[*]Shuttle HOT-591P (with CPU)

Sigh. Just ordered one of these from ebay a few days ago for just under $200 Canadian.

Very rare to find any useful free hardware around here.

Nearly 200,- CAD??? OMG, I wouldn't pay more then 10,- EUR for a board like this, espacially w/o original packaging and all the other stuff which came with it originally. I own some (dozens?) of these - mostly just the boards w/o additions, unfortunately - don't know exactly, because I own ~150 boards from 286 to LGA775 (and ~5 above).

I was also just lucky, because I'm always interested in what's in the e-waste at work and know the people I have to talk to well for getting a hand on all this stuff. I also had to leave things in the e-waste because I don't have enough space...and we have a whole house to store...

Crazy...

At least I have these VIA MVP3/MVP4 boards (there are some more for sure):

In the ancient scrolls (loose workshop scribbles of yore) I've got mention of an MVP3 board, but no clue what it is, and haven't seen a sign of it yet. Elsewhere though there's also vague mention of a DFI so it might be one of them... I had thought sometime in the early noughties I was of a mind to assemble all super 7 100mhz chipsets and see which one was champ with a fast K6-3.... got Ali and SiS boards for sure.

Well...not really a dumpster find but the colleague who was moving found yet ANOTHER old computer, and well....now I have a 386 for the first time in 10-15 years, and this one is rather neato.

Deskpro 386s/20

So it's a Compaq Deskpro 386s/20, with the original keyboard no-less. He said it was in the original box but it was in the box for a Deskpro 2000 model actually, but the original keyboard was in there, and it had a Modem installed as well at first. I've put my 3-Com EtherLink Plus TP 8/16 in there and a SoundBlaster 16 Value (the last Soundblaster I have left). After some finagling with a severed floppy cable that was causing a short causing it to shut off...lo and behold, the whole thing booted up to the Diagnostic Floppy and works (I'm no slouch with the old Deskpro's, I used to have an original 386 and a 286 back in the 00's, I wish I'd never sold em').

Anyway, this things pretty kick-butt, it's got 10MB of RAM (holy heck that's a lot for a 386), But then when I took the drive bay out to figure out why it was not POSTing, I found out why there was so much RAM in this thing....

486 SLC Upgrade Chip

Turns out it has that press-on thing that I saw on Adrian's Digital Basement awhile back, 🤣. So I guess I got another version of that. I did fix the POST issue by finding out the floppy cable had a bare spot on it and was rubbing on the chassis, so I've covered it with electric tape to protect it. Much to my surprise, when the machine booted up, everything works except the Dallas Clock Chip on the motherboard which needs replaced. No big surprise there. **Update, it's an IBM 486BLX3 25/75 - so yet again I have another DX4 class machine (or maybe it'll act more like a DX2), either way, really cool to have such a rare weirdo on-board**

Dallas Clock Chip That's Dead
File license

That said, I threw those other two cards in there, and tested Y2K compatibilty, and it has no problem being set for 2021. That said, looks like the only thing (so far) it needs is a Dallas Clock chip, and maybe some drive rails and a CD-ROM drive. The HDD is a Connor HDD 874ADC - I'm guessing that's 74MB (well, Type 12 in the BIOS, 72MB since it'd be listing hte unformatted capacity). So yeah, it runs, it's ready to rock some DOS games once the clock chip is replaced, and it's surprisingly quiet for being 30 years old. All the fans are quiet, and the HDD is quiet and spins right up.

Back at work, and what do I see still sitting there? I had made peace with not lifting them, but now I'm tempted.

Just take them, dude. Worst case scenario, you end up throwing them away again. And even then, you might have gotten some DDR2 SODIMMs first.

Well I did. Carried them away in my last bag at the risk of putting my back out (3 laptops plus four days mail). So the haul is: an Acer Aspire 5336, an Acer Aspire 5552, and an Asus A52F. All filthy after two weeks in the elements.

Not a dumpster find, this is something I've had in my collection for a long time. All I can identify is that it is a socket 370 to slot 1 type board. on the top left it says 370 CPU CARD Rev 3.2. On the right siude there are some dip switches and jumpers. No branding, except for the LT on the socket.

this is the only ebay listing that matches what I have: https://www.ebay.com/itm/224762233292?hash=it … CEAAOSwuPtg-cvU

It appears based on that document I have the Shuttle Adapter Socket 370 HOT-C003 rev. 3.2 (according to the pdf also marketed as AZZA 370 CPU Card rev. 3.2)

Unfortunately, I can't find more information on it.

These are actually some mighty good finds, especially the last one. You probably have quite the project in your hands. If you can get any of them working, a slightly faster CPU, more RAM and an SSD can go a long way. It worked fine on my A100, which was also found in similar circumstances.

So it's in german (which I can't read), but based on what I read it only supports celeron CPUs, which funny enough the only socket 370 cpu I have is a 1.4Ghz P3 that I got over a decade ago but never got to use. Though I still don't have a working Slot 1 board either way. Still, good to have documentation on what I have.

Google translate:
ooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Characteristics:
-converts Socket370 to Slot1
-supports PGA Celeron and FC-PGA Coppermine
-suitable for max. 100MHz bus clock, max. 800MHz CPU frequency
-with 2 mounting brackets for universal brackets and SECC brackets
-supports automatic and manual setting of Vcore CPU voltage
-supports dual processing (e.g. 2 Celeron on HOT-649A)
-with jumper for overclocking
ooooooooooooooooooooooooo
The cpu that you describe is a Tualatin core and will not run on this Coppermine slotket without some modifications.

The text indicates that 800MHz is maximum but that is likely what the Shuttle people found safe for their customers. There is no reason why it would not run 1.1GHz /100 Coppermines on a motherboard with adequate VRM.
Also, the jumpers JC1 and JC2 for 'Auto' and 'Overclocking' will likely function normally with fsb 133MHz Coppermines too.

PS. As mentioned above:

Recent Craigslist free section scores: A Hiper Type M 730 watt power supply that I haven't yet tested, though it powers on with a paper clip. https://www.newegg.com/hiper-type-m-hpu-4m730 … N82E16817128008

But my score this evening was a good one: an Asus Z87-K motherboard with 8 gigs of HyperX DDR3, an i5 4670K, an R9 280X, and a Thermaltake case. With a test install of Windows 10, so far everything is working well.
Edit: sadly, the video card locked up just barely into a run of 3D Mark. I pulled it out and cleaned it, lubed the fans, and reapplied thermal paste, but now I get no display unless I use the onboard video. Ah well, easy come, easy go. I didn't expect it (the video card) to work at all as the Thermaltake case has a handle on the top, and the video card was stuck in the gap between the handle and the case when I picked this stuff up.

did they work? I'm amazed by how robust some electronics can be even after sitting outside for a while

then conversely how fragile they can be at time too

I stuck them in a bag with some dessicant. Haven't had time to work on them yet.
