Yes and that's pretty much it. The Power Supply is relatively interchangeable between R4K systems and R8K, see http://www.oocities.org/siliconvalley/h ... upply.html
The rest can be swapped over from the R4K Indigo2. Don't forget to handle the R8000 CPU carefully, since it's sensitive to static discharge. Oh and make sure you secure the R8000 CPU correctly on the motherboard with all screws in place, since the standoffs provide power and ground to the module, see viewtopic.php?f=14&t=16726745&p=7351542&hilit=miod+r8000#p7351542
Thanks very much for the valuable info, I really appreciate it!
