RADical cuts?

Unread postby canavan » Sun Apr 22, 2007 11:56 am

Has anyone here ever tried modding a 030-0950-002 RADical PCI card for 3.3V? Does the card work with 5V (e.g. in an O2) afterwards? According to the old page on reality.sgi.com that's not even on realitydiluted anymore, the pins to be cut are "P2 pins A10,A16,A59,B19 and B59", essentially all the +5V/VCC pins. Did I count them properly as in the images below? (shamelessly lifted from viewtopic.php?t=8556&start=30 )

It appears that those are the correct pins to cut, and the card works in a Fuel afterwards, instead of preventing the fuel from starting at all. I haven't tested it in a 5V machine yet.
