Erm... South Africa. Why do you ask?
He wants to ne your dumpster diving friend.
Lol, he's on his own with that then, I prefer not to dumpster dive for my hardware.
Funny story with that machine is, I work at a school and the pc was left half hidden next to our chapel. They phoned me half worried it was a bomb lol. I was pleasently surprised to find working hardware inside and not be blown up.
Wanted to ship a 3200+ athlon 754 but too far.
Nah, but I have a pair of Opteron 285s I was originally planning on using with an Asus K8N-DL, but couldn't one cheap enough.
Lol thanks is far though :/
Have to make sure it is the right board to support the 285's.
Once you get it, let me know the board number. Should be an "MS7456" or something like that. Take a look at these two pictures:
The top one from NewEgg has just a black chipset cooler. The bottom one from MSI has that gold chipset cooler. From what I have read the board with the black cooler is a later revision and supports the 285's. Even though the page on MSI has the correct drivers and info. Now I have read that a person, if you have the earlier version, can actually flash the bios with the newer version bios and be fine. Don't know for sure and once you get the board if it is the earlier version do some research.
Biggest issue is the later version chipset cooler is frigging garbage. That is what is out on mine.
Also keep in mind that a user has to have a power supply that should have the 8 pin motherboard AND the 4 pin motherboard. I am actually going to use and older 1000 watt Ultra that has both. If your power supply doesn't have one you can get the dual 4 pin molex to 8 pin CPU conversion adapter.
Ebay listing had a stock picture from newegg showing the MS-9620-020 which apparently is the later version that supports 285s, but the model number showed MS-9620-010. Guess I'll have to wait and see what it actually is when I receive it. Hoping it's the later version.
By golly I will man. I will be curious to see what benchies it throws up myself. LOL
I have a Cooler Master HAF 932 AMD edition case and I think I am going to put it in that puppy. I haven't had a system in that awesome case in a couple of years.
That would look pretty cool I think, seeing as it has the huge side window. LOL
wooohooohooo!!!! today is a great day!
aaannnddd : brand new + Factory sealed
I havn't been much in the forum lately, so, which cooler will you use for the A64? I'm asking, because I've made the experience that the heatspreaders of all A64 I used were massivly convex.
I always cut down the heatspreader. It's the only method (if you haven't a cooler that fits) that is really save (and it brings a few degrees).
oh i have no mobo for it i just brought it because it was at a merely 10chf end of bid price and because its brand new and still sealed as a bonus for my cpu collection
Ah, ok .
What is the socket? What is the number on it? Just wanna look for specs
i have to wait till i get it at home these pics are from the seller, more closeup sexy shot once at home
If find it sexy you really need to get a girlfriend
It could be a socket 754 or a AM2.
A post for the smaller ones. They have served, too.
I had all of them except the first one
I have none of them but I do have a Rage 128 pro full retailed boxed with all it accessories.
- one item finally arrived
- only one item arrived
well that's me right now ^^
Pics or it didn't happen!
Ah, sweet! One of the awesome 939 3800 dual cores! That was probably my all time favorite chip! Had one along with a DFI lanparty board that overclocked like a mad dog. Still have a 3800 chip just not the one I originally had.
LOL here is a pic of the gpu. I will post a pic of the box as soon as I retrieve it from storage.
I have the 4200+ version of this chip core model and it's a great chip in itself.
