@ Backfire: The DFI NF2 Infinity I had wasn't that great, didn't want to go past 220 or so on the bus no matter what I tried - Different chips, cooling, RAM, BIOS files.... You name it I tried it and the board simply woudn't deliver. I actually had a A7N8X Deluxe 2.0 that ran much better (240FSB). Both of my benching NF7's blow that away and my benching AN7 does too.

BTW nice Soyo board, I have one like that (KT 266 Dragon Plus! version) with what appears to be the factory mod done to it via leaving out R219 from the board. Can't find R219 anywhere on this one and it was bought right before these disappeared from vendors. The basic mod for these was snipping out R219 for better performance and to correct a problem with low voltage for T-Bred CPUs, snipping out the resistor solved the problem. My board shows the correct 1.65v's with a T-Bred as it should and since I can't find this resistor on it, it must be one of those.

Soyo did a last batch run with this "Mod" making those an oddity of sorts.

Played with my PPro again the other day. A couple people and I had a "Play Quake on age appropriate hardware" night and this was already a complete tower. Software quake runs like shit but I did manage to get GLQuake running which was able to run 1024x768 no issues at all. It's well worth the effort to get a Voodoo card for quake if you want to make an age appropriate issue, it looks so much better.

At the moment it's a 200 MHz Pentium Pro, 96 megs ram, S3 Virge 2D card, Voodoo 2 3D card, Sound Blaster 32 sound card, 60 gig hard drive running Windows 2000.

I would hate to imagine what this would've cost in 1996ish sans the 60 gig drive and Voodoo 2.


And my setup from the other night. The tower's hardware really is the only age appropriate stuff but we all used LCDs instead of CRTs but I'm the only one that used a modern mouse after playing with USB cards. The Siig USB card from an old Mac I had works fine but the VIA based USB2 cards hardlock the system after a few minutes. I will say that a CM Recon is a LOT better than airport terminal trackpoint-type device.

It would work fine for that but the particular one is aimed at airport terminals. As such it has a magstripe reader and some sort of OCR in the same slot as well as PS/2 connectors and SITA serial connector.

The main reason I use it is the Cherry MX Black switches. The Desko has the built in mouse and is quieter making it easier for testing stuff than a Model M (and I can't afford a M13).

It's a V1.3. Normally I'm running a CPU that fits the board, i.e. a Thunderbird 1200, 1333 or 1400.
As I did some graphics-adaptor testing last year, I needed a board with a 3.3V AGP-Slot and I needed some MHz to be sure the graphics-adaptors run under full load. I tested the Abit KT7A, the Asus A7V133 and the Epox 8KTA3Pro. All 3 boards ran, more or less, fine with a XP-M 2500+ Barton @ 17x 133MHz = 2267MHz.

Cool backfire. I also have a rev 1.3. I was running it with a 2100+ I now run it with a 2400+.

Awesome Compgeke!!! Of course I added you to the original post man!!!!! :respect: :respect: :respect:

Wow, playing Quake on "age appropriate" hardware would be a frigging blast!!! Hmm, I have Quake and Quake II just waiting to be played. :D
Ya know, Quake II ran great as a multiplayer over the internet. Wonder if it still does? LOL



Where? Compgeke posted PC with Voodoo 2:


Backfire posted PC with Voodoo 5 5500:
Hmm, I know I posted a Voodoo 5500 on page 55.

Thinking pretty serious about firing that puppy up...... Just acquired an ole Gateway with a PII 400 Slot 1. Complete system and looks frigging brand new LOL. Might have to see if I can get some Quake II running. :eek: :peace: :eek: :peace:

Hehe, yes the KT7A is a fine board, I like it, too.

I started a little late with Computers, and missed the whole 286, 386, 486, etc. era (was more interested in motorbikes ;)). My first self made PC was an Asus P2B with a Pentium II 350MHz, an ELSA Victory Erazor (RIVA 128) and a TerraTec Maestro 32/96. Later I added one, then two Voodoo 2 12MB cards. At this time I had no Internet and was a bloody noob (must have been in 1997).
Some time (better some years) later I got 5000DM from an insurance and nothing could hold me.
My 2nd self made PC was a Abit KT7 (without A, it was in 2000), an Athlon Thunderbird 1000MHz, and I wanted a Voodoo 5 6000. That dream never came true (sigh). Instead I bought the first Radeon which was named "Radeon 64DDR". Some maybe know it better as "Radeon 256". 14 years ago this combination was a hell of a machine ... and I was lucky.

At the moment I got these KT7- boards:

Backfire, you have some seriously awesome nostalgic hardware man! It is soooo awesome to see this thread growing and all the great members showing such cool hardware.

Somewhere in this thread I started a conversation about building a web site devoted to nostalgic hardware, and I was in the works with it.......I put it on the back burner but now am thinking I should devote some time to getting that site put together and sending invites to everyone here!! Would make an awesome web site, I think!

Yes and I actually had some manufactures on board for doing a "nostalgic system of the month" with prizes for current hardware. :peace:

Couple of the manufactures were very excited to hear of such a site. :p So many manufactures made hardware that has been all but forgotten.

I think I will start working on that site again. What I would like to do is purchase Vbulliten as it is great site scripting software. Might be an issue though as I reaaaaaaaaaally can't afford it. :laugh:

Thinking about the Fractal Define XL for my Dell Precision 620 project. Tall enough for the board, probably tall enough for a standard ATX PSU if I can convert one to power the Dell board, otherwise I should still be able to fit the original PSU in. Also have a conversion to inverted ATX in mind. No idea what the pin-outs are for the power connectors, but I can work those out.

Probably can fudge the front panel connectors and just mod the Fractal's power/reset buttons to the Dell front panel control board.

If you want to use ATX PSU, maybe you must mod ATX PSU to DELL ATX connector. Measure voltages and write results on the paper. Next, do it with ATX and compare results. Here's ATX connector:

There's a pinout diagram for the Dell Precision 410 24-pin, which I believe is the same PSU as the Precision 620. There's an additional 20-pin that I'm not sure on. The conversion should be simple enough if I can get a 24-pin > 24-pin + 24/20-pin splitter to mod.
