wow ya don't see brand new slot A chips for sale very often. That is bad ass!
i think i will scavenge on EBAY instead of Ricardo.ch ... tho international tend to screw me ...
I FINALLY FOUND IT
Going to check if it works after i find a UHF\RCA cable, aand i need to read the manual to be able to use it
How very awesome Doc!
Hello fellow codhead
Also I had a E6300 that did 107% OC, in my sig.
once had a P11 300 that was an awsome overclocker
Bought it new installed it into a new motherboard and then set the jumpers so it ran at
450Mhz used it at that speed for over 2 years then getto'ed extra cooling fans ( one each side of the standard fan) to make a total of 3 fans.
then i upped the speed to see how high i could get it
That damm thing run rock steady at 650Mhz for over a year
when it was time to upgrade i down clocked it to 550Mhz and gave the board /mem/cpu to a good friend.
He still has this set up running as his daughters pc (at 550Mhz)
That was my second serious over clock first was a 486 66Mhz DX2 (got that to 100Mhz)
Ah those were the days when you could get massive100%+ overclock on air
These days your lucky if you can get a 25% overclock with water
my 1st OC was a 486DX 33mhz (my 1st win98 build since my 386 was a win3.1 build )
i was clueless but i checked some hardware freaks BBS at the time (cant remember wich tho ) set some jumper and got it to 66mhz then got random shutdown and pretty much figured ou that the fanless heatsink werent enough, so i dismantled my old 386 build PSU and retrieved the 50mm fan that was in and used it to cool off the chip
hummmm i have a HP SSF DC7700 (or something like that) i salvaged from the way to the dump at my job... it has a 6300 inside nyark nayahaha ... oh wait ... crap SSF HP mobo ... nevermind xD

For everyone that doesn't know, Tiaan has an awesome nostalgic build listed in the Case Mod Gallery seen here:
Very sweet ole nostalgic build. Everyone should jump over to the gallery and give Tiaan a vote on his old school build.
cool cheers AND.....
Hercules 3D Prophet II GTS Pro 64mb (1chf end price ... eh??? ok ok i will pay 10chf total ... 9chf delivery for 1chf card GOLDEN!!!!)
now i need a Slot A ... huhuhu ...
Sweet, I remember when that card first came out. Also if you where closer I would give you a slot A huhuhu
i've found some good auction on Ebay but AS I ALLWAYS SAY INTERNATIONAL TEND TO SCREW ME!
i cant have a paypal account and if they accept a payement via Efinance with a IBAN its all good but... cause there is a butt (double T intended for funny moment ,... or not) only those with a insane price (way overrated) accept it and other : paypal only...
murphy i like you but could you let me go and stop screwing all i try to do....
I gotta a GA-7N400pro2 with an athlon 3200+ sittin gaterin dust GreiverBlade problem though PnP from New Zealand might be a just a tad on the exorbitant side LOL
my Athlon retro build running atm is on a MSI KT6V400 with a Athlon XP barton 2200+ with a Sapphire Radeon X800GT on win xp pro
im searching a Slot A not a Socket A but thanks for the thought
indeed new zealand > switzerland post rate could be overkill thats why i say "international delivery allways screws one side or the other" ahah i found some nice Slot A board on Ebay but the post rate double or triple the price maybe the one i found on UK would be the cheapest, still "paypal only" i might contact the seller and ask if a international bank transfer via IBAN is possible... in switzerland post account hav a IBAN and authorize worldwide transaction (in and out) and less taxes than bank direct transfer or paypal
Hot DAMN, that was my very first video card
my first video card was a uh ... integrated Cirrus Logic in a Commodor 386SX desktop
then i had another Cirrus in a 486DX and a wooping SIS3D Pro AGP in my K6-2 rig (1st one i assembled myself) wich was followed by a TNT-TNT2-Geforce256-GF2 MX440-GF4 Ti4200- and then i went on a Athlon A FX5600-FX5900 then a Athlon XP FX5950 ultra X1900GT (or something like that ... dont remember )
I know it's not really hardware, but I just found a bunch of floppy disks in a commode (what I was about to drop out because of a community cleanup). They probably spent the last 15 years there. Here are some of them
Alright guys I posted up a couple nostalgic combos in the f/s section.
I've got here an ASRock 865pe board...kind of nostalgic, and very rare. I included it installed with DDR400 and a 7800GS. Also a 6600GT, 6800GT, and a 933Mhz PIII. Am I in?!
Awesome hardware Junkie! Added ya to the original post man.
Thank you stinger! I believe I've got an old PIII Via board stored away, along with one of the 1.13Ghz PIII's. I think that was the highest clocked III if I'm not mistaken. I'll post pics when I dig them out.
I just got given an old tower, which has the following in it-
Asus A8v skt939 board
Amd Athlon 64 4000+
Arctic freezer 64 cooler
80GB WD caviar
And two dvd drives. Just needs a PSU, then I'll see what it can do
Will post pics as soon as I can.
I used to have a Athlon 64 with a 5200 agp, looking forward to pics
The board is AGP, just edited to add that. I am looking forward to testing it/overclocking it.
I love nostalgic hardware! I too am looking forward to your testing, tigger.
