Well my new 486 Arrived today.

Completely gutted.
PC was packed alright, not amazing but would not have expected this amount of damage after I opened it.

Somehow, after replacing the broken jumpers, bending pins back and crossing my fingers.. It actually boots.

bummer, glad to see it still work though 😀

got to sort out a few more things...

Diamond Stealth VRAM with missing bracket 🙁 and Diamond Stealth 24

miro 20SV S3 Vision968, this one is of significance to me because I got the same one in my 1996 rig way back and now I finally got one again 😀
and another Riva128, these seem to pop up in every other lot I manage to get lately x3
also another V7 Mirage P-64 S3 Vision 864

I bought an AGP 7600GS today which hopefully will bridge the gap between my GeForce 3 ti 200 and more modern PCIE cards, and used for games in the 2003 to 2005 range with a Pentium 4 or something.

Ryzen 3700X | 16GB 3600MHz RAM | Nvidia GeForce 1070ti | 1Tb NVME SSD | Windows 10
Athlon 3200+ @ 3800+ (Venice) | Some Ram | Nvidia GeForce GTX645 / 7950GT
Slot 1 896MHz | 384Mb 112MHz RAM | Nvidia GeForce 3 ti200 | AWE32

It has taken one hell of a shunt to bend thick steel like that!!!
The floppy drive is a right off.
The HDD/floppy cage will need some bending to make it fit again.
The case is cracked and that bend underneath it seems very difficult to correct.
Several jumpers on the motherboard have taken such a hit that they fell to pieces.
The CPU was hit so hard it took the fan off of the heatsink(4 screws!!) and the CPU had even started to lift from the socket.
The soundcard was hit and broke some superficial plastic from the ISA slot.

It took me a while to come to terms with it and slowly take it apart and assess each part.

Somehow, after replacing the broken jumpers, bending pins back and crossing my fingers.. It actually boots.

Once I am over my dissapointment of this damage I will share the insides as there is actually some nice parts inside.

WOW they must have dropped it off the delivery truck. Good to hear the board works.

Hate posting a reply and have to edit it because it made no sense 😁 First computer was an IBM 3270 workstation with CGA monitor. 🤣

That sounds right to me. I use a 7600GS on ASUS P4P800SE 3.00GHz .

Looks pristine, but untested by last owner due to not being able to find a suitable CPU. That's not going to be easy, but challenge accepted 😀
(that's a Socket 413...)

Mmh, PCIX.
What are your plans for the machine?

No PCI-X, that's just regular 64b 5V PCI.

Plans? Get it working, that would be cool enough. Run Win2kRC2 because I can- then install something else because no software for the platform 😜

When I try to Google for it I can't even find a Socket 413. Is this a non-x86 board or something?

Yes. It's a Digital AlphaPC 164LX board, and it accepts AXP21164PC CPUs (400 or 533MHz).

They're not expensive, but very rarely come up for sale. Last one was one on CPU-world for USD 15 last Autumn.

It's called Socket FT1, or BGA413.

Er no, this is definitely for PGA CPUs, not BGA. Also about 14 years older.

I had a feeling it was Alpha. Alpha hardware is still somehow in regular business use so finding it on the secondary market isn't the easiest.

Today's project.

A Radeon 9500 vanilla. It has the L shaped memory chip arrangement on the card.
These can, often times, be soft-modded with the Omega drivers, into a full fat 9700 with all the pipelines unlocked.
This was a success with this card and of course, I removed the stock cooler and that bloody die shim! I had to soak that yellow thermal cement they used in WD40 for quite a while before I could remove the shite. WTF?

Anyway, stuck on one of those cheap Chinesium vga coolers on there. They work a treat and are inexpensive. A vast improvement over stock. I'll stick some ram-sinks on if postie ever brings them.

Cleaned up the new case today. Not too bad now! Going to have to glue the 3.5" drive cover in as the plastic catch has snapped. Need to get a spare floppy out of the loft too. This system happily recognises my IDE-CF with 1gb card in so thats a bonus.
Also attached some of the internals that came with the machine.

The flea markets I go to will be closed for a couple weeks due to the outbreak, but this weekend I still managed to get a few good items that will keep me entertained during that time:

Looks like the younger cousin of an Inwin S500. Is this an actual Inwin case or a clone?

Nice ! Good looking case. I have one of those 30pin to 72pin adapters from back the 90's.

Don't know, I could not find any markings on or in the case.

Good lord man, I hope you're not split on whether to contact the seller for a refund.
