Yet another haul — this December has been particularly kind to me. I now have a bit of an issue, because I've nearly doubled my collection, and now I have to let go of some items, but nearly every thing in the last three hauls was new to me. So, here's what I got today for a total of 55 USD:

Two combo floppy drives by Epson, a Toshiba SCSI CD-ROM and a regular 5.25 inch drive

Those combo drives... Worth it!

Yeah, those combo drives are nice but if one part goes bad it’s not to east to find a replacement.

Do you have a higher resolution picture?

It's some rare proprietary keyboard (maybe for a really old word processor system?), that's for sure.

I sell 'ridiculously expensive' retro hardware to people like you. I feel sorry for that.

Early Christmas present - Intel Batman

Likely a dead non-socketed Dallas chip so there should be a minor soldering work. But other than that looks OK.

Isn't this a Dell OEM board (because of the AUX power connector)?

Nice find! That SX753 is a pretty rare very early Socket 4 Pentium too. So not only a nice board, but a rare CPU too.

Thanks. The CPU actually did not come with the board. It is from my collection. I thought it would complement nicely the board.

Intel sold these board to OEMs, but this one is not OEM. The power connector was actually a kind of standard on early PCI boards from Intel. It was meant to be providing 3.3V for PCI slots. The idea was that even 5V PCI slots should carry 3.3V and it was required by the early PCI spec, but not sure if it was actually used by any device.

There are some 3.3V PCI cards and slots but they are kinda rare.

Most PCI cards you can encounter are either 5V or universal (keyed for both 3.3V and 5V)

Scrap lot for less than 20€ (sellers pictures):
- 5,25" floppy
- 3.5" MFM MD
- 1x Seagate MFM HD: Critical point is usually the fragile flat cable at the front, unfortunately not visible on the photo
- 386 MB, for parts only...
All not looking good, but I hope some parts are working/repairable

I have 486 boards that require repairs beyond my capability and would gladly ship them to you if you didn't live in the US. 😒

Are you looking for particular 486 boards? The last (3) 486 VLB boards I got off Ebay were under $50, the cheapest being $19 shipped. I wouldn't consider that too bad.

Nothing, but pure awesome! Wonder if this cool Christmas find/release will run on that system?
