That is a very good question JunkBear. Hmm, might have to do some research on that.

reporting what i have posted in your pc atm ... the server has issue i sorted what was wrong : bent pin in the ram slots ... DUH

so : not working status atm until i find a way around, still i received the Optys
IMG_20140124_123134.jpg IMG_20140124_212812.jpg IMG_20140125_011443.jpg

as said again in your pc atm i will go for that a Rioworks Rhapsody HDAMA

dirt cheap, stock in germany quick delivery and come with


2 x Opteron 270 Dualcore CPU 2 GHz 2 x 1 MB Cache

i think repairing the pin on the K8D would be too much of a hassle and also even if i will have no use for the Opterons 250 since that board is bundled with 2 270 they will accompany the 246 on the "hall of fame" on my shelf.

In the background you can see an old Clariion RAID array, I no longer have it. I will post some classic hardware I still have later.

Well what a lovely thread for old hardware. I have been pointed here by a cupple of peeps from my 'Retro Pentium 4' thread in the projects section and you can find that here.

Over the coming weeks I will be uploading some pictures of various bits of old tech I have kicking around but I thought for now I would kick off my introduction with a brief look at my Intel 486DX2!

This system belonged to a gent in his 90's who sadly passed away at the end of last year and I picked up the system from his family. I'm sorry to say the original screen was thrown in a skip about a week before i came to get the system but I did get the original keyboard. The system never came with a mouse but of course one can be added via the serial port.

Basic spec's on the system are:

  • Intel 486DX2 clocked @ 66Mhz
  • 16MB of EDO memory
  • 800mb-1GB? Western Digital hard drive
  • 1MB Trident video card
  • 2x CD-ROM drive with audio support
The system is and was dust/grime free and almost still looks like new!

The only issue I have with the system is the fact that the heatsink is broken. This is the reason i have not been using it or have powered it up for a while. I am looking for a replacement and have found a few in the U.S but have not got around to buying one. I have had the system up and running and it is running D.O.S 6 with Windows 3.11 for Workgroups.

I am looking to sell the system quite soon but it's hard to value as the prices for complete systems and parts varies so much. I know if I was going to sell her it would be for a good amount as this is as CLEAN really as it gets. It also has a shed load of orignal software installed and to be honest it does not look like it has ever been reinstalled in it's life. It even has year 2000 correcting software installed, clearly the chap who owned it was taken in by the Y2K bug scare.

I don't have a fan but I do have a 486 board somewhere with a Pentium Overdrive cpu in it (has it's own fan)... you're welcome to it if interested*

*I ran it many moons ago and was still running well when I pulled it :)

Well what a lovely thread for old hardware. I have been pointed here by a cupple of peeps from my 'Retro Pentium 4' thread in the projects section and you can find that here.

Over the coming weeks I will be uploading some pictures of various bits of old tech I have kicking around but I thought for now I would kick off my introduction with a brief look at my Intel 486DX2!

This system belonged to a gent in his 90's who sadly passed away at the end of last year and I picked up the system from his family. I'm sorry to say the original screen was thrown in a skip about a week before i came to get the system but I did get the original keyboard. The system never came with a mouse but of course one can be added via the serial port.

Basic spec's on the system are:

  • Intel 486DX2 clocked @ 66Mhz
  • 16MB of EDO memory
  • 800mb-1GB? Western Digital hard drive
  • 1MB Trident video card
  • 2x CD-ROM drive with audio support
The system is and was dust/grime free and almost still looks like new!

The only issue I have with the system is the fact that the heatsink is broken. This is the reason i have not been using it or have powered it up for a while. I am looking for a replacement and have found a few in the U.S but have not got around to buying one. I have had the system up and running and it is running D.O.S 6 with Windows 3.11 for Workgroups.

I am looking to sell the system quite soon but it's hard to value as the prices for complete systems and parts varies so much. I know if I was going to sell her it would be for a good amount as this is as CLEAN really as it gets. It also has a shed load of orignal software installed and to be honest it does not look like it has ever been reinstalled in it's life. It even has year 2000 correcting software installed, clearly the chap who owned it was taken in by the Y2K bug scare.
More pictures due to hitting the limit.

That is one seriously awesome ole 486 Aven!!!!!!!!!!!

I have, naturally, added you to the original post man!!!! :respect: :respect: :respect:

okay F8 received FX5200 too ... just need to wait on money to order the mobo i spotted on Ebay, for the FX the seller said "works fine but a little bit dusty" a "little bit dusty" was a understatement :D never seen so much gunk in a so little heatsink :clap:

also as a bonus the F8 are of the new gen ... longer cable, better design, the old one in switzerland retailer are referenced at 10chf and the new between 11 and 12chf a piece ... i paid 12chf for both and shipped from England :D happy day!
