You don't need to.I have a 2.66 Celeron D(skt478 btw),should get it running some time.
Well,because I was bored and had nothing to do I took a few pictures of my Chaintech retro rig.I'm extremely sorry for the quality of the pictures,but this is all my tablet can do.
Nice Max!!! Looking forward to pictures and adding ya to the original post.
God, I must be brain dead tonight! Just noticed after I posted that you already had pictures. Might try and take some with your cell phone though.
And.......Adding you to the original post man!!!
Well,my cellphone has a camera that was even worse (2 megapixels) than the tablet,and it uses IR to transfer pics,which I can't use as I don't have any system that uses IR.Weirdly,the tablet makes videos in the best quality possible.Sadly I lost the USB cable to it.
On the other side,here's the wallpaper I use on the Chaintech rig.
Fits just nice on the TV screen I use!
Edit:Just installed the PC in my bedroom.I need to find a power cord though.
opteron 250 shipped incoming next week ...
now i think i will charge my paypal again and take 2 80mm Arctic F8 .. dang on Ebay they are 6.60chf free shipping from UK and from Etailer in switzerland they are 10-12chf (a piece)... duurrrr taxes!#
if i sell some more stuffz i might be able to take either a PCI Matrox or ATI even found some 3Dfx Voodoo Rush/Banshee, hell i will never run on a integrated RageXL 8mb if i can have 64 or more mb on PCI, or a professional PCI-X 3D accelerator display card ...
or ... i can also find a 3Dfx Voodoo 1-2 and chain the RageXL on it ...
is it wrong to want that on a fileserver
Is it wrong to want to play nostalgic games on the hardware they were designed to run on?
ahahah Random Murderer i like you! (wait is it not the second time i write that?) in a nostal'bro way.
fun things: i noticed a TY-147 140mm Thermalright fan fit right into the 5.25 bay of the rack ... since it has a 120mmx140mm dimension and the best : no need to fix it, it's so tight that he hold in place perfectly
bonus pics the cover and a pics thru a hole of the cover ... i love my SIII
since the In Win was a bit overkill i think i put the CM GX lite 600w for the moment, also back to standard heatsink, the Kama is really too big even for a 4u rack waiting on the 2 250 and the 2nd copper server heatsink
Got my problems sorted with the Premio (I think) and will do an XP install with it tomorrow - Then it's off to the snail races for some 32M Super PI!
Changed the CPU on my Chaintech system.Back when I used the 1.7 Celeron I experienced a whole lot of freezes and system was running like a snail.Installed a Celeron D 2.66GHz and now I don't have any freezes,and Windows runs perfectly.
OK, got XP on it and the machine seems capable of using it as is.
Seemed to take forever to do the install but now it's done - Just a few more details to sort such as digging out a mouse that will work with it.
Oh man, that is so sexy! I remember when that came out! Ugh, those were the good old days when upgrading to AMD made an incredible difference!
also you mean the time where even a PGA940 with DDR1, due to the Hypertransport and integrated memory controller, was on par with the whole new LGA771 with DDR2 and woodcrest Xeon when using less than 6gb ram and unbuffered stick
in addition of the 250 i might be able to get 2 275 and 8x1gb ECC more but i have to wait on answers ... about shipping not UK this time .... Australia and Japan ...
i .. i .... i .... i ..... *faint*
WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY SO PRICEY!!!!! DUUUUUUUURRRRR (edit obvious reason is obvious (tm) oh well i will take a Radeon 9000 or a GF 5500 PCI if i can't have a Kyro/Millenium/rush/banshee/virge/64/tnt2.... )
oh welll ... mix graphic/soundcard ? strange never seen em
For that video/sound card in the picture,read this:
weirdest idea ever... i don't write it but i put some hints in form of pics
so you can use today hardware with older one
PLX chip ... i know you can bridge a pciE to a AGP so i came up with the idea that nearly every bus can be bridged ... tho it's quite expensive even on ebay ... specialy the PCI-X to X16
1.93$ atm ... got it ... oh well that might do it till i am back in business for a PLX PCI-X to X16, PCI XFX FX5200 128mb still better than a RageXL 8mb
Received the 2nd heatsink, 2 Arctic F8 ordered, waiting on the 2 Opteron and the ram, should arrive between tomorrow and friday
Got a mouse that works with the Premio today from work and the only real detail left is to either find my PCI slot USB add-on card or get another one. Although I could load the needed programs and transfer screenies as is, would probrably take all day to do it that way.
Otherwise it's ready to go.
Where can we buy these? Do they also make it to put agp on newer boards?
EBAY : expensive and i did not see PciE to AGP (no real purpose i assume since its easier to find a cheap PciE gpu than a AGP and even the cheapest would be on par with a high end AGP card or slightly above... unlike PciE on PCI/PCI-X)
update: received the ECC ram and the Xeon. while the ram doesn't fit for 128bit dual channel in 64bit single channel they pass fine but i get 3072mb at the post instead of 4096 i think one stick is defective i need to identify it
Xeon: Prestonia core 2400D/512/533/1.5V SL72D HT 1core 2threads

that's a relief those are 32bit crap pile of silicon from Intel : i don't need to find a board for them ahah still they make a good addition to my cpu collection.
and since it's my free day and i am bored let's do a recap:
CPU L to R PIII 450 and 600, Athlon 700 Athlon X2 4850e duo Prestonia Xeon, 775 P4 478 P4, 2x 478Celeron D mobile PII, Pentium MMX Cyrix MII-300GP, I486 mobile Pentium 150.
The Hercule Trio (no no not Hercule Poirot)sideview ... only vanity shot to show my limited edition of Appleseed n°: 725
damn i love that cooler ... it look like a V8 (but more silent.... ahah )
i guess i install WinXP on the server for the moment to test the hardware.
finaly cpu family shot
also showing that i did find back my Leadtek Winfast A350 128TDH
Spotted it in one of your pics and thought I'd ask:
Are you as bummed as I am that the Hellgate servers were taken down and there are no private servers?
ahahah Random Murderer, yes i am ... but it's the Manga you spotted the box of the game is one shelf under
update Ghetto retro : how to improve airflow... unused 3.5" bay ... 60mm double fan ... *lightbulb*

support of AC97 but no output hum ... whatever ... G330 USB audiocard ... *lightbulb* the third!
Awesome stuff Greiver!!!!!!!!!
There were 10 pages or so the last time I posted
