Complete - lots of photos! My old Vintage Worksttion Rebuild

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 


I decided to rebuild my old workstation.




The Parts


33.6K ISA Modem. This was Fairly high-end when this PC would have been made



ISA Creative Sound Card. Not sure of this model however I know it is Decent



96MB Of ECC RAm 2xDouble Sided 32MB sticks and 2xSinlge sided 16MB sticks



This card was Very good at the time. 1 and 2mb cards were standerded but woooo 4mb.



2GB SCSI-2 Seagate Barracuda. You would suprised how fast this drive is



1/10 Network Card. High end for the day. No 10/100 for this vintage build. Has coxial Network capability



Motherboard. What else is there to say?



Pentium Pro 200mhz and Heatsink and Clip 256K cahce



Pentium Pro GOLD PLATED top



Pentium Pro VRM



Here is a closeup of the motherboards 8 ram slots



Here is a closeup of the dual sockets



Here is a closeup of the expansion slots



Power Supply with a custom 24 pin connector



IDE FLOPPY AND SCSI-2 Cables




The final peice is an air duct that goes over the CPU




Rebuilding Time

Step 1: I put the RAM in place. I fill the lower sockets because its easier (oddly)


Step 2: I install the pentium Pro


Step 3: I install the Vrm and then the heatsink (oddly no thermal compound is needed



Step 4: I install all the expansion cards



Step 5: I put the harddrive in place with its odd mechanism



Step 6: Secured it



Step 7: Add Cd drive



Step 8: Done

Parting Shots

Side



Back



Front with case on



The case is on




MORE INFORMATION
This rig was found at my church. It had been sitting there for years and the IT manager was like take it o it trashed. It was purchased in 1996 with windows 95 and 32mb of RAM. This system is like a space heater (almost like the x2900xt ). Oddly the processor has never had thermal compound on it. The Pentium PRO was a massive leap in design from the Pentium. The Pentium 2 is simply a faster PENTIUM PRO. These 200mhz versions supported up to 6 processors on the FSB and were easly overclocked to 233 or 266mhz. There were 150 166 180 and 200mhz versions with 200mhz been the most popular. There are 256k 512k and 1mb amounts of cache avaliaable on each version


Good Bye Pentium Pro Here's the last shot............
