View Full Version : A1200 Accelerator questions
12-04-2002, 08:56 AM
I have A1260 but would like to upgrade to PPC but keep it in standard case. Somebody told me his 040 T/ERC produces more heat than my 060, so his Miggy is lifted up a lil and has no trapdoor cover. And 040 has also a fan. So if im gonna get BlizzardPPC with 060 then i dont have to lift it and add a fan etc? But BlizzardPPC with 040 requires it? Like i said, id like to have it still in keyboard case. Love that sexy tiny outfit on my gf:) I belive i should get a more powerful PSU too, than standard 1200 one? Or will A500 PSU do fine?

yes, the PPC can work in an A1200 desktop, but try to cool it. Add a fan inside it to let air flow to the accelerator, put something to avoid that the simms touch the metal of the keyboard, and use a PC PSU. An A500 one will not work or will burn in a hour. Get a PC PSU, they are cheap...

If you`re going to get a pc power supply,
might as well buy a full tower, and a hack-saw!
just fit the lot into the tower, it`ll take you an hour.
i`ve got some pictures on my site , of a standard
tower that i removed the back, ( turned it up-side down).
and tied the 1200 mobo still attached to it`s plastic base, into the tower, ( it`s tied there with ribbon!)
The 60 processor uses 3.3volts and runs a lot cooler than the 5v 040.
As for the PPC.... a fan is a must!
There are some really quiet fans on the market, And its worth getting the munition grade ones, as this will cut down on the running errors,( and increase cpu life...)

Can you supply a direct link to the miggy pictures page please? Your big Green Ball Java thing seems to hose my copy of IE, and I can't get past it :-(
