Got these two motherboards from a website called Alltronics (can't find the thread about them, did it get deleted/moved?)

Looks like it was deleted. Glad I saved the url 😀

Anyone ever heard of an Acermate 433? Just bought this thing, probably paid too much, but it does power on and complains about not having a disk. Won't be delivered to me for a while, but itching to know more about it.

The model is elusive as hell. There's a bit of info online about the 386 variants, and the 486 model, but not the 433, which I'm assuming is a 485 SX 33 or something.

Anyone got any idea?

This is the best picture I could get of it. Thanks.

Yeah. I'm assuming so. Looking forward to pulling it apart. This is like Kinder Surprise for grownups. I hope it's got a sound card in it. The only spare I have is a CT4170, and they sound like arse.

Beige external SCSI Zip drive with PCMCIA adapter. Can be used with either DB25 SCSI or PCMCIA. This should be good for transferring quickly between a PC and my Amiga computers.

Can anybody identify this socket 3 board? Has no manufacturer name on it.
Its in nice shape. No IDE or floppy headers though. Guess I would need an I/O controller, right?

I don't believe "ASY 01-00333- [blank] rev [blank]" is the actual board name. Google doesn't come up with anything.

I bought Pentium 4 Cedar mill last few months ago, which is intel's last mainstream single core unit.
windows 98 compatibility ends with ICH5 (officially), so I struggle to find i865PE + ICH5R with ISA motherboard.
Probably some industrial motherboard is answer.

Careful with this board, I can see 2 leads on one chipset is crushed. Make sure it is not shorted, use high magnification loupe.

Cheers,

I also bought one "Bad Mother" plus some misc HS and fans, and it all arrived today. Here is the board they sent, a Intel based Soc 7 TX mobo (a psuedo AT with PS/2 KB and PS/2 mouse back so will need special backplate) .
Was a gamble so it may not work but I do spend about $20 a week on lotto tickets and never win so figured this may be a better gamble as for getting a winner 🤣.
Have not tested it yet as it just arrived an hour ago. The back is as clean as the top so if it does not work most likely bad caps or VRM issues....
Did see the broken Soc 7 lever and silicon glue ball near the front panel header. Easy fixes !
EvieSigma: Here is hoping your boards work and mine too !
added: Mines a ECS P5TX BPro v2 motherboard. Have yet to find maker of that 486 board of yours ....being VLB and PCI would be great if you can make it work...

Hate posting a reply and have to edit it because it made no sense 😁 First computer was an IBM 3270 workstation with CGA monitor. 🤣 Second computer a 286 12Mhz with real IDE drive ! After that came 386, 486, Pentium, P.Pro and everything after....

Oh it's not 486, it's a Socket 4 Pentium! Which...I of course do not own any of, I have to buy a CPU and heat sink just to test the board.

I think it could be this one from Free Computer Technology

Oops yeah noticed after I posted about 486, was hard to see in that plastic bag.

This one is a closer match
http://www.win3x.org/uh19/motherboard/show/2663

Actually there are 3-4 boards that match his board here http://www.win3x.org/uh19/motherboard/result/ … 2:%225%22%7D%5D

I'm sure they're all the same. Only it was sold under several brands and the people that made the schemas on th99 didn't always properly draw the schema.

@Aublack can you turn it on and show us the post screen / dump the ROM ? It'd help identify who exactly made it ^^ (and also eventually help people in the future that miss the bios for this one)

But that doesn't match either; yours only has 4 RAM slots not 6.

If you're still looking for make/model on this board, I think it's this one

Cool board indeed. I love the "Made in USA" sticker. 😀

It's under review in the mod section, it'll either come back as locked or be open again.

Got some more ram sticks today. Nothing special, but at least there are some SDR rams, which covers 1997 to 2001 era, that I like a little more.

Bought a Pentium75. Just because this was my first Pentium back in time 😀 A little bit expensive ( 15$ )

Yeah, I noticed. They don't seem to be touching though.

Its pretty close, but you linked the Pent version. I think this is the right one.

https://stason.org/TULARC/pc/motherboards/G/G … 486PCI-135.html

I found some burn marks on the back of the board. I though it was rust or something, but I'm pretty sure something went wrong at one point.

I bought two AMD K6-2+ 350mhz 1.5v CPUs

I guessed that they can probably handle 2.0v as the other K6-2+'s and the 1.5v is just for low wattage mobile? so quite good for oc maybe 😀 Can someone confirm before i blow one x) I have a ss7 board that goes down to 1.8v the rest to 2.0v
