Re: Dell Dimension 466i Restoration/Build

I wouldn't be so sure about the BIOSes. There is a chance the board would be similar to something else out there, but almost all the Dells I've worked with had their own custom mobos, and almost all (if not all) had Phoenix BIOS. Which pretty much means no luck modding it. Granted, I don't have as …

Re: Asus P2B-DS Build

I've actually reused the case also, it now houses a HTPC (I use that term loosely, it is powerful enough to run Steam to stream Cyberpunk from Sorceress across 100km from another town via a VPN :), and the blue lighting is just icing on the cake.

Re: Asus P2B-DS Build

Is that Antec Three Hundred I spy in this build? Loved that case, it used to house Assassin before I moved it into Define R6... and long before it was called that. Brings back memories... Come to think of it, it was the first case I used that wasn't an El Cheapo, and wouldn't house El Cheapo …

Re: Building retro gaming PC 1999

Not much to add, other than you may be more interested in easy underclocking, rather than overclocking. Try to find a board with BIOS-controlled FSB, so that you can easily drop your 600MHZ down to below 450. There are some DOS games that don't work on 450+ but are quite fine at 300. Also, if you …

Re: Post your 'current' PC

Being immeasurably bored during this lockdown version of New Year, I figured I've never posted in this thread... Some of you may already be acquainted with my little Sorceress, but, if not, here goes. As befits a proper mage, she's not the youngest girl on the block. But that doesn't detract from …
