    @ Puma99dkl I'm always telling people win7 runs quite well on old hardware infact a mate of mine has win7 x86 running on an AthlonXP 3200+ with 2GB ddr400 and an AGP radeon HD3650 and an 250GB SATA2 HDD ...ok so it's not a speed demon but it does what he wants and gets him there eventually

    yeah, even my sis on her small Asus Seashell with a Intel Atom and 2gigs of ram she was like Windows 7 r u for real :twitch: and it does aero aswell so it's good.

    but Athlonite the only thing here is it was SATA-1 (SATA1.5GB/s) so the SSD was not running 110% speed i could feel that but it is faster than normal HDD even through that speed limit :D

    Got everything already sorted, 2700 was running at @5.0 for bench and it is running at 4.5 24/7. Once all the blocks are in place, will try 5.2-5.5 as 24/7 and also overclock GTXs since I have not tried that yet.

    Also to keep temps lower, looking to add TEC as water chiller

    Just posted build log, not very good at documenting builds ;) got some mesh panel to go around, but have not yet taken photos

    Corsair Force Series 3 Series 60GB SSD

    i am testing this lille system my dad gived to me, it's a little Intel Core 2 Duo E5300 if i don't remember wrong in a Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L Rev 1.1 as u can see on some of the connector pins it have had a hard live not my dad's fault i dunno where he got it.

    i took 1 stick of Kingston KHX6400D2LLK2/2GN which is a 1gb stick and it booted so i updated the board from bios F8 to F10 which is the newest but now i got more options and they only did Rev 1.x bios' so i am like dual IDE options and i only got 1 IDE connector and a floppy :wtf:

    [​IMG]

    i did a quick memtest86+ test and ino the board is using DDR2 but apparently memtest86+ things it's DDR3 check the "Type: "

    [​IMG]


    and yes it's hooked up to my Intel X25-M G2 80GB SSD Drive which didn't wanna boot so reinstalling Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 again ~.~

    but thinking about using it as a mini-htpc or a cruncher but i dunno actually bcs my Gaming rig is running 24-7 bcs i use it as a htpc aswell so i maybe end up been out the pins and sell it off to someone who will use it :ohwell:

    maybe dunno, i am thinking about putting it in my Lian Li case, bcs i don't think i will be modding it as much as i want, so i will maybe just swap it in there and with low-noise fans in front and one in the side there should be air enough for not ever heating.

    [​IMG]

    oh and it's not a C2D but a Pentium E5300 build on the Wolfdale 45nm core ^^;


    now it's in the case and i ran a custom 400mb IntelBurnTest since there is only 1gb of memory in it and a low-noise fan (almost) directly at the side of the cpu fan i get max temps of 50~51c now that bad i think ^^

    [​IMG]

    oh and not to forget that little Intel X25-M G2 80gb is making it run fast and smooth and even boots and install programs at a nice speed i can wait on ^^;

    Corsair H100 or H80 works great in these. I was using H100 as temp water cooling in v351 that is now undergoing mods for 360 and 120 rad.

    at one point i was thinking about modding it so i could have a Intel RTS2011LC in that case together with my system but, i still need to cut it, bcs my GTX 680 is too long bcs of the 3,25" slot for floppy drive, and maybe need to cut more than just that away ._.

    i also recently got this Asus GeForce EN9800GT/DI/1GD3/A Card from my dad :rolleyes:

    And yes ino it got a "Tail" but it's so i don't loose that 2x4pins molex to 6pins pci-express adaptor cable ^^;

    It's in fact exactly 16.8 cm and come to think of it it's almost the exact size of the GTX670 PCB and it has 2 x 6 pin power. I was really surprised by the dimension since I ordered the card and in the few pictures available it looked bigger.

    I'm waiting to see tri-SLI with watercooled, reference 670s. It's gonna look funny to see those tiny cards. What's sad is my old x1600xt is actually longer than both your card and the 670 and is nowhere near as powerful.:roll:
