Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

And in return, I got another eATX SM chassis... one of the big 8x SAS ones. (Built it up last night, will post in the relevant thread later).

The Voodoo card was part of a vanload I got back in my...

Re: Went Kayaking....and it's not what you're thinking! HP XAs Restoration!

It's not a 3DFX card, but you have an old radeon AGP card coming in your next ratdude loot shipment ;).

I think it's a 9000 or something of that vintage.

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Nforce Pro 3000 series (nVidia's offering for socket F).

They do run toasty... hence why both of my SM boards with Nforce pro chips (one is for socket 940, the other for socket F) have fanned...

Re: Dell 960 Memory Allocation

As quirky as VIA was, they were indeed the best for consumer coppermine boards.

Too bad ALI wasn't making chipsets at the point... The Super7 and 370 Celeron ones were nice. Much less quirky than...

Re: Dell 960 Memory Allocation

512mb 815? Even by PIII coppermine standards, that was dog crap. :bartmoon:

Re: Dell 960 Memory Allocation

Something like that. I can't remember the specifics. Came into play when I was trying to use the Gavotte PAE RAMdisk routine to maximize the 4GB on my Dell Latitude D630's XP setup (it had a discrete...

Re: Need to find a 34-Pin Motherboard Floppy Header

That's the burning question, I don't know... It *appears* they are, and the setting in the BIOS to enable floppy... It was a cheap gamble, it may be a miserable failure.[/QUOTE]

I remember now....

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Yeah. Originally all SLI boards were limited to 8 Lanes per slot... but not on either of the two Nforce Pro chipsets (the Socket 940 Nforce pro 2000 was the first to support dual 16 lane SLI,...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

The build coming to the case I'm trading off you is based on the SM EATX version of that board. The Nforce Pro 3000 series chipset is good (as was the 2000 series for socket 940).

Hex-core CPUs...

Re: Dell Dimension 1100? ...or is it? The Ultimate Sleeper System

If the case has standard Dell audio headers, they did make alienware/XPS Audigy x-fi cards for this. I have one in my dual 940 rig (with a HP-spec'd standard HDA header soldered in place of the dell...

Re: Dell Dimension 1100? ...or is it? The Ultimate Sleeper System

My wife plays WOW on my x7DCA... no sweat @ 1080P with a GTX 970. I'm running low voltage CPUs too (due to the case's poor cooling); since you're going into presumably a better cooled case, you might...

Re: Need to find a 34-Pin Motherboard Floppy Header

Are all the passives there too? I tried this (or something similar) on something similar if memory serves to no avail.

That said, on the other hand, I added a HDA header to to the unpopulated...

Re: New Design: Helper Board for Video Head Units

A bit belated, but I got boards... and some issues happened.

The board itself works OK... the issue is the head unit itself and some missed conveniences:
