You should find the dual CPU modules and go for a quad processor

Wasn't there a company that made dual 125s?  That would really scream.

I have a SS20 like yours, except headless and with SM71s, and it is nice
and fast.  I've heard reports that SM81s are much worse heat wise, and
this machine is already hot to the touch, so I don't expect I'll ever
try to find SM81s, not that I would ever turn some away that came my
way.  I love Sparcs.
