  1. i don't have pictures of it right now but i have what i believe is an ATI Radeon 2400 XT or ATI Radeon HD 3450 (Dell OEM Units), i really can't tell the difference between the two, i will post a pic of it later

    I finally finished fully upgrading this noice Dell Precision T3400, now it has some pretty decent hardware,it didnt come with a power supply so a got one from a friend who was selling his(it was literally brand new), so far this is what it is packing 


    CPU:Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 @ 2.66GHz

    Ram Corsair 8GB DDR2 Ram @ 800 MHz

    Power Supply: EVGA N1 400 Watt power supply

    Storage: a mere 250 gb hard  drive for now

    GPU: EVGA GTX 950 (i was brand new never used, it is still under waranty)


    i also went ahead and bought the upgraded cooler for it and my main rig(Precision 390)



    Here's a pic of the insides, i took this pic before i got the GTX 950 for it(gpu in the bottom pic is a xfx 8600 gts), also a little fun fact on picture on the very top if this post, the CPU on the corner of the rig is a Xeon X5355, i just placed that there to make people think that is was the core 2 quad(sneek 100)

      Nice! Just curious, could we see the insides?

  3. This is my Nvidia Geforce 8600 GTS made by XFX, this is the first old graphics card that i bought, and its the one that has started my liking to collect old GPU's, when i got it i looked like if it was left sitting outside for a good while(hence the discoloration of the plastic and the bit of rust on the screws), but that hasn't stopped it, when i went ahead to test it on my test bench it was shorting something out but after i cleaned it thoroughly it worked, to this day it runs like a champ, and its overclockable
  4. Thank you so much for making my day:


  5. Most modern GPU's wont reach full core clock until they are under load.(like a heavy game)
  6. And the gpu doesn't show up in device manager in another computer
  7. Resoldering the pci connection didn't do anything
  8. It is a possibility, one that I hope isn't true
  9. I will try to resolver the pci power plug, but so far I don't have a fine tip for my soldering iron for incase i have to swap something small on the pcb so that will have to wait, as for the rest there is no visible buldgeing capacitors on the board, I have tried cleaning the pcb and the pci bar
  10. If I can't get it to work I probably will use it as paper weight
  11. A gpu baked to a crisp? Now that sounds fun but in all seriousness I would have tried that if I had a mini oven, the reason why I haven't done it with my oven in the kitchen is because when you heat a gpu in a oven it releases fumes that will contaminate the oven and any food that is baked afterwards
  12. what company? if you mean the distributor its an EVGA
  13. i removed the cooler from the card and i placed my finger on the GPU die (while being grounded with an esd bracelet or whatever you call them) and i cant feel any heat from the die or anywhere on the board, which is a bit strange
  14. i normally use GPUz to determine if the card is fake or not but since i cant see anything on screen, i, when i opened up the card and searched up the number on the GPU chip, it was a maxwell architecture GPU, so i guess it could be legit
