They won't. Only the Tualatin-S (512k L2) versions supported SMP.

Darn. I think I have:

at least two S370 1200 Celeron Tualatins (assumed good)
one assumed working S370 500/66 Mendocino
one working S370 300A/66 Mendocino known to work at 450/100
one broken slot-1 300A/66 Mendocino that used to work at 450/100
one slot-1 P2-233

Two slotkets

and a dual slot-1 board that only can take four "x16" 256M SIMMs, else can only take 128M SIMMs for a max of 512M...

I really don't want to muck with machines that can't take 1GB SDRAM as I run Gentoo on all my machines, hence one of the celeron 1200's is in a single S370 board that has two "x4" 512M SIMMs and a 256M SIMM for 1.25GB.

...and another one concluded... The case isn't the greatest of quality, but its decent...and in good condition. Fine for this build, which isn't too terribly valuable, it's just a strange SMP novelty.

Pics as promised for this goofy little build....

Innards...


CPU's


Butt shot. IO plate with the case fit this motherboard. I am out of blanks for those 2 punched out ports (1 serial, 1 parallel).


Totally awesome POST screen showing both CPU's.


XP would be ok on this, but Win2k is a bit better performance-wise on CPU's this slow.


Up & running.....FF12 as usual.


Specs as follows:
Asus P2L97-DS
2x Celeron 533's
512mb SDRAM (supports 1gb EDO or 512mb SDRAM, I chose the faster option)
Nvidia RIVA TNT2 64mb GPU
Adaptec U2 SCSI Controller
AWE64 Sound
18gb 10k RPM SCSI HDD
Plextor 6Plex SCSI cdrom

Awesome!

Looking at this picture makes me all nostalgic:

You just can beat the minimalistic look on those beige cases.

I see the HDD is also SCA type with one of those SCA->SCSI adapters. That's what I got on the NetServer PC mentioned in my previous posts in this thread. At one point, SCA HDDs were abundant and cheap on eBay. Now, not so much. Still decent performers, too - at least the 10k an 15k ones. Only annoyance is the noise, IMO.

By the way, what PSU did you end up using? Looks decent to say the least.

The PSU is a Morex 250w, originally came with THIS CASE, which I bought new in the mid 90's. It had to be recapped, but is otherwise pretty solid.

I keep a constant vigil for smaller scsi/sca hdd's, 9.1gb drives are super for these builds, as they don't require a lot of storage....and the drives can be had cheap....but yes, their availability is dwindling...

I'm looking for some more 36G SCA disks for a hot swap bay...
I still have a 9.1G UW disk somewhere... I used to run Linux off of it but it's gotten too small for a modern setup

Ha! First time I hear anyone mention this brand on here.

I bet it's solid and well-designed inside. I have a 235W Morex PSU myself - was the first PSU I ever picked up from Craigslist. "As-is" condition, of course. I traveled some miles to get it, but it tuned out to be worth it. Just needed a recap and a fan job. Very solid after that. Gonna get around to posting it someday too.

Hmm, looks like I missed that thread. More curious to see more shots of that other case from back in your gaming days - particularly the stickers on the side panels. I have pictures of mine as well - it was a ghetto rig back then. And with a PowMax PSU to top it all off. (Though not the worst of PowMax PSUs)

I think I have a few not in use. 7k RPM and way too loud due to BB spindles. Been sitting for ages, though.
