||Stability issues: a cooler and a software updates for ACA 1231 processor boards|
After several customers of Individual Computer's ACA 1231 accelerator boards reported stability issues, the manufacturer now supplies a cooling solution for free. All customers who already received an ACA 1231 will also receive the package detailed below without having to specifically request it.
Mario 'mfilos' Filos has supplied us with pictures of the package customers have received. It contains the cooler, a short manual and a 'Lisa' custom chip - which is used to fix a heat transfer pad during transport and can be used for other means once the cooler has been mounted on the ACA 1231:
Additionally, an update of the tool 'ACATune' is available from the web page of the official distributor Vesalia. ACATune is used under Workbench 3.0 (and only there) to add the FastRAM on the ACA 1231 to the system. The initial version had a bug which would try to add non-existant memory aswell, which would result in a system crash as soon as these memory areas were accessed.
Additionally, there's a new revision of the ACA 1231 Firmware that delays a cold start somewhat to give older harddisks enough time to spin up properly. The ACA firmware can not be updated by the user himself: customers whose harddisks are not recognised during a cold start are asked to contact Vesalia and request a firmware upgrade.
