Bought a retro computer - only known was motherboard - ASUS CUBX-E - additionally found:
- USB Panel for this motherboard + wiring
- InsideTNC Riva TNT2 Pro
- Pentium III 800MHz + Titan Golden Orb?
- Crystal CS4281-CM - PCI sound card - I don't expect much, but PCB has very nice green colour
- 192MB SDRAM
- 3 hard drives - Samsung 20GB, Seagate 40GB, WD 40GB - not tested yet
- old network PCI card
- Working LG 52x32x32 CD RW
- Modecom Logic 350W

It was fun to dig into this machine, though I've expected a little bit more - at least for graphics - but could've been worse 😀

Nothing fancy, just a simple DVD-RW for my mII build.. I bought it because it looked very clean and also very simple.

Got this for my CPU collection today. A nice AMD 5k86 SAA/5. The CPU that later became the K5.

Week 16, 1996 - so one of the earliest ever made.

HI again,
Your board is not exactly the same as mine, I just have seen it.
I seem to have higher integrated (less) chips on it. And what's obvious: Your board has the Weitek and the cpu socket exchanged. So also the link to Stason does not fit 100% to your board, because there is the Weitek and cpu socket like on my board. But maybe that's just a minor detail.

I see. Looking forward to getting to the storage unit this summer and taking it apart for cleaning. I'll get better photos of it then for my archives. Either way, lovely systems.

It is just a non-upgradable ATI Winturbo not the high-end Graphics Pro Turbo, but still happy to finally find one at relatively affordable price. I'll have a thought about the "Non-upgradable" sticker 😉

Picked up a joystick from a local charity store.

Bought this Creative sound card CT4810 today for 3 EUR. There's absolutely nothing special about this card (in my humble opinion), except a nice price, but I had a feeling that sooner or later the seller would throw it away. So, for the sake of community, I bought it 😀

Very nice!

CUBX-E is a great motherboard, and that promise controller is 1 million times better than the CMD controller on the plain CUBX.

It has been a little while since my last update, so this is a doozy.

I was waiting for the InWin IW-A500 to show up on eBay, and it did, but I hemmed and hawed about buying it and someone here got it. 😉

Another NIB one was posted so I snatched it up.

I also collect Japanese accelerators, and IBM 486SLC/2/3/etc chips, so I got the IBM upgrade diskette for the SLC2 chip (I guess it has the stuff to enable the 16kb cache), a SLC2/50 upgrade for a ThinkPad to harvest a chip from for a project, and a Japanese SLC2/50 upgrade for my Sega Teradrive.

Never thought I would see that one again. I had one back in the 90s...

Sold here in NZ by Dick Smith electronics, an Australian company. Had a few of their products, when on sale, and still have a few. Not a prevalent as they use to be back in the day.

Download the picture, attach it to your post, and inline it. I wasn't able to get it to show up. Something with imgur is funny.. Apparently the link to the image doesn't actually work if you try to link the picture directly.

I had one in the 90's too. It is (with the exception of those 80's joysticks) the worst of the worst when it comes to joysticks. It is incredibly lightweight, so it doesn't feel solid. Additionally the suction cups are absolutely useless - no idea what they were thinking with this design. Horrible product but nice to see one and get reminded again though.

I just bought 16 4GB PC3200R DDR1 sticks. Chüp.
They are not easy to find, and usually priced hilariously.
4GB on a single DDR1 stick is very elusive, and totally overkill, love it. I will put them in to my mid 2000 daily driver. If anyone needs some of these, hit me up, I actually only need 8 of them... 32GB DDR1 here I come.

There weren't actually that many manufacturers of these. And most manuals that do talk about the possibility of adding 32GB DDR1 into your 8 slots, usually had it asterisked in some way ("Not tested on release date", etc)

New Adaptec EISA 2742W

Not sure if I dare to unbox it, new hardware from 1995. I hope it still works.
Why do people have still unboxed stuff from the 90s? I have no idea.

I have to decide to either put it into the Compaq Prosignia Server, or into the machine with the Micronics EISA mainboard.

Nice find. Got mine from a retired Adaptec employee years ago.
Still have 4 NIB AHA 2742T still shrinkwrapped.
I would keep it boxed. The benefit of the wide SCSI interface ist not really worth unboxing the board.
eisapc

No, I don't like it boxed, makes no sense to me. I (more or less) stopped collecting parts, got rid already of most of my mainboards, graphics cards and so on ....
Most likely I won't make another retro build, except I get an AMI Enterprise IV mainboard, then I will make an exception 😁

Hey... Upgradeable or not... It is a VLB card. 👍

Don't eat stuff off a 15 year old never cleaned cpu cooler.
