Bought this AT Power supply yesterday for 5 EUR. When I looked at it more closely, I realised that it only has connections for the motherboard. No molex or floppy connections. What kind of power supply is this and what computers (motherboards) it is ment for? Is it possible to use it in an "regular" computer?

I'm guessing it powered an industrial ISA backplane -- especially due to the short power switch cable. You can certainly still use it if it is functional. You can add some of your own cables that you need (molex, floppy) by soldering directly to the board, or making an in-line breakout cable.

Well, it powers on, so I asumme it works. I also noticed short power switch cable when I held it in my hands. Thanks for the tip.

if you have enough amps you could make an adapter from a dead mobo AT connector... make sure you are using proper gauge.

Assuming it's in good shape, using a donor set of cables from a dead PSU and a multimeter and soldering iron, you could map out the outputs and make a breakout cable. To be really slick you'd have to find out if someone like Mouser electronics has the other end connector for that big proprietary connector and use it to break out the molex, floppy and AT connections.

Kind of like an ATX-AT adapter.

Made a lowball offer for a VIA Epia 800 (the original Epia with SB Pro compatible sound) which was accepted by the seller. Looking forward to seeing how this thing compares to AMD K6-2+/III+ In terms of performance and flexibility for old games.

I think you mean 16KB rather than 16MB unless I way underestimated what an 8-bit is capable of.

Oops, was tired+drunk yesterday 😵

That definitely was 16kB, not MB. There might be 8b systems out there that somehow manage 16MB, but the ZX81's definitely not one of them.

Finally managed to pick up a ARK based GFX card for a reasonable price.

This one is a Hercules Stingray 64 With the ARK200PV chip. Thinking of putting this into my P166 with Voodoo machine.

imi....where do you have been? 🤣

RAM-day today. Think 50€ is quite OK for this. I see many 30-PIN modules which are not easy to get for cheap...

sweet, I think I have enough ram to stock any system I have, though I only have very few 60ns sticks.

Bad eyes? The very first modules in the picture (top left) are already SIPP. 🤣
