I was a bit worried, not only cause a lot of the copper is straight up gone, but because the traces seem to be burned.

That's legitimately impressive damage. And it's just as impressive that it still works.

I am definitely curious as to what the hell could have caused it! It's really intense damage but only in those two very localized areas. The rest of the board was in good shape and very clean.

I've seen this kind of damage before. It looks like one of the previous owners plugged in the AT PSU connectors backwards.

I bit the bullet and bought a Cyrix MediaGX motherboard from ebay. It was 140$ including shipping from the US and inport tax, witch is pretty steap from my point of view. Pretty pissed I had to pay double what the seller was asking (~68$) beacuse of exuberant shipping fees and import tax. Not sure WHY I had to pay import tax on a 23 year old motherboard witch most would consider e-waste, but I wanted it bad since I've had mediaGX CPUs in my collection for years but nothing to test them on, and I've wanted to test out what is practically the fastest 486 platform ever made from the moment I heard bout it's existence.

The board is an ECS P5GX-M:

How did you use the 3 1/2 inch slots with the curved covers? I don't know of any floppy drives that would fit in that opening!

The opening are moulded to accept standard drives. I just built the system earlier on today and this is how it looks with drives.

Two lots arrived today.
One with three power supplies, two ATs and one ATX, the ATs lack ignition switches, I bought a new couple.
: The other batch consists of an ASUS P5N-E SLI MB with Intel CoreDuo2 E6750 CPU and four 1GB DDR2 RAMs, plus a bezel for the cabinet doors (unfortunately not of this MB).
The RAMs are in pairs of different brands, one pair is ADATA the other has ELPIDA chips.

I can't find a bloody ATX power supply locally at all. The last one I picked up for $20 did some weird things (you had to push power 3-4 times before it would actually kick on) and hten I put it into another system where the power supply spat out some smoke and unpleasant smells.

I think I'm just gonna go buy some new ones, they're only $8 more.

Obviously the ATX was included in the lot, I needed the two ATs.
I have to test them and see the voltages if they are ok.
The lot ATX is of poor quality.
The ATs are intended for PC 486, I hope there are no problems, but if they were broken I would be able to fix them (almost certainly).

I'm legitimately stumped about what this sentence means. "Bezel for the cabinet doors (unfortunately not of this MB)"

Can you post a picture of the part you're talking about?

Unfortunately, the translator has translated badly.
In practice it is this:

I am extremely confused about those drive bays 🤔 For example, in regards to the 3,5" ones, previously it looked like there were 2 separate bay covers, but now it looks like it's a single piece that has an opening on top for the floppy drive. Is the whole thing a completely separate piece compared to the original photo?

The second bay cover is also removable. Just Inwin's quality tolerances I guess 😀

This is the internals for anyone who is interested. The top panel is even removeable which is really really handy.

Brand new Eizo FlexScan L557. I bought it because it is beige with VGA and DVI. I plan on using it with my Amiga 2000 when I install the RGB2HDMI using a HDMI to DVI adapter. Maybe I'll get a Zz9000 RTG card at some point.

Have one of these (though mine is black), it's a pretty robust unit, albeit the stand is a bit tricky to adjust (I don't know if it's unique to mine or not but sometimes if I adjust it down, it pops back up on its own).

Proud owner of a Shuttle HOT-555A 430VX motherboard and two wonderful retro laptops, namely a Compaq Armada 1700 [nonfunctional] and a HP Omnibook XE3-GC [fully working :p]

Did you say 486 platform?

I did, but "platform" isn't really the correct term, since the CPUs don't use the 237 pin socket 3. Instead the media gx uses a a 269 pin socket witch is mechanically compatible with socket 7. I guess " 486 architecture" would have been more fitting, as the MediaGX is build around a Cyrix 586 core. 33MHz FSB, 16KB of L1 cache, with clock speeds ranging from 133 to 266MHz.

That is definitely a nice looking case 😀
It's kinda reminiscent to the AOpen H600 series, even though the front bezel has not an identical design. And nice to see a beige case like this one that hasn't yellowed at all.

Been lurking on ebay and other sites trying to score deals, my target is not to spend more than 20-30$ at a time. Some recent additions:

A lot of qty 4 IDE drives and qty 2 3.5" floppy drives. Am I the only person who is completely nuts about case color matching and LED matching?

It was missing a fan but I found and ordered a 30 mm replacement on Amazon, it's really meant for 3d printers or raspberry pi but fits perfectly in the heatsink.

Bought:

BC875PLG:

78U4IsL.jpg?1

CNPS 7000B-Cu:

Yv2vnoP.jpg?1

SL6WG - Intel 3.20GHZ Pentium 4 HT Processor to pair with it (Northwood):

a8sEIzF.jpg?1

I plan on pairing it all with:
GeForce FX 5900 Ultra
Creative Voodoo 2 12MB
Either a Soundblaster Live! 5.1 or a Audigy 2 ZS PCI (I have both on hand but idk what I want to use)
Soundblaster AWE64 ISA

Should make for a decent Windows 98 SE and early XP gamer PC right? I was running a Pentium 3 1ghz (100mhz FSB) Paired with a Geforce 3 Ti500 before this but I was itching for more and this looks like it should fit the bill.

The PCB color does ring a bell. Could be a Leadtek.

Here some semi-random links
https://www.pcwelt.de/produkte/Leadtek-Winfas … Pro-201379.html
Hybrid Leadtek GeForce2 GTS/PRO?

A Leadteck Winfast would be my first guess. Found it by googling GF2 and then seeing which cards came up in the pics search which have a similar PCB color. Didn't find an exact match for your card though.
