How many other people have had this operation done, and has it been rock solid? Can you pass all diagnostics and work under load perfectly for extended lengths of time?
I have Chicago-Joe's first RM7000/400MHz module in my O2 (an experiment before he tried the 600MHz CPUs; check out the beginning of this thread). It ran 24/7 as the server for the Nekochan web site for quite a number of months and continues to run daily as a desktop machine (I moved the server to an O200 partly because the O2 is now fun to use). It's very reliable - I've not a single issue since the upgrade.
It's actually only 50MHz faster than the RM7000/350MHz module that SGI shipped (I wouldn't mind a 600MHz module at all!) - but considering it still had to go through the entire modification process it's pretty darn remarkable.
