Is it actually physically possible to put a PPC+BVision into an A1200 desktop (with a SIMM)?

adonay: Your website says you found the PowerPC board too hot for the desktop case and it was proving unstable...

On top of this the eBay auction here says that the BVision needs a clockport adaptor to get extra juice...

Maybe a tower would be the best option after all(?)

Lol yes it gets hot but you dont need the clockport adaptor unless you are using a fast ata mk III in there as well as a clock port card and a rom riser.but with only the bvision and bppc you would be fine off (dont know about the 040s tho)they are hotter than the 060s way hotter too.

I would say the tower would be the better way to go but for me the 1200 has to keep its housing "looks way better"

Yes, I have to agree with you.

Nothing beats the desktop case... it is remarkably similar to the Lamborghini Countach!

Trouble is, both get pretty hot inside and can get a bit cramped!

:-D

Maybe A1200 aircon could form the basis of a sub-topic!
