My bare bones windows 95 system with a pod 83 and 32mb of ram goes straight to swap file for basically anything I do 🤣. Unfortunately 32mb is max supported. Unless I am reading system monitor wrong. But it says around 36mb usually. Thankfully I am running a 15k rpm scsi :p

15k rpm scsi... is that period correct 🤣?

i just aquired 2 7200 2gb scsi drives.. they are from 95 (im pretty sure).. could i run them in parallel and get double the speed?.. of course i only have 1 scsi card with one internal connector so i guess id need another card... never had a scsi setup before, so its all new to me

yes, a time traveler delivered it.

You would need a scsi raid card. Not all of them are raid.

Scsi is cool. Especially the old 50 pin stuff.

This is my first scsi build in like 20 years.

By the way, did you have any experience using 3.5" SCSI FDD (for example with TEAC FC-1 SCSI interface board)? I have heard that it is very hard to set them up on a regular home (not industrial) machines.

And please don't ask me why the hell I want to have a SCSI FDD... 😄

Wow, a 233mhz p1. I have a 200mhz p1 and thought that was pretty much the end of the line, since 233mhz is p2 territory. Is there any difference between them, form factors aside?

200 was the end of the line for the original P54CS Pentiums. The 233 is the P55C which are the Pentiums with MMX.

Form factor wise they are still Socket 7, but the standard Desktop versions of the P54CS had a core and IO voltage both at 3.3V (mobile versions could have a core of 3.1 or 2.9V). The P55C chips used a split voltage and needed a motherboard that could supply the lower core voltage which depending on the chip would be 2.2-2.8V.

There are also the Tillamook Pentiums which were mobile-only CPUs that had both 266 and 300Mhz models. Some wizards did do some craziness where they put a Tillamook chip onto an adapter to run on Socket 7 boards.
