    ARGHbllll...if i did knew .... oh wait the seller doesn't accept Paypal and not sending outside Germany ...

    ok folks .... the HDAMA-I and the E6700 are almost here .... i can feel it ...

    also i have a Audigy 2 at home ... but the audio quality is beyond crappy ... but its not Creative's fault .... : Corroded jack plug .... i didn't took the "gold" one :roll:

    and nope its not too young i bought it for the Athlon XP rig originally so waaayyy enough old (for a 12yrs old chip :D ) ... or i could take out a Hercule Gamesurround Fortissimo II if i find her ... and more importantly the cable that goes with... that was my 1st real 5.1 audio card tho at the time i couldn't afford a 5.1 speaker set so i ended using two 2.0 speaker set xD i got the Hercule in 2001 (2years after mounting the A-XP rig and when i got feed up of the AC97 :roll:) and the Audigy 2 in 2003 when the price of it was a bit cheaper than at launch in 2002
    [​IMG]
    tho i had the blue PCB one but the box was that one, i should have kept the box and the cable :D but i am pretty sure i still have the card somewhere.

    Wrapped in a plastic bag in case it leaks before I get it externally mounted. Last thing I want is another ruined motherboard from batteries.

    Sealed retail boxed Intel SBT2. Didn't consider this at first, but the front panel connectors are proprietary. There's also some kind of proprietary 10-pin connector, I believe it's required if using a redundant power supply. No idea if it's actually required to boot the board or not. Apparently the board is intended to be used with the Intel SC5000 pedestal case, but I got other plans for it.

    Possible specs:
    Dual 1Ghz P3 Xeon SL4HF
    4GB PC133 ECC
    3DFX Voodoo5 5500 PCI
    Sound Blaster Audigy
    Dual 36GB Quantum SCSI drives

    Sealed Sapphire Radeon X1950 Pro AGP

    ASUS PC-DL

    Came with a pair of 2.8Ghz Xeons, but I picked up a pair of 3.2Ghz on the cheap, the best this board will officially run. Unfortunately this board only officially supports 533Mhz FSB, but I can probably OC it a bit.

    Those old dual CPU motherboards are so damn cool :toast:

    Found another 256MB PC133 stick and the Retro Rig detects 512MB, even the manual says it supports only 256MB. Now I just need winxp to it :)

    I have an Intel SRSH4 server that looks to have a very similar board layout and the 10-pin connector. When I get home I can tell you what it does on mine. Being a Pentium 4 Xeon Quad-processor system it doesn't see a lot of use as it draws more power than an Athlon X2 system while being slower.

    It's not the use, it's the feeling why we do this. ;)

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I am going to put another Athlon xp rig together here soon. This one I am going to stray away from the normal. LOL The Board is an Epox Krai pro with the Via Kt880 chipset.

    SBT2 specification manual indicates those proprietary front panel connectors are for LEDs and indicators apparently. Power and reset switches have their own separate headers which will accept standard power/reset switch connections. Lol, I hope this board boots without the 10-pin.

    Yep, the 4800 series was amazing. Really wish I hadn't sold my 4870s.
    Has AMD had a socket that hasn't been great in some way?
    Oh hell yeah. My AMD rig is still in a Dragon-style case.


    Ha. This entire post was AMD.
