    K, trying to find the pinout at the case end of the power supply. :banghead: no luck. Just trying to help look out for the better of you, to make sure you don't short anything. You never know if the pinout doesnt match up to the boards connector.

    My cables are from a Rocketfish 900w PSU.(Huntkey 900w) I bought it local and it didn't work. I do have three of them still running that I bought new for about $50 each about 1.5 years ago. Those are the PSU's running my 2600ks'.

    Thanks Norton and CP, I ended up taking a chance on the one @ Amazon- figure it shouldnt be an issue to return and I had a gift card balance :D

    Did a little research though and it looks as though I can upgrade the CPU in this notebook. So now I would like to see if I can find a T5200, T5300, or T5600 for this thing. Ebay has them for $20, but I would like to see if someone has one collecting dust.

    I have a T8100 sitting here all alone. Yours if you want it! ;)

    P.S> you can have what's left of the laptop this stuff came out of for a couple of $ if you're interested (needs a mobo, etc..)

    If this thing supported the T8100 I would take it, seems like I am limited to CPUs with a 533 FSB (and a couple with 667) :(

    Offer is still on the table, Brandon. HD3870 Toxic for $30. Just looking to fund a board for the Celeron ;) I'm certain you had one before but it's between a 9600GT & 9800GT in performance but KICKASS IQ compared to them.

    Gotcha! I was watching some things on eBay earlier. Came acrossed a few cards that would've interested you but I'm sure they all ended. Was checking for some s1155 boards.

    I just have to thank mkjmike for sending me the i7 930 and the rest of the items "coming soon" in my system specs. I'll put everything crunching as soon as I get everything working.

    Keep an eye out for sales on the Battle Axe and the Bifrost if you're looking to use them- major price drops on these every few months or so. :cool:

    If I can find a reference 8800GTS double stack cooler that would be nice. Those or a GTS 250 cooler will fit this card due to it being the same PCB
