My late 90s build, in the day 90s, I had all of about $100 and wanted a new machine... I found this board at a closeout warehouse, I think it's right name is an Octek Rhino 20+ ATX format but AT power too, 430TX, but nothing much above a 12 gets many mentions on the web, maybe they were going tits up as they were releasing the thing. So for rather few dollars I get it... and a K6 to put on it, get the low voltage K6 says the interwebs, the 3.2 will fry your board, hokay, one "low voltage" K6... somehow I thought I was ordering a 233.. but I got a 266, two point FOUR volt chomper, which was barely just released, AMD had this kind of thing for flooding the channel THEN announcing the CPU.. oh buggerbuggerbugger I done screwed up, but wait.. there's a 2.4V setting, and the "reserved" jumper unlocks the higher multipliers, woohoo, so I get the CPU installed, along with 2x16 SIMMS and a clunky 1.6GB drive from a 486 box, and it boots, yay! ... hey this things pretty cool temperature wise, maybe I'll try 75Mhz.. 300Mhz, runs perfect... run that a week... hmm there's an 83 setting... 333 yay, feels like I'm flying in the stratosphere now because 400Mhz CPUs ain't been out long, and I'm 80% there on $100... be nice if I had some decent graphics though, patience..... OMG there's a killer deal on a Voodoo3 at outpost dot com, snarf. However, this Voodoo no likey 41.5Mhz PCI, down goes the clock to 300... well this sucks, I'm only getting 113% of what I paid for instead of 125%... oh, holy cow, 400Mhz K6 TWO are under $50 now, gotta have me one... again wonder if I've screwed up... then figure out that the reserved jumper has to come off again to get 6x on 2x... K6Twoooooo powahhhh... and yup, runs nice, bang it up to 75 bus and it runs nicerer... four fiddy... yah, backed up the voodoo3 nicely... was playing new released demos at decent res.. life was good. ... it got SDRAM and better HDD, fast optical somewhere along the way too, and did me 4 or 5 years I think. I was still running it as 2nd machine when I got an AXP rig. So anyway, bit of a little board that could, even though it wasn't super super seveny, it was super enough for me for the little I had "in" it.
2017: Basement full of ancient PC stuff, starting to go through it. 2021: Still starting, heh, many setbacks. So what's this BitWrangler guy's deal ??? >>> Taming the pile, specs to target?
