    Anyone still have their old AMD XP's around? What have you done with yours?

    It has been quite a while since I have been doing much overclocking or very active on the forums... I guess after College, starting a career, owning a home and now getting married all that good stuff sorta put a stop to me pouring money into my PC.

    Funny thing is today I was trying to clean out some stuff from my last move as I will be getting married soon and came across the PC listed in my signature which I have not had hooked up in a few years due to the trouble of getting the water cooling going. The power cable for the pump relay is buried in the garage and the antifreeze is looking a bit questionable after all the years. When I found it I asked my self what to do with it and my first thought was.... ok... lets chuck this in the trash!!!!! After a moment I paused and thought of all the thousands in cash I dumped into this PC and the amount of time I spent totally custom wiring everything inside it and all the work I put into it switching out processors / mobo's trying to get the highest clock possible.... as I think back last time I cleaned my garage I already tossed my SLK 800 which was replaced by the current Maze 3 water block, the water block for my TI 2400 and several tornado's.


    Anyone still have their original XP's around? I had quite a few of them.... A 2100 DUT3C that would hit 2.5 gig on air EASY rock stable in prime (currently in parents old computer headed for scrap bin) and quite a few of the Barton 2500's


    Where are your old XP's? Seem so weird to see that after some ebay and google searches this stuff is worth next to nothing....

    5 of em' sitting on the shelf not 2 feet from where I sit collecting dust. I cleaned the garage a lil while back and recycled all my slot-a classic athy's. One still had the "magic fingers" and arctic circle on it. I was looking over my "collection" again the other night.. water blocks.. pumps.. rads.. HS's.. ram.. etc.. motherboards.. controller cards.. cables..all sorts of leftovers. Heck I even still have 20+ fast wide LVD SCSI hard drives in my desk drawer. Might be time to start boxing it up and say goodbye to it.

    I don't have any XP's around that I can think of BUT, I do have a slot A 800Mhz Athlon with a massive 768Mb of memory and 3DFX 3000 video card running Win XP that is still humming right along.
    I don't why I've kept is all this time, I just can't seem to bring myself to throw it out !

    Sold mine to a friend. It's been running off-line for the past years without any issues. Only PC in the house hold that's been giving zero problems...

    I think that PC is fast enough to play UT2004. Think it even includes the original $300 card... Last ATI I had ever bought 9k something...

    Last thing I did with mine, I think, was straighten out the pins with a straight razor after the CPU fan that had become too solidly connected to it over the years unceremoniously ripped it out of a locked socket.

    That was not too long before I upgraded to my current system - it did hold up for several years for me. Now it's sitting in a closet at my girlfriend's mother's place.

    Sold them except one damaged one, which reminds me never to buy another CPU without a heatspreader. Damn trolls gave me a hard time about it though it's a fail troll as as I know.

    Everytime I build a new system, I turn the old one into a Gentoo Linux system. Why you ask? To build a cluster of course. What is a cluster you ask? Well, the systems work together as a team, using aggregate memory and cpu power over the internet to build packages faster ( install programs in the Windows world ). I did have at one time 7 systems working together as a team. LOTS of fun!

    I have one collecting dust in the garage and one that sees occasional use to stream video to a TV.

    Re: Anyone still have their old AMD XP's around? What have you done with yours?

    I once made a Sempron (remember those?) of that era into a key chain. It always got snagged in my pockets though, so I tossed it. I think I still have a Barton 2500 laying around somewhere, and I still have my cpu from my very first build, a Slot A 500mhz Athlon, complete with the "magic fingers" overclocking device still attached to it. Man, looking back now, those were some fun days.

    Re: Anyone still have their old AMD XP's around? What have you done with yours?

    Saw this thread, could not resist. I still h ave a 1700 (?) Palomino lying around. I also have a t.bred rev b sitting on a dead Soltek mobo that needs new caps. I would be tempted on getting those caps fixed if I could, as it was a terrific board. The t bred rev. b replaced the pally (still not sure about the pally number, I'll have to look it up). The t-bred b on that mobo ran solid and cool at just under 2.2GHz, which was pretty fast in early 2003. That was when the addiction to all this stuff really took hold, as that was an awesome upgrade, with memory in sync with the fsb, all running at 333, something like that. Great mobo, the drv5. I liked my Via boards.

    I still have an old 1600 running linux and using it as a file server for music and my pictures. Funny thing is I unlocked and overclocked the cpu like 10 years ago, and folded with 24-7 for 3 years.

    I have one running as a net machine and another running as a file server. Also have enough stuff to put atleast 5 more together. Right off hand I have 2 A7n8x deluxe boards, A Nf7-s board, A epox 8krai pro, and a Soyo kt600 dragon in the closet. About 10 procs with heatsinks. And atleast 5 agp cards. The running ones are 1 Asus A7n8x with a xp 3200+, 2gb pc3200, Radeon 9800 xt, the other is ol' trusty Abit kt7a with a xp 2400+, 1.5 gb pc133, Gainward geforce fx5700.

    Ah, the XP days. That was my first build, 2002. Enthusiast boards were pretty far along relative to boards from earlier days, but the boards now (and the chips) are just so good. But I sure miss the large number of mobo makers. Some real gems among the manufacturers. I was fond of Soltek and Albatron myself.
