Representing 20 years of PC development in one go...

Postby Carcenomy on Sun Apr 03, 2011 12:01 pm

I cleaned my shed out yesterday, there was stuff everywhere and I couldn't get around my project car to do any work on it. The biggest problem I had was my stash of old motherboards and expansion cards, I had nowhere suitable to put them, so we decided on a 'vertical storage system'...

Represents everything from a 286-12MHz board right through to an Intel G33 LGA775 board. 80% of them are still functional and could be pulled down if required. Lemme know what you think :)

eisa on Trademe. A lasting reminder of a Compaq fetish when I was younger.

Decorative as well as functional.

Looks like a chip on the old block.

Get a few extra components and some storage up there and you could have a render wall ;-)

Hah, yeah that was discussed at the time... perhaps at another stage we'll look at 'livening' the wall up. Would be a long and slow process, as we'd need to check each board on a case-by-case basis to determine what's usable.
