    and not only by a little ! :rockout:

    you will have work to put all in 1 post once on a computer :D otherwise i would think you use the phone excuse for hunting for "thanks" ;) :roll: (joke)

    damned ... paypal account top up failed and i don't know where the money did go ... aaaaaaaargh! i have to wait some more till i can buy the Riowork SSI board ... (3 weeks or until paypal or my bank figure out where the money is ...)

    humpf i might get rid of my W0W account for a friend (he would give me symbolically a certain amount for the time invested) 1 yrs almost since last time i played it ... i know what blizz think about "giving" account but eh ... better of use to someone then frozen with 4 90 and 1 87... plus it could fund some of my nostalgic needs ... dunno ... maybe someday i will have a sudden urge to re activate it ... or not... dilemma

    nice but you should put some text about the hardware, like spec or year or is it still working or not or where do you find it
    duh, cleaning it a little then take a shoot

    The dust adds to the age of the hardware, the more dust it gathers the older it is. If it has Gold then you polish it, duh!

    One of the better known upgrade CPU's. It is based on the AMD DX5-133. Basically just a high speed 486 with extra cache. It is a capable performer and happens to be rather overclockable (160MHz is usually attainable)

    Sockets 1 - 2 - 3
    Pins 168
    Speeds 133
    Fan? Integrated
    Core AMD DX5

    I don't know what's happening with my IC7-G. I set up a RAID on the intel controller but on the XP setup it shows the i-RAMs as separate drives. After copying all the files and restarting it won't enter the setup until it undo the RAID (return disks to non-RAID, not disabling RAID on the bios). I thought, "ok, well then, I'll re-arm the RAID with the Intel Accelerator suite once Windows loads". I've done it before, making a RAID from a full disk (the IAS will automatically spread the clusters between the two drives) but it can't do it with the system volume :banghead:

    I've reflashed the bios but the matter continues. Yes, I loaded the RAID drivers with F6. If I don't the drives don't even show up.

    I'll test on my nforce3 board.

    Thanks, I wish I had a PC junkyard.

    wow you guy's were talking about TYAN a while ago and i found this today xD
    now on the nostalgia topic my brother has a laptop that i think it qualifies [ i even done a semi-ghetto fix for its hinges too], will edit post with pics later when i can

    Well here it is Inspiron 2650, very solid lappy this one, got years of abuse and still works great except battery is dead
    hinge cover broke so put nuts to tighten screws and hot glued it to keep everything in place, if i could i'd upgrade the CPU, RAM and HDD but they're hard to find. renamed pics to be self explanatory xD
    CPU: Pentium 4m 2GHz | RAM: 2x 256MB samsungs
    GPU: Geforce 2 Go 200 32MB | HDD: 30GB Hitachi pata

    I choose the Abit to replace my dying ASUS A7N8X, stuck with ABit till the stopped making motherboards. Always loved the orange color. Un fortunately, my 9800 non pro died, so i bought the 5950 ultra on ebay for 40 bucks several years ago, my friend killed my 2700+ (booted with out a heatsink lol) so he gave me his XP 2500-M and I no longer have the case I used (although thats the same PSU I have been using with it for 11 years). Wish I could find an Antec Plus 1080 AMG Silver.

    Better use zip-ties for better airflow. All these wires screw it up.
