Had several different COMPAQ Proliant servers, vintage 1998 or so.
Don't remember models.
Some of the boards are yuge.
Most of the boards are MOBOs with dual sockets, some had dual Pentium III slot processors.
Kind of confused as to which pile they'd go in.
Any help would be great.

Thank you,

RustyFuryIII

File comment: Front side of board with three slots for stacked button batteries. There are two of theses boards. One plugged into the board in image 9303 and one board plugged into the board in image 9306. Were these some sort of memory boards?

Looks like battery backed flash drive. But. You have chip art!!! Mr piggy! He may be worth selling on ebay. Collectors, myself included, love board/chip art!
Peripheral

9310/9309 low end of telco

9308
Large dual socket motherboard

9306/9307
These risers are always difficult to place. My guess here is gold finger card. Not quite enough to make telco

9305
Metal socket

9303/9304
Another riser: this time telco

9302
Dual large socket

9301
Dual small socket

9300
Dual small socket

Thanks Lost!

The board in img9306 had a couple of ICs and a CPU in the sockets. I guess if I put them back, the board would go higher? That however, I won't be doing though. I was able to pluck a nice, purple ceramic AMD am29040-33GC CPU for my collection.

The two Intel Pentium, green fiber Pentium IIIs I was able to pull from that batch of Compaq Proliant servers, new to my collection as well.

The AMD Am386 DX/DXL-25 came from another haul, not sure the date on it yet, have to look it up.

Concerning the board/IC art. I'll put up a post in the "Conversation" section of the forum with questions in a bit.

Sweet 29k40!
AMD RISC cpus are like Pokemon. Gotta catch em all!
Well, more accurately like game boy and game cube collecting. There are many different colours of RISC ceramics from AMD. Purple is the most common variant beyond grey but blue, green, black, and red ones exist.
The grail of this set though is the ‘war paint’ ceramic. Here from wiki commons.

It just looks mean! And was a short run production
