It's what I get in 90% of such mystery boxes 🤣 Maybe it's just my luck..

There was the one time I opened up such a box to find a Tomato Celeron system with a Voodoo 3 and AWE64 Gold though, so you never know.

I hope you get whatever awesome hardware you hope it has though.

I hope it's an i7 8700K!

Given the choice between that and a working NexGen system with an AdLib Gold and a GUS Extreme and a 4MB VLB VGA (S3 Trio or ATi Mach64), I'd probably take the latter. I wish 😜

Gigabyte GA-5SMM motherboard with a Rise MP65RPAPG5-ES (mP6 PR333 engineering sample). The mobo/cpu combo posted fine but the bios reports the cpu as a mP6 PR233.

I just had too... 😊

The bus speed and/or multiplier is probably just set wrong for the CPU.

Love it when vintage hardware comes with the original receipts.

Today I just couldn't resist to buy this NOS AT case (sellers photo):

I just sold a complete system with this exact case a few days ago, but it was badly yellowed and I found the build quality to be too cheap to meet my expectations.
Now the build quality of this new one will still be crap, but hey, NOS, including power supply, for 25€ shipped. That's just too good to let it pass.
I'm not quite sure what to do with it yet, but I think it's going to be home to another midrange Super Socket 7 system. Another option would be to use it for an AOpen AP5S Socket 7 board that I've had for like 20 years now and that is patiently sitting in its box, waiting to be brought back to life 😀

is not an atx case with an at backplate?

Yeah, you might want to hang on to that tasty ALR heatsink. Actually have never seen one of those in my hunting.

I removed it, because glue was old. There was an 486 without SX/DX markings from 1989 😀 I'll keep the heatsink, but i want to test the CPU first and i can't do that with heatsink because it could short something on the motherboard.

Under the heatsink? I can read 486DX-33 on that CPU through the hole in the heatsink even on your tiny picture.

Yeah, keep that heatsink intact. Someone who collects ALR gear will appreciate that. Try to make sure the decal/text doesn't get any more damage to it. Just my two cents.

Just look, right CPU is the ALR one.
EDIT: also no trademark

Maybe the ALR systems had their own heatsink and CPU, perhaps?

Artex, don't know how the heck you found a Monster 3D boxed with all the "trimmings" but it gives me hope!

You know that giant black hole chinese scientists had found a couple weeks ago? That's Artex. The retro hardware simply can't excape his gravity.

That is a big thing. I bought and sold all manner of vintage parts over the years and I know how having patience will alow you to get some nice parts if your not picky on witch parts.
