K6-2+ and Voodoo 3 w/ older brother

Postby HeavyD8086 » 2019-2-11 @ 01:11

Hi guys, figured I'd show you some of my latest fruits of labour.

The beige box has a K6-2+ and a Voodoo3 combo.
The black one is a 386DX40. It's almost completely working, but the serial port on my IO card isn't working. Currently waiting on replacement.

And a little something something once I figure out how to fix its floppy woes. I'm hoping a serial connection can help me get the needed files over.

Thanks for all your help over the years, Vogons! Looking forward to breaking down these builds a little more for you in the coming weeks.

Some time this year I will put togeather my 4-1 AMD K6-500mhz. Builds.
I purchased several Super socket seven motherboards a while back but the capacitors have gone bad on them and need to be replaced. I have just been busy to repair them.

Hey guys!

As soon as the serial card comes in for the 386, I'll add some better pictures. The keyboard fuse went on its motherboard as well, and it's just bodge-wired for now. It makes me nervous.

DaveJustDave, I'm blaming you for increasing interest in the PS/1 audio adapter the week I got my PS/1. That's not on. It was literally a couple days after I picked up the system.

So, I tried two different serial mice and two different serial IO cards on the 386 and can't get it working. If anyone can think of anything simple I'm missing, I'm all ears.

In its place, I built a Pentium 4 HT machine with a 6800GT. Away for work this week, pics incoming.
