Socket 7 pentium motherboards for my ISA sound card collections.
Will perform better than 486 CPU’s.
Got these really cheap too.
Needed the most ISA slots possible for my ISA card collection.

-Amiga 2000 rev. 6.2 (8372A Agnus, but standard OCS Denise and Kickstart 1.3) with A2091 SCSI controller (no added Fast RAM, unfortunately), a 4 GB SCSI HDD (that it didn't seem to boot from), a Video Toaster card, keyboard (missing the right Alt keycap and tactile sleeve, but functional), tank mouse, and a loaded floppy that turned out to have Workbench 1.3 on it. You bet I was taking that thing home ASAP!


Glad you enjoyed that Amiga. It came from the shop where I worked (ACS Computer and Video) in Atlanta during 1992-1996 era (it should have the sticker). I'm sure I probably sold it back then, and rescued it from the shop "pile of junk" when they finally closed up and moved out in 2010 or so (long long after the Amiga days, but we had a big room in the back full of stuff). It was missing a few parts, but it worked fine.

Bought this bunch from an electronics junk/pawn shop for $30. I need help with some questions regarding what I bought:

Image Image Image
This is the card that got me buying stuff. Notice the 110MHz 12MB memory and Ver.3 PCB. It had some bent legs making contact on one of the chips, and after straightening them slightly, it seems to be working. Made the whole purchase worthwhile IMO.

Image Image Image
I also grabbed a Dimond Monster3D 4MB but it has a missing cap that I think should be a 16V 10uF SMD capacitor and has this very strangely mounted crystal - is this normal? I did not dare try this card yet.

Image Image
Then there was also this Banshee card, which I grabbed but it's also lacking a 16V 10uF SMD capacitor. One of the solder plates is completely gone though, is this fixable?

Image
The least interesting card of the bunch, it appears to be a Dell OEM TNT2 16MB PCI; I bought it because I think it's a nice card to put in my GX110 (Passive cooling, Dell Branded, etc.) alongside the Dell OEM Sound Blaster Live! Value.

Image
I did not own an Opti sound card before and this looked nice, with a clone OPL3. Anyone know much about it?

Yes, the voodoo1 missing cap is a 10uf/16v one and that xtal mounting is normal there is a small sponge under it - you can straighten the cap or leave it like this it does not affect anything

The banshee missing pad is a b*tch though - it seems to go into an internal layer - if it's just a decoupling cap then the card could work just fine without it. Maybe you can scratch at the missing via area, if you are lucky there could be some copper left so you can add a cap - a tantalum 10uf/16v

The missing solder pad on the Banshee can be fixed. It is kind of a pain to do, but entirely possible. I've only done it in IPC training classes and was successful there, but I have not needed to do it yet on anything of value. There are a lot of good YouTube tutorials, or you can download some IPC manuals which are an excellent reference to do it properly.

I ordered an 8k SRAM chip from China and it showed up. It's old, retro, but for my Sega Genesis.

Now I need a decent soldering station( hobby affordable ), lots of practice, and I'm hoping i can find a socket to put this in.

The solder pad fix looks like too much of a pain for a card I already have one more of and am very unlikely to ever use so I will just test it as is and see what happens. Hopefully it is just for decoupling *fingers crossed*

I already sources the replacement cap for the Voodoo 1 though, that ought to prove much easier..

Found on Craigslist for the price of $0. These machines are heavy AF. looks like the dvd model, upgraded to 1gb of ram. Not exactly something I care about (macs in general) but the price was right.

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

bought this for 10 bucks with sempron 2800 and cooler. because i thought this motherboard was the first gaming motherboard i had when i was very young. replaced 5 caps that were blown and when i turned it on.....i see the logo with the " deluxe" version.

the one i has was not deluxe. god damn it
even the boot screen is different with the one i had

so many memories from that time, geforce3, geforce4 ,radeon9800pro

About 20 kgs of Mac :lol: . If it makes funny noises at the start-up chime (or has trouble with power), check the power supply and motherboard for bad caps.

First post in this thread for me.

Image

Hybrid 386/486 SiS461 Full-length Isa SBC by Macrotek Inc.
Model written on board: Vertex M1
L2 Cache:256kb

Cpu and Cache jumper settings written on the back, unfortunately the I/O jumper settings are missing and Macrotek does not exist anymore evens if their website is still up and running. It's in very good conditions, almost like new, if not for a pcb corner which got damaged in the shipping.
Still nice for 35 euros.

No idea what to expect in it, or what the exact model is for that matter. Anyone familiar with this case and generation of Compaqs?



Common Windows 2000 machine from early 2000's. Probably bad/swollen caps...

I bought an IBM 300PL a while ago, turned out to be dead. Today I stripped it and was pleased to find it had a 6GB HDD! I was expecting much bigger. This will be useful for my DOS projects. HDD Tune benchmarked and health checked out fine.
