    Which is?

    I've had Mac IIs forever, I'm just kind of bored with them. And they are the only vintage Macs I'm at all interested in (II,IIx,IIfx). Besides the Quadra/Centris line.

    What isn't going to fix it? Reconditioning the plastic then applying heat or solvents to seal little cracks? Have you tried it?

    And strangely this thing uses ddr3.

    I think I was mistaken and this board's chipset is p43. That said maybe I can't run the fastest core 2 quad, but why should I anyway. A c2q would be likeable. Assuming I get a legitimate 7 install...
