Some great stuff you have there Bruce.
not to try and knock you but werent you ever told not to handle electronics by their contacts?
This may sound strange... but some people don't conduct electricity as much as others. I can touch all over a mobo and nothing happens. Then my friend will just touch it and its dead... this is when I figured this out. I think I heard something like this on Discovery. I've never had a problem with shorting anything or getting to much skin oil on them... but yea its usually not a good idea. But, back then things were built a little tougher.
Edit: fixed a slight grammar issue... in bold
Yes back then stuff was built to last. Proof is in that the stuff still runs today.
Awesome old hardware Bruce!!!!!!!!!
I have very respectively added your name to the original post man!!!!!!!!
I've got that same PSU. Comes pretty handy. Also my OCTANUX guts:
found some gameplay video running on my last 98 build before I took it apart... for w/e reason lol
duke nukem 3d.3gp - YouTube
well its the game's built in gameplay demo or w/e its called. I honestly don't remember exactly why I took the thing apart.
well im the kind that has to be extra careful because of the charge i build, ive killed too much from doing what you did so i dont do it, plus its something i learned being in the Military working on Planes
Yea I bet they had some really sensitive components... in that situation I'd take every precaution since more is at stake
its the fact of the price, a Single Part can cost as much as the worlds most expensive super car
Not ancient but old... My one of my ATI 9800 pros... Can spy two bartons in the background.. a 2200+ and a 3200+ from memory (faulty memory so no guarantees lol)
My watercooled rig... Koolance had just come out with the exos system at the time. Had an A7N8X Asus mobo.. 9800pro, overclocked 2200+, original corsair XMS memory.. 4gb! Original 32gb or something like that raptors in raid 0 and a enermax power supply. For the time... it was a freaking ballistic missile. I remember taking it to a large lan party and had many jaws on the floor as it was quite high end for the time.
A watercooled shuttle I built... With watercooled 9800pro
Need to dig up some pics of my other gear...4200ti's... other various ATI gear. Oh the painful memories money wise... The 9800 pro with zalman heatsink is still going strong BTW in my friends / kids school PC!
know what year and week the 3200+ was made?
Very awesome man!!!!!!!! Thanks for sharing, and I included your user name in the original post man.....
Sweet stuff man. I still run a few Dragon cases. I do love them and they have pretty good air flow.
You still have the koolance system by anychance?
eidairaman1 - Been so long I have no idea. Took those photos about 10 or more years ago!
ThE_MaD_ShOt - got rid of the koolance stuff probably 6 years ago. Still good gear and can be used today. Would not mind having another exos but my new case will not allow it to sit on top like that.
Thanks guys! Overall very cool seeing all the old gear.
If I find one I am going to have a field day LOL.
I may have something for you then
Cool man. I have always though those Koolance system where well cool looking.
so im guessing you dont have dem chips no more
I have a bunch of socket A stuff packed away in my collection.
Here's a few bits I have laying about for some testing...
Maybe not old enough but they'll be staying with me for a long while
Here's a few oldie shots
Got loads more
Just pick up a XP-M chip. They clock easier and farther then regular Barton chips do. And you can get one for next to nothing on Ebay now. I personally use the Xp-m 2500+. The 2400's are good to. Ask Stinger about them. He is running one.
Any chance you'd part with that G92 8800GT?
