There may potentially be a way to upgrade 175mhz modules to R12k 300mhz 
modules.  People are doing it for boards as slow as 225mhz.  Initial 
reports from 175mhz and 195mhz modules is that no one has successfully 
upgraded one yet.  It sounds like SGI switch cache suppliers going from
195mhz to 225mhz.  Don't recall all the details (and didn't know all of
them in the first place).
