Thermaltake made a case or two back in the 2005 or so time frame that had a 1-DIN bay for a car stereo. :D
Edit, Thermaltake Mozart and Sword series was what I was thinking of I think. 2008, here's an article: https://pcper.com/2008/03/thermaltake-swordm-full-tower-case-review-part-1/5/
They're beasts. We been running them 24/7/365 since 2002/2003. In that time period, they've probably only been powered off 3 or 4 times at most, and only have reboots for required engineered software changes that need it. I think the last time some of them were rebooted was 3 or 4 years ago...
Nice rack. Those were used for the Compaq Alpha line of server equipment. I have quite a few at work we just recently tossed, and still have several in service racked up with the matching Alpha DS10's, DS20E's, quorum disk arrays, RAID arrays, etc. Next year we are finally replacing our last...
New setup for at work. My co-workers and I all built mechanical keyboards this week, lol.
YC96 RGB Board
Gateron Brown Switches
PBT Dye-sub Pepsi Keycaps
Mad Catz Rat 3 Mouse
X-ray Pad Thunder 9 Mousepad
I upgraded my Compaq Presario 9232 to 40MB EDO (8MB onboard + 32MB added) in 1996.. I remember it costing several hundred dollars, lol. But hey, the PC and RAM still works today, so I got my money's worth out of it. :D
I don't remember selling prices, but I have seen several of these consoles come up for sale over the past few years. While rare, they still hit the market. There has to be quite a few out there. The NES championship tours hit a lot of cities and there were usually many people playing at the same...
Tarded price, but looks like a pretty mint example, probably the best one I've seen. This is the PC that got them sued by Apple.
With this being an all-ISA system, you'll probably want to stick with DOS 6.22 and Windows 3.1, although Windows 95 will work, but slower. Windows 95 won't be super useful on a DX2/66 -- you'd be better off with a DX4-100 or Pentium for that. You'll likely get under 25fps in Doom / Doom 2 using...
It uses a flat flex-ribbon connection with proprietary connection to a separate board off the motherboard, ultimately connecting via USB or PCMCIA bus.. I forget offhand. I suppose if you had all those components, it would work in any PC.
Here's the drive, basically a NetMD minidisc recorder...
Before, it was listed at $100 + $50 shipping. Likely if restored properly, this PC would fetch about $500 on eBay. (with working Minidisc drive of course) The minidisc drive is around $100 IIRC on ImpactComputers. Lots of Sony and minidisc collectors out there.
I was just pointing out that people should be aware they actually aren't x79 motherboards despite claiming so in the product name, but rather just a socket LGA 2011v1 motherboard that has been built to work with processors that are usually run with the x79/C60x chipsets.
It is hit or miss which...
My co-worker just left Ford last year, and he said the way they design the motorized foldable mirrors is retarded. Instead of using limit switches to detect when the mirror is folded in or out for motor cutoff, they use locked rotor sensing back at the control module that reads the current draw...
Still have my i7 5930k running at 4.5GHz, 1.335v on the core. Been this way since maybe April of 2016? Full custom watercooling setup though with 4x120mm external radiator (EKWB). Runs idle in the 30's, and max load in the low 70's during OCCT/Prime torture tests for 24hrs.
I have several CRT's, just didn't have it out in the picture there since this is connected to my test bench area. I just moved a lot of stuff onto basement shelving units since my computer room work area is cluttered. I did setup an Amiga with CRT though just to the right.
I have the MSX-20, but I know a lot of people were interested in buying it from me.. here's one that just popped up on Mercari. I have no idea the condition of all the parts, but they are pretty rare and I only see maybe one come up for sale per year online. The minidisc drive is usually the...
Today is my weekend for work. (Currently working 84hrs per week)
I decided to get the 486 DX2/66 upgraded and play some Descent with my Virtual IO i-Glasses.
- Intel 486 DX2 66MHz w/ Writeback Cache
- Biostar MB-1433 Motherboard
- 16MB SIMM 60ns RAM
