Re: NexGen Nx586-P90

This mod is still on my list. The ICs have been sitting in a bin; I'd have to take the motherboard out of the case though. Did you just replace those 8 chips, or was there more to the mod? Did you use solder paste, or solder the pads one-by-one with a contact-based soldering iron? When you say that …

Re: Market value for popular or rare classic computer hardware

Here's a listing I was watching. It was for a new, in box VisionTek socket 3 upgrade interposer. I've never seen one of these before. When I think of VisionTek, it reminds me of those mid-to-late 2000's video upgrade companies that used mainstream Nvidia and AMD/ATI graphic units with their own …

Could you share some sold listings of these wavetable boards? I haven't been tracking these. Serda shop now has a lot of neat wavetable boards. They used to just have the DreamBlaster X2 and the S2, but now have things like an E-Wave (ESS ES692S), QWave (QS1000 based), X2GS (official Roland GS/GM …

Can we please get over the fact, that everything non Intel or AMD (pre 686) stuff fetches top dollars nowadays? It makes those screenshots with the underlying unexpressed anger very unneccessary. Could you be more specific with what you are referring to? Since I'm the only one posting screenshots …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

Here's another listing I was watching. A Cyrix DRx2-25/50 with factory heatsink sold for $280 USD. That was WAY more than I would have guessed. Normally the DRx2-33/66 was the rarer and more sought after. https://www.ebay.com/itm/195243090185 There has been an increasing trend in the omission of " …

Super 386 Chips - 33 MHz with mangled pins and non-working condition listed, sells for $177.50 USD https://www.ebay.com/itm/394163786275 I wasn't sure what to make of the value because I don't see these for sale very often. Price was too high for me though. I was going to put in a bid for $80, but …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

I was thinking of these for the 3.3 V fixed part: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/392632814100 and these for the adjustable part: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/181847311430 They are certainly cheap enough. I'll try to make space on the PCB for the regulator. I'll start with the variable unit to find a sweet spot …
