    Had a similar Compaq computer with that style of board come in a few years ago. 256MB DDR, 2 angled DDR slots, 64MB GeForce2 MX AGP. I believe it had a Williamette 1.7 in it. Notably, I think it had a sports car silkscreened on it and something about the USA. Perhaps the computer I received was made shortly after the 9/11 tragedy when people suddenly became more patriotic for a while.

    Yep, Thats a moles. The black cord that plugs in looks like the end that oes in the power box for a laptop but instead plugs in that board. Theres no other connectors so I'm not sure nor do I see a name somewhere so I can try looking up what it is.

    Looks like it's made by AcBel and the date looks like 2004.07.12 or something, so maybe it came out of a really cheap DVD player or something.

    Your right. I just did a search and came across one for sale on ebay. its called a AcBel API2ST01. I wonder if I could use it for something else with that molex. Not sure how much power it puts out though. I'll see what all I can find on it.

    Thanks

    It will likely be anywhere from 1-2 amps on each rail. The chinese "laptop charger" style molex bricks these days do 2A on each.

    Well, I've been a bit too busy with work, hence my lack of contribution. But my plan, the moment I start the vacations, is to get a rig working for my HD2600X2. Solely for DX9 games. I will also continue on the hunt for a better chassis for my NF7-S setup which, for now, is in a crowded chassis with limited air-flow. :)

    good CPU for it's time the barton core had a bigger L2 which made it well worth the money but for clocking you couldn't go past an AthlonXP-M 2500+

    I'm not really thinking of clocking mine, unless it is a small bump. It already has a history of OC, so I want to keep it running for as long as possible now.

    I don't think I've ever killed a CPU by OCing it yet even a mild OC to bring it upto 3200+ speeds would last for years as long as you've got good cooling on it

    my mate currently uses an AXP 3200+ barton and has been ocing it for the last 12mths to 2800MHz he's using my old Hyper 212 and a home bracket to fit it onto socket A it looks great but my god it's huge and is cooler OC'd than it was non OC'd with the standard sktA HSF

    I got a Thermaltake Volcano 11+ Xaser I was running on my XP-M @ 2.4 ghz. Keep it nice a cool also. Also looks great on the old Nf7-s SKT A board.
