Got this Conner for cheap, it even works, but has bad sectors after 350MB-400MB, so isolating after 350MB will prob make it work fine.. WIll need to find program for that..

Now, dilemma is cooling. I'm inclined to go with NOS Zalman VF900, since original Asus cooler is completely flat surfaced and may cause premature death of the GPU 🙁. Considering blue (or red) porcupines for BGA memory chips. Memory is 2.5ns Hynix and it doesn't seem to run too hot, so maybe without porcupines? I'd really like to use the card 😀.
PS: Playing with Nvidia Riva cards lately, I completely forgot how insanely good image quality is on those Radeons 😀. You can notice it from post screen.
Got one of these some years back, and was ded (as usually with shitty ASUS..) it was with the original cooler too, missing fans, but the GPU was totally dead massive artifacting, could not see anything, did try to bake the card in the oven and this shit happened...
Now the card is on the wall on a colleague`s basement 🤣 ..
Yes Radeons have better image quality and colors, some ppl claim that is false, but it is true.. not to mention aside from the Radeon 9700 pro, 9800 and x800 series, rest of the Radeon family are alot more durable then 80% of GEforce models out there, that just die, or artifact hard...

Something that I was seeking for years as a Compaq lover, a near mint Compaq G80-11800 mechanical keyboard (1994), PT layout, with vintage Cherry MX browns for a reasonable price of 50$. I absolutely love it and I'm gonna use it on my main rig.
Very nice found, i am looking myself for this exact model, but never have seen it here locally, or to know any collector to have it.. At least i have MX Black and MX Blue keyboards... Really prefer the MX Blues over the MX Blacks.. Compaq is a love for sure, one of the great old brands, they did not cheap out on any of their computers, they are build like tanks, that was expected from IBM ( a big corporation), not from someone small as Compaq was... I think this Compaq was one of the very few mechanical keyboards they did have.. There was some older ones like Compaq Enchanted Keyboard series, but they was not with Cherry MX, but foil and foam BS of switches...
I will be alot more happier, if i manage to find NorthGate Omnikey 101, since they are the ultimate ALPS keyboards... Or maybe Cherry G80-1000 MX Blue model..
