Re: My retro build

Great, if your mobo has a 20-pin ATX power supply connector you could test it using a modern ATX power supply (you may need an ATX power supply with a detachable 20+4 pin ATX cable. O if you're lucky the last 4 pins of the modern 24-pin ATX connector might be able to hang off your motherboard …

Re: My retro build

In my opinion it might not be worth your time/effort to recap unless you see visible bulging or leaking of the existing capacitors. If you happen to be a novice at soldering (like I am) there is also a possibility of turning working hardware into non-working hardware. Perhaps the greatest risk would …

Re: Case Slot Fans and the Voodoo 3

Yes, the cooling solution blocks the slot below it. So I essentially have a triple-slot video card. This is actually somewhat annoying because the shared IRQ assignments on this motherboard mean that I can only use 2 PCI cards... which is barely enough for me to scrape by (sound, ethernet). I …

Re: X-Fi Driver install causes BSOD (Windows XP)

Hi everyone, thanks for the replies. Sorry for the late update. I tried the card in a totally different semi-modern PC (Phenom II running Windows 10). Windows 10 picked up the card immediately, sound worked fine. If I manually install any official (Creative) or unofficial (DanielK) driver, I get the …

Re: Case Slot Fans and the Voodoo 3

I use similar fan mounts to keep my voodoo5 cool. I think even if the v5 fans fails those big fans will be enough. For all I know the HSD have already failed. Although my fan mount annoyingly takes up 2 PCI slots, but not fully (more like 1.2), leaving a gap across the second slot. How did you …

Re: Case Slot Fans and the Voodoo 3

I had similar concerns with my Voodoo 3, and decided to buy this cheapo fan bracket from AliExpress: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32973335117.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.27424c4d6KMD6s I paired it with a couple modern Arctic 92mm fans. Not really period correct, but it keeps the Voodoo3 very cool. …

Re: X-Fi Driver install causes BSOD (Windows XP)

Thanks for the tip. Yeah I figured a clean install would be the nuclear option. I'll give that a go. Do you know of any specific improvements in Daniel_K drivers over official? I went to his website and read the material... from what I can tell it's mostly a repackaging of Creative assets where it …

X-Fi Driver install causes BSOD (Windows XP)

Hi everyone, I'm having trouble with a sound drivers and would be grateful for any insight you may have. I bought a used Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium (Fatal1ty), for use in a high powered Windows XP gaming rig. This is the PCI Express x1 card, model SB0880. When I remove the metal shield, the card …
