I know @Norton has been busy with life, but he expressed with me an interest in offering up a DIY retro build as part of the next giveaway that he's still working on getting setup as his free time allows. Hopefully he doesn't mind me posting this here since everything is not officially announced yet, but I thought I'd try to save him a little work. I've got a good bunch of hardware to put towards for making (what I think would constitute as) a high-end XP gaming machine and I thought I'd just post it up here. Here's what the DIY build would consist of:

CPU: Phenom II x4 940 (AM2+)
MB: ASRock K10N780SLIX3-WiFi
RAM: 2x2GB DDR2 Corsair XMS2
GPU: BFG GTX 280 & a flashed BFG GTX 285 (which is flashed with the 280 BIOS - GPU was faulty with the 285 BIOSes used on it, out of curiosity in an attempt to get it working, I tried putting the 280 BIOS on it and it worked) to run in SLI
Heatsink: Zalman 9500A
PSU: CoolerMaster SilentPro 1000W
Soundcard: ASUS Xonar DG 5.1
(Pics of hardware can be seen under the spoiler at the end of this post)

I'm lacking a case, HDD and copy of XP - though I might have a XP Pro 32bit copy buried somewhere in my stuff.

Everything comes in original packaging except for the flashed GTX 285 - I used to have the GTX 280 box (285 was sent to me for a RMA), but my younger brother trashed the box after I lent him the card......that punk.

Everything when last tested 1.5-2 years ago was in working condition. I even found a link of the 3DMark Vantage for the flashed GTX 285 and one of the actual GTX 280 cards. You can see that both cards have a very similar graphics score.
Flashed GTX 285 card running as a 280 on 3DMark Vantage: http://www.3dmark.com/3dmv/5389525
Actual GTX 280 card under 3DMark Vantage: https://www.3dmark.com/3dmv/5395691

I don't have a link for both cards in use under 3DMark Vantage, but I do have one of the actual system (listed above, except for the heatsink, I was probably using a Corsair H50) when I was using Vista in 3DMark 06: https://www.3dmark.com/3dm06/14466833

CPU - able to get this CPU on this MB up to 3.71GHz with proper cooling and high enough voltage of around 1.525 if memory serves me right)
View attachment 99661

MB (short 1 SATA cable). MB drivers only support XP and Vista OS. Stock, default settings in BIOS runs the voltage - if I remember correctly - on the CPU by .5V higher than needed if you plan on running the CPU at stock settings.
View attachment 99662

RAM - not sure about their OC potential. I kept the FSB and RAM async when overclocking so I didn't have to dink with the RAM voltage and timings.
View attachment 99663

GPUs
GTX 280 - I don't remember if I applied new TIM. Card was last tested 1/13/16 (https://www.3dmark.com/3dmv/5395691)
View attachment 99664

Flashed GTX 285 - Looks used and abused, but she works when last tested. Had new TIM applied before testing. Last tested 1/2/16 (https://www.3dmark.com/3dmv/5389525)
View attachment 99665

Heatsink/fan - was able to run this PII x4 940 at 3.4 or maybe 3.5 on this cooler
View attachment 99666

PSU - lacking power cable. Last tested and working early 2017.

I have an old Lian Li v1200 case you can have for the build, if someone would be kind enough to cover shipping. It's been painted, but is still in good condition. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112089





it's in better condition than the pictures look. It just needs a good wipe down and blow out

Nice case to offer up. Thank you.

We clearly still have all the details to work out, but I'm sure we could find help on getting the shipping costs covered as everything comes together. I'd offer to work on building the DIY retro system, but I really don't have spare room anywhere to set it all up. When my computers have any issues and I have to pull things apart I'm tying up the dining room table and also hogging up extra space with a card table.....just no spare room for me to do things really. Wife gets pissy about it if I'm tying up all the room when working on computers.....

I have plenty of room here, send the internals to me and I'll assemble it and ship it to whoever gets it.

I, for one, would be all over entering for that awesome nostalgic build!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That would be a frigging hoot to mess with!!!!!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

And, I KNOW I have an extra Windows XP key to anyone that wins this system. I'd be more than happy to donate that.
I think I have an extra 250 gig or 320 gig SATA hard drive as well..............It's a 2.5" WD Scorpio Black and pretty sure it's a 250 gig. That would also go with this. :D

@Norton Once things get up and running for the next giveaway. I've got a Razer Kraken USB headset that I can contribute. They're practically new, only used them for 4-6 hours.

Everyone, have a good Memorial Day weekend with your friends and family!

AND we also have an Old School build going on (with @neatfeatguy and @BarbaricSoul) - will post updates on that build as it comes together

So I guess I need to start to put this AMD x4 940/GTX 280 dual SLI rig together (I'll probably start that tonight, the parts have just been sitting in the box in the corner of my room since they arrived at my house)

where do i look if i want to contribute to the old school build and what means a couple more gifts eu or us?
and if i send something is it to europe or to us?
Forum generosity often exceeds the parts needed for the build and we're able to do a giveaway of some hardware and other items in addition to the build :)

Where we give away those items depends on what area the donations come from and/or the amount of funds available to ship an item.

Example- if an EU member donates a graphics card we'll usually draw a winner from EU.

Check the links in the OP for past giveaways- we have done giveaways to many parts of the world in Kreij's honor! :lovetpu:

All the parts needed for the old school build have already been donated, but thank you anyways. @neatfeatguy has donated most the components aside from a HHD (500 gb Seagate 7200.12) and case (Lian Li V1000b) which I'm donating and a Windows XP key donated by @stinger608

System will be-

CPU: Phenom II x4 940 (AM2+)
MB: ASRock K10N780SLIX3-WiFi
RAM: 2x2GB DDR2 Corsair XMS2
GPU: BFG GTX 280 & a flashed BFG GTX 285 (which is flashed with the 280 BIOS - GPU was faulty with the 285 BIOSes used on it, out of curiosity in an attempt to get it working, I tried putting the 280 BIOS on it and it worked) to run in SLI
Heatsink: Zalman 9500A
PSU: CoolerMaster SilentPro 1000W
Soundcard: ASUS Xonar DG 5.1
HHD: 500 gb Seagate 7200.12 w/ Windows XP installed

@Norton Kreij was the best, alright. Always there when you needed him. Epic to see the memorial continue after so long. :cool:

I don't have any computer bits to donate, so I'd like to donate to charity in his name. Do you have a particular one in mind, or shall I just pick one?

One day when work isn't hectic, I want to build one of the memorial rigs. Hopefully soon.

I can donate $100, you can use it for parts or PP prize(s). Whatever works best.
