It's been a while, but here is another SWAUG.org.uk Support Tutorial.

Brian Hoskins of SWAUG has produced a tutorial on overclocking the BlizzardPPC.

If you have soldering skills and wanted to push your Amiga's speed to the limit, have a look at this!

We want to try a 603e / 300Mhz --- that would be an interesting mod of the BlizzardPPC

I'd love get my hands on schematics and documentation for the BPPC accelerator boards - that would be great, Im sure there's a few interesting things that could be done to them!!!

My next task is a 68040 - 68060 upgrade which I will fully document (Im upgrading all my old cards), then I'm going to push the overclock barriers on one of those, and then after that I'm going to look at what we can do to the PPC.

So watch this space, basically!

Brian

@Brian

Def interested in the 040-060 upgrade! Tho I am sure my 040 is totally soldered to the board, so that would be ALOT of de-soldering!

Great work! To be quite honest, though, my BPPC is *way* too valuable (to me) to poke and prod with a soldering iron...

Makes you realise how molly-coddled you become with PCs - I overclocked my Athlon XP by twiddling some setting in the BIOS

I had once a BlizzardPPC at 330 MHz running which was really fast. I played some of the PPC Demos and Quake1 through AGA. Not bad. And was really stable.

Well, a friend tried something WAY more interesting (and risky)...
He soldered a PPC740. It's totally compatible with the 603p (voltage, data,
setup, everything). The problem is that without any BGA equipment, the
soldering was not done properly... It worked, crashed all the time and
finally the chip was fried. This wasn't up to any voltage problems.
Now, if anyone could try mounting a 740 with the proper tools...

Yes, but I had a card with an original 603e 250 MHz Chip. Not a small 160 MHz.
