OH NO!!! Another Funny Motherboard to list!!!!

Postby sirrushx » Thu Dec 01, 2011 11:28 am

:roll: Here we go again ,I must be nuts!!!!!!! Looking at Legacy nerd stuff to annoy my self,,,,,,


While perusing my favorite used computer/electronic store the other day,

I stumbled upon a HUGE serVer Mobo.



It is a DELL , Has 4 (count ,em ) Pentium 3 XEON Processors & a Xlink Chip& a Large socket <very much UNLIKE simms or Sdram> for memory module.

And 2 80 pin scsi sockets & 6 pci slots{best to memory }.


The pn is ??? DELL -DP/N D53XH T-20400 _ 081 _ 083HV c/o us

THE H I listed is Very Possibly a W <it looks like a Chinese version of W>.



Any help with this thing would be great ,



Regards ,Stu

well...it's a server board, so it's pretty much intended to be a server.

you could run what you want on it - but it's simply going to operate most efficiently as a server.

I do not believe there are too many windows OS's that would run on such a system without hiccups of some sort or another.. Linux might be a bit more compatible but you might run into the same issue(s) with certain versions..

Certain OS'es are simply not designed for server environments and thus are not compatible with chipsets, etc.

I would probably install Linux or Windows Server 2000 (supports 4 cpus), perhaps 2003.
Anything else would be too much for it.
