Was on the way to the shops and came across a junk pile, with seven PCs! Sadly - all empty. I did find some goodies in the pile though. It was admittedly a bit tough carrying a box of sound cards and a bag full of miscellaneous bits around through the supermarket, but that's life when you walk to the shops and don't want to leave things there and hope they'll be there on the way back. Excuse the bad quality late night photos.
First case that excited me. Only has the PSU & FDD inside. Maybe the ODD too? No Motherboard though.
Another Celeron beige box with no motherboard.
A bag of 5.25" to 3.5" bay adapters and 5.25" covers.
A box of sound cards! Score!
Anyway, shopping happened and I squeezed it all into my backpack alongside the bay covers and adapters. Let's take a closer look at what I brought back.
Nothing special. Five 5.25" to 3.5" adapters which can be quite handy. A few 5.25" covers, a bunch of PCI brackets and two FDDs which were filled with dirt and leaves, so I'll likely junk them again. They're too new to be worth cleaning up, imo.
The PCI cards are boring, but free AWE64 and XWave w/ YMF724 cards? I can't argue with that!!
Overall, the box had the following for those interested:
- 1 x CT4830 - Sound Blaster Live! Value
- 1 x CT4780 - Sound Blaster Live! Value
- 1 x CT4520 - Sound Blaster AWE64 Value
- 1 x Labway XWave 5000
- 9 x CT4810 - Sound Blaster PCI
- 1 x CT4750 - Sound Blaster PCI 128
- 1 x Unknown ESS chipset card.
Finally, the HP case. I liked it, so I brought it back. I haven't opened it yet since it's late, but if it will fit a regular mATX board I'll be keeping it around.
I have the feeling based on what was in the pile, it was from a scrapper. Could be wrong but I can't imagine much else.
