    That's a great price for an MPU-401AT let alone an SCC-1.

    I just took delivery of the SCC-1 & MT-32 with a CT3910 and Roland MCB-1 thrown in as a bonus, all for $150. The seller was a lovely bloke - not a believer in anti static bags but it all looks to be in good condition, and he delivered it personally! A good guy.

    Thanks for posting the link dacow :thumbup:

    when I get some time I would like to diagnose why my ol' school s478 won't consistently POST... what hardware part(s) should I inspect in trying to diagnose?

    I can almost garauntee it isn't the PSU as it is relatively new & has had very little use (like, not even a weeks worth use)

    Caps would be my guess.

    Try lowering the FSB und undervolting and see if the behaviour changes?

    Also the usual diagnostics. Remove variables to try and isolate.

    I'd go with RAM/video not making good contact.

    Photos are of an 848 chipset board from the looks of it since the memory appears to be only single channel, odd.

    Edit: just looked online and it is an 865 (4pdai) just has two memory slots that are dual channel and it seems an ok overclocking board too.

    Hey Guys when did P4 become retro?
    If so I have a heap I'd be happy to part with :p

    I think for me the upper limit for retro would be 370/A

    I don't think there is a set definition :/ or I'm not aware of one anyway! :tongue:

    for me... mmm..

    pre...say 386.... prehistoric (legacy?) :p
    486 - P4/K8 retro
    C2D/Q - old school

    *shrug

    given the context, its not bagging one era out over the other - each started their hobby with PCs at a diff time & are thus nostalgic about platforms in different ways :)

    s478 is where it started for me! :)
