Kind of a shame to sell this ram but I'm just not bothering with DDR1 based projects at this point 

 

maybe i can give it back to corsair in exchange for some DDR3 lol

they indicate post codes on most motherboards during startup, then once an OS is loaded they switch to indicate usage

though there is some software you can use to make them do whatever, some people used them as graphical equalizers for music

It arrived

Needed just a little bit of clean up 

10/10 would bang

 

Does it still work? Is it the die-shrunk version of G92?

Most g92 chips are on the 65 nm process, but g92b chips are built on the 55 nm process.

Looks like the original g92.

Looks like it was used in the 9800 GTX+ and 9800 GT but interestingly, not on the much hotter 9800 GX2.

Here i am again, been a long time, have a few more things to show off.

 

Not the oldest thing, but old now for me :P. My old 5960x hehe.

Then 2 old cards that need no explaining.

Nvidia-8800GT-with-cooler.thumb.JPG.1ad741bfee7664c9918d21d0ff343976.JPG

 

The 8800GT was LOUD AF, and even that is a HUGE understatement. This cooler ramps up to the max when you turn it on and it won't stop until you turn ur pc off. Which you would do within a minute if it was released today :P. I replaced the cooler with a zalman VF1000, which you will see below.

 

Now for the parts that aren't that obvious. First a PowerColor Radeon 3650 AGP 512MB DDR2. It's cooler was dead when i found it. Had the old Zalman VF-1000 lying around from the 8800GT days so i slapped it on and it worked :D.

So in my last post from long long ago i mentioned i had a 2nd radeon 9700pro, i tracked it down recently and put a zalman cooler on it (original fan was dead.... happens a lot with these old AGP cards). Its a HiS Excalibur 9700pro maybe, but i remember it having different heatsinks on it.

My old Raptor collection. Bottom left is a 36GB Raptor i saved from certain death. Next to it are 2 150GB raptors i bought new when i bought my q6600 pretty much 10 years ago now (might be more.... im getting old). Above them are 3 1TB raptors i bought new 6 or 7 years ago. They always ran in RAID-0 and were my game recording array. All 6 are still in perfect working condition.

I also fixed the old Dual P3 1Ghz machine i posted before, it had 3 blown caps on it which caused it to crash after 30 seconds or so of intense gaming. It is now stable as ever and has gone through multiple sessions of several hours of gaming without crashing :D. Can't find the after pictures atm. Prepare yourself for cringe when i post it.... i'm terrible at soldering lol.
