Quote from: "tomaz"Pyro seems to come as a board, then a piece of foil, a heatsink with a fan, and a metallic clip to hold the fan in place on top of the CPU.What is the purpose of the piece of foil?Is it necessary/desirable/not desirable to apply some thermal grease between the CPU and the foil / between the foil and the fan?
Quote from: "tomaz"What to do? Is the problem the slow RAM, or the CPU?
Quote from: "tomaz"What do you recommend I do to cool it better?
Quote from: "tomaz"Failing that ... I assume the 68040 in Pyros as delivered are all rated at 40MHz?
Quote from: "gtnicol"I posted a few Pyro pictures on Flickr showing the 2 different kinds of Pyro boards I have, and the motherboard modification needed to get the motherboard to boot in slot #2. This modification works without a Pyro, of course, but it is necessary for the Pyro in order to have space for the heatsink.http://www.flickr.com/photos/15578792@N02/sets/72157628075866757/with/6374434459/
