I like how everything used to be multicoloured :p My old P4 rig had a fan with 4 different coloured LEDs in one fan, well it has 2 now because some of the LEDs died of the years but you get my point.

Lol, I loved the wide variety of colors and variation between the different motherboard manufacturers and gpu vendors back then. Red boards, silver, purple, black, green, gold. Now it's all mostly black motherboards and black pcbs for GPUs and everything else. If you're a Gigabyte kind of dude, you'll get blue motherboards.

Kinda boring now.

That's true, but people have gotten into cable management so now everything is black to hide parts easily. Cases also have side panel windows now to show off hardware so I guess it looks nice if it didn't look like a rainbow inside. I always hated computers with 9 million different colours though, that might be because of my OCD.

Yeah, some color consideration had to be taken into account when setting up a rig back then lol.

I think the red boards tended to go well with most anything, I've got a MSI K8T Master2-FAR build in progress; red board, a pair of oldskool Thermalright SI-9XV heatsinks + WinFast A400 Ultra looks pretty good.

T_M_S...

It's been so long ago I can't remember exactly what I did...but if I'm recalling correctly I just kept it simple and cut the metal grids out in the back and smoothed them out some...same with the front, but I didn't do any extra work because the fans hid the ugly stuff. The reason why I liked using the 92mm fans is because it was very straightforward. They fit perfectly. I probably stuffed these fans into a dozen or more cases back then. The CPU cooler was the cooler we discussed awhile back. It was the Thermaltake 13 I believe...with a ThermalTake duct and an acrylic 80 to 92mm adapter. Reminded me of my old Harley when I stuck it on there. I was pulling some pretty darn good temps with that setup on my 3200+, I discussed this extensively back in the AMDMB days...

These are the only pictures I could find. I did stick an old Soyo Platinum in there - For Nostalgia's Sake. Also...A shot of the internals that killed my fascination for the Chieftec/ChenMing cases...although, I stuck with the same fans - for awhile. Very tunable. I was about the first to have one...the now famous - Lian Li V1000. Actually miss that case.
I miss the old Amdmb days. It's cool to meet another from there on here. :toast: Thanks for the tip on the fans man.

behold... Sapphire X800GT oh wait its a RV420 not 480 thought its labeled GT damned i got fooled (well not that much at 1$ the card im pretty much happy ... xD)
http://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/962/ATI_Radeon_X800_GT_AGP.html the "real" one


a bunch of "old but not so" GTX 560Ti OEM (a cutdown 448core GF110 to 352cores but retain the 320bit memory bus and the 1280mb ram.) and a Oem Albatron GT 405 (that crap lasted 46minutes the day i buyed a HP desktop as a base for my actual rigs... xD)




same as the GT 405 ... a ATI 9200SE p.o.s card for retail branded pc who claim "WOW GRAPHIC ATI/NVIDIA INSIDE "insert random MB amount here""


addition.







EDO ram woohoo

normaly a SoDIMM SDR pc100 32mb from a Dell Latitude CP with a PII 233

the famous PII233... funny i like that kind of package ... xD

i was wondering WTF is this it doesnt look like a standard ram module

the answer came from the PCB its a sync cache module ... i dont remember from where it is, i remember a Dell Optiplex GX1 with the PIII 450 i posted above, but i dont recall PIII having a sideport cache ... maybe from another "old" one i dont remember :laugh:

I want to add that if anyone in the ConUS want to build a Nostalgia rig and needs parts, let me know as I have some I need to get rid of for the price of shipping. And it all works 100%. I am buying a new house and while packing up my old house I am going to lets some things go as I will never use it it as I have plenty of nostalgia stuff in my keep pile.

Nah I am keeping him. I have been wanting to do that build with those components for years man. LOL

In the new house he will have his own desk and special corner with the win 98 rig.

I'll toss my hat in that ring.
A few of my friends have been trying to get me to play on their private EQ server with them, but my PC crashes out to desktop at the login screen. Would much rather build an old-school rig than run a VM on this one. Shoot me a PM with the 98/2000 era hardware you have and I'll talk business with ya.:toast:

Damn Doc!! That sucks that AOpen board is junk. There are a lot of the caps leaking for sure.

Have you tried to fire that Duron up on anything? I have seen similar chips that have the edge broke and they worked just fine.
