Whose ready for some old school?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
How about some Pentium 4 action?
Or even better... the classic MSI 945P Neo Platinum Motherboard?

Even though it is a LGA775 Motherboard it only supports singlecore CPUS(and hyperthreading).
I recently got my hands on one >biggrin.gif
It was just lying in the garage of one of my buddies so i decided to snag it from him. There are a FEW problems with it. First off it has a Cap that was RIPPED off, and it has a single bulged Cap.

The missing Cap is by the 2 PCIe 1x slots so im not too worried about it failing to boot because of that.

The processor of today will be a Pentium 4 630. Clocked at 3Ghz with Hyperthreading, its a beast of the past, well ancient past tongue.gif

Also being used will be 2 Gb DDR2 Ram. Old stuff huh? hard to get unless you know where to look *cough*OCN*cough*

But enough with my rambling. Why not have some fun? smile.gif

First off we want to make sure our CPU is supported.

Yup, there it is.
Next we want to make sure we have all the required items for a boot. CPU, RAM, Mobo obviously, and a GPU. In this case i am going to use my GTS 450.

For those who do not remember the Platinum here she is

More to come as i put her together.

Honestly i do not know if it will even boot. Lets find out.

So. it will not power on when I have the leads from the missing Cap connected together but will power on when they are disconnect. but not boot.

I dont have any of the Cap that is missing. Its the one beside the two PCIe 1x slots to the left.
Any ideas?

It's a can cap..see if you can get some numbers and scavenge one from a wrecked board or something.
