I received the Asus P4S800-MX. It looks to be in great condition and has Rubycon and Matsushita caps, so likely a a good sign.
Jesus i finally got the idea what the M stands for on the Panasonic caps with the T on top of them, ofc i forgot that was their original name, guess was too hard for them to write it like Nichicon, Elna, Rubycon, SaNyo does 🤣... As i was thinking what that M stands for on the Panasonic Caps, never got the idea what the M is..

Some Diamond cards.
And a nice Viper Pro:
With a video coprocessor unusually present on the solder side of the PCB:
Ver nice cards u got yourself, also in pristine condition it seems nice for u.
That Diamond Viper Pro is fucking nice to see.. Aside from the later ATi AGP cards with bridge chip on the back, did not see another one like that, but it seems this Viper card does have similar chip on the back doing something.. And it appears some morons decided that it will be good to bend these bottom caps one on the PCI slot and another one too to stick out of the card very "clever" indeed.... 2 of these Diamond cards seems to have some older logo of theirs, and the 3 one is with the one everyone knows...
The oldest Diamond cards i have are these 2....

This Compaq Contura Aero 4/25 with PCMCIA floppy. It works and it's in good shape. Also it has a dead Duracell battery pack which looks fitted with 4 x 18650. This type of battery was introduced in 1994.
TabWorks from Xerox it's the default Windows 3.1 interface. (I like it!!!)
Nice find ! I have the same Compaq but it is Aero 4/33 a bit more powerful.. But the screen is shitty need to up brightness to 100% otherwise cant see shit, and the trackball is dead.. Aside from that is like brand new...

The performance of the WDs is top notch. They are probably single platter and short stroked. Look at that HD Tune graph. Plus 70MB/s for about 75% of the graph. These will fly on a retro system. Tested on a i815EP + Celeron 1000A 1333.

This makes me feel like a HW distributor. 😁
LoL ....... Seems you can upgrade alot of Pentium III, Pentium IV, AthlonXP and 939 systems with these WD... And so many 72 pin SIMM new memory... Jackpot babe !!! New-Old stock is always nice to find...
