Get a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz 😀

Thanks for the tip, but I only found 2 on Ebay.com and shipping to Germany is very expensive. This card would cost me ~50€.
A few days ago I bought a NOS Yakumo Solo 1 for 9€ incl. shipping, I will try it first.

vae victis!

I need a better PCI soundcard with green PCB for this PC, suggestions?

Yamaha Waveforce 192XG is what I used for my green-PCB-only V5500 dual P3 build (search for „All things dual“)
If you are patient, you can get these for 20-30€, they are quite rare but not as rare as the Aureal Vortex 2. And they sound great!

I really like the style of your builds, so thank you for sharing!

Rebuild of a old PC from me. The missing side door is a little bit special, I'll do another post on that.

Athlon thunderbirds are expensive at the moment, more so than intel equivalents, anyway i see you certainly took care of any airflow issues! 😀

After cleaning and some work, I use the PC to check my SCSI Hardware. I also want to use it to back up my Atari ST hard drives, I'm curious if it works.

I feel like I've stepped into a parallel universe where everyone is expert at cable managing their PC builds. 😆

Same here. I try my hardest but I never get results like these. My cases look okish but I'd love them to look like these.

Ok the IDE cable management skillz some people have make me feel like an utter and complete noob. I will tear into my builds and make them more presentable at first opportunity...

Identify what you don´t like in your builds and remake the cabling. You will be better build by build.
I used cardboard and braces for trial and error. After i found the best IDE geometry, i used dual sided tape.
