As a long time reader and user of this boards info, I have come to know and trust your advice - and it was this boards information that enabled me to sucessfully add a Toshiba 3GB drive as well as a WinChip2 with lasagna cooler to my v1 iOp. After running the mod'd unit for several months now (95% of the time on 24/7), I have become aware that the unit is not being regularly used by me or my family. My 11 year old daughter complains that IT IS TOO SLOW and uses our Acer Travelmate 732TXV and our iMac revB before she will use the iOp. I have decided that I need a new processor, and I have read many things about the K6 II cpu's and am leaning towards installing one. As the person who is touted to be the premier board solderer(sp?) on this board, I am coming to you with a proposition.---
If I send you my v1 iopener along with a new K6 II, would you do the install for me in trade for the WinChip2 that you replace? I would pay shipping - and would allow you all the time you need. I would ask for your recommendation as to which cpu I should install in the v1, and I will scour for the deal and purchase one, then ship.
I will look for your response here, then we can go to e-mail if you like. thanks...
