    Yeah, one of my friends said the same thing a few weeks ago lol. It's a good cooler, all aluminum, dissipates heat very well.

    I dual boot with Windows XP Pro and Crunchbang.

    Got more P2/P3 Xeon stuff.

    P3 "Pseudo-Xeon" SL4HE 1Ghz/256kb. Basically just a Coppermine in a Slot-2 form factor.

    Intel MS440GX Board

    It's actually an OEM board for Gateway, but I flashed the crappy Gateway bios with the Intel one. It's limited to 550Mhz P3 Xeons though, the Intel bios seems to have been gimped to prevent people from flashing Gateway boards to upgrade to 700 or 900Mhz Xeons.

    Probably one of the coolest boards I have. It'll run both Slot-1 and Slot-2 processors.

    you may find the odd MP enabled AXP but for the most part it's a single cpu only if your lookin at Athlon XP CPU's

    Got some slot-1 stuff here. The first board is from my old P2 NEC rig. The case was in pretty bad shape so I gutted it and kept most of the parts, there's a P2 266Mhz on it, but it ran with the P2 350Mhz pictured separately. It ran originally with the ATI 3D Rage Pro.

    I came across the Tyan board by chance on ebay. It was dirt cheap and I really like dual-cpu stuff, so I jumped on it. It has a pair of 600Mhz Katmais on it, but I'm pretty sure it'll probably run Coppermines up to 850Mhz and possibly faster.

    Last set of pics is the Quantum3D Obsidian2 200SBi I have in my retro Xeon rig. It's essentially a single-board version of the Obsidian X-24 (Voodoo2 SLI). They were used in arcade systems and professional and military-grade simulation systems and could be run in parallel with up to three other cards, provided you had the required bridging hardware etc.

    Intel SE440BX + P2 266Mhz SL28L + P3 350Mhz

    That is pretty cool. Reminds me of an old custom "enclosure" I found a while back made out of copper piping for a dual P3 Xeon setup. Heh, based on the same board I'm running in my retro Xeon rig. Unfortunately those are pretty much the best pictures I can find of that rig. I wonder if it still exists...

    MSI K8T Master2-FAR

    The board I would have been running back in high-school, if I had the dosh to afford one back then. It's got a pair of Opteron 250s on it. Looking around for some heatsinks that'll fit since they stuffed everything into the space of a standard ATX board. The mounting holes are non-standard for Socket 940 Opterons and take Socket 603/604 Xeon mounting hardware.

    Also, benchmarked my retro Xeon rig.

    Yep, there's the K8N Master2-FAR. Looks pretty decent, but there's Tyan board that has a lot better layout. Can't remember what model though.

    Also...

    Installed an LED strip in the Xeon rig. 3dfx Orange FTW.
