These 30-pin simm modules.

I have seen similar SIMMs in the past, but not like this with a double row xD
Very impressive.

So you are the one that won the eBay auction.

I was kinda wanting them for the lulz.

I can imagine this for sure 🙂

Areca ARC-1160 S-ATA RAID controller.
PCI-X with 16 channels.
At least the great aunt of all RAID controllers.

CPU is an SL9BE Intel 80331 ARM-based I/O processor.
(Had to pry the lens off my SLR to be able to read that...)
512 MB cache memory, so German, it is Swiss.
Not sure what the RJ45 on the backplate was supposed to do.

Also, rather uneventful "Prolink NVG11A" Gf2 MX-400 with Chrontel TV chip and native s-video port. Bent, but unbroken.

Most (if not all) are also double sided. Pic was taken years ago.

Of course these aren't 30p, alas 🤣

But I think HanJammer's modules are the most epic looking ones! 😜

Wtf one of these modules is 16MB 🤣...

Jesus insane server grade memory... Best i have seens here are EDO 72 pin 64MB, my best sticks are 32MB Siemens... And the 128MB Compaq EDO DIMM, but that is another thing, they have prob up to 512MB and maybe even 1GB per module...

Yeah, I have modules like these and similar ones in both SIMM and DIMM form factor. They are pretty common. Some sitting around my desk right now:

I don't have any Tetris blocks to add, but I do have one of these. I feel like all of the nonsense of these huge memory "sticks" is from manufacturers trying to find clever ways to get rid of their old stock of chips. No one will ever see it inside the computer anyways, right?

99p for this Compaq motherboard from, it appears after a lot of searches, a ProLiant ML350 G2. I was kind of hoping the bottom slot was EISA but it turns out it's for the 'Feature Board'. Dual Tualatin capable! Now if I only two Tualatin CPUs. Or even one.

Sadly that bottom slot is brown, not black and is not ISA it is clear... And you wont be able to run dual CPUs as well, unless you find the VRM module... Also if you dont have the proper Compaq PSU the board is useless... Hate that crap, my Compaq AP550 Pro came without the PSU, and is some special 20 pins + 6 pins...

Now when i did look more at that pic the VRM slots are 2 🤣... That prob means the board wont work at all unless there is one VRM installed...

Damn these modules and budget crap from OEMs...

Yeah I know about the VRMs, although they're pretty cheap. I figured the PSU was proprietary at least in part with the extra input header.

Got 2 velociraptors, 500GB each for under 16 euro. Never knew they made them this large. I have two 74GB, two 150's and 2 300's now.

Why not start a collection 😀
