Videocards, soundcards, some controller cards.
Nice haul, it's pretty hard to find the Master2-FAR that supports dual core Opterons, mine will only run up to Opteron 250s.
talk about luck ... my Master3 run with 2 250 like you ... and he has 2 285 daaaaaaaaaaaah
hopefully it will run up to 270 with the last bios ... but i still have to find a good deal on those ...
On MSI's site and main page for the motherboard it shows the 285's as being supported with the latest bios.
Also need to find one of those little 40 mm chip set fans for it. The one on it is dead. Probably why the guy was having crashing and booting issues.
As I said, the next day I throw the next photo, today portion of memory and processors in Slot 1: Pentium 2, Celeron, and riser Slot1-Socket 370, memory is: SIMM, SIMM EDO, SD, DDR1, SO-DIMM DDR2, and DDR2, and mobo with Intel Pentium at Socket 5, i430FX.
There are two versions of the Master2-FAR board, one is the MS-9130, which only supports up to Opteron 250s, the other is the MS-9617.
I believe the power delivery circuitry is different between the two versions, so the MS-9130 might work with dual cores, but it'll probably take a dump at some point. I think the older version cannot provide the lower voltages the dual core Opterons need.
Played with the Packard Bell tonight. Removed the barrel battery, got it to play disk 1 of The Wall (software config error, not hardware) and got it to keep the settings.
Running lightning fast it's a 33 MHz 486 SX, 20 megs ram, 170 meg hard drive, probably 4x CD-ROM, Aztech Sound Galaxy NX Pro 16 sound card and a random Intel network card. Running on the original install of MS-DOS 6 and Windows 3.1 as it left the factory. Only upgrades in this are the ram and network card which I added myself.
mmm...that familar front.
Totally awesome lightning fast 486 SX!
Added a network card, with mTCP I can IRC from this, run a FTP server, access FTP servers, etc. Pretty soon I'll even be able to run a webserver.
Unfortunately this thing came with a battery barrel, which was starting to leak but didn't cause any damage. Pulled that off and I'm using the external battery header with a CR2032 now.
It does keep the BIOS settings and the time now, no more entering the HDD's CHS on startup. One issue with this machine is I can't enter the BIOS unless I remove the battery to clear the CMOS or disconnect the hard drive or floppy or whatever.
Found this dumped where I work... Case is busted up pretty bad, but the machine still works
Skt 754 Sempron 2600+
look what i found back while doing some cleaning ...
yep my 1600Pro (tho on the box i clearly remember 1650...) the IceQ HSF is long lost and the card is probably dead ... but i keep it for records.
will try to take better pics once my SX100 will be usable again
So, now some newer hardware. Triple-head!
Miomiol dreams, three monitors in one pc, but three CRT monitors not LCD.
COMPAQ ARMADA 7770DMT
weeehehheheheheheeee i found a
Arima 40GCMO120-A830 HDAMA-I AMD Server Motherboard Opteron Socket 940 cheaper than the Rioworks (almost 2time cheaper including the shipping: 30.45chf) from Germany as well
now have to wait on Paypal actualization, and i found a seller in Minnesota with some Opty 275 (2pack for 20.16chf shipping include) i will wait a bit before ordering those i want to test the board with the 250 before to see if its really my Master3 who is faulty.
basically i found a cheaper deal with 2 different seller instead of the original bundle Riowork+2x270
Arima is Riowork tho but the PCB is blue and all electrolyte cap (the one with the heatshrink on it are also electrolyte no vent on them) plus even if no IO shield it use the same pattern as my actual Master3
What are planning on using this for? As there's no PCI-E or AGP, I'm guessing for use as an actual server?
well my actual "server" run on a MSI K8D Master3-133 FA4R and has a FX5200 PCI in it i don't use it as a server i just have one for the sake of having one
ofc if you go back in the thread: i could bridge a PCI-X to PCI-E X16 and add a LP entry level GPU but ... i don't mainly care i am a collector when i find a good deal on a old piece of hardware : i jump on it!
I hear that. I recently bought an Intel SBT2 dual P3 Xeon server board, pretty much only because it was still in retail packaging and had all the accessories. Of course now I'm looking for a Voodoo 5 5500 PCI to run on it, because why not.
Pics to come later on.
Today I throw pics of testing this configuration:
Pentium 3 1Ghz
Geforce 2 Titanium 64MB DDR moded by me, 80mm cooler with trash
Creative Sound Blaster Live CT4830
40GB Segate Barracuda
Power Supply LC-A300ATX
and 17 "AOC CRT" Monitor
Coppermine core! Surely you can OC it a bit?
Not on this board, I tried and did not make it.
Guess what guys?
I found a 256MB PC133 SDRAM module in the box what I got from my friend, and the P3-866 also works! Now I need to find my Win2000 or XP cd
Also put my #2 rig working, will put pics on both machines tomorrow
Nice ad from the past, found in the depths of the Internet. 8499.00$
My girlfriend gave me 2 old Dell computers, one has an old Nvidia GPU. I will post picks once I get back home and clean them up.
Apparently HP produced a workstation that used the Asus XG-DLS dual xeon board. Trying to find out exactly what machine this would have been. Only slot-2 based HP workstation I know of is the Kayak XU and that's a proprietary board.
Older HP workstations are pretty neat in that some of them use rebadged retail boards. Example: the Kayak XM600 uses the Asus P3C-D board.
Anyone have some info on these older machines? Seems there's very little online for some of these older HP machines.
Today I'm going to post some newer hardware. For now, grab these monsters. Overclocked Athlon XP Barton worked on It before, now It's mine for past 3 years
These are PC4400 (DDR550) >
Twinmos Twister PC4000 (DDR500) >
ADATA Vitesta PC4000 (DDR500) >
some OCZ >
Corsair PC3500 >
with lightshow ...
As I mentioned before, the best results I got with the ADATA Vitesta with red pcb.
