So, I decided to build a Windows 95 PC. Not exactly as a retro build either, but a daily driver machine (for some applications, at least). I set out sourcing components for the build. I had decided on a 486 system, but after difficulties finding a suitable AT case, I shelved the 486 parts for a later machine build and settled on something different instead: Octek Rhino 15 Socket 7 AT/ATX Mainboard Cyrix 6x86MX 166MHz Socket 7 Processor 32MB 72-Pin SIMMs Trident PCI Video Adapter 3DFX Voodoo2 3D Video Accelerator 2GB Quantum Fireball HDD 3.5" 1.44MB Sony Floppy Disk Drive 5.25" 1.2MB Teac FD-55GFR Floppy Disk Drive (+1 Spare) AOpen CD-ROM Drive Creative Labs Sound Blaster 16 ISA Sound Card 3Com Etherlink III ISA Network Card AOpen ATX Power Supply ATX Horizontal Desktop Case All set. Time to start assembling. I immediately forgot the screws. The very components that hold the machine together, I completely forgot to source them. So now I'm looking for a supplier within Australia that can supply a couple of 50-packs of M3s and 6-32 UNCs. So, instead I decided to test the components I did manage to source, and what a clusterf- this turned out to be: The Trident PCI Video Card doesn't work. It detects, the machine POSTs, but no video is ever displayed. The 3Com Etherlink III has a broken transceiver bracket. Both Teac FD-55GFR drives have stripped out screw threads - every one, on both sides! So I went hunting for some replacement components yet again, and came across some less desirable parts that should work... S3 PCI Video Accelerator SMC ISA Network Card YE Data 5.25" Floppy Disk Drive Feeling somewhat discouraged about the entire build so far. Perhaps after I source the screws I'll go looking for another set of cards. Or forget the Cyrix machine entirely and return to the Am486 build I'd planned on doing to begin with.
