Are the processor card in 7500's and 9500/9600 interchagable?
I have a 7500 with a dual 604e upgrade and lots of ram, i wanted to buy a cheap 95/9600 Tower and transplan most of the compenets into the 95/9600 and use what's left in teh 7500 as a small little web/ftp server, but the question is, will that work?

I once tried to put the processor card from a 9500 into a 7500 logic board and it didn't work. The 7500 would not boot. I later found out that the 7500 had a bad logic board to begin with so I'm not sure if that was the problem or not. Let me know if you have better luck.

It should work. I've successfully moved processor cards back and forth from 8500's to 7500's and even PowerComputing PTP's (9500 motherboard) without any problems.

I apologize for being weak on details, but I seem to remember reading about compatibility issues with this card in 7500/7600 machines and I swear I read it at the xlr8yourmac website. I went there and trolled around but found nothing. You might want to check there before buying.

7500 swaps with 8500 and 9500 just fine...same vintage..problems come up with 8600/9600 at above 233 MHz. That's the Mach 5-604e, I believe, and it only works in 8600/9600...everything else is fair game, including G3 upgrades. If you make the swap, do yourself a favor and keep the 7500 for a host to troubleshoot hardware problems. I am finishing cleanup of a nasty crash on my 8500 that started with bad RAM....I was glad I had a 7500 to use as a testbed. ...just checked Apple Spec Database and the 86/9600's bus speed jumped to 100MHz for the 300 MHz and 350 MHz models, actually faster than a Beige G3 , so the 9600 200 and 233 will accept your parts. Also I think the 86/9600 case is easier to get into... I think that's when Apple started the flip down side
