These parts are not even 10 years old. I'd say not very nostalgic, but you could build a fine SLI- youngtimer. SSD's are, even for a youngtimer, not old enough. How about 2 WD740 Raptors at raid 0 instead? I'm using a Raptor striping raid as system disc at the Crossfire- youngtimer. In my opinion they work really well.

Going to buy an Asus P5LD2 + Pentium D 925 (3GHz Dualcore) at 20 euros, damn now I need an ATX case (all the spare cases I have are mATX), some DDR2 memory and a spare PCIe videocard. That's going to replace my Powermac as HTPC ;)

I'll put pictures as I get them. :)


edit: That mobo supports C2D CPUs so I think that some E4400/E6400 class CPU is the cheap upgrade I'll buying very soon to that mobo ;)

edit: The seller said that I'm going to get a free Radeon X1650Pro with the mobo + CPU, so buying a video card isn't necessary any more ^^

tsk tsk you can be nostalgic about a 2012 thing and in computer 6 month make it a dinosaurus so no need to be a 2004 piece to be nostalgic about :D for me the range is : 1989 (my 1st Comodor AT clone with a i286) to 2008 (Radeon X800GT and X1950GT GeForce 9800GTX+) oh well let say 2009 for the Radeon 4870 :D :roll:

Ohh, Radeon 9700 Pro, that's where my nick comes from, I've used this nick also on Finnish hardware forum called MuroBBS almost 10 years. I had a Club3D 9700 Pro then. From Hercules I had a 9500 Pro and that was a real OC beast, took 400/700 clocks with stock cooling, ran ofc hot as hell but worked without problems :D


The 9500 Pro OC ran Flatout2 maxed out at 1600x1200 without problems :)



edit: I'm getting a Sapphire HD3870 Ultimate with ~20 euros, suits perfectly with the upcoming HTPC! :toast:

In my opinion the Radeon 9700Pro is amongst the 10 or maybe 15 cards that made computer- graphics history. When it came out, it blew everything away.
My Radeon 9700Pro story goes like this: A hot summers day in 2004. I was sitting at my PC, playing I don't know, maybe Counter Strike, as a Thunderstorm broke loose. Really heavy rain and storm. I was running through the whole house, looking if each & every window is shut. Finished my round I came back to my room, F...! I forgot my window. So it was a hot summers day under the roof, the overclocked PC was open and it rained through the open window in the roof right in the running computer. The Radeon was dead.
I bought a Radeon 9800Pro, sure, it had a little more power, but the 9700Pro had something else away from sheer power. In my eyes, theres was always something like a glow around it. For me the 9700Pro is still a graphics- adapter worth remembering.
I still run (sometimes) a Hercules 9700Pro in the dual socket A- System, in posting #1655 is a picture. I made another pic of the card with the Zalman VF700-heatsink. Though the 9700Pro doesn't like to be alone, she brings a, Zalman cooled too, 9800Pro as backup ;).

A few hours ago I found a parcel on my doorstep.

Matrox Qvision 2000+, 1200 01.jpg


Matrox Qvision 2000+, 1200 02.jpg


Not really a killer, but I like the look of the old Matrox- cards. There are many different which look nearly equal. So what else? They are, normally, not very expensive.
They look good, most of them got a good 2D-quality, there are many, they are cheap, depending on the board, the AGP- types give a good frontend for any kind of 3D-accelerator like Voodoos or the Matrox M3D. I've got many old ATI's, but if I have the choice I'd always prefer the Matrox (as a 2D- card). I think, I'll start collecting these cards.

From Hercules I had a 9500 Pro and that was a real OC beast, took 400/700 clocks with stock cooling, ran ofc hot as hell but worked without problems :D
weeeeellll ... my Hercule 3D Prophet 9700 128m hold a special place... bundled with NoLFe she hold pretty much the top spot in most of my AGP build till i got a X800GT 256mb and then a X1950GT 512mb
that XP rig played also Eve Online all to the max with a simple and weaky X1650Pro 512mb: yup i never got the money to take a X1950GT before 2013 ahahah :roll: tho i had a FX 5900 Ultra

and she still hold a special place on my shelf (and the Hercule brand hold a real special place too... too bad they didn't got further than they did):
IMG_20140123_124430.jpg

now for the sad part ... or fun part : i am thinking of going Skt604 instead of 940 ... yup Xeon instead of Opteron ... i need to check the 270 versus Xeon 2400dp
it is mainly because i found a overly cheap Super Micro dual 604 board ... ánd i have already 2 Xeon 2400dp/512/533/1.5V but i have to take in consideration that the Riowork is a bit more costier but it come with 2 HSF and 2 Opty 270

so actually i have the Opty 246 (Sledgehammer) that i keep because it is a SH core, 2x Opty 250 (troy) on the malfunctional K8D (i tried to straighten the pin in the ram slot, well didn't worked ... and as i have no other board to test i can't see if its not the DDR ECC stick who fails)

basically:

Xeon 2400dp (Prestonia) : single core 32bit HyperThreading
Pros: cheap mobo, Intel proc ... i see it as a Pro since on 4 of my 5 working PC's are AMD setup xD
cons: will need new HSF, no PCI-X only PCI (not so much a cons since i have all the needed card in PCI)

Opteron 270 (italy) : dual core 64bit
Pro: come with a Riowork Rhapsody HDAMA board, PCI-X in case i find some good deal on cards SSE3, higher cache
Cons: 2time the price of the board (but again with 2 cpu include) lower frequencies
http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare_CPUs/AMD_OSP270FAA6CB,Intel_RK80532KE056512/

on a second look
http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/43..._vs_Intel_Xeon_2.4_GHz_(RK80532KE056512).html
the Opteron will pack more punch than the Xeon setup, but i don't know if the board is the SATA version (the Super Micro has 2 port, and the Riowork has normally 4 but on the pics of the seller it seems to have none)

Mmmmhh, a dual Opteron- system that would be nice. A few weeks ago I bought a cheap 148 at the bay for the Crossfire- System but i killed it while I decapitated it. Maybe I'll try another one sometime. At the moment the 3700+ San Diego runs at 3,1GHz+ and that is ok I think. I have to cut the heatspreader off from every CPU I use at the skt 939 because of this >

I tried 3 different watercoolers, always the same problem.
But a dual Opteron- system, that would be a good idea! But first I've planned a mod at the Thermaltake "Thai-Chi"- Case which I want to use for the Crossfire- sys.. I had the strange idea the Thai-Chi needs a new front. That will be much work, cause I'd like to solder it with sheet-metal. I'm not really bad at soldering, but I'm afraid I burn down the house ... ;).

well as you can see in my syspecs i have a dual 250 setup but the ram slot pin took a crap and even straightening them didn't do the trick, ie: the ram show only half of her capacity when tested one by one and the system doesn't even pass the POST
if i am quick enough to press F2 it goes into BIOS and show DDR ECC errors ... but the system worked just fine with the Opteron 246 and the same 4x 1024mb (2 different kits but both 266mhz from Kingston) the CPU are detected by the BIOS no problem on this ... i think i might retest the Setup with the 246 alone but i pretty much suspect the board to be fubar... 1 wee and 1 day to wait till i can order one of the board i mentioned above ... plenty time to solve my dilemma :D

edit : the Riowork mobo and the 2 270 would come from Germany :D

the Xeon one from england, the shipping cost is doubled for Germany and take 1 day more than England ... weird xD

Wow Backfire, you have a Tt Thai-Chi case? Man, always wanted one of them however they were waaaaaaaaaay out of my price range in the day. I have always kept an eye out for a good deal on one though LOL

Man, this thread is becoming such an epic thread with all the amazing nostalgic hardware showing up!!!!!!

I paid 30€ for it, but I had to repair a lot. First it was 60€ but I gave the seller a negative rating because it was so damaged. So he gave me 30€ back and I took the neg. rating back. And hey, I'm a mechanic, I'm good at repairing things. Inside was an Intel- motherboard, a P4C800-E. I tested it.

And then sold it for a bit more than 30 Euros.
The integrated watercooling of the Thai-Chi is crap. I still got some parts somewhere in a box.
A few weeks ago, the watercooled slave-card of the Crossfire- sys. was dead at arrival (lucky me, it was the slave and not the master), so I built an aircooled Crossfire- sys in the Thai-Chi to test the board.
So this is the Thai-Chi from the inside with a Crossfire with Asus Radeon X1950Pro:

Test DFI Crossfire - Thai-Chi - 3700er - 2x x1950pro 1000h.jpg


As you can see, plenty of room.

This is my spare GPU, really nice display adapter but it chugs power. I was able to run it on only a 430watt corsair with a phenom 2 so it isn't bad at all.


I think I may have as many as 4 skt 939 processors but I'd really have to dig to find em lol.

Also have to convince my friend to give me back my old Opty 144 single core 939 that does 2.8 :)

yup. I tried to build a peltier- booster. The peltier is cooling the water that is flowing through the watercooler. The warmth of the peltier is terminated by the aircooler. The pelt has got 120W effictive pumping power, but its not effective enough. It would be effective with a stronger peltier, but its an economic desaster. That would be about 400W just for the peltier. Nice gag, not more.

Did you run an insulated chilled reservoir setup? I don't know much about Peltier/Thermoelectric Coolers.
