    1980First circuit boards that have built-in self-testing technology
    [​IMG]
    Chuck Stroud, while working at Bell Laboratories, develops and designs 21 different microchips and three different circuit boards—the first to employ built-in self-testing (BIST) technology. BIST results in a significant reduction in the cost, and a significant increase in the quality of producing electronic components.

    Looking at this rig I always wondered who tought it could be a good idea to point the exhaust fan of GPU toward the inside of the case instead of outside through the back slots.

    why not use TPU image hosting instead of that ...

    i have no popup problems with that site but i prefer TPU image hosting and the "add file" button just right of "post reply" ... less hassle

    The "add file" button is freaking awesome! No need to use any hosting site at all! It's the biggest improvement Xenforo has given TPU!

    This was a fast socket A- system with a watercooled Abit NF7-S and a Radeon HD3850AGP.

    My latest project is a "youngtimer". A DFI CFX3200 Crossfire Motherboard with two Radeon X1950XTX. The CPU is an Athlon64 3700+ @ 3,1+GHz.

    To test different parts I built a benchtable out of parts of an old Compaq-tower.

    All VIA chipset and SATA controller.
    Be advised, VIA chipsets have no PCI/AGP locks on them. If you up the FSB the other bus's increase also. It won't be long before you run into data corruption or bios corruption issues. NF2 boards are the way to go. You just need to find a decent one.

    @ Backfire, Awesome hardware man!!!!!! I actually have an Abit NF7-S in retail box. Ole sucker is damn near new LOL. Also just received a DFI Lanparty UT NF4 DR Expert with a Opteron 175, and 4gb of ram for the cost of shipping! Only thing wrong with it was the chipset fan was bad. Had a tall aluminum chipset heat sink to put on it, and that puppy booted right up!

    Needless to say Backfire, I added ya to the original post for some awesome hardware! :respect: :respect: :respect:

    I'm a big fan of Voodoo-magic, too. My Voodoo Graphics boards:

    3dfx Voodoo Graphics - A-Trend Helios 3D, 1200 02.JPG

    3dfx Voodoo Graphics - Colormaster Voodoomania 3D, 1200 02.JPG

    3dfx Voodoo Graphics - Diamond Monster 3D, 1200 02.JPG

    3dfx Voodoo Graphics - miro HISCORE 3D, 1200 02.JPG

    3dfx Voodoo Graphics - Typhoon 3D MAX, 1200 02.JPG

    3dfx Voodoo Graphics - Orchid Righteous 3D, 1200 02.JPG

    But they weigh up the cards in gold over here, and I've not much money to spend.

    btw. the red board on the benchtable is a DFI, too. It's a NFII Ultra Infinity. Fastest socket A- board I ever had.

    Another thing I'm interested in are CPU- coolers for the sockets 7 and 462/A and slot A. Just for all old AMD- processors.
