Never seen the Netpower UltraFX board before - it's huge! Is it designed to fit into a custom enclosure?

NeTpower has also produced its own workstations - Calisto, Symetra and others. The only pic of NeTpower computer I've found - server codenamed Sparta

I'm also collecting videocards and really love pro cards. These are from my latest acquisitions:

NEC TE4E (NEC's own PEC renderer + GA-400 geometry accelerator)

I bid on this, thinking it was an X850 XT PE but its just the XT. Still a good price! ykFvCNX.jpg

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

Wow! Did you pay extra for all that crap in the heatsink and fan? 😉

I know right? I was honestly hoping to be out bid at $1, again because it isn't the PE version (I will get one eventually)

That said, I might install an Arctic Silencer on it. That was THE heatsink for its time. I had one on my 9600se.

Actually it is one of the best air cooler profiles to date as it pulls the air through the cooler rather than push and dumps the exhaust outside the case. The only problem is that it is high maintenance and is loud beyond that it is wonderful compared to later styles. When I had my x1900xt it actually did a good job keeping the system temps down.

Bought a 915GM Speedster-FA4 for my spare pm 770, didn't expect full win 9x support (speed demon for 9x).

Coughed up $45 and have to sit while it arrives from the UK >.<

Here's the original image. It's exactly the same V5 6000 card

All the wires from the power pigtail down to each individual fan power connector are in EXACTLY the same positions.

No I don't think so, should be one integrated in the cpu as the K6 is derived from this and it is a 586 class cpu.
