IBM Aptiva

Postby pfrcom » Mon May 16, 2016 10:02 pm

To complement Shane's For Sale thread ;) , here's my Aptiva retro hot rod

Motherboard replaced with recapped Albatron KM18G Pro using Barton 2800

Quite a squeezy fit, couldn't fit HDD in usual place, had to go beneath ODD - FDD still in standard bracket though

Nice build! Total sleeper, down to the 'Designed for Windows 98' sticker ;) what's the onboard vid like? any plans to add standalone AGP?

Quite adequate for me, not a gamer

Probably not, same reason

Although I'm currently eying off a tiny Socket1155 board I have sitting idle ...
