Oh man Debs, can't wait to see some of the pictures!!!
Amd was Slot A and intel had different slot's. They where slot 1 and 2.
no need anymore : TPU "Upload a File" button, is awesome!
bring it on!
Not exactly computer-related but it's cool and nostalgic.
Some pictures of my latest activities.
I bought some radiators at ebay. They look a little used, but the function is 100%.
From left to right: 2x Magicool 360 slim, XSPC RX360, Airplex EVO 360.
The XSPC was painted with fresh black spraypaint.
I screwed this one together with the Airplex and 3 powerful 120 x 38mm fans. This will be the heat exchanger for my DFI/ crossfire youngtimer.
As it is impossible to find a chipset cooler for the DFI CFX3200, I had to build one by myself.
So I took 2 coolers which I couldn't identify, made them fit and soldered them together.
This fits pretty good and I'm happy with it.
Last but not least I'm building a "pull-out mainboard sled" for the "Thai-Chi" case.
just a pic. It's not in use at the moment.
Love reading this thread! I know its not as old as most of the stuff in here, but I just got my hands on a nvidia GT240 GDDR5. Been thinking about swapping it into my system labeled "experimental" in my sig instead of the HD6450, what y'all think? I plan on getting that thing back up n running, got a bunch of old games that just will not play on 7/8 but ran just fine under XP. I tried some of them in a virtualized XP using vmware player, a few were ok, but most did not function.
Also, found a old compaq from about 2000 in my dads storage unit. If its the one I'm thinking of, it should have a K6-2+ 450MHz skt 7 in it... gonna try to tear into it this weekend.
My Slot A win 98se rig.
Not only is that brilliant, but masterfully put together. You never cease to amaze me, Backfire.
Did a little job today. I got a GF4 MX420 from my uncle and damn that heatsink was like glued on it! Well, AtiTool's artifact scanner for 30min and when the card got enough heat, I finally managed to pop that heatsink out... And guess what? The TIM was that stupid classic bubblegum-like stuff And the weirdest thing was that in the chip was text "MX440-SE"
Well, took the most bubblegum out with sandpaper and wiped the heatsink too to a little better shape and put some GC-Extreme to it. Some day I must try OC that piece of crap.
My Slot A: 1.0GHz, Rage Fury Maxx, Voodoo 2 SLI, Terratec EWS64 XL
Mine is a 800 mhz proc with a Rage Fury pro and a Aureal Vortex 2 SQ2500.
Gotta love that Backfire's setup..
Voodoo2 SLI? Well I guess I will put a photo of my "not in #1PC" graphics cards in a moment
Ronnie James Dio don't need that cooler casue he's born in hell!

Hi guys and girls.
I decided to jump on the deal a friend made to me a one month old motherboard for 30$ and rebuild myself a setup.
Mobo : G31M-GS R2.0 (30$)
CPU : 6300 SL9SA 1.86gig/2M/1066FSB (Going on overclock at least 2.5gigs) (Junk)
CPU cooler : CoolerMaster Vortex 752 (15$)
Memory : (4gigs) 2gigs Kingston KVR800D2N5/2G + 2gigs Transcend JM800QLU-2G (Junk)
Graphic : Asus EN9800GT HB/HTDI/512M/A (Junk)
Optical : DVD-RW LG GH22NS70 (Sata2) (35$ back in time)
Hard disk : Samsung Spinpoint SP2504C (Sata2) (Junk)
Power supply : Enermax NoiseTaker 2 EG495P-VE (2$..yeah you've read right!)
Case : Aerocool Qx-2000 (120$ back in time and used it in many setup already)
Will probably add a 3.5" cards reader and use it for Office, Youtube, Facebook, Downloading, Battlefield 2 multiplayer. Maybe time to open my nib Arkham asylum to try it.
Total cost of the setup 47$. Junk parts are parts i got from people who don't want anymore, municipal ecologic recycling depot and even on roadside the day of garbage.
JunkBear: Damn what a sweet set!

oh well i need a G31 mobo for my spare 6300 or ... to use the 6700 2.66(1$) that replaced my 6300 1.86 i had in my DC7700p(free) with 4gb DDR800 Corsair XMS2 (free) ... hu... i love the DC7700p for internet/video/and retro XP gaming ... (ok the R7-240 is a bit too much... ) ... man i wan't a Wolfdale CPU back .... too much Conroe in my collection ...
