Show off your old and retro computer parts

Message added by SansVarnic

Do not quote photos, Thank you.

Also if you’re still interested in having fun with it, In highschool I missed the case and upgraded my gigabit g4 with an aftermarket dual core processor which I believe was 1.4 Ghz and overclockable, I think the kits are still available.

Does it use Socket A? Mine is a 400 MHz PCI graphics model.

Possibly the rarest water block? Cathar's Little River Storm G5 silver version. (Aka that one Australian guy mentioned in LTT's aliexpress watercooling video.) I never got to install it. It took a very long time to finally get the block, and I found my first real job after school with tons of traveling. When the job calmed down, CPU die sizes had grown past what G5 was designed for. 😂

I think I had that one before you, I had one of his early storm blocks.  I got one from Cathar when I was on the overclockers.com forums.

Once I catch up on my homework I'll have an SNES to show you all.

My grandpa was digging through his "storage" room (really the "toss the boxes in because we never use it anymore" room).

I knew about the N64, 'cause me and my cousin played Ocarina of Time on it.

I didn't know about the SNES.

I hope it has Mario World :)

I found A WHOPPING 8MB CF card from '99 lol. For some reason it was on the floor under my desk which certainly has not been here since '99.

I have a 40MB and 2 64MB.

Nothing to read them with yet tho.

I bet this one has some pictures on it, I should grab a reader and give it a try!

 

Found a Sabrent Floppy/Card reader combo that still works, plugged the USB into a board and away we went. Found it had 4 photos of a Cimatti Moped seat from a long time ago. Nothing exciting sadly.

Ok I know this is the retro thread but I got my 6800 and I'm just so excited I had to show it off.

 

I must need an adapter, it doesn't fit in my pcie 3.0 slot very well.

I saw someone online who sawed notches into a PCIe card to get it to fit into an AGP slot...

 

Gore aside, your 6800 looks amazing! Kinda looks like the 7800 GTX you sent me, but dual-slot.

Unfortunately, that's as far back as I have pictures for. My first ever build I did myself was back in high school. It was an Athlon 800mhz slot build in an old tank of a steel case with a 3dfx GPU. Airflow was terrible, thing would crank up over 90c and lock up on the regular. Wish I had pictures.

I can one up you guys or maybe not but I recently got this with a q6600 and 4GB DDR2 has the I/O shield and the sound card as well

 

Those are some nice heatsinks. As much as I like the professional grayscale theme of many motherboards nowadays, I miss when boards would flaunt their copper.

It feels like VRM coolers have regressed. Heat pipes and big fin arrays are very not commen now.

That's mostly because today's VRMs are much more efficient than back then. There's simply no need for as much cooling in the first place.

When you look at the phase count, and the power draw of the CPU (which can be overclocked) that the board can work with...
