Hi all

Thought i'd show off my recently acquired Voodoo5-6000 Revision 3700A with the PCI-Rework. Big thanks to Gold Leader from VoodooAlert for tracking down this gem in just 3 days!

It is fully functioning and has passed a 2 hour stress test of 3D Mark 2001SE!, I will be adding to this thread once I finished the permanent system/home for it!

Here it is :)

Closeup of the Backside Front. I have also added Enzotech Copper Heatsinks to the rear of the VSA-100 Chips to help protect/prolong the life of the BGA Solder Joints.

Ooh, nice! This card is in such good condition.

There's someone over on Vogons who posted a system with the same card, CPU and motherboard a few years back.

Can't wait to see more photos of a complete system. :)

If you acquired locally (city of churches), that may be Ryan Nunn's 3dfx gift for RGSSAA optimisation (IIRC).

I'd love to be able to find and afford a boxed Voodoo 5500... I'm not sure if I'd go PCI or AGP tho.....

Yeah, Ryan re-compiled the binaries for the OGL drivers for WinXP after 3dfx went under. I included them in my Bansheedrivers mix with the Voodoo 5 control panels.

Glad to see you got it running as well ,as you posted at x-3dfx :)
You could post pics of the system when it's completed tho, I'm glad I found a 6K for someone that takes good care of it, we needed that within the 3dfx community for quite some time :)

Brilliant idea when it comes to them burnt copper heatsinks, if you need any more help lemmie know.

Well if you need help I can always look around for ya :) as owner of the x-3dfx community I have plenty contacts to help a fellowman out :)
I just know where to look hehe and no not all go for a fortune the prototypes? yes they are very expensive a TITAN RTX is like 30% cheaper for some cards so no best not to take part of that unless you don't mind it.

A Rampage goes for well over 15K USD maybe even more and well to me that isn't worth it, it's capitalism at it's best, the actual value to me would be around 1200 Euro or say 1400 USD maybe but yea,..

Normal production cards can come for good deals if you are seeking a specific type let me know and I can see what I can find for you of course :)
