Re: Supermicro curse strikes again

Reviving this to attach a relevant but no-longer-available file.

This is the latest X5DAL Bios. No mods. Pulled from a softpedia external mirror (SM no longer lists it, maybe still available on...

Re: Post your system.......

I used to have one... Kerijane gave to me (remember her? :D), and about 6 years ago I gave to Hondaman to use as a HTPC. Slick little system.

Re: Yet another RD workstation build... Socket F Fun!

:smack:

Seems like coolers have gotten expen$ive. Or my luck on ebay is not working.

Also seems like a lot of coolers have gone away from the AMD fan clips and instead bolt on like Intel 775+....

Re: Ratdude's main rig V5.0

Apparently I never updated this thread.

Awhile back the remains of this system (along with a replacement X7DWA-N and an identical case) were built up into a replica of the original build... which...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

From experience, I can tell you that GTX970's do have 1 full DVI port that is Analog-capable (used on a similar system with such a card, run on my test setup which uses my 24" FD Trintron). I also...

Re: OMFG, I have real internet!!

Is 100mbit enough for such? I thought one would want way more for a site the size of BCN.

No static IP though... I've heard rumors that one can get such with an additional monthly fee... but...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

About 5 years ago I curbsided a nearly identical (identical?) unit. About the same size, 720P polaroid with two HDMI's and a DVD player. Bad panel cables (lines on screen), so it's still a boat...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

You end up never being on time. It's not a law in the "you break it, we arrest you" sense. More of a "strong suggestion" and "how the gov't will be keeping time".

It's like with the US flag code,...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

I mostly gave away my gear of that vintage... I do have a recently aquired Pentium 1 MMX system with a dead PCI GPU (old aOpen system, early ATX)... but retro systems haven't been my interest lately.

Yes, it's me. Voodoo 2000 PCI. If I had 20 of them it would be different. I just have the one, still in shrink wrap. Was a gift from a classmate's dad back when I was in HS (part of a van load of...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Glad you found a home for it... what a picky chip. Seems most OEMs didn't want nutcases like us burning down VRMs with fireball chips :poof:

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

I love how people at work laugh at our old M6800's... and I remind them they still fetch $500 on ebay. Not the $2500 they did new, but still respectable for the age.

(Which is why I don't own one...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

I have about 3-5 LCDs spare already (widescreen 20"+), and more older units (5:4) at my parent's house.

If it was $10 or less then I'd be happy to nab it. But $25 for something I don't have a use...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Nope. No haggling, company policy.

I kinda wish they'd price such items like they do furniture (per piece in the corner of the store). I've skipped a lot of stuff due to the weight pricing...
