Wow, I remember them power supplies! They were insanely expensive in the day. Awesome score Greiver!
So cute :3
best point : RED and PciE 6pin.
will go lovely with the KT6V 400 and the Xpertvision Radeon X1950GT Super AGP ... oh wait ... DAMN the next mobo is not red as the MSI KT6V 400 is ... oh well the Xvi still is xD
annddd delay ... as much as expected xD no money till tomorrow (i hope so xD )
That's subjective. The AN7 definitely couldn't do the same FSB's as the NF7. Most stopped cold at 235-250. But the voltage options were better/higher than the NF7, thus needing less, if any volt mods. Stability wise, the AN7 was a better board.
insanely good packaging you said? well quite ... quite ...
SB0730 hummmm google... holy shi... a SB X-FI XtremeGamer .... ok not nostalgic ... pfah (oh well ... why not ... PCI ... )
I WAS RIGHT! a E8400! YAY! WOLFDALE IS BACK (again...)
double post due to the 10 img limit
ok a 8600GT Silent 512M well quite cute and cutely quiet ...
OCZ Vendetta 3 heatpipe but quite thicker than those of a Katana 4 and also direct touch no fan include but oh well the scythe is designed to willingly (under threat of torture) give his fan and clamp
BEST BUNDLE EVER!
more incoming : placeholder test setup and such (duh my Velociraptor 10k 150gb SATA II died it seems ... oh well IDE all the way)
who knews that such a beastly cooler could fit with all those tall copper heatsink around the socket ...
Look like an older model of my Enermax NoiseTaker 2 485w
well the build quality of the Coolergiant is a notch (and a huge one) above the Noisetaker serie, the anodized aluminium casing is thick and when i write thick i mean "wtf 2mm thick no possible way to bend that casing" and the fan design was a bit more efficient at my taste (i had a Noisetaker II back) Enermax had some real good PSU back there ... now hum ... i need to do some research might find some interesting things
yeah indeed ... i might have found my next PSU brand if i go 290 CFX later ...
Coincidence. I just won the 385 Watt model, hope the power distribution is good for my pending 486 build.
The one I have is wuite heavy and thick. Components inside seems to be a good quality.
i had a Noisetaker II and its thinner than the Coolergiant : same as every PSU good or not, no doubt they are good
indeed totally not the same build quality as this.
for a 486? overkill... btw its a 380 not 385, 385 is the model designation (like my EG485AX is a 480) the gold one is cute ... altho a bit to blingy
Better too much power than too little. it only cost £0.99 plus about £6 shipping
yep better too much than too little and nice find shall we start a Coolergiant owner club
ok time to go to the job have fun nostalgeeks!
i'm guessing its a typo for 'quite' as in "very heavy"
on another subject i got another 'somewhat' old-ish laptop from my brother which later on i'll be cleaning and snap a few pics of it
well i thought about "Quite heavy" since Q and W are close ... Quite-Wuite make sense eh? xD ok corrected
Anyway Wuite is it even a word?
you should know it's your typo
details: quite a perfect fit eh? plus the TY-147 give a direct flow on the back Mosfet heatsink
i think i can use a 2nd TY-147 duh on SKT775 the ram slot were further than on following SKT (well those XMS2 800 are low profile ... so no worries )
also i found a Seagate Barracuda 120gb 7200.7 (ultra ATA) in my wonderbox, until i get some cheap deal on SATA that should do it
I'm Wuite and i'm not racist I like Block people.
eh? your O is close to your A ? how odd ....
almost tempted but i can find only one ... duh (of both type, 8600GTS and 9600GT )
altho GTX260 are easier to find and ... eh? cheaper ... 20chf for the 1st one and free for the second one ... cons: 4x6 pin PciEx needed
hard to find some card (well, its either they are too expensive for what they are or only 1 available )... and i need 4 of them (2 for the Striker and 2 for the Supermicro)
Just won an NF7-S. What's the difference between a v1 and a v2?
Not sure what the difference is on that. I have an NF7-S v2. I often wondered what the difference is between the two.
Actually @ThE_MaD_ShOt would probably know the difference. Maybe he will chime in and let us know.
The version 2 has the Nfroce 2 ultra chipset. V2 offically supported 200 fsb and didn't need the volt mod to run over 205 fsb. 2.0 had fixes with the SATA and temperatures / voltages being more accurate (still not perfect). Though some 1.2's were almost as good as the v2's. Oh and to others dismay the nf7-s v2 is still ranked the king of Nforce 2 ultra boards.
Haha, I knew you would chime in on that one brother!
I won't know which I have til it arrives as he used a stock image and eBay stock specs, although he assures me the board is identical to the pic.. It was cheap anyway - £5.49 shipped
