    My High End AGP Cards!

    Finally got around to posting some of my junk, Here is my highest end AGP Cards and also a PhysX card to couple with the 3850 AGP. I will get around to posting my 50cpus soon, and my Abit IC7 Max 3/P4 3Ghz/3850AGP System, Dual P Pro 1mb Cache gaming rig, and my Dual P3 1.4Ghz System, etc.

    My poor 4670 was overheating on its Bridge chip, so I went to remove the thermal pad to add a copper sink. I scraped a bit to hard and knocked off a resistor the size of a piece of hair. I literally wanted to punch my self for such a stupid act. If anyone has a HIS 4670 AGP they want to sell, Please inbox me!!!

    But here is some AGP eye candy

    HIS 3850 AGP 512MB (With ASUS DirectCU Cooler) (For ABIT IC7-Max 3 system)
    HIS 4670 AGP 1GB (DEAD, Bridge chip died fml)
    HIS 1950PRO AGP 256MB (For my P3 Dual System)
    XpertVision 6660GT 256Mb x2 (Spares)
    Nvidia 7800GS AGP 256MB ( G71 Version :[ )
    Powercolour X850XT PE AGP 256MB (Older P3 Rig, and test card)
    BFG PhysX PCI Card (Pair with 3850)

    Wish I had a 6800 Ultra AGP, and a 7950GT AGP to add to this!

    Pics? I'm myself an AGP "enthusiast" too, used to have plenty of them but I just kept the 5500, 3850, 4670, 7950GT and a 2600XT that I found in a flea market. They're in use too (see sig).

    I have a broken 6600GT too somewhere. Maybe I should try and repair it.

    Sorry, crappy Flickr broke the url.

    Ive got a lot of other AGP cards from TNTs to FX5500s. I got S3s, Matroxs and Voodoos in the mix also. I have a huge addiction with the HIS AGP cards, great fun to play with!

    Ive seen your systems, I am very jelly. I got my hands on a Asrock AGP/PCI Express board with a 775 socket. I should build it up.

    Also did you add cooling to the bridge chips on the AGP cards?, they idle at 120c on the core if not heatsinked. I got above 3870 clocks on the 3850 after doing that haha

    Hit the jackpot!

    So, today I got a call from a mate who knew I was after old hardware. I later arrive home with these goodies for FREE! :respect:

    [​IMG]

    A brand new 4670 Powercolour AGP, ASUS 9800XT 256MB, A Volt moded Abit IC7-MAX3, and a 3Ghz 1mb Pentium 4 chip with a copper thermaltake cooler :rockout:

    I will also be getting 4GB of DDR-1 500 Ram from him, and a Foxconn Socket 775 Blackops motherboard from him.

    Very good day I had.

    I never knew they had one also, I have the HIS 4670 also, before I killed the poor thing. Now that I got my hands on a new 4670 I wonder if I should build up up a system with the 4coredual-vsta board i've got? Or go get a AM2NF3-VSTA?

    I now got 2 IC7-MAX3s, I wonder if I should just run the 3850 in one and the 4670 in the other. For now i'll whack the 4670 in my Dual P3.

    I'll get some pictures later on for you guys :)

    Because that won't bottleneck it at all, lol.
    Joking aside, that's a nice collection of AGP cards you have.

    So here is my P4 system, I also have another IC7-MAX3 that has been VDimm voltmodded. Once I get my hands on proper ram aka DDR-500 I will push the CPU to 4ghz If I can.

    I also hit a Crazy OC on the 3850, I now need more volts!!. MW2 runs at 60FPS @ 1080p Maxed settings with 2x Antilasing.

    Enjoy!

    Pentium 4 3 Ghz 1MB @ 3.4GHZ
    ABIT IC7-MAX3
    HIS 3850AGP (DirectCU Cooled)
    3GB DDR400 Ram
    250GB WD HDD
    Antec 550watt
    Zalman Reserator 1 with Alloy Rad

    I really need to get my hands on a good HDD or SSD...


    And also here is my P3 Build, I swear it destroys my P4 sometimes.. I will get around to benchmarking both soon!

    Dual Pentium 3 1.4ghz
    CUV4X-DLS
    PowerColour 4670 AGP

    I always loved the Reserators. Too bad back when they were prevalent I didn't have the cash for one and nowadays TDP is so high it wouldn't be effective.

    I got the Reserator from a local seller for $35 with all the clamps, mountings, etc. It has insane build quality, I wonder why it was so expensive in the day.

    Biggest issue with them was the poor flowing pump and poor waterblocks.

    I was tempted to rebuild it with a EK block, thick tubing, massive pump, and a tube to get the water up to the top of the tank. It should handle a 3770k pretty well. This Pentium 4 puts out around 110watt tdp with its OC.

    I wish there was an all copper Reserator :(

    Your pics prompted me to pickup the parts I need to finish my AGP rigs. I still need a black IDE and floppy cable for my Octanux and the phenomenal and scraps builds need some pimping too.

    Yep the fire breathing Prescott, But it's lapped.

    It Idles at 35 - 50c depending on what it's doing, I'm starting to think it's just maxed at 100% usage all the time due to Windows 7 and all the eye candy. Oh well i've seen other Prescott's do 100c lol

    I went through some hard times, after splitting up with my GF I was with for 7yrs, was homeless for a while :'( But I have a flat now so things are looking up.

    This is why I am trying to beg or buy for pennies a A64 x2 chip and a couple of gb of DDR1.

    And it does game but not very well really.

    With the advent of modern PC's, the worlds power consumption must have halved.

    That is a big ass HDD.
