Make sure you cool it well then at default they run at around 125Mhz core/mem if I recall correctly and not all V31K's used the 5.5 & 54ns SDRAM Some rare cases they have 5ns SGRAM but there are those that have 6ns SGRAM as well.
Just ask for good clear photo's of the product before buying just to justify the ram accurately.
Only the rpice is just stupid sadly I remember back in the day in 1997 that Duke Nukem 3D or Quake was around 27 Dmark or so roughly 20 USD somewhere in that range, the prices of games are stupid these days., even it seems to be the so called new norm.
ION FURY now this is fun it uses the same engine Duke Nukem 3D was made with from 1997
It just looks fantastic!!!! And I bet the gameplay is truly kick rectum
Here a video review of it done by LGR
Hahaha yaaaaaas because it just works leeeeeeeeeeel
But nah I don't want this place get in to issue due to some screenshots from a well known PC Game, here in NL it's legal and it is everywhere else, such things should be left behind imo German or not should not have to matter anymore.
Just picked up the correct CPU for my 3dfx build for cheaps
As you can see it has the correct namecode & stepping:
AXDA2200DKV3C - RIUGA
AMD AthlonXP 2200+ Thoroughbbred-A
All the hardest parts I thankfully have the rest won't be all too complicated
Yea Lifespan is important for me so I thank everyone for participating, this is new to me as I always worked with VIA Apollo KT333 and an AXP 2700+ T-Bred B, the AMD AM761 is new to me, but it's often good to try out something else.
The CPU I found on Ebay the AXP 2200+ T-Bred A Is the CPU I will use, since I do plan to use this system for long term use.
As for the AXP-M 2800+ Barton chip if anyone wants it DM me
Thanks again guys means a lot, VA is by far the best 3dfx community in the EU, you guys just know what you are talking about , packed with knowledge here, which is very resourceful

Well then I Choose to run the AXP 2200+ 1.8Ghz is plenty for my 3dfx gaming needs anyway and if that makes my board live longer I shall just do that instead.
I found the right one MadYoshi I DM'ed you in Discord of it
It has this name & stepping:
AXDA2200DKV3C - RIUGA
I'll just stick with that then. 1.8Ghz is plenty for my 3dfx gaming needs anyway.
Love that V3 3500 result you got 220Mhz rofl, you could try applying 3.5ns or 4ns SDRAM you might be able to reach 230 a 240Mhz, even though the 3dfx 355 Avenger chip could also be limiting your max reachable speed.
Also love that 3dfx Voodoo3 2000 AGP Art on that case, custom case arts are always a pleasure to see
Oh okay all will come good then thanks again I'kll buy that AXP 2400+ that I linked and the CPU Cooler the board has should be fine I think. Eventho if anyone has that Coolermaster X Sweet Dream Cooler I am always interested
So Thoroughbred A & B won't matter then?
the CPU on ebay is a Thoroughbred B btw.
Ohhhh oke many thanks man
Sorry that I am not good with such things :X
So the stepping doesn't matter then , since a friend of mine says it needs to have this stepping and well the AXP 2400+ T-Bred has like 11 different steppings as you see here:
So this one could work then?
It also seems that the CPU Needs to be this exact one:
AXDA2400DKV3C with the Stepping AQXDA
All the AXP 2400's I found are Thoroughbred's, but not sure if they are Thoroughbred A or B so there is that as well.
So maybe the AXP 2200+ might be the safer bet then?
Just updated last post with pics of the cards I am seeking even though the V3 3500C is the card I want most, if anyone can help em find any of these feel free to DM me
Yeah that is the one I am seeking I'll buy that with the CPU on August 24th then after that the 3dfx cards won't be too hard, thanks for all the help so far this is very helpful and all
Well no need for that I Did go for the EPoX EP-8K7A+ set on ebay as you advised me to, but the CPU needs to be an AMD AthlonXP 2400+ Thoroughbred-A 266Mhz FSB, so I have the 2800-+ XP-M Barton for trade for one of those 2400+ CPU's
The other parts I Seek are either one of these 3dfx cards:
3dfx Voodoo3 3500C AGP 16MB:
3dfx Voodoo3 3500 TV AGP 16MB PAL Version:
Yeah it's really atmospheric tbh
Btw I used MS-Paint to get rid of them logo's btw
I hope they are fine for now
Hmm a copper CPU Shim would be advised with those I guess, I had a Coolermaster on my AXP 2700+ it performed very well just don't remember it's name sadly
that was when I took my old ASUS A7V333-R system apart for full renovation rofl, it was le gross
Yet I did replace the Coolermaster's fan with some old Enermax look-a-like fan was less noisy but it did do the job just fine.
Here that same cooler, but cleaned when I had the 8K3A+:
I'll be reusing my dad's A-Open H600B case the one pictured there, in memory of my dad, he is still alive but he too is part of this project
Found the ideal info chart and tech specs of the AXP 2400+ T-Bred-A 266Mhz FSB CPU:
