I might come up with a better title, but
clickbait fake news is hot right now. I have been collecting hardware and accelerators for this machine and I pretty much found and exhausted most options. There is one vague thing in my mind but I would have to search a bit... So now I want to get back to the basics- power. I have been wanting to replace the power supply with something that can deliver more watts to hungry accelerators.
Stronger Power Supply for the SE/30
I am starting with this neat little Corsair SF450 (well reviewed here ) power supply. I found it interesting that it is shipped in a velvet pouch like a bottle of Crown Royal. I made a rough harness to wire it in and removed the old PSU. There are a couple things about it that I have found that could be dealbreakers such as no separate 12V rail for sweep and lower spec for -12V.
12V 2.1A (sweep)
Soft-on connection (alligator clips):
Here's a teaser of a PowerPC accelerator (Daystar Turbo 601 100MHz) with an adapter riser board I use for testing. I did not expect it to run since it was not meant to work on the SE/30, however, it does make the PowerMac startup sound instead of the stock SE/30 sound, so maybe there is hope if a firmware hacker out there is interested in making it work.
Some questions I found some answers to... to be continued.
