    No, I don't have one. Send me a PM if you have one to sell. :thumbup:


    Might do an unboxing video of the Voodoo3.

    Unfortunately I think I have only three, one in use and two NIB. If I find another I'll let you know.

    Very nice haul!

    Not much from me, I did get some cheap chipset replacement heatsinks from eBay with adhesive. Hope they work out, I got a nice SIS chipset P4 board recently with missing heatsink. Works but I rather cool it properly.

    Nice pickup :thumbup:


    I ordered one of these to see how it goes capturing a VGA source to a HDMI capture card.

    I'm not sure, there are a few sticks that I don't know anything about.
    (the top left, and the middle row second from the top)

    Hopefully someone knows what they are from? :confused:

    Laptop ram, I've seen them before, that tiny one in the top left is a microdimm used in some very tiny Sony Vaio laptops out of Japan.

    My retro-cave is almost complete, and I've fired up my C64 at last. (This explains my absence here for a while!)
    Got my Linux box running, and networking is up!!

    Rummaging through my boxes, I came across this lovely creature. I know it worked when I put it away.. got nothing to test it with now :(

    Anyone know what it is :D

    it's an AMD something.

    is it an 8086?

    It's certainly looks like a very old pc mobo :thumbup:

    CBM = commodore business machines.. no idea what it is out of though. Not enough chunky custom chips to be an Amiga.

    come on I didn't even have to google that hard....!!

    Looks like the processor is missing from under the molex adapter top left of the board.

    IBM 6323560 XM 64-256KB System Board 8-Bit ISA 6323362 from an XT 8088 286 PC

    Looks like an IBM XT 5160 board, without co-processor ;) 256kb RAM, seeing as all banks are filled.

    That's the socket for an 8087 maths coprocessor. The 8088 is there.

    Yup. It was part of Winter's PC in about 1986, along with a 20Meg 5/14" FULL HEIGHT rodime stepper hard disk. Everthing else has disappeared, except the sysplanar (That's IBMspeak for motherboard). I have an MDA video card, a herculese monochrome card, a couple of multi I/O and MFM controller cards - and that's about it :- not even an XT keyboard. Got a long way to go with this one.
