This board is actually being sold on eBay at the moment from a couple of places in the EU.

I also happened to stumble across this article (German translated) which tries to list all high performance motherboards for the Voodoo5.

Well as the board has been modded, I'm not sure if I could offer you full price, so say about £5?? :D:laugh:
What voltages are able to be changed with the modifications @Mr.Scott ?? :)
All of them. There are no limits via bios restriction any more. All of these will go 5v or better.
Vcore
Vdimm
VDD
VTT tracking

Great link. Thanks. :)

I pulled this AMD K6-2 from an old Compaq Presario (I think) last year. Works just fine - just a pity the mobo has no AGP. It came with a working S3 ViRGE PCI graphics card though, and I also have a Voodoo 2 on-hand, so maybe I could use them together for a sweet little late 90's odd-ware build.

Very nice! :toast:

If you /do/ end up pairing that Voodoo2 with AMD chip, remember to use non-official 3dfx Voodoo2 driver - the original ones won't work under AMD, due to build architecture. So, if you're not familiar with this particular issue, it can take a LOT of time to troubleshoot & track down the issue. Even mislead you into thinking that the card itself doesn't work, when in fact everything's OK :)

Thanks for the tip, really! I haven't done much research into Voodoo2 builds, so I'll file that one away in my memory bank for when the time comes to put something together. ;)

BTW, I managed to track down a board with a reasonable price tag that should be compatible with the Voodoo 5500! It's being sent from Germany, so there will be a while to wait before it shows up in Australia. It's a Gigabyte GA-8STXC, which was a board made for Fujitsu OEM machines and effectively the same as a GA-8ST. Fingers crossed it will be fine. I cross referenced compatibility with the Voodoo card on the link I posted earlier in the thread.

I have a 2.53GHz / 533FSB Northwoord Pentium 4 in the drawer which will sink into this board just fine too. :)

No prob :)

Yes, I figured you wouldn't know about 3dfx/AMD issue, most people don't... Including myself, up until I've put together AMD-powered Voodoo2 SLI rig (RetroMaster 2500, from the profile) Of course, nowdays something like that would be out of the question, as AMD would most likely press charges against 3dfx, Voodoo series for discrimination or something, it's funny how world has changed ... for the worse, mostly *sigh*

And good luck with Voodoo5 rig, make sure to post pics as soon as you get it up & running :toast:

Yea, that is the king of nostalgic hardware for sure!!!!!

Haven't seen Artex around since though. :(
Still here! Just... life...you know. Here's a few to wet your whistle..

NVIDIA NV1 - Diamond Edge 3D 2120XL Ver. 1.00 (STG2000X) 1MB PCI (Boxed) (1995)










To go with this..





Primax Soundstorm Wave Sound M16-C GF1 1MB ISA (Boxed) (1992)






3DFX Voodoo5 5500 AGP Special Edition Mouse Pad with Apology Letter (2000)




3D Blaster VLB



















3DFX Exit Packet :depressed: :depressed: :depressed: :depressed: :depressed:



3DFX Interactive MousePad (Old Logo)



3DFX Voodoo3 - 3DFX V3000-16 Rev. 1.0 16MB AGP (Boxed) (1999)




3DFX Voodoo Official Magazine Spring 1999



Abit NF7-S Version 2.0 NVIDIA Nforce2 Socket A ATX Motherboard (NOB) (2003)






Eagle JoinData Systems G486SLV Socket 3 with 256KB Cache (NOS) (1994)



EPoX EP-7KXA Via KX133 Slot A Motherboard (NIB) (2000)





Roland SCC-1A (Boxed) (1992)





Zalman CNPS 7000B-Cu LED CPU Cooler (NOS)



3DFX Voodoo2 - Quantum Obsidian2 90-2440 10MB PCI



3DFX Stationary




3DFX 'Take a Ride' Keychain




3DFX Matchbox




3DFX Voodoo5 6000 Case Badge



2 x 3DFX Voodoo2 - Diamond Monster 3D II 12MB PCI (Boxed) (1998) Moar VOODOO 2s!




Diamond Monster Sound MX400 PCI (NOS) (2000) Working on rounding out my collection of NOS Diamond Monster Sound cards.



Turtle Beach Maui ISA (New, OEM) (1994)



Roland MPU-401 (Boxed) (1986)Finally, a boxed version!




Roland MA-8 Studio Monitor Speakers (Boxed) (1996)I like Roland (duh) and these are in great shape!




NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GT - XFX nVidia GeForce 7950GT 512MB AGP (G71) (Boxed) (2006) Definitely overpaid for this but A) It's hard to find the AGP version vs PCIe, and B) it's complete in box. Fastest AGP card folks...





Media Vision Pro Audiospectrum 16 (650-0044-06) ISA (NOS) (1992) I keep finding these for cheap prices.. so why not..



NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GT - Gainward BLISS 7800GS+ Silent 512MB AGP (G71) (Boxed) #2 (2006) Another boxed version of one of my favorite AGP card - NOT cheap back in the day!



Creative CT2760 (Sound Blaster AWE32) ISA (Box Only) (1994) Snagged this box for dirt cheap - gonna add the card for my second boxed version of the 2760.



3DFX Voodoo2 - Metabyte Wicked3D WickedVision H3D Eyewear System (1998)



2 x ASUS ROG MATRIX Platinum HD 5870 2GB P-2DIS-2GD5 PCI-E (Cypress XT) (Boxed) (2010) I had these cards back in the day for Crossfire before I moved to a single card solution. These are the higher-clocked Platinum versions that are completely bad-ass, especially with the glowing MATRIX logos. SOLID!





2 x 3DFX Sticker Aluminium - Metallic Logo Case Badge - 1 inch x 1 inch



AMD Athlon XP 3200+ (AXDA3200DKV4D) Socket A (Barton) (AQYFA) (2003) This one is rather rare and took me a few years to track down. I will be throwing this in my EPoX 8k3A+ for use with my Voodoo5 6000 system!

Nah, that's nothing... You should go back & take a look at his earlier posts, from couple of years ago! :eek: -LINK

Even now, 3 years later, I'm STILL drooling! o_O
