Good progress today, just waiting for the remainder of the components to arrive, then I'll do the mods and see what's what.

That socket stack would have to be pretty tall to allow the keyboard connector to be underneath the IDE board.
Something like this but possibly taller.
Icky, is the extreme high rise due to the keyboard connector? I plan on putting it in a mega and it doesn't appear there is anything to be avoided in the area the board covers. Still waiting.... on the board.

PaulJ. Yep it’s a DEV board. i.e. no regard for fitting nicely in an ST. If things are in the way stack yourself out of the way.

Trudie (I mean the production board) will be designed to miss out components on the ST board.

TBH it may fit my board without a second CPU socket stacked in there, but it's my general test and dev board, so had the extra one in for testing my PAK.

Once I have it running I will consider pulling the second socket, see if theres space.

Ya know guys, this is some kind of syndrome, one catches it from having to-many un-fu*k boards in their life. I blame this all on Exxos and his obsession with un-fu*kit boards. You can't deal with it unless it looks like downtown NYC or an other large city..!! You really need to seek out some professional help! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
