Those are 775 Pentium 4 and Northwood are socket 478, cannot interchange. Possibly early Core2 stuff depending on chipset.

 

Nope, 915 chipset. Prescott P4 only. See if you can undervolt.

Oh, I didn't know which socket Northwood used. It runs fine and after changing the termal paste it isn't all that loud. I don't think it's possible to undervolt. Also for some reason HWiNFO show only the HDD temp, I haven't tried with a different program since I'm too busy these days and haven't had time to do anything with this laptop.

I just grab this from my work (from a machine that was to old to be keeped). This is a lenovo thinkstation S20 motherboard. It has a 2 core Xeon in it which i rapidly replace with a Xeon X5690 6core to make myself a NAS. I forget to pick the Thermal sensor so i grab an other one and it worked perfectly.

I just went through my part collection and got rid of all my really old stuff, but I did keep some stuff that's not that old, but probably still old enough to be considered retro. So now the oldest parts I have are a few Intel CPUs, some RAM, a couple motherboards, and a couple GPUs. My retro collection used to be a lot bigger and use to contain some way older parts.

I found this system on a friends curb 

cpu amd athlon 2  x2 250 @ 3000mhz

motherboard asus m4a785-m

ram corsair xms2 4,096 mb about 4 gigs 

and it had a blueray drive

the hdd was from one of my old intel computers (need help to take a intel to amd)

the thermaltake tr2-430w power supply that was in there was dead when I got it 

so I put a power supply that was from a lenovo prebuilt 

the wifi card is from the same lenovo prebuilt 

also planning to run two cd drives one bluray other dvd/cd

the case is a thermaltake lanbox lite doesn't have cable management

 Today I thought we would do something fun and different. This is a topic about showing of all your old pc parts (or old computers). Feel free to post some pics:) It will be fun:D

 

Here's some of mine:

Kingston Hyperx DDR2 2GB 1066MHz

OK kids, your 'old RAM' isn't that old. Here's a 72 pin EDO SIMM, 32 megabytes. Well, this one is down to 24, as 2 of the chips have popped off from the keys and keyring pushing on them. Bonus punch down tool for ethernet connectors. I save a few dead sticks to use for this, and this is my second one - the first one, half the chips popped off and I tossed it. I figure this keychain means I won't forget where my keys are. ?

I've got the specs saved somewhere but this was my first full build in '06. Dual core AMD water cooled. Ddr2 Kingston HyperX and a brand new $800 Gefore 9800 gtx lol

 

I had around $2000 in all of it and decided to build a pc rather than get my first car. Counterstrike obviously takes priority over everything.

 

Edit: this was not my 9800gtx build I believe it was actually my 7900gt card. Forgotten how far back this build went. Remember those little clip on crab led ram coolers lol

oh how cute.  you mean you didn't have to insert your DRAM chips one at a time onto a RAM expansion board?  and if you bent one pin the computer didn't boot?

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!


into trains? here's the model railroad thread!

The way to get the specs for my PC. go to the store. Buy some potatos. boil them and mash them. and stuff that in a focus g with a ssd.

My first Pentium mobo. Ran a P60 overclocked to 66 MHz. My first PC compatible was an Insight 386DX-25 with 4 MB RAM, 100MB HDD, and 3.5" and 5.25" floppies. I had a ton of Intel, Cyrix, and AMD CPUs and mobos between the 386 and this Pentium board.

So, is that an AT keyboard connector? I don't see a serial port, and I'm not sure what that silver riser is for, but I'm going to guess USB 1.0. I see you heavily populated the EDO SIMM slots, and you've got a single SDRAM DIMM slot. 4 ISA vs 3 PCI slots kind of shows how 'transitional' this board was. Oh, and I like the external cache module.

USB on an early pentium mainboard? Unlikely from memory. *Maybe* a PS2 port if that motherboard was slightly non standard AT layout.  As far as serial and parallel went, anything other than riser cards would have been also unlikely.

It exists USB on an early Pentium mainboard.

 

And if you see this picture closer, you will see "USB" on this mainboard :)
