Socks worthy of a true warlord! ;D

Check out my AmiBay and eBay for ISA and PCI card, 286/386/486 Pentium motherboards and more.

That case and dual floppy drive. My first VooDoo2 had an issue where it would get detected, but games and DirectX Diagnostics (dxdiag) wouldn't work and the display properties kept crashing when I would select V2 1000 from the list of tabs. Bought another one on eBay and no issues so far. Might get more for my Athlon 64 Windows 98SE setup.

Got a less common variant of 486DX2-66 with write-back L1 cache (right). On the picture next to my ordinary DX2-66 (left)

Aztech card arrived today...in an envelope. But seem to have survived the shipment. Missing slot bracket seem to be identical to the 1350B, on the picture the one from my last "scrap"-lot 😀

Damn, just got outbid on an Alaris Leopard. Fortunately some post came to soothe my sorrows:

First up, big stuff. A keyboard I just had to get once I saw it. It isn't just huge, it's ludicrously big. I would have compared it to my IBM Model F 122 'Battleship' (it's bigger 😮) but that's at work so here it is next to a tiny Model M instead.

Can't test it yet as it needs its own power supply for all those LEDs and the character display.

Also received a smaller keyboard.

Yes, it may look like a gamepad, but look at that DIN pass through - this is actually a keyboard. Finding software for it is going to be fun though...

Inside a NOS AT desktop. Plastic-y as hell and no rear feet by design, but hell, a brand-new AT case is always a cause for rejoicing 😀

Got any model or part number for that case? I've been trying to find the exact same (finding AT cases is tough but desktop ones [not tower cases] is even harder) for a future system that I'll build.

Beautiful case, nice to see one 'new' with the box. Might give a clue to the manufacturer.

I have two similar cases, a desktop (not exactly the same I think but I can't find it at the moment) and a compact tower (thanks dionb). There are many variations out there. There a a few in this topic also: PC tower cases by year

luckily for me they just were on ebay, I posted about them here like 2-3 weeks ago, and the seller even relisted more after I posted about it but those too were gone pretty quickly.

The box has two identifiers on it, O-MD-W and O-MD-B, with circles next to them so the relevant one can be ticked. No tick.

Inside absolutely nothing on the outside of the case apart from "Made in Taiwan".

And then there's this:

Wtf? Whatever this case is, it is *not* a Packard Bell...

Interesting. I didn't get mine from ebay, but from Marktplaats, the NL 'Craigslist'. Was your seller Dutch?

Wow that's a nice lot of finds you've had recently 😀
If you've got a 3d printer, check out this thread - I made a bracket for my SB pro, it should also fit your CT1350B clone: No Bracket for SB Pro 2 CT1600

pretty intresting cases, looks like 4U AT server case with a fancy front. The snap for the drive bay doors looks like somthing that will break after 3 weeks though thats what kills it for me.
