paste in socket

Bought a DFI LanParty NF4 SLI-DR on ebay to do a 2005 build, but it was not posting, and all 4 debug leds were glowing red, which seems to mean its stuck on cpu detection. After disassembling the socket 939 with suspicious paste residue, was greeted by this sight: https://i.imgur.com/4f5uKam.jpg …

Re: New sound card project: AWE64 Legacy

I never found out whether complete assembled cards are being sold, were supposed to by april/may of last year, but then as far as I understood they kept being delayed and only bare pcbs being sold... are they still not ready to sell? I've been prepared, waiting patiently to buy one fully assembled …

Re: Far Cry

it is strange that in 2004-2005 nobody talked about it in the forums (I couldn't find anything). 64-bit versions of windows XP and server 2003 came out in April 2005. The first 64-bit AMD Opteron CPUs came out two years earlier in April 2003, but I guess at the time Linux would have been your only …

Re: Far Cry

Is there reverb in this level on the Sound Blaster Audigy? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wShr1XqP6o Yes, thats exactly where I compared, since I remembered theres plenty of different reverb types in those first few halls and corridors at the start of the level. I could notice no difference …

Re: Far Cry

Serious Sam EAX certainly worked in at least one version of DSOAL I tested a while ago. Compared against an Audigy, it sounded identical. I don't know if newer versions break compatibility or anything, I don't really use DSOAL since I have real hardware

Re: 1997 Dream PC project

https://i.imgur.com/3Nw1uBA.jpg https://i.imgur.com/cdI3Kwt.jpg Finally complete. Ended up being just a Win95 OSR2.1 with Microsoft Plus! machine. Couldn't find video drivers for Win NT4. OS/2 Warp 4 didn't like the hdd being 8.4gb, seems like it would only install on max of 8gb hdd, so it barelly …

Re: 1997 Dream PC project

Vortex 2 is hard to find and usually pricy, but Vortex 1 (au8820) is really not that much of a problem to obtain yet, I see two for sale locally right now for next to nothing. And thats the card here, as its from 1997, vortex 2 is from late 98 (have one too, luckily). I installed win95 osr2.1, and …

Re: 1997 Dream PC project

https://i.imgur.com/oMQU8td.jpg Progress report, I've been very busy with work past few days so things are going slow, I was able to test the Matrox Mystique 220 with Final Reality to confirm the card works fine, but is indeed inferior to the Rendition Verite V2200, so I'll leave the V2200. I'm …

Re: 1997 Dream PC project

Was gonna talk about this when I finish the machine (so busy with work these days). I'd like to try out all 1997 pc games on it first and foremost, but I'm not sure that I have a complete list. Here's the ones I can find having 1997 release dates online: Age of Empires Blade Runner Blood Carmageddon …

1997 Dream PC project

I've been wanting to build something a bit older for a while now, and I noticed I have just about enough 1997 components to put together a nice machine. To start, I have this Shuttle HOT-569A motherboard with the 430TX chipset, it's not the best of the year or anything like that, but should do for a …
