Been looking for one of these for a while but online prices tended to put me off, so am very lucky to have found one on local classifieds more in my price bracket; an ASUS P2B-DS in excellent condition (Rubycon + other caps all look fine). It's a D02 pcb with uprated VRMs but not the later clockgen chip. Already tested with a pair of sloketed coppermine 850MHz cpus - happy days 😀
i hope there is a build log coming.
It would be rude not to, right 🤣 😀
Not sure of the exact specs atm, but probably something like:
CPU - dual sloketed coppermines (I know the modded v2 MS6905 Masters work with 850/256/100s, but I'm less sure about the 1000/256/100s, as the one I have to hand seemed unstable in single processor mode)
RAM - 1GB of PC100/133, although I did see a post here that these boards mis-report that much, but mine seems happy to report the full amount even if I mix brands and speeds of 256MB simms.
Video - probably something ATI, a 9800 Pro or maybe an X800
Sound - Creative, thou not sure what
Storage - SCSI all the way, thou may add some ATA/IDE as well
PSU - have a few period correct Enlight / AcBel between 300-400W that should do
Case - space dictates this will not be a full tower build, but I have some nice Macase / Enlight midi-towers from the period.
OS - may try out a few including 2000 Pro, XP Pro, W7 and maybe even Warp
Liking your dual workstation build btw 😎
