      The apollo accelerator cards for the Amiga A1200 are very good cards but on certain revisions of motherboards will refuse to work. The main problem boards are the Rev 1 D.4 and Rev 2B. To make these accelerators work a small modification needs doing to the motherboard. Exactly how involved this will be really depends on your motherboard and the revision of Budgie installed on your motherboard.

      What you have here is the first set of documents from old Commodore that I managed to assemble. This is definitely a work in progress, and it doesn't progress fast. Much of the Amiga stuff was done on Amigas, but unfortunately at different times. So I didn't necessarily still have the programs necessary to read and convert some of this documentation to ASCII and/or the portable document format (PDF, Adobe's Acrobat format, as close as you're likely to get to a universal format).

      CyberStorm MKII Upgrade Page
      Author: Bill   Date Verified:
      NOTE ** archived copy from *** This page exists because of the problems I came up against when trying to upgrade my Amiga A4000T from a 68040/40MHz Cyberstorm MKII from Phase 5 to a 68060. I emailed Software Hut where I ordered my 4000T/CSMK2 almost 2 years ago, but all they wanted to do to help me was to sell me a MK3 board. As a college student, I don't have that kind of money, and I thought it a silly solution since MK2 boards were also sold with 060s on them. So I emailed Phase 5's support email address, as found on their web site, as the MKII owner's manual says "In case of an upgrade of your MK II 040/40ERC ERC [why the double ERC I don't know] to a 68060 processor, which we are quite prepared to do for you..." on an insert for the 040 version of the board.

      DIY A1200 Tower guide
      Author: Stefan ggemar   Date Verified:
      Why build an A1200 Tower? I built my A1200 tower because I needed more room, the standard A1200 case was so filled with stuff that it got overheated all the time. Well today I haven't got that problem anymore. As almost every A1200 owner I want to use several harddrives and a CD-ROM drive to, but there isn't enough room in the standard case. And with more than one harddrive and turboboard you need a more powerful PSU than the standard one.

      Floppy Replacement

      The floppy disk drive in older amigas are starting to wear out.Those which do not, or at once stage, did not have a hard drive, are particularly effected. The amiga floppy drive is fairly rare and expensive, although, Graham Chui at Comp Karori still has stock as I write this (6/3/01). For those that can't get a real amiga floppy, you can use a PC floppy drive. Now before you get excited, you can use a High Density drive, you won't be able to read or write High Density disks with it. Anthony Hoffman has done the conversion and has the following to say:

      How to make the Phase 5 CV64/3D ScanDoubler work in the A2000 / A3000 video slot
      Author: Stphane Guillard   Date Verified:
      Phase 5 (German manufacturer of superior quality Amiga hardware extensions) was making, a few years ago, a graphics board called the CyberVision 64/3D (based on the S3/Virge chipset). This board came without a scandoubler (a system which would enable viewing 15 KHz original screenmodes on the >31 KHz monitor connected to the CV64/3D). Such a system was proposed as an option : the CV64/3D Scandoubler. Here it is, sitting in the A2000 video slot : The board was able to run in Zorro II (Amiga 2000, 3000, 3000T bus technology) and Zorro III (Amiga 4000, 4000T). But the scandoubler module was only made to fit the specifically enhanced video slot of the A4000/4000T, and would not even mechanically fit in the A2000/3000 video slot.

      Overclocking the CyberStormPPC
      Author: Wouter Lame   Date Verified:
      Over the years I have gathered quite a bit of hardware. Maybe I'll add a detailed list later, but right now I'll focus on what currently is the heart of my A4000T: A brand new CyberStormPPC with 233MHz PowerPC 604e and 50MHz 68060, produced by DCE, the company that took over the production of these and other cards from Phase5.

      Overclocking the Phase 5 boards
      Author: Dave's Amiga Hardware Page   Date Verified:
      The Cyberstorm PPC is a dual processor PPC604e / 68060 card clocked at 200 MHz and 50 MHz respectively, although there are other variants using different speeds. The Cyberstorm MKIII is identical, though without the PPC chip and associated circuitry. MKIII users can therefore, ignore any references to the PPC in this discussion.

      The Big Old Chip List (Amiga Custom Chips)
      Author: RCR   Date Verified:
      Way back in 1989, when I worked for one of the many CBM divisions, I kept a paper that had a list of custom chips that I ran across in my work. The list got a lot of requests and kept growing. When CBM went under I moved the list over to AmigaGuide. It is a simple idea. It is a AmigaGuide sorted by the chip name and its function. Within that there is information on the full chip name, CBM Part Number and Machines used in. The guide covers machines from A500 to A4000T (and AA3000/A3000+) and CDTV(II) to CD32. OCS to AAA chipsets. Cards such as Gemini & A2631.

      Using the A3640 in an A3000
      Author: Oliver Knorr   Date Verified:
      The A3640 is Commodore's 25 MHz 68040 board used in the A3000T-040, A4000/040 and A4000T. Originally it was designed to fit in the desktop A3000, too (hence the name). Unfortunately, this did not work as good as expected. Several problems were found, so Commodore never recommended the A3000 installation of the A3640 officially.

      Watercooling the Cyberstorm PPC
      Author: Steve Giovenella   Date Verified:
      For quite some time now, PC overclockers have been exploring new techniques in cooling their hardware. One popular technique is watercooling, in which the traditional heatsink and fan is replaced by a watercooling "block". This block is attached to the chip being cooled in a similar manner to the usual heatsink and contains ducts in which the cooling fluid passes through. An inlet and outlet tube is attached to the block. These tubes run via a pump to a radiator outside the computer's case. The idea is that the fluid passes through the block, cooling the chip and is then passed through the radiator, which cools the fluid in an endless cycle.

      Disk2FDI is a utility running under DOS to create Formatted Disk Image (FDI) files from actual floppy disks. Please note that it will NOT work under Windows NT, 2000, and XP. It is the first program to allow Amiga-formatted disks reading on a standard PC, although it requires 2 disk drives to work. This was previously thought to be impossible. Disk2FDI is also able to create standard ADF files that can be directly used with Amiga emulators, ST files that can be directly used with Atari ST emulators, and IMG files from PC disks.
