Re: Not Even BCN's Russia Connections Can Top This One - Supermicro S2DGU Build

If its not a physically damaged pin (bent or broken), I've revived a few with cleaning. I use a bottle of rubbing alcohol with a sprayer. Spray the pins good, then use your finger and gently rub...

Re: Not Even BCN's Russia Connections Can Top This One - Supermicro S2DGU Build

Re: Not Even BCN's Russia Connections Can Top This One - Supermicro S2DGU Build

Just a few finishing touches.....since some 'Troll' ( :spin: ) made fun of my speakers....I remembered vaguely of some better ones in the attic that I bought new back in the 90's...but they quit...

Re: Not Even BCN's Russia Connections Can Top This One - Supermicro S2DGU Build

Thanks. This one is one of my favorite retro builds....Always wanted a slot-2 gamer way back in the day....not only were they way out of my budget, they were hard to find in non-server formats (ATX...

Re: Not Even BCN's Russia Connections Can Top This One - Supermicro S2DGU Build

Nearly the anniversary of this build.....and a slow day at the shop, so what the hell!!

Some GL Quake1 in 1024x768! The bliss of 3DFX cards and really old games. I couldn't make this work with...

Re: Not Even BCN's Russia Connections Can Top This One - Supermicro S2DGU Build

The voodoo2 needed no adapters, just the passthrough cable from your 2D GPU. The Voodoo3500 connector is something proprietary, the card is useless without the dongle....although there is a HP...

It's not DVI, it's an EVC interface. It's the breakout box for the TV tuner & capture functions. This card is circa 1999.

Re: Not Even BCN's Russia Connections Can Top This One - Supermicro S2DGU Build

I finally put this one together.....in the hunt for just the right case, I found some brand new in box Chenbro SR209 beige cases. Quality is good, no sharp edges, comes with all the fans....and did...

Re: Not Even BCN's Russia Connections Can Top This One - Supermicro S2DGU Build

The oldest/slowest I've ran W7 on was a dual Tualatin-S @ 1.4 with 4gb RAM (3.5gb usable). It wasn't a speed demon by any stretch, but it was very usable even by standards for Win7. I dont know how...
