Couldn't resist couple of good deals, + 4 soundcards into my pile

Nice - a SB PRo 1.0 clone ( the AV300 card)

That is one of the cards I would like to get my hands on but have only ever seen 1 for sale and it went for a stupid high price.

Two Intergraph TDZ 2000 GX1 workstations from 1999, one has dual PII XEON's and the other dual PIII XEON's
Really awesome and expensive workstations back then, the PII XEON base config cost $4999!

Made a small photo gallery with pics of them: https://lychee.jjserver.net/#16045172464447

The cases have a very cool design and the front covering the CD and floppy drive can be open and it "folds" away out of sight.

Both machines were packed with 5 screaming SCSI HDD's

Absolutely Loving it! What specs are those Xeons?

I've got this things today.
This is the first time I've seen slotket with dual s370. I cannot find any information about it. It has some jumpers and I am not sure what to do with them and I also don't have working Slot 1 mobo (except dual Slot 1 Tyan - it could be fun put two dual slotkets in it and have quad s370 😀)...
Zip drive is also nice (and the first I've ever had) and RAM sticks are always good to have. In the haul was also Trio 64DX, Pentium 200MMX and 4x 8MB EDO SIMMs.

Zoltrix Audio Performer, to be precise; also seen it before just once. It appeared to be really nice sounding card but by default very quiet, so volume tool from its driver pack is essential. Btw, original software installer and diagnostic apps are speed-sensitive, but the other tools and the card itself do not seem to be affected.

Tiara LanCard/E*PC10BT, an 8b ISA Ethernet card - with UTP.

Saves me from using 16b card in 8b slot, or AUI to UTP transceiver, both ugly IMHO.

Do you have a clearer photo of your 'dual socket' slotket?

I know QDI had a product called TwinMagic which included a similar adapter board, but I think it only worked in their matching Slot 1 motherboard, though I guess cases & support weight may have been issues - at least yours has the cartridge support included.

Haven’t fired them up yet to check but I am pretty sure the PII Xeon’s are 400Mhz and the PIII Xeon’s are 500-550Mhz
Thinking of selling the PII Xeon mobo and replacing it with a dual Tualatin 1.4Ghz PIII mobo instead

Omg, I totally missed that giant purple monster.

Good lord, its beautiful.

Also, that dual 370/slot 1 adapter will only work with a very select few motherboards.

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

Looked at the pictures now from my 24" monitor rather than the phone, and I see clearly marked "450" on one of them. Must be the PII then 😀

Nice. You must have paid a pretty price for that? I'm glad I never sold mine, although I've lost other hardware over the years (moving around). I have the exact same card. I think I got it in late '94 and it currently sits in my 486/100 build next to a CT1740.

Maybe not the best picture, but I can see a bunch of bad capacitors in the CPU area. You might want to replace them.
