Default Voodoo 5500 PCI

Sorry for pictures, they came from my dad's camera phone (date is wrong)

Anyways When I booted it up it wasn't getting heat into the heatsinks so I had to force the heatsinks out of the cores than scrap off the Harden thermal past from 2000 (7 years old now). Once I get home to my aunty's than I'll get some good thermal compound and VOLT mod it

Hey cool. I have one of those beasts. Unfortunately, mine's sitting in a box. Maybe one of these days I'll build a retro box for it.

You know, if you put thermal compound in the middle of the cores, then place a bitty drop of super glue on the corners, that will hold the heatsinks to them right nicely. Or you could even use thermal adhesive to re-attach them.

i dont see the point in overvolting it. your not going to be able to play modern games with that even if you OC it.
