  1. Cheap older style uAtx cases

    Well mine came Friday. Whichever idiot preassembled it crushed the front fan connector underneath the fan. My io plate doesn't fit the Mobo properly (not case's fault). And as I suspected the p/s is impossible to secure, again not a problem with the case but on account of it being a very old design I guess. Power switch is very responsive though. Mobo would usually take several hits to start up.

  2. AST Six Pack Plus - is there a way to put the ram at 640K ?

    Disabling the memory on a Six Pack Plus can be done by setting the jumper to indicate zero memory installed. Removing chips is not necessary. Though if doing that, swap the card with a RAM less I/O plus clock card and send the card on to someone with a RAM limited system.
    Does anyone know if you can use 100ns speed chips on the six pak Plus?

Is there an easier way I could do this where maybe I have a switch or something on each machine I could mount in front?
    Are you aware that the power switch on AT does exactly that? Yes, I mean the front switch, not the one on the back. It will completely

  4. More Versa Work.....

    Just got the Ultralite in, I got a REAL basketcase, lol. Rusty oscillator, looks like water damage, ticks when the battery is installed, no status on the LCD display, LCD panel thrashed but control boards good, AC Adapter is down for the count as well, and the plastic is cracked. When they said "for parts" they were not kidding. Managed to use a few parts to fix the M/75 I just got.

    The M/75 was also a bit of a basketcase - overpaid. But the chassis on this one is flawless ...

  5. Courier Woes - why I'm holding off on my rebuild/flip idea

    USPS up until now has been very reliable, so I'm a bit ticked off....

    Ordered M/75 on the 8th, was "Out for Delivery" on the 15th, then turned up at a 6:41pm as "Ready for Pickup" at our Post Office. No slip, no note in the tracking - nothing. Weird since our regular carrier comes by as late as 9:10pm to deliver mail and parcels.
