Great color BTW, my fav for the old school muscle cars.
Why the US of course.

Don't have any pics to share and in reality, it's in less than pristine shape, definitely not what it used to be.
I've had it since high-school and after pulling the original 351 Cleveland out, stuffed this in using my brother's 70 Torino Cobra (429 SCJ) as the template to set it up. That was done not long after high school and it's been years ago now since it was done.

Still looking foward to the day I can go through it, redo it top to bottom and start driving it occasionally again. Need to repaint, rebuild the engine and trans, really more or less a full-on restoration.
Yes it really loves gasoline. 6mpg on a good day but it's a Fast 6mpg.

See guys? There's more than one way to go fast.

Speaking of such things, I'd love to try out a Venus core with my setup one day.

wooot my MSI board just fired up. I found a trace near the cpu socket that was broken and I got my dad to solder it up. Don;t really know how we managed it considering its so small and the soldering iron was definitely far from a fine point. Initially the card in the first pci-e slot didn't work, but I placed it in the second one and my monitor turned on. I thought I had already switched it so...hmm. In any case I have another motherboard (2 of 4 working)

Edit: just placed my 6600gt in the first slot and that one works now as well...odd but sickkk

Are you speaking of CPU or Mobo? I use to make the mistake of calling the Venus mobo a Venice and blitz corrected me on that because I kept confusing him w/my post's. Venus = Mobo & Venice = CPU

Hey Kryton. I'd prolly be able to hear you coming down the block w/your big block by the sound of things. Huh? No worries I'd be staring in shock while being amazmeed by any car w/the ability to do donuts in my court. I can't afford the tires other wise I would prolly do it in my cars but in the industrial zones after hours in the parking lots like they do in southern cali near the auto auctions by Hwy 15 & HWY 10 in Miraloma.

Nah, N2G, not holding out on anyone. I got that sometime early last year, when I was struck with DFI-mania for the first time. Found that honey on eBay, as a matter of fact. Paid a reasonable price for it. Just over a hundred American, as I recall.

I've been lucky, I guess, in my adventures acquiring hardware from eBay. Not one has been broken, and quite a few times I've gotten sealed-in-box hardware. This SLI-DR I'm tuning right now, in fact, was BNIB.

The board I've been most unlucky with is my CFX3200. My brother-in-law alerted me to a buddy of his who ran his at stock for the time had owned it. He had a few troubles with it (freezes and lockups) that he couldn't explain or troubleshoot, so he told my brother-in-law that he was selling it. My brother-in-law, in turn, told me about it. Fifty bucks later, I had my first CFX3200.

(Some days, though, I wish I could have my money back. )

Then there was the time my neighbor sold me an SLI-DR for $20.00. Used, but in very good shape.

Someone in this group owns that board now...

joe you sure do seem to have the gift of ebay on your side. I especially like how you wish you had your money back for the CFX3200 I have felt like that more then once.

Jrs, that is awesome man. That is really cool that your Dad was able to fix the board. I always love repairing damaged/failed hardware. Makes everything worth wild

Please welcome our newest member, maj1stic!

I hope you enjoy your stay with us.

Update: These Crucial Ballistix Tracers are trying my patience. Despite all the testing and the myriad settings changes, I cannot squeeze more than 11MHz from this RAM kit. You ought to see my charts which shows all the changes to the settings; incremental, systematic trial and error seems to be getting me nowhere fast.

On the other hand, I can run these sticks at 2-3-2-5 fairly well. I'm now testing which RAM divider option works best. The bandwidth @ DDR300, I have to say, is pretty pathetic.

Check the ones in my sig rig. Winbond UTT BH-5 (new BH-5 -- not as good as the old stuff, but close) with Brainpower PCB. Unfortunately, I've never had the chance to really push them because I've never owned a board that would put out 3.5 vDIMM. I wouldn't mind sending them your way if you have something to send back my way. Preferably TCCD .

Apparently, the guys over at XS have had a blast with these.

I took these out of my case because I'm shipping my mobo off for a better one (Abit AT8-32X), so I put them back in their retail packaging. Here's a pic.

Venus 146, 148, or anything along those lines. Great OC'ers and wondering what I could get one to do.
