Got the cooler for the HD2600XT
Neat. A 521MB DDR3 2600XT.
It's a shame the x2600x2 won't let the system boot when installed in a 4CoreDual-SATA2, otherwise my project would have been viable.
It would have been awesome...oh well...
sneak preview of Red & Blue: a 478 scraps build
What would be a good circa-2005 sound card?
No idea what would be good for that timeframe.
Lol, what I'm interested in is that Gigabyte i-RAM.
Maybe a sound blaster live 5.1? I think that is about the right time frame.
Very awesome looking nostalgic build bro!!! What is that Gigabyte card with the ram in it?
It's an i-RAM.
I think I'm going to forgo the sound card; I'll try to get a set of speakers with optical inputs instead.
Maybe I should look for a sound card after all. Can't find a set of PC speakers with optical input.
Wish I hadn't sold my Turtle Beach Montego. Maybe I could get an X-Fi Xtreme Gamer or something.
Digged out my old 478 heatsink:
Bought an IC7 MAX I/O plate, apparently it should fit the IC7-G fine. Log will be posted soon
Unfortunately you are too far otherwise I would have send you a vintage case to fit that rig
That i-RAM looks cool... why did they abandon that idea anyway?
Thanks but I'll use the case that I had initially bought for my Phenom build.
Maybe they didn't sell many? I recall an i-RAM 2 being developed for DDR2 RAM but it never saw the light of the day.
I'd want to come across an i-RAM box though (same thing but in a 5.25 enclosure).
I have some new CPUs at home
SOME PENTIUM 2 350MHZ
PENTIUM 3 TUALTIN 1 GHZ
PENTIUM 3 800
AMD64 939 3200
AMD64 939 3700
AMD64 939 3000
SLOT TO SOCKET 370 WITH 1.2GHZ TUALTIN PENTIUM 3
You should throw up some pictures man.
Cost as in the iRAM cost a but load as did the DDR400 ram to put in it I also think this is where the idea for the PCIe SSD started from
its Volatile meaning it requires a battery to keep everything.
Yes fro this time tommrow i post all of the pictures of all of my old great hardware i have
with my new sony xperia U - i know its not the best but its my optimal sulotion for me.
i guess you dont understand the point: the purpose is to be a Ramdisk so, for loading a LiveCD system (in exemple) so basically it IS a kind of PCI "Volatile SSD" and since it was not comfortable, they developed SSD with non volatile and more capacity.
btw SSD Solid State Drive : a Ramdisk composed of ram stick is a SSD, to the core definition you can even call a uSD card or any memory card usb key a SSD... that name is kinda too much generic,
ok ok i know its not what people know ... but do they know right? maybe yes maybe no *Evil laugh* muhahahahahahahhahahahaaaaa
so he has a point in it imo
some of my pictures the cam is sony xpreia U 5mp
and some more pictures
Awesome ole hardware man!!!
Added ya to the original post.
Now its the CPU's and RAM pictures
if you use straight DRAM without any battery as an SSD you lose your data, plus that battery can die without warning. They were the earliest SSDs before nand flash memory came into use.
Alphacool Powersupply watercooling block
now that is odd! Can't imagine it would have been very effective really.
Got some new stuff coming soon, but for now...
Got a Kingwin KT424-BK-WM for the Xeon rig. Decided the Xeons need to be shown off a bit more and what better way to do that than with an inverted-ATX case?
The conversion didn't take much work, pretty much just needed to cut the backplate for the new tray position and then move the support rails over to the other side and pop rivet into place. I may add a couple 80mm fans side-by-side for a blowhole up top later, not sure yet.
Plopped my Freeway FW6400 and Voodoo5 5500 in there to see what it would look like with a board in there. I may actually use the board in this case at some point, but probably not until I find a TJ06 or Coolermaster ATC-710 for the XG-DLS.
