Today I got a big haul of computer parts.
Maybe not big for some, but if I walk in a home with nothing and walk out with 2 large shopping bags and a backpack full of stuff AND a semi-complete system, I'm happy 😁
I haven't really inventarized exactly what I got, but it includes:
-A Slot 1 i820 RIMM board, AGP 4x
-Another motherboard (probably ATX), haven't taken a look yet, he gave it to me and I just took it 😁
-A bag of RIMM stuff (many of those will be those dummy modules)
-A bag of 30p SIMM's (he took out the 16MB modules, but I'm not really in need of those anyway)
-Bag with some SDRAM
-About 10 CPU coolers, including a s423 Zalman cooler 😀
-A lot of cables, including SCSI, 80p IDE, a PS/2 bracket thingy
-Cards, couple AGP, 2 older USB cards, I think 1 EISA NIC
-Couple small harddrives (mostly 4GB and smaller, 1 is a laptop drive 😀, 1 or 2 are SCSI and somewhat under 20GB)
-And 1 almost complete system which has a PCB that has CPU and RAm on a daughterboard that fits in a special ISA+PCI thingy on the motherboard itself. It has I think a 300W AT PSU. The case itself has like over 10 places for expansion cards and has 2 handles to lift the thing.
-And some other thingies.
All for free!!
Particularly the i820 board seems interesting. It's supposedly able to take single RIMM's and even though it has 3 slots, only 2 can be used effectively due to a bug in the i820 chipset.
I will post some pics later, I'm sure some interesting stuff must be amongst all of this.
Edit: As I was on the way to the person giving away all that stuff, a friend of mine needed a temporary computer for internet while his quadcore is in repair. As I only had a P3-1000 I decided that was going to be the one.
But I noticed something odd about it.
It's a s370 i815 board...with an ISA SLOT!
Of course I told him I'll want the board back 🤣!
