Amiga1200/dkb1240 processor question


Nov 28, 2004
I recently aquired a nicely working a1200 with a dkb1240 and some other bits & accessories. One of those other bits is a slightly dusty and bent pin board that has a 68030/68882 50MHz combo.

I'd like to find out if the procs are working before messing with the board, and what little I've googled for suggests I can solder in a 50MHz crystal to the dkb1240 board and select it by jumper for a different fpu speed than the default 40. Since I'm not an old Amiga hand, I'd would be good to know if it is possible to perform this crystal/cpu/fpu change or if I'm liable to destroy the one working Amiga I have.
