View Full Version : Closed A4000 040/25 in a tower

14th September 2008, 11:14
Commodore Amiga A4000 040 in a black tower for sale
Motherboard version is Rev B
Has 3.1 roms installed
cpu is an 040 @ 25MHZ board is an A3640 rev 3.1
There is a Buudda flash pheonix IDE card installed
IDE Fix ide splitter with IDEFix97 installed
Compact flash to IDE card with a 512MB CF card (perfect for transferring files from PC)
Digital Processing Systems TDC card rev 4
Video toaster card
Original floppy drive
DVD drive
CDRW drive
2MB chip ram and 16MB fast ram
OS3.9 installed
Mouse, Keyboard and joystick
PC ATX power supply
Battery had leaked but has caused no damage and has been replaced with a non leaking battery (clock works perfectly)
Scart lead and all cables needed to contect up to power/sound etc.
there are quite a few cds and disks included but I don't know what's on them, so consider as blanks.

Now the TBC and Video toaster have never been tested as I do not have the software/drivers for them and I have never tried to use them as I don't really know what to do with them.
I will include the original A4000 case with an untested A4000 motherboard in it.

We all know that these parts cost a small fortune to buy separately, and good A4000's are getting hard to find, so why not just buy this one all ready to go?
As the photos show this system works perfectly, but due to it's age this is sold as seen. Looking for 300.00 plus shipping collection can also be arranged
all the best JuvUK

Heck Mr.! :shock:

That's an awful lot of serious Amiga Hardware for a mere 300.00!

I don't see this hanging around long!

Best of luck JuvUK. :D

Hi Kin,
Thanks, but no interest yet :( lol

15th September 2008, 10:41
I could be interested in a swap if someone has a A1200 with a decent accelerator and 3.1 roms maybe we could do a deal
thanks, JuvUK

15th September 2008, 13:07
I'd give it a few days and i'm sure someone will snap this up.

15th September 2008, 14:38

16th September 2008, 17:18
nobody wants a 4000 anymore?

Not yours. It's too slow...

Just kidding mate :D, don't need one cause I already have one. Just received some 32MB SIMMs for her today so I now have a total of 2MB Chip and 272MB FastRAM :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

16th September 2008, 19:05
sob! I would LOVE a 4000, but just can't afford at the moment! I do have a 1200 060 but i don't think i have the heart to part with her... Curses!

The thread here is not off site linking in any manner. eBays advert does state it may be removed as it is advertised elsewhere! - being "here" for one! :wink:

Best of Luck JuvUK! :D

Thanks for this Kin, as i have already said, i'd much rather someone here (true amigans) got it
thanks again, JuvUK

Hi ZetrO,
were you joking about the swap?

17th September 2008, 02:16
I most certainly was not joking....

its a most juicy carrot you have there :) I have always wanted an A4000 and a friend is badgering me....

lets see....

I have the following available A1200

Apollo Mk3 030@40 +40mhz 68881 FPU with 32MB ram *
Kickstart 3.1
IDEFix 97
4GB Compact Flash Module

*I can add the simm port to fit a further 32MB ram (64MB total) but would only fit in a tower or other custom chassis
as you know the best 030 card for the A1200 is most certainly the Mk4 Blizzard, however the Mk3 Apollo has a 10% faster chip access time, and is rock stable... just a shame about the crappy SCSI to be honest.

so the question is, do you want that in a classic desktop with Laptop DVD/CDRW or in a custom chassis ?
does that interest you good sir... I have the CF Hard disk prepped and running OS3.5 and 3.5GB of WHDLoad yummyness :D

17th September 2008, 09:12
Good Morning Zetro,
to show i'm serious i have ended the bay listing and cancelled all bids.
now on to the nitty gritty m8, what do you mean by custom chassis?
thanks, JuvUK

WOW! :shock:

This is wicked stuff! 8)

my friend, to show you I am serious, have a look at this custom SBC PC Amithalon chassis :)

introducing the Fantasy Amiga X86 (Fax86 Project)


>so... want to know more? then click me< (http://www.guildserver.co.uk/projects/main.php?g2_itemId=1204)

now the above is a heavily customized A1200 chassis with an PICMG form factor XP26000 CPU with 1GB of DDR SEC Ram, 80GB HDD, 60GB HDD 4GB CF an with both DVDRW and 1.44 Floppy. Only problem was power, there is currently no Pico PSU or MAXI Psu (SFF PSU's) that can provide enough juice on the +5v (needs 13amps) so its in lue of being finished (fingers crossed :D)

now, I can make a simple internal SFF DVD/CDRW drive mod into an A1200 and have it all looking nice no worries, or if you are interested I could build this into a HTPC chassis (like a DVD Player chassis) which I was planning to do. the job would also include a either 120watt Pico PSU(with 12volt 10amp plugpack) or 200watt micro ATX, with a custom power interface, SFF DVD/CDRW, PS2 Keyboard interface and the rest I mentioned above.

let me know your thoughts m8y

17th September 2008, 15:42
well i must say i like the idea of getting as much as i can inside a standard case, i still like the original 1200 style (personal choice) and yeah why the hell not? i still like 1200's and you want a A4000, so we both win right!! 8)

so lets sort this thing :P
cheers, JuvUK
