Try real PC66 ram sticks of 64MB or less..

Yeah I will, sound card came last, and seller had a 16mb pc66 samsung stick of some sort, so I asked him to include it in the package. Looking at it now, tho, its dual sided, so idk about this. Will test it anyways

The green ones are Sanyo and there's also a pair of black ones mixed in there, those are Rubycon.

Interesting, I have one which has a mix of Rubycon and United Chemi-Con capacitors. The green caps on your board look very similar to various Taiwanese brands, but Sanyo is a Japanese top brand. I keep learning 😀

So, it's time for mine january-february haul report:

nVidia GeForce3 Ti200 (ASUS V8200T2/64M)
iHfx1sUm.jpg
I have a soft spot for ASUS-flavoured nVidia cards. And GeForce 3 are getting much more harder to find nowadays (at least in mine country). Sadly it's only Ti200, but still, it's GeForce 3.

nVidia GeForce4 Ti 4200 (ASUS V8420S/128M)
3dYUMwXm.jpg
Same goes for this card. But i've actually never had a "giant" Ti4200 (i have MSI GeForce 4 Ti4800SE that have sort of similar design):
mZyMq61m.jpg
(Oh, and btw, this Zalman heatsink is aftermarket (of course it is) 🤣 and was installed by me, since cooler from this card was dead, and i don't had any similar one lying around).

nVidia Riva TNT2 Pro (Gigabyte GA-660 Plus)
4xHqHMtm.jpgemUaDmqm.jpg
Not so usual TNT2 as you might think. Heatsink on the back of card is indeed, an interesting idea, but it was installed for a good reason. There's also a "Turbo" jumper that can perform a "hardware overclock" to the 170MHz core/180MHz memory (instead of standard 150/166). I guess overclockers was nuts about this feature back in a days. 🤣
But i guess everybody know about this feature, so...

Matrox Millenium G100 (G100A/2/OEM)

yR5oP4sm.jpg
Finally i found a working G100 (i already had couple, and none of them was in working condition for... unknown reason (i tested on 3 various mobos - ASUS P2B, ASUS CUSL2-C и Gigabyte GA-6VXC7-4X). This one finally ended this unlucky combo. Sadly enough there's only 2 megs of memory on board (i thought 4 megs was minimum on G100).

S3 Trio64V+ (Diamond Stealth 64 Video 2001)
dOPd9yym.jpg
There's nothing too fancy in S3 Trio cards, but this one was made by Diamond, so i guess it can have some little attention. 😀

3dfx Voodoo2 (STB V2-1000)

NnDjRlxm.jpg
Finally got a second V2-1000 and... you can guess what that means. 🤣
Still need to make SLI cabel, but i don't have any spare old floppy cabels.

Aztech Sound Galaxy Basic 16

0pCVdjkm.jpg
Lots of stuff happening here. Still, sadly there's no geniune OPL3 here.

ESS Allegro ES1989S (Labway Xwave 512) (I'm not quite sure if it's correct name of this card)
pHExrMQm.jpg

Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS

hp4Qrcrm.jpg
Interestingly enough, there's no IEEE 1394 connector.

ASUS P4T-E
(Socket 478)
v0OgT01m.jpg
Alrighty, i think that Pentium 4 is not quite retro (with the exception of socket 423). But RIMM memory is definitely an interesting moment.
That processor heatsink with "cooler" is piece of art indeed. 🤣

ASUS P3B-F (Slot 1)
S9S7KKKm.jpg

ASUS CU4VX (Socket 370)
5d5orOlm.jpg

ASUS P2B-LS (Slot 1)
KSDPfSZm.jpg
SCSI features makes P2B looks much more bigger. 🤣

ASUS P3V4X (Slot 1)
f7Ho2xdm.jpg

Intel D815EEA (Socket 370)
HP6gVAPm.jpg

Tiga TI-815 (Socket 370)
ZvOLSgNm.jpg

Oh, and also sorry that i forgot to remove watermarks of phone camera. 😀

Bought a Yamaha TG300 locally. Cost about $50 USD. Happy to have some oldschool Yamaha in the mix now 😀

Some pics, I'll post the rest in build log later when I update that.

Seems to be mainly Rubycon & Nichicon caps. Unfortunately a soldered Sony CR2450 battery, but fortunately not leaking. I'll have to replace that.

Good price for that unit. I have a TG100, which doesn't have the SFX on there for the rhythm channel (10). Does well for my mom's Yamaha CLP-500 piano and it played certain MIDI files better than my SC-55.

Not in my case - they are absolutely terrible to deal with. I had to go through my CC company and final the BBB to get refunded in full.

I have a FAT Agnus and an ACA500+ that comes with KS 2.0 and KS 3.1 as well as doing remapping the 512MB slow ram to chipram (and remaps 512K from Fast mem to Slow Ram if you want) so yeah I do have 1MB chipram to go with it 😉

careful, its probably OEM model, it may say SB0350 on the front, but check the serial number on the back. If its OEM model, the drivers for win9x wont detect it, so it will only be usable in win2000 and up

Ooh, that's a nice one. It may not have an OPL3 with genuine Yamaha markings, but that LS-212 is an exact 1:1 copy so should sound exactly the same as if it had been a YMF262-M.

Bought a cheap IBM Aptiva mouse that is really dirty and yellowed but I just need the cable and the interior to repair my own mouse that still looks very good.

Going to do some more searching to find my PS/1 replacement mouse but not expecting much luck there. If anyone has a (non-functioning) IBM PS/1 mouse they wish to sell me, send me a message. This is the model I need:

I got the socket 7 board to work finally, it was not picky about ram, it was just my ram sticks being oxidized from sitting on a shelf for a year. Scrubbed them real well with alchohol and now it works with all of them. Left a 64mb PC133 stick in it as a final

Woot.

So how does it sound compared to, say, Roland SC-88?

Never thought this thread would be that long, but now, for something different.....

From what I've heard, it's somewhere between an SC-55 and SC-88 in terms of sound quality. Definitely not as rich as any of the MU modules or the later SCs. Would be awesome to see x0zm post some recordings though 😀

I got this OEM Microsoft wheel mouse a couple months ago, so I guess I can post a bit of info about this. Here are some pics,

1551390945.th.29224.JPG
As you can see, it looks as if it were brand new. According to the previous owner (on eBay), this mouse has never been opened up before 😲

1551391086.th.76548.JPG

1551391206.th.50046.JPG
Of course, this is a PS/2 mouse. Although it came with a serial port to PS/2 adapter.

1551391286.th.77967.JPG
This is the package the mouse came in. This, as well as the mouse, also looks like it could be brand new, even though it's really not.

1551391419.th.38364.JPG
This mouse also came with a CD for Microsoft IntelliPoint 3.2, which are mouse drivers for this wheel mouse.

1551391505.th.77668.JPG
And of course, the manual for both the wheel mouse and MS IntelliPoint. Also in good condition.

I got this recently for an older PC I have that didn't have a freaking mouse (until now).
