (no patches needed), a really out of the box upgrade.

I'm very happy with it.



(Thanks Jeremy, for pointing me in the right direction...)

It's running at 1.5 GHz with 1.5GB of ram... Was that the question? ( PC133 - 333)

PC133-333 is the answer I was after

I guess you had sticks capable of running at PC100-222 speeds

No wake-from-sleep issues?

Ok, now I got you. I'm a bit slow today ;-)

Yes, tested sleep and wake several times everything works perfectly. And with the Giga fan my temps have also cooled down by a couple of C. My SilenX was slower and didn't push as much air.

This is the Ram I'm using:
http://www.cyberport.de/item/1084/996/0/10...0133---mac.html


System Profiler shows the Ram as PC133-333

I'm very happy so far.

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

And can you check the system profiler under OS 9 which tells how it is being treated; PC100-222 or PC100-322

OK, I'll let the the Cube fall asleep by the energy saver, and I'll post my results.


Sorry, can't help with the OS 9 profiler, because I'm not running OS 9, might have a copy some where (not installed though). I chose the Giga, just for this reason (firmware was up to date) OS 9 was not necessary for installation. One major reason not to go Sonnet or PL.
