It is my opinion that the way you communicate is direct, argumentative and a bit rude. You might want to consider toning it down a bit, you are not making many friends.



Im not sure why you did get to that conclusion just after my comments, my nick name is there it is explain everything...
And about the friends, you think i care ? I did reg. here just to find more intel about some systems and parts, not to make friends, and to show my progress on whatever i do, because i think to make one day some museum, real or internet based one with galleries, while most people here and most sites and places are collecting all of the items just for themselves, while i don`t....
I have my ways to find great hardware, while i don`t pay much money, or no money at all, do you think i need friends, or im better alone....

@TheAbandonwareGuy... oh come on! Do you have to be such a moralist... Thats so annying, you're acting like a "little sheriff wannabe".
Like on "Ebay auctions" thread, you're the firs one to judge and call other users, that don't act in the way you like "scumbags, morons etc." You're the same user as everyone else.

Yeah, sorry, I'm not particularly good with people who fail to try to inform themselves and then get PO'ed when you point that out. :sweatdrop:

Anyway, I wish Radical Vision the best of luck with his museum, because he'll need it to get anywhere... :-S

I bet that one is because i responded to your Compaq thread telling you, i got even better machines for way smaller amount of money....
But seems you did see an opportunity to give it back to me, what you think about what i say in your thread, but this is what i think, i don`t want and i don`t have fun time telling other people they have made wrong decisions compared to me, everyone is different, and they have their minds, ideas and other so im not pretending nothing, i just see other people do things, that to me look like really bad decisions, this is why i did tell you that in your thread, because for me is really, really strange while i can do what i do, others pay so much money for me is just unreal...
And more of because with 80 dollar or euro i can get so much hardware, sell some of it, and with the new money get more hardware, sell some of it, and repeat, and repeat...

But seems you did not like what i did say, still from my point of view (not the dead POV brand..) your buy was bad, but who knows seems i just know how to do that type of things, spending lesser amount of money, and what is more interesting, getting for the same amount of $ way more hardware...


Ooh i just remember you did try to trade me bugged Voodoo 2 STB Black magic for fully working Voodoo 1, and i shut down the whole thing, maybe this response is because of that, well sorry i don`t want/need broken hardware i have enough broken myself...

This seems to have gotten way out of hand just for posting some midi modules.

Agree... don't know why would someone bitch about midi modules as it seems he doesn't know what they even are... I get that you can't know everything but get informed and then bitch around if you still think you have the case.

I knew nothing about them before joining here... I was never into music in those days. I still don't have any external modules but have many DB and Yamaha/Roland cards.

Since this is a bought thread... Today I bought a little something:

Yup. That's what sometimes happens when you make fun of people.

Now on topic - not retro, but got me a HP Z600 dual LGA 1366 workstation barebone for 200 euro. These machines are out there, sold for this price, yet people still charge the same amount for a GA-X58-UD3R motherboard. F***ing stupid.

It came with a pair of LGA 1366 coolers, the original ones it seems. I installed 16gb of Hyinx ECC DDR3, a SSD, a a Gigabyte RX480 4GB and a pair of 3.06GHz X5675 hexa core xeons I had laying around.

Always wondered about the "RapidCAD" - is this a special item or "just" a fancy x87?

RapidCAD 1 is very similar to a 486, with RapiCAD 2 supplying the FERR signal that a 386/387 system expects.

I looked up the RapidCAD and it looks like it's for the 386 systems that acts as an Intel i486 DX processor (CPU+FPU)
C64, WheelWriter 10 Series II, Pack-Mate 28 Plus, K6-2/300, Pavilion N3350, iMac G3/600 Graphite, Socket 370, Pavilion 7955, Athlon 64, Dimension 4550, Dimension E510, ThinkPad R40, Presario C700, ASUS X54C, Raspberry Pi B+, 2-3, Custom FX-6300

Guess it's just an upgrade that turns a 386 into something that can at least be used for basic Computer Aided Design (CAD) tasks, possibly in combination with specific CAD software that took advantage of 486 abilities. Useful for companies that had the money for a processor upgrade but not for buying complete new 486 systems.

RapidCAD 1 is a CPU, RapiCAD 2 is the FPU. They are used as a pair to replace both. I don't know why though :)


Because the Rapidcad is a 386 socket CPU, and as such it does not have a built-in floating point unit. The smaller chip is the FPU.

As far as I know, they contain some 486 instructions, but no L1 cache like a 486, so a rapidcad should be faster then a 386, but slower then a Cyrix 486DLC witch has L1 cache.

A lot of 16 CPUs for cheap. Cheap enough that I bit even though there was only a pic of the rear of the CPUs

Anybody have any idea what the 2 in the top left of this picture could be? (looks to be a solid 17x17 PGA setup - 289 pins)

I saw that listing and was surprised that it wasn't automatically way more expensive BECUZ GOLD!!!! Computer scrappers make me cry. So much neat\rare\valuable stuff lost to being demolished or melted down for a few bucks worth of metal.

I've sent a few eBay messages over the years telling people that they may want to research some things before they rip chips off of PCBs or snip off "Gold fingers", as I've seen 3dfx cards, extremely old sound blasters and other things in scrap listings, where they have already been partially harvested from and were destroyed. Nothing like using a pair of tin snips to turn a $300 "for scrap, as is" motherload of old parts into a $25 "for scrap, as is" lot of junk. :dead:
