nope. you had your chance to actually sit and think before you typed, and you chose not to.

some people? you mean you? and an a very sparse wikipedia entry?

don't tempt me lol. I have two identical packard bell cases with the same cpu in them. The only difference is one is lpx and the other is atx. You going to sit there and pretend that the lpx pentium 1 will somehow be hotter? lol , in your dreams

gee , can't figure out why I'm so condescending and insulting. maybe it might be when you type this kind of garbage to someone who knows lpx a lot better than you and your 5 minute wikipedia knowledge do.

See , this just goes to show that you don't know a lot about the platform.

all of these are direct bolt in lpx boards that even fit the rear flat I/O standard for old packard bell and ibm cases. all of these boards are used in industrial machines , the kind of machines that hardly ever get turned off. And these are just a few examples of ones that have flat lying I/O there's plenty more that use much taller I/O standards.

an just for good measure heres one that's DUAL SOCKET 8, but no go ahead and continue telling someone that lpx couldn't support hotter cpu's even though this is literally the first time you've seen all 4 of these boards.

not that any of that matters

becuase i recommended a measly pentium 2 which needs less airflow than a child blowing out birthday candles. what a waste of my time trying to teach people stuff they can look up themselves. yeesh

emosun: Normally I try to avoid instigating your kind of irrational behavior, but after your last two posts did you go smile at yourself in the mirror because of how awesome you are?

Seriously, get a grip and try not take a difference of opinion so personally.

ya know , I would have preferred he let it go. Because it takes time to type all that and he'll barely skim it anyway. In the grand scheme of things , so long as we aren't name calling or yelling , then it's just a heated discussion. :blah:

But that's the thing. YOU are not participating in a heated discussion. You're clearly taking it personal and by preferring he "let it go", it's obviously a competition for you to prove who's right and who's wrong.

If you re-read this thread, where did anyone ask what your opinion was? Since this is a public forum for people with like-minded interests to discuss interesting topics, obviously everyone is welcome to SHARE their opinions. But to lash out irrationally and pound your chest claiming you're right and he's wrong...that's not conducive to a constructive discussion.

My comments on the matter only cause to further derail this particular topic, so I'll refrain from posting any further to that effect.

You know I usually agree with that. Like nvidia vs ati or amd vs intel or raid 0 vs 1, there's no real correct answer at all. It's very much open to interpretation.

But saying a board overheats due to it's shape , just isn't correct. Especially in ye olde pentium 1 and 2 days. These boards were phased out because they needed two pcb's and it's cheaper to make one. Thats why AT and ATX were usually the dominant form factors , they're cheaper and easier to make.

but yeah we're so far off topic now its nuts :lol:

Out of idle curiosity, are there any options for sourcing new/NOS LPX cases?

Excuse me? You started acting all high and mighty instead of just being civil, and now you accuse me of not letting it go? Festerblatz is entirely right about this, you made it personal - and keep making it personal.

Emosun, I had fun reading your informative posts in the past, before you chose a petty reason to go all high and mighty and start behaving like a total jerkass. Let's do this usenet style: *PLONK*.

Apologies to other posters, but...Christ. With some people it's like you aren't ever allowed to say something that might be wrong without them going ballistic. Perhaps instead I ought to have fired up my LPX system and tried to see whether I could not hear emosun's posts over the sound of that system's fans... :lol:

Instead of apologizing, please either (or both) of you be the bigger forum member and just quit the argument.
