Don't you just adore the 90s? By the time you plugged in AGP card, 3D video accelerator (or two, for the SLI config.), fax modem, DVD encoder card, Audio Card enhancer & sound card itself, you would fill the entire computer case with expansion cards. Not including the full-size ATX board (Slot-1?) with loads of IDE/ATA cables going in all directions... :D

I love it! :love:

I picked up an old system. It's a Dell XPS410. They started as P4 BTX Mid Tower, but can make the leap to 65nm Core2 Extreme ( very unofficial ) . It's nostalgic for me because it's the big brother to the Dimension E520 in my sig. that was in #2 spot at CPUZ for the QX6800 for a couple years. I have a couple better BTX cooling mods now, and a few more tricks up my sleeve so I may take another shot at CPUZ. It's in pieces right now. I have a couple other projects going on. This thing just showed up out of the blue and the capacitors look perfect.

200W on the 5V. rail. Those were the good old days.

As I saw your post, I remeber that I must have a similar board. Found it a little bit dusty in a box with my very old hardware.
My second PC was this Intel Pentium 60 build (overclocked to 66 MHz by onboard jumper) with floating-point bug.


TPU0004.jpgTPU0005.jpgTPU0006.jpgTPU0007.jpgTPU0008.jpgTPU0009.jpg

Got it end of 1994 as used PC, with a Cirrus Logic GD-5430 PCI graphics card and 2x 4MB RAM. Change the RAM immidiatly to 2x 8MB so that i have the same amount of memory as in my 386 DX40 (with ATI Mach32 ISA) before. Sold the 386 with the case of the P60 because the P60 was VERY expensive even as used PC.

Just found a nice place to work at and the owner said I can feel free to take any board I like.

Came home with these:
DFI Infinity NFII-M2
Jetway N2PAP-LITE
ASUS P4C800 Rev2.00A
ASUS M2N 1394
MSI G41M-P26
ASUS K8N
ASUS A7N8X-X
MSI P45 Neo-F
2 dead PS3s, one with a 250GB HDD inside:rockout:

So far most of these work. There are two unlisted because these were dead (ASUS M2NPV-VM and MSI K9N4 Ultra) and at least three of them had bad caps. (Jetway N2PAP-LITE, ASUS A7N8X-X and MSI P45 Neo-F)

Back with an update on one of the PS3s - just managed to fix one of them, an CECHG04, by reflowing the RSX/Geforce 7800GTX.

It did came back to life, and does manage now to boot into the system :)

The bluray drive is dead though - it does take the disc in and eject it properly, but I suspect the bluray side is dead, and the DVD side may be too.

Oh well. I'm not going to use it too much though, and the reason behind this is the 90nm RSX. Good god, if you guys thought the Prescott P4s and Smithfield Pentium D's were hot, you really haven't met the first generation of PS3s (up to and including CECHHxx models)

I hope the reflow does last, as it's been done at 350*C for about 3-4 minutes. I also took some preventive measures to prolong its life by removing the cover from the PSU (an german Youtuber named UltraNSC has done the same and said it's a good measure to make it last longer).

Other than that, a peek at the system version revealed a somewhat nostalgic sight: it's still on 4.31! I was expecting at least 4.78 or 4.80 with the lowest I could expect being 3.55 or 3.56 though.
It's going to be modded anyways, so stay tuned, maybe I can keep this G04's roaring RSX at nice temps. (the fan doesn't ramp up a lot like my long gone G04 did)

And finally, I'm leaving a shot here so you can see how it looks now :)

The top cover comes from the dead CECHH04, but the rest of the top case is the original one that came with the console.

@lexluthermiester,
Intel Batman and Intel Batman's Revenge are names given by Intel to this Boards.

There are all Intel Chipsets with names and some original Intel Motherboards have a name, too.
I think nearly nobody uses the BP5D60ATCS2 as name for this board.

An other Motherboard with Intel name is the D975XBX, known as "Bad Axe". One of the first sockel 775 boards with three PCIe x16 slots (only mechanical, electrical only x8/x8/x8).

For all Intel names see

No its about Computer related hardware that you preferably own ( :) and Software on Hard media ie floppy or CD/DVD).
From what I've seen through the years, it's about any hardware that gives a feeling of nostalgia. Generally from what I've seen it's been stuff 10 years or older, but that's not a stated rule.
