Yes, maybe I will tell him how much value he destroyed...after receiving the 2nd box. he didnt answer on my question if he has other parts left. In another auction he sold the remains of the PSUs...

Top right is this one:

The Hypercom 3 connects to the clock port of the A1200 and provides it with a high speed serial port (460,000bps) and a high speed bi-directional parallel port (560,000bps). The Port Plus is simply believe to be a Hypercom 3, rebadged and sold by Eyetech

Personally I wouldn't really mention it to the seller lest you destroy your chances of buying similar "scrap" lots in the future.

Last time I tried to tell a seller about how they destroyed a good card by cutting off the edge connector they told me they received it that way... yeah, right....

The other small card belongs to this (Ebay picture):

MICRONIK Z-1i BUSBOARD 6860 Rev.5.44 ZorroII-ISA-PCI for Amiga 1200 A1200 tower

The busboard itself will come with the 2nd box hopefully...

I would be more happy if the systems would still be in one piece than buying cheap scrap lots...so maybe next time he will offer the whole PC. I wouldnt buy it for 2000€, but others for sure...

No, I was talking much simpler design:

BTW, you messed up your photo embed from Google.

If it's hosted on Google Photos, try this: Re: Televideo Telewave Audio 32 sound card, questions about its onboard wavetable ROM

If it's on Google Drive, there's something else to do instead.

OR you could always attach the photo.

Teapos from 14-15 year ago are the epitome of capacitor plague in my experience, all my Socket A stuff with Teapo caps bulged and leaked.

Teapo low/ultra low ESR caps are crap. More general purpose Teapo caps are better.

All hail the Great Capacitor Brand Finder

The smaller one has thin fins so it wouldn't surprise me if it cools better. The big one has a thicker base so it will probably take longer to heat up and the temps will probably stay more steady but the CPU will probably run hotter overall.

Prepare to be surprised. I did a test, and the outcome was no surprise to me. I ran Prime95 for over an hour with both coolers installed, all else the same, using Arctic Silver 5 on both. The AX7 was 10 degrees cooler, while still being less noisy.

Mind adding some description for those of us not versed in MCA? I mean, one of them says "Ram Expansion", so no questions there, but the others I have no idea what they are.

Also no expert and have to google. But the most important everybody should know is the original IBM 8514/A 😉

#1 IBM 8514/A One of the very first VGA cards with some form of 2D acceleration
#2 probably a parallel port card - i'd have to google the 40-pin dip chips to be sure
#3 2-8mb expansion board. Probably designed for the 386 IBM model 80, but would fit most ps/2 systems with a 32-bit MCA slot.
Also, those 72-pin simms that were in that same lot of items, go in that board. Its special ram.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

There is an Amiga accelerator in there, looks like an 020 or 030 for an A1200?

The rest is certainly not standard/trash either IMO..
