Cool, you must be like me and stuff everywhere.
Yea pretty much! Hell I found a Corsair HX620 that I had totally forgot I had.
That was a nice find seeing as I was in need of a power supply
Found by a dumpster:
The spoils of war:
What is the spec of that Pentium 3 Celeron?
I'll check tonigh.
Seems like someone is getting rid of his excess hardware, this morning I passed by the same dumpster and found another PC. The case had no panels, it was a slot 1 board with no AGP slot, missing heatsinks and some bulging caps BUT it had a Gigabyte slotket and a Sony IDE DVD burner Took those with me, pictures later.
I'm going to check tomorrow too
I have goodies too...
I'm at the right place; Maxed out 386 w/math co
Oh, and the software...
The tower still works-battery shot but I won't try the floppies anytime soon
slotket + celeron pic:
Man, I wish I was lucky enough to come across dumpster finds that good.
Awesome old hardware UART!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Added ya to the original post man. Welcome to the ole nostalgic club.
I actually have an Asus Slotket with a K6-2 400 I think. Man, now I wonder where in the hell that got to. I will have to try and find that. The Asus brand was like the Gigabyte and held their motherboard color. In Asus' case it was that Gold color there older boards were.
Universal Asynchronous Receiver Transmitter!
Absolutely! You got it! Was lucky to have such a name in real life. Good ol' Paw must've known
that I'll be on a chip diet when I get older so when my friends ask: "You Art?"
I say: "YES, yes I am."
As for the 486'es above, I'm passionate about this particular chip over the 386 & have several more...
That AM486 DX2-80 was a bad a$$ chip in its day!!!
Nice collection UART!!
heck how about Super 7
I had a 486 DX 4 120. One of my first PCs
I have that case... It was my sons first case mod. He was 12 at the time.
Had one of them myself!! I think a ton of them were sold back during the Socket A era. I have seen a lot of them.
wow what are the chances, i thought it was a rare one or something, looks good though
Just got these, were gonna be thrown out
Going to clean the s*** out of them today [/ocd], i think i can get them to work will post new pics and specs after cleanup
Good score Doc!!!!!!!
Did a "semi-thorough" cleanup, took a blower to them and you wouldn't believe the amount of dust that came out anyway...PC1
Intel D845WN (Year 2000 socket mpga478)
RAM:256MB SDRAM, what i think is a RivaTNT2 64, Creative ModemBlaster and a Realtek Ethernet
Looks like old WD's
The first time i've seen a samsung PSU
PC2, appears to be an IBM 2170
And Guess what, an AMD K6-2 450 my second one
OK so i tested them and PC 2 "IBM" POSTed fine and working so just needs an HDD and OS, but PC 1 wouldn't POST,
it didn't beep even with no RAM so the first thing i suspect is the CPU but the CPU does get warm as i think dead CPU's don't get warm??.
i could be wrong as its midnight right now and i have a headache and can't think straight and going to bed, feel free to leave suggestion for troubleshooting it
Could be a bad power supply also. Pull the motherboard and look at the back side for any burnt looking area's as well,.
Oh man, I remember those SiS 530 boards. That IGP was practically worthless for anything lol. Used the same chip with mine as well, and the system ended up dying in the early 2000s by the time I knew anything about computers. Had a Matsonic motherboard with integrated LAN and modem risers which was rather cool, but I liked the P3 500MHz/440BX/TNT2 m64 Gateway I got next. I basically had free/hand me down systems until I bought my first HP laptop in 2007.
damned i triped on the powercord of my pc and i have to redo all the post .... well long story short mode
i went in a dump and found a Compaq Armada 1700 in the snow (no way it will work, it was all covered)
well i managed to get it working pretty flawlessly (with a LiveCD of Damn Small Linux)
currently struggling to find a HDD caddy for it and a fitting hdd xD (plus the previous owner seems to have bend the caddy connector but nothing fubar)
Athlon XP 2200+ (barton if i recall) MSI KT6V400 mb 3D Prophet 9700 (Hercules)
I really need to clean that one ...
Titan Majesty V and 256mb DDR ram .. damned i had 2 512mb stick but one died
for sure hercules was knowing how to make awesome cards!
ATI MACH64 VT (pci)
Adaptec SCSI card
And the puppy that goes with
Winfast TDH A350 ViVo (gf 5900)
P4 1.7ghz/1mb/800mhz HT
on a P4P800VM (originaly it comes from a Dell Inspiron 9700)
NeoMagic 256v videochip,MB of a Dell laptop (PII) i couldnt throw away so i kept that part and the cpu
last but not the least a Audigy 2
duh i need to find where i did put my bits'n junk box i still have a Cyrix MII some other proc and parts
Took it apart last night and gave it a thorough cleaning and re installed everything correctly and it lives!!! [ although it made me stay up till 4am x_x]
I also found out that the reset button was stuck on the "on" position probably causing it not to POST, either this was the problem or last time i didn't install the GPU correctly, anyway both of them are fully functional now
i guess i'm going to need new cases for both too .
