Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

It might be helpful for you to get a socket 3 interposer module and setup a trimmer on it so that you can have variable 3 to 4 V adjustment on any system. I am not even able to get an unstable system at 66 Mhz and faster than 3-2-2-2 for the L2. Why is there the 18.9 fps vs. 20.0 fps difference in …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

How long did it take you to find the right combination of SRAM modules to work at 1024K, 160 MHz, and 2-1-1-1 timings? And does that particular order of modules matter? I assume it does. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of different brands of 128kx8 modules to try out like you. I have dozens of the …

Re: Noise on pass-through of a Voodoo2 card

But swapping out the PowerColor Voodoo2 card for an STB branded one resolved the noise issue entirely. It is possible that the caps around the switching IC on the STB are better optimised. I haven't yet replaced the switching IC's cap on the PowerColor (ceramic) with the one from the dead Diamond ( …

People too often forget that they are mortal and that death can come at any moment. Best to have a solution in place so your last living thoughts aren't, "oh crap, what about my collection!" Another idea I had for the sale of our junk is to let the buyers pay top dollar, but then donate all the …

When it comes to addiction and impulse control, hold your ground and "Just Say No!" The consequence of giving in drives prices higher, not just for that particular item, but all around. It seems to be spiralling out of control now (but fun to watch!). For those who are in it for profit, they have it …

I think I only paid $20 for my Banshee, but that was 4 years ago. It is entertaining to see how much people are paying for useless technology. I haven't bought anything of significant value for some time now. Now I buy things that I have interest in but also think people will pay silly amounts for …

AMD K6-III+ 550 sells for 530 GBP, that is $729+$14 shipping = $742 USD. https://www.ebay.com/itm/313670712902 18 Sept. 2021 7 bidders and 30 bids total They went for $70 usd on CPU-World earlier this year, so that's a nice 10-fold return on investment. I find this sale one of the more shocking ones …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

It is hard to keep track of what your latest running conditions are. But if my test numbers are correct, running the 12715 run at 5 V is probably similar to a 12702 at 12 V, which is the unit I now have on order. Without the vasoline, do you still get water vapour condensing onto the ceramic surface …

Re: 3 (+3 more) retro battle stations

I am confused about what voltage you are running your TEC1-12715 at. I recall you saying that you use them at 12 V rather than 5 V because, empirically, they appear to work better. But in your statement on page 30, you are quoting the 5V molex connector for the peltier, implying you are now running …
