I didn't know that Dell used standard ATX motherboards. That's interesting.
sorry its a missunderstanding i meant : the CPU come from a Dell Inspiron 9700 (the HUGE "gamer" laptop from Dell, i call it like that because ... spec where awesome when it went out and also huge ... did you saw that thing ? i mean IT was REALLY HUGE!!)

and the P4P800VM was from a desktop SSF from Maxdata i found in the same dump where i found the Armada 1700 xD, i remember i also saw a AIO Acer Veriton (PIII and such) i guess i will fetch it tomorow

i like giving a new home to little computing boys who where left to certain death by their previous owner ... am i wrong?

BONUS 2

Ye ole soundcard (i dont remember model i need to recheck) ISA BUS!


HDD IBM 4.2gb


ohhh look a Raspberry p... eerrrhmmm a Acer N50 Premium board with a Xscale 520mhz 64mb ram


that remind me i have a HP Jornada 540 somewhere ... Hitachi sh3 proc inside (damned nobody tought of the sh4 to do a Pocket pc??? ok ok i know exclusivity to the Dreamcast xD oh i still have one of those ... aside with a Saturne Serie 1 europe)

Part3

not too dusty

seems to be a GF5200

Creatix fax modem ??? eh ... i didnt have one ... nice!

I HATE WHEN IT HAPPEN! well at last no pin broken or missing

P4 2.6ghz/512/533 i guess my P4 2.8/1m/800 HT will not be supported:banghead: (dang and i hoped for a Williamette S423 for my collection....

OH YES! 512mb total xD

VICTORY:rockout:

booting full ... hummm .... 1st comp i find in that dump with a fully functional stats from base

YEP FX5200


i found the caddy of the Armada1700 but unforunately the previous user did break all the connector pin ... sooo sad:cry: well live CD and usb key all the way so :ohwell:


ahahah i didnt think i would find one :D

the Acer Veriton i mentioned ... will it work? ahah


i found info about the Inspiron 9700 proc
Pentium 4 HT 2.8E SL79K2.80 GHz 1024 KB 800 MT/s 14× 1.25/1.525 V
1.25/1.4 V 89 W Socket 478 February 1, 2004 RK80546PG0721M
BX80546PG2800E
Dell in fact used a Desktop proc in it... :twitch:

and a lil non oldies bonus they are lookalike its meant to be so, but will anyone recognise the manga used as reference (if you dont like i can remove it) cookie to the 1st one to say Manga serie name and name of the character

a lil up

hand in bits'n grease in the Microstar tower... i guess i swap the FX5200 for my 9700 and the FSP 250w for a 350w psu i have aside, if i recall correctly P4 where performing better than Athlon XP (well my MSI KT6V would be better than the uATX mobo it has but i want to give it a shot for Retrogaming and non 7 compatible games i have:rolleyes:)

nostalgeek is obviously nostalgic

Beer sounds good :cool:

Ah, I suspected as much it was Tera. I have to try that game sometime. Ah, so instead you gave your character the anime's/manga's name. xD

That Acer looks really good! Surely if you want to get that up and running like new you could probably try to fit in some old (my guess 15") panel in there.

What are the specs on that?

Damn, that Acer Veriton must have been something else in its time.
well i like it more in little bits on my torture table ...

lets resume : PIII 600mhz integrated 3D rage Pro LT 128mb ram (2 slot avaiable so could be upgraded) hummm a 1999-2000 iMac? with more power and less space wasted than the 1998 CRT imac 1st model?

damn i love non conventional formfactor 90degree Secc1 1 pci and a Riser with 2 slot on it ... unusual plug layout ... non 24pin ATX Slim cdrom powered by the Pata cable, no I/O onboard except VGA and LAN .... all the rest is on separate wired extension.

weird nice and quite amusing .... a point that Veriton and i, share .... in nomine veritas

pps: the P4 HT of the Inspiron 9700 is a Prescott and the one in the Microstar tower (funny fact its MSI ... they own the brand Medion in Switzerland) is a Northwood (not the HT one) maybe i can upgrade the bios... who kows:rolleyes:

Dug this out on the "dark and obsolete" section of parts where I work. :laugh: This shiny new Voodoo 2 most likely never used! It's still really shiny and nearly dust free. :eek:

My guess is that it was taken out from some new Gateway computer back then and stored in a anti-static bag inside a small box.

Inside the box was still the external male-female VGA cable. :)

Ahh... I wish I could've gotten one of these back in 1998 when I got my Pentium 166 MMX, which was only equipped with an onboard S3 Trio with 1MB of RAM (later added another MB to be able to do 1024x768 16bit :D)

Lucky! Well how else would a 11 year old kid be able to buy one of the most expensive GPUs back then? lol xD

I even thought about buying a couple of those and a 233MHz MMX back in about 2003 when I had a few more spare change to revive the old 166 but something changed my mind lol.

Oh, glad you got that Veriton working! 256MB is not bad! 512MB would be golden but, still good :D

Nice, I wish I had two of these back in the day.
I would've been happy with just one lol xD

Wat? Is it me or that PSU can be overvolted?

Never seen one of those. Nice :D

:toast:
Over- or under-volted. most people who had them(and knew what they were doing) put a slight over-volt on them to account for droop or would set the rails to their exact values when the system was under load. Was a great feature, I'm surprised it didn't catch on.

I remember when them power supplies came out. They seemed to always be too expensive for me to afford LOL.

And wanted to share this score with everyone. Should have it by next Monday or Tuesday.







I believe it is the SX1040 II. I know it isn't the SX1040 BII which I would have preferred, but this one will work.
The guy told me he purchased it right when they first came out, used it for a short time, and it has been in the factory box every since! The damn thing looks like it is brand new, at least from the pictures.
