Not exactly old and not exactly computer hardware, but still related.

Brand new KOTTO LED kit.
Keep in mind that it is somewhat heavy which will impact shipping price.

If someone is interested, i'm giving away a slot 1 motherboard. Not the most practical one to use due to its form factor.

Du to it's form factor, it would need a custom case.
(Arcade cabinet for dos games ?). I can't find a use for it at home.

I can offer shipping to France.

I have a DFI Socket A motherboard with box and materials to giveaway for just shipping cost. However, the box and materials are for an AM75-TC / AM75-EC, but the board itself is an AK74 (not sure how that happened, but that's how it was when I found it). The board is untested but looks to be in good condition. Located in NC, USA. Please PM me if interested. Actually I can't do PMs yet, so it will have to be a reply to this thread. (I'll update this post once it is gone.)

I am interested in this motherboard. I have no Socket A motherboards in my collection, and would like to give this one a try. I like that it has an ISA slot. 😀

Very good. Apparently I can't do PMs yet, not sure if others can PM me still or if I can't even receive PMs. If you could try sending me a PM with your shipping info and reply here once you've sent the PM. If that doesn't work I'll think of something. Once I get the info I'll try to get you a quote for the shipping cost.

I would take them but got rid of my last old server board last year. Matched pair of 4 ? They worth quite a bit to someone who needs them.

Hate posting a reply and then have to edit it because it made no sense 😁 First computer was an IBM 3270 workstation with CGA monitor. Stuff: https://archive.org/details/@horun

I'm planning on posting a bunch of stuff in here the next few days / weeks. It will all be free provided you pay shipping.

Up first are a couple Logitech mice that need a microswitch replaced. The G9 I have owned since new. I had to remove the rubber coating a few years ago when it turned sticky. All weights included
The other is a G300.

Next is an MSI MS-7528 LGA775 motherboard. It does not power up, probably due to all of the blown capacitors. I do have the I/O panel for it. I can also include a CPU for it if wanted.

Again, free if you pay shipping.

Intel D865GFB motherboard. This was pulled out of an old video surveillance system. I haven't tested this board but the seller said it posted and had pictures to show it.
I have the I/O panel for this board.

It does have some bad caps that will need to be replaced. The current CPU is a Celeron 2Ghz. I can provide a faster CPU if wanted.

That's not a bad board, https://hothardware.com/reviews/intel-d865gbf … d-review?page=1 Dual channel DDR400 and a whole 4% overclock feature... though savvy CPU torturers will find a lower speed 533Mhz FSB part and FID pin/tape it to 800Mhz, or maybe if they have a higher 533 around, test to see if this board implements the unreleased but planned 667Mhz.

Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.

I agree. It looks like a solid P4 board, so long as the caps are replaced.

I might be interested in this, actually. I'm experiencing a bug with one of my late Intel chipset boards and the disk caching DOS driver that I use. If I can reproduce it on this board, I can mail it to the author for study.

I don't have many P4 boards, so I never had a spare one to send him.

I'd like to claim this, since I think I have a good use for it. I can also perform the needed repairs.

Yeah.. I just have way too much stuff to have time to do cap replacements on boards that I don't really need. Decided to post stuff here for free that needs a little bit of work instead of trying to sell it for almost nothing on eBay.

I have a massive number of s478 and LGA775 CPUs as well that I am willing to give away for free. I am only planning on keeping the higher end ones and possibly a few slower ones / a range of them, but I have 10+ of a lot of models from when I was able to get huge lots of them for really cheap.

As Kahenraz seems to have dropped off the face of the planet in regards to the above board, it is now up for grabs again.

I also have some Dell D6000 universal docks up for grabs.
You can see the specs here:
https://www.manuals.ca/dell/d6000/specifications

Dell's site:
https://www.dell.com/support/kbdoc/en-ba/0001 … rsal-dock-d6000

This dock requires at least Windows 7 for the drivers and USB 3.0 or USB-C

Dell also has drivers for Apple for this dock.

The display portion of it is an external USB display adapter. It is not really good for accelerated stuff and is known to have issues with OpenGL from what I am told.

They are nice if you need to add more displays, etc.

I can also provide power adapters with these docks.

Also up for grabs are a bunch of Black 5.25" SATA optical drives. DVD/CD or DVD/CD-RW or DVD-RW/CD-RW.

If anybody actually wants to pay shipping for one or more of these and wants pictures or brand/model numbers I can post those.

Sorry about this. I got very distracted by the move. My workbench is also still in boxes, and I'm not able to do any repairs for a while.

I'm going to have to pass on this for now.
