    I've got a fine CD for DFI-boards, too. It's uploading at the moment. Just burn the .iso on a cd and start from cd. > http://www.file-upload.net/download-9407678/V11.1.1.iso.html

    Hehe ... Ok, let me explain. The V1 was a flying bomb with a ramjet-engine. It was not very fast and could be intercepted by fast allied planes (like the Spitfire, the american P51 Mustang, P38, P47, ...) just by tipping a wing on the V1 wing. The V2 was a real rocket with supersonic speed and...

    I count the 2 DFI's as one ;). A clear point is, I forgot the AN7. That was maybe, I never had the opportunity to find one at the right price. I always have to look after the money, so some wishes remain wishes ... .

    The NF7-S Rev.2.0 is the second best socket A motherboard ever built. My opinion ;). I'm really a fan of the NF7-S. I've had one back in 2003, and the Abit was the first board I thought of when I deceided to build a nostalgic-system. As it was the board in my main-system I was pretty lucky with...

    Nasdrovje Wom! Since the Version with the 4 Cuplex waterblocks somehow didn't perform as I thought (the flow of the pump was reduced by ca. 50% and I couldn't make out any mistake), I'm proceeding step by step, pelt by pelt ;). The pump ist the same, the Phobya DC12-400, as radiators I put...

    I wouldn't take tape. There are many socket A waterblocks with special socket A mounting clamps. For example the Aqua Computer "Cuplex" or the old Watercool "Heatkiller". You can get both pretty cheap at ebay. If you cannot find anything and as I feel a little responsible for the system...

    Compared with the DFI, the Asus is crap! The DFI is worth 50 times more than the Asus! You can get a Lian Li and a rad whenever you want, the DFI is rare, VERY RARE! Just a pic >

    The cooling for the hot side. So far, but I'm not happy with it. I destroyed one cover because I accidently mounted it upside down. It's still watertight, and I put some 5min. epoxy on it to be on the safe side, but that is not the problem. I don't know why, and I've never seen it before, but...

    These are Eheim 1046. They are not very powerful. Ok, a pump is powerful enough for a watercooling as long as its able to let the water flow, and all my Eheims (I got 3x 1046) were presents from other watercooling-enthusiasts with more money ;). But, if u are in the situation to buy a pump, get...

    I am unemployed at the moment and so I'm always pretty broken. I cannot afford a "Heilea" or another chiller. Maybe somewhen in the future. But I'm still having the idea of a peltier-booster. The hot side watercooled, the cold side cooles the water for the system. I would arrange the tubes...

    It's not a 1080 rad (u mean the huge ones?). In the parcel were a 80 & a 120mm rad. Thats the 80mm. All together I got now 4x 360mm (2x MagiCool slim 360, 1x XSPC RX360, 1x Airplex EVO 360 (which I will swap against another XSPC RX360), 1x 240mm (crappy Thermaltake), 3x120mm (1x Watercool...

    A guy from P3D sent me a "care-parcel". All for free! I am a lucky handicrafter! After cleaning & polishing the coolers look like new.

    It's the heatspreader thats made of copper. The heatspreaders are nickel-plated and the nickel was sanded off. These are the remains of an A64 HS. I made parts for the DFI chipset-cooler out of it. As for the thermal paste, I always used AS5, but since about 1 year I prefer Cooler Master...

    Take your time! Most sellers are trying to get the weight of the card in gold. Just wait, look for bundles, search the offerings piece by piece. Often you find sellers who don't know anything about Voodoo or 3dfx. These are the ones where you get the cheap cards. And, as I said, simply wait...

    Thanks for the good eye. I even don't know if the card is working. Never tested it ;). But a bulging cap should be no problem (I'm using Epox EP-8K5A3+ boards for my Voodoo 5- systems, so I'm used to exchange caps ).

    I'm not really interested in the Permedia because there were better chips, but it's an interesting piece of hardware though. As I'm collecting old hardware, there will be always a place, even for the 2nd winner ;). From 3Dlabs/ dynamic pictures I've got some cad-cards. The OXYGEN 402 is really a...

    These cards are afair from 1997. They are years older than the Radeon 9800. Also they are just 3D-accelerators, you need another (2D) graphics-adapter to make them run. The Voodoo Graphics-Chipset was the first way to have (for the time they were on the market) performant 3D-graphics on the PC.

    Another try with the digicam. It's not really as easy as it seems. When you want a clean white background, the cards always look somehow artificial. Maybe I'll test some other lighting later and the pics get better. As I see in this moment, 1 chip of the Diamond Monster seems broken, but...

    Some pictures of my latest activities. I bought some radiators at ebay. They look a little used, but the function is 100%. From left to right: 2x Magicool 360 slim, XSPC RX360, Airplex EVO 360. The XSPC was painted with fresh black spraypaint. I screwed this one together with the Airplex...
