If all you have is the RAM board, you don't need to shift the socket. It fits just fine and doesn't bother the floppy drive (barely.) The IDE board also made by MKL stacks on top of the RAM board and creates a situation where the combined boards are too tall to fit under the floppy's rear, plus the IDE connector doesn't fit at all.leighb2282 wrote:So I get what part of that is doing - its moving the 68k CPU back and to the left inside the case (and i'm guessing if I wanted to initially I could literally just use the circuit board so I can get one of the 8Mb boards and mount the RAM and CPU on this to avoid clearance issues?)
MKL sells the IDE and RAM boards on this page. I believe he has even begun offering a board that combines the RAM and IDE one a single board!
Yes, it is for any 256K/512K Kickstart ROM or 27C400 EPROM. The kickstart ROM is optional, the board should work as only a relocator if you don't put anything else there. Note that accelerators such as the TF530 must have a Kickstart ROM to function in an Amiga 1000.leighb2282 wrote:The second chip socket is for the kickstart ROM? does someone NEED to add and utilize the Kickstart stuff or can I just use this to move my CPU & RAM slightly away from the FDD?
