backfire: german hum ... small wordplay involving one RAM brand ...
"das ist geil!"
hehe . I had to google where they come from. It stands for "Golden Emperor International Ltd." and the company is located in Taipeh/ Taiwan.
I spent nearly the whole night photografing and working on the photos to sell some hardware at ebay.
I hope i will get enough money to afford two 360 x 120 x 60 mm radiators and some sheet-metal for the "Thai-Chi" project.
Arima HDAMA-I ordered and paid expected delivery 3-4days well if we exclude the week end i should receive it by next Wednesday or Thursday
14.95€ + 9.99€ std int shipping ... i have seen worse ... well as long as it doesn't exceed 62.50chf : no custom taxes
woops i thought you already known it ... tho it make a funny wordplay for Swiss and German people
no shit ...
not showing benchies ... but still ... if my DC7700P handle the 6700 that might be a good upgrade (if we can talk about upgrade in that ...) i found one for 12chf + 2chf delivery, still checking my financial status if i can take it (yep even 14chf is hard till the end of april)
eh ... pentium DC 6700 are stronger than C2D 6700 i guess its from the higher clock
too bad Pentium DC are harder to find than C2D
ok logical pent DC are more recent : 2010 instead of 2006 and die shrink + less L2 cache higher frequencies and higher max temp ... tho i wonder why i cant find any of them
not a bad thing i suspect that the board wouldn't handle it, even if its also a skt775/fsb1066
I am still running one of these in my sons pc..
second buy of the day.
C2D E6700 2.66GHz/4M/1066/06 (the one i wrote of, previously) in the end 14-15chf would be not so grieving on my budget.
I will see your intel and raise you an athlon....
look at my sys specs :
it is the only intel i have (6300 atm but soo the 6700 will take the place)
Athlon X4 760K/Phenom X4 9600B B3/2x Opteron 250/C2DE6300/AthlonXP 1.7ghz(2000+)@ 2,25ghz (2800+)
and that's for the running rigs ofc
or look back in the thread for the rest
also WOOHOO order update : Arima HDAMA-I marked as shipped
yo dawg OC that 5450 need moar oomph to play a bluray (well not really but i wanted to play with and see how the 240w PSU will do)
Here are the pictures I promised to you guys
I never really cared about where the company was located and what GEIL stands for. I had the slight idea they were an US-company.
And the wordplay, come on, its only the first time funny .
Guys we should probably start a thread of vintage parts for exchanging between each of us. But don't do like some adds here and not telling where you live
Like me I have some 478, 754 and 775 cpu, DDR 266,333,400 DDR2 533, 667, 800ram ,some cards and other stuff and I'm from Canada.
Germany - AMD/ ATI/ 3dfx/ Abit/ Epox/ DFI/ TerraTec/ Creative SB AWE/ Matrox - socket 7, slot A, socket 462/A, some socket 939, a little socket 3.
My friend's GF 4 Ti4200 128MB DDR 128Bit. Still works, modded by me and my friend some years ago.
@grunt_408: Of course I added ya to the original post man.
Trouble with that is we would have to follow the TPU guide lines and post in the "For Sale" forum.
We started to do that in the World Community Grid forum and got that shut down right away.
It would be tough to manage a for sale thread with multiple posters I would imagine. If the original poster was a moderator it would be a ton easier.
Guidelines are followed by moderators only when it's their advantage. We want to do something nice for others but if they cant take advantage of it then they going to shut us down.
Yesterday a parcel with 5 older graphic cards came in. Nothing really exciting. I just wanted the VLB- card for the 486er.
I saw the Canopus Voodoo-Graphics Card had a fan installed, and as the miro has the same pcb,
I put a fan on a miro HISCORE 3D. Maybe it helps and the card lives a bit longer.
A thing I have to invent, Voodoo Graphics Quad SLI ...
Damn those old ISA & PCI cards are cool! I also like the old ISA Sound Blaster's, SB64AWE Gold is my favourite.
Wow man! These Quad sli are like maybe...64megs total.
The AWE64 Gold is a pretty fine card.
My favourites are:
these are ISA- Cards, my absolute favourite is the PCI TerraTec DMX 6fire 24/96.
It's 24MB. These are 6MB Voodoo Graphics cards.
With a TEC?
Damn nice photography also Backfire!!
What are you using for your background? And what lighting are you using?
I also like the style of font your using on them. Pretty classy looking.
Hehe, I'm using a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 digicam and the background is a white sheet of thick paper. The lighting is various, from an officedesk- lamp up to two 100W halogen spots.
The magic is the software. I'musing IrfanView & PhotoScape which are both freeware. I'll show you a picture as it comes from the camera.
I just reduced the size to 800px width.
edit: the name of the font in the upper left corner is "neuropol", the name of the font for the "Backfire" sign is "flexsteel".
Wow, I'll have to check into the software!
I am using a Lumix DMC-FZ40. Very awesome camera. Got a smoking deal on it from one of the local members T_ski here on TPU.
