Default Got the boards today

Most of them were junk, and some of them were really old board with a i486DX-33 on them. I kept two board off the wall though.

One is from a Compaq PC, and houses my AMD K6-II 500, instead of my PII. The other one is a Slot 1 board. It's the Gigabyte GA-BX2000, and it can take up to 133MHZ FSB. This board has 4 RAM slots...the biggest seen so far on those old guys.

I also kept a S462 off the wall, because there's potential. It won't take my AMD Athlon XP 2000+ CPU though and I need a heatsink. I'll getho rig a fan on, if I need to. The slight problem on this one is a slightly bumped capacitor. If the board fails to boot, I'll solder another one...if I have it!

Preety much happy I've upgraded the two towers and the Antec case is taking the other kid. Oh and I need a second hand PSU.

You should see my PC case. I have all these little 80mm fans with velcro all over the place. It's not doing much good because it only pushes the air so much
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
