    Those old dual CPU motherboards are so damn cool :toast:

    Found another 256MB PC133 stick and the Retro Rig detects 512MB, even the manual says it supports only 256MB. Now I just need winxp to it :)

    I have an Intel SRSH4 server that looks to have a very similar board layout and the 10-pin connector. When I get home I can tell you what it does on mine. Being a Pentium 4 Xeon Quad-processor system it doesn't see a lot of use as it draws more power than an Athlon X2 system while being slower.

    It's not the use, it's the feeling why we do this. ;)

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I am going to put another Athlon xp rig together here soon. This one I am going to stray away from the normal. LOL The Board is an Epox Krai pro with the Via Kt880 chipset.

    SBT2 specification manual indicates those proprietary front panel connectors are for LEDs and indicators apparently. Power and reset switches have their own separate headers which will accept standard power/reset switch connections. Lol, I hope this board boots without the 10-pin.

    I still have HD4850. Still great, after... 6 years! :toast:

    By the way, I'm thinking about changing case in my primary PC. How about It guys? :D (Link directly to offer in my country):
    http://tablica.pl/oferta/obudowa-big-tower-chieftec-dragon-da-01b-d-CID99-ID3oevF.html

    I wanted this, but seller don't sending It, only personal receive. Unfortunately, Wroclaw is too far from my city. Maybe Backfire will take it (German border). If I only had a car... :rolleyes:

    Yep, the 4800 series was amazing. Really wish I hadn't sold my 4870s.
    Has AMD had a socket that hasn't been great in some way?
    Oh hell yeah. My AMD rig is still in a Dragon-style case.


    Ha. This entire post was AMD.

    Guy like me caring about mother earth like to recycle old parts and make system back to life. Problem is that people go crazy and overprice old hardware so it ends up that everyone have parts but no full system. These parts will end up months later in dump probably.

    Before updating to the newest beta (I had previously the latest non-beta) the max fsb what I got was 302MHz, higher than that didn't even boot :toast:
