I've decided....

Well, I tried setting up the new GX110 and it didn't go so well. First I added the memory I had available and added an extra cooling fan for good measure, and the did the HD transplant.

It wouldn't POST....one long and a couple shorts....memory problem? I know the memory was good, because it came from a good PC....also a GX110, though tower format, and also with a P3-600MHz CPU, etc. And, both were genuine Dell DIMMs...CL2....

Though apparently the catch was they were ECC DIMMs....

Plugging in the non-ECC DIMMS from the GX100 got it boot. Though I didn't really get much further than that...the machine would lock up. Of course, it could be because they were both CL3 DIMMs (even the Dell DIMM wouldn't work). Though I did suspect that it might now work, since we had trouble when upgrading GX110's at work in the past....whenever we used CL3 instead of CL2 it wouldn't work.

Evidently its because of the strange way GX110's are....they have 133MHz FSB CPUs in them, but only use CL2 PC100 memory, rather than PC133 memory. I do have a PC133 DIMM around from a different computer, but it is only a 64MB DIMM...so not going to bother trying it now.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
