1: Is it worth having the solder installation? Is it stable?
2: Are there instructions anywhere to make sure i have the right bits?
3: Is there anyone still installing these? I'm not exactly the most adeptperson in teh world with a soldering iron.

Then don't do it. Seriously I don't have personal experience with the CT60 (yet!) but I have years of experience with accelerated Falcons. Once you get them working they're great, but it seems like every Falcon is a unique creature with it's own personality and getting them to work reliably with an accelerator usually requires a bit of skill and patience.

I messed about with it for ages, but in the end I took it out and did not want to risk it. As to what "died" I have no idea. If you have CT60 you already have a huge boost in speed, so IMHO I wouldn't risk it.
I had the DSP "termination resistor" in my falcon until I realised it was actually clamping the clock voltage by almost half. AFAIK some falcons suffered with some noise problems relating to the clock (why am I not surprised?) Though I think unless you actually have a problem, not to "fix" it. Falcons are a bit of a rarity these days, not exactly cheap to fix or replace should things go wrong.
I don't know if the CT60 bus boost is better than nemesis (would assume so) but still, after all the problems I had , I wouldn't risk it. Others however have it running fine at higher speeds for years. pot luck I guess

I can't remember if nemesis messed that up as well or not, probably did. I hardly have time to actually "use" my ST's these days because of hardware mods. My falcon has been in bits since 2002 ever since I got CT60 to install. Just don't have much time these days for my falcon
