ACA500+ with accelerator AND Mediator board?

Has anyone who has an ACA500 or ACA500+ attempted to attach an Elbox Mediator (one of the ones for the 1200) on the A1200 accelerator connector and also with an A1200 accelerator on it's passthrough?

I know it would be very large and exposed outside of a case but I'm wondering if it is worth trying?

I saw someone had Blizzard PPC using ACA500 with GREX (PCI for Blizzard) and Voodoo3

Yes. I tried the combination of A500, ACA500+, accelerator (I think a B1230IV) and a Mediator, with the intention of adding a 1GHz capable 750FX PPC just for laffs

But it doesn't work. Having corresponded with Jens a bit, the ACA500+ is inherently incompatible with the Mediator and using them together could have damaged either of them. So I gave up rapidly!

Someone on the Sonnet 7200 thread speculated that the ACA500 (not +) might be different but I do not know whether or not that is the case. Somehow I doubt the ACA500 is sufficiently different to be OK. Don't blame any burnt out boards on me if you try!

Jens usually very quickly jumps at whoever is trying to use his products outside of his design. I received strong warning emails about using the ACA+ with Amiga 1000...

In fairness, I reached out to him to ask if there was a way to get the combo to work...
