Awesome man!!! Looking forward to the other items.
Added ya to the original post.
that would be Kilobits not KiloBytes ie: 1 56Kbps connection x ~1.25 to 1.75 = what shotgun could do it wasn't quite double and here in NZ those US Robotics modems were hella expensive ~$150+ for one then you had two accounts with an ISP and they had to support bonded modems blah blah blah you get the picture and that's pretty much why it never took off here as there was only one ISP that supported doing this and they knew it and charged accordingly
Thanks 95Viper,Stinger608, now as promised.....
OK Pc1, i think this was the first one my dad got, it went through several upgrades and ended with this(currently under maintenace so don't mind the mess)
GA-5AX,AMD K6-2 450,256MBx2+128MB ram, running WinME for oldies
20GB quantum fireball( currently trying several floppy drives so i can update the mobo's BIOS so it can support a 40GB hDD )
these are running in it: S3 savage3D 8MB, 3Dfx VooDoo2, creative soundcard
Intel D875PBZ, 2.8GHzPentium4
MSI Geforce4 Ti 4800 SE, Creative SB Audigy 5.1(Sadly the geforce started artifacting but stops when i press on its ram???)
some more random hardware in the spoiler for your pleasure
Leadtek winfast geforce3 Ti,geforce 2MX,riva TNT2 64,a couple of S3 cards
A few quantums with a bigfoot
That K62-450 will quite happily run at 500 I used to have the same chipset but on an Asus mobo and pity you don't live closer to NZ I could have sent ya another Voodoo 2 12MB for SLI (scan line interleave )along with the cable
Teach me , do i just adjust the blue CPU select switch or i have to do something else? (and you got me interested in that offer)
Probably a bad solder that finally started to fail. Could probably be repaired with a hot air soldering iron. Or you could bake the card for some ghetto reflow soldering action.
Swapped out the WinFast A350 for the A380. I really like the A350, but the A380 just runs a lot cooler. The ducted design the A350 uses must have a tendency to develop localized hotspots. It's also a bit quieter too, not by much though since the rest of the case cooling is so brute-forced.
right ok here goes.......see pic for JP position and switches
on the right of you pic you'll see the frequency chart for selecting the FSB make that 100MHz make JP 7/8/9/10 1-2 1-2 2-3 1-2
up by your CPU you'll see a chart for selecting the multiplier make that 5x instead of 4.5x make SW 1/2/3 X5 X O O (X = ON and O = Off )
and as easy as that you OC'd your K6-2 450 to 500MHz
Thanks Athlonite, btw i found the user manual for the motherboard and it says ( X=off, O= On) i guess you have a typo there?
Edit: Never Mind, did it with manual help and its on 500MHz
I guess I'm going to have to read up of this thread because my work computer just got downgraded. I now have to work with a gas chromatograph that connects via an ISA card, so I'm stuck with a P3 650MHz with 384MB of RAM. I've never appreciated until I started using that computer how much boot-up times have improved over the past decade.
Here's some updated pics of my S939 rig. It now has it's 8800 GTX's installed
Oh here is a screen shot from the sli rig with one card running.
Decacore processor yo
and remembering the times when computers were yellow,5.25 inch floppys, you can put like half a mp3 on those now.
I have one of those dell rigs in the closet. And it still runs fine.
I think all of these still worked, they were the schools and I got bored while helping them throw them out. I wish I could have kept some to crunch with but we cant take them according to TDSB policy. (im assuming you were talking about the one with the stack of processors, I threw the dell in the second picture out cuz it stopped working.)
I actually was meaning the one in the second picture, the whole dell rig. I forgot what the specs are for the one I have. I do know it's running win 98.
Just picked this up for the cost of shipping!!!
An Asus A7V266-E
Haven't posted it up yet, but will most likely try that tonight or tomorrow. Man I got my figures crossed. It was the first motherboard I purchased for a serious gaming rig back in the day.
I still have an original box, driver CD, and user manual for that puppy.
If anyone here has a socket 7, Via Mvp3 chipset full atx board with a agp slot, and you want to let it go let me know. That is going to be the focus of my next nostalgic build this spring/summer. I have a lead on one but really don't want to put out the money they want for it.
Board looks to be in good condition, it'll probably boot up fine.
Yep Socket A or 462
It does look to be in great shape. No blown or replaced capacitors. I have my figures crossed.
You shouldn't have any problems with him at all. You need a shim for insurance? LOL
Nope, never used them in the past LOL. Never crushed a chip then. Of course it has been awhile.
yup i did that to a 3200+ Barton cuz I modified the clip slightly to add more pressure, well it required more pressure just to press the clip into the locking barbs, so the die went caput lmao
Oh bummer!!!! I'll bet that kind of ruined your day. Was it the 400fsb 3200?
Speaking of which, I am actually looking for a 3200+ 400FSB chip if anyone knows where to locate one.
Damn Stinger I believe I have one in my Shuttle board. I also have about 5 or so 2500+ non mobiles.
LOL, didn't even realize I actually had one of the 400fsb 3200+ chips.
