You got that right, the weird thing is with all that it is working just fine
looks like FIC mobo to me
lol i remember that baking tray HDD in da old days
I fired up that Super motherboard with the PIII last night and damn what a BIOS it has,
I mean if a BIOS from 1997 features such a GUI and mouse capabilities why are they doing this just nowadays
retro UEFI bios
Windows 3.1 FTW.
WOW, only $2100: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=121071119401
I'll take 4 of them with a side of RDRAM -
And that's a steal!!1
Jeez, what is that guy thinking?
The real funny thing is, when I clicked it, at the bottom where it shows other auctions the was a ad for one and the price was $24.00
I believe that the advanced BIOSes needed huge EEPROMs which were very expensive back in the day. Your average run of the mill EEPROM in the mid 2000s was 4-8 megabits, and the latest UEFI boards typically have 64 megabits to play with.
My bro's old 7600GT went snack, crackle, pop!
and 2 more pics of his old setup:
Alright fellow owners of old stuffs, I have a question. I have my old trusty Abit kt7a board and supporting compnants. I need some ideals of what to do with it. I already have one hell of a win xp rig so I don't really need another one. I don't have a win 2k disc or key anymore so thats out the window. I also have a good win 98se rig. It does have a 2400+ cpu (highest it can run) and 1.5 gb of pc133 memory. I am not ready to put the thing out to pasture but I need a good ideal to continue to give it life other then a file server.
Ask him a question like does it come with a 1998 Honda Civic?
I should make a private offer for it.
The main "old" rig i have got WinME on it and using it for all the old games\software i have [for those moments when you need nostalgia ] but that's a good question since now i have 3 or 4 more now and don't know what to do with them other than running winME
Thats it in a nut shell. I already have a win 98se and a win xp box.
It works...somewhat...haven't managed to get a full crossfire test going...damn inflexible motherboards...
Now...to try and find a way to remove those damn screws without damaging the core...
What a coincidence! I found an HD2600XT AGP at the flea market. It's missing the heatsink so I ordered one of those chinese Zalman-look-alike HSF on eBay. Hopefully it'll work. Pics tonight.
256MB PC100 SDRAM w/ECC. Thought the dual-PCB design was unusual. We're running these in some of our old servers.
Great card for...1024x768 screens.
That's pretty awesome!
Very awesome card JP!!!
Now that is a pretty cool looking ram stick man.
I added you to the original post as well man.
Wow, I've never seen ram with more than one PCB before. What's the reasoning behind the design?
Just to pack in more chips, I assume. It all physically fits, so why not?
Edit: More memory. Eight sticks of 30-pin EDO DRAM on two riser/multipliers. No idea what size they are though.
6200LE with busted caps. FZ caps, should have know it. :shadedshu
HD2600 XT. Someone harvested the HSF from it. Caps look fine so hopefully it still works.
