Re: Hello darkness my old friend

I like the concept of the Sonata 3 case but what is the issues with this? I'm not fan of front doors. Second, also liked the metal rails instead of plastic, I have not seen modern case come with this? Cheers, Howdy fellow Canadian! Like you I was not a fan of the front door, the rails are a nice …

Re: ATI 3D Rage II

I think those pins are for a video RAM upgrade board. Makes sense, they are right above and below the onboard memory circuits. My guess is they are meant for 2 MB boards to upgrade to 4 MB. I don't think any of these had more than 4 MB from the factory. I stand corrected, they came with 4MB from …

ATI 3D Rage II

Hey all, I have an ATI 3D Rage II video card here, and I was wondering what the parallel sets of 54 pin headers is for. The only reference I can find online is on Wikipedia where there is a photo of an addon board called the Vertex M1. Does anyone have any information about the Vertex M1, what it's …

Re: Hello darkness my old friend

*** Update *** I wasn't satisfied with using an Sonata 3 case, so I took to the task of scouring the internet again once more for something reasonably priced. Then I remembered that there are proxy bidding services for Japanese auction sites, which I had used before to find some vintage Alpine car …

Re: Hello darkness my old friend

Nice build yeh the going ebay price for 1Ghz 100Mhz FSB P3's has been overpriced for a few years now :( Like the soundcard choices, the ZS is my goto for 9x builds and AWE64 is a good match for a P3, not like you'll need that 2nd ISA slot anyway. and who doesn't love v2 in SLI! Your just missing …

Hello darkness my old friend

Well, it's been a hot minute since my last post which covered two iterations of a build that ultimately went nowhere. Every motherboard/cpu combo I tried either didn't work or was incomplete (such as the p4 Intel board supposedly new in box from Russia) was missing the retention brackets for the …

Re: Socket 423 P4 RIMM job (updated)

Y'all are absolutely correct, and it's exactly why I decided on this specific build - just the sheer rarity of a system like this, most folks usually go the DDR route and socket 478/XP when talking about P4's or stick to P3 based systems for '98 builds. If built back in the day, this system likely …

Socket 423 P4 RIMM job

I'll just state up front that I'm basically a grey beard. Not the oldest, I suppose but I modified my first PC in 1992 at the age of 10, and built my first custom PC in 1996 during junior high school. This build represents a vision of the ultimate PC I wanted during my high school years circa 1999- …
