    This may sound strange... but some people don't conduct electricity as much as others. I can touch all over a mobo and nothing happens. Then my friend will just touch it and its dead... this is when I figured this out. I think I heard something like this on Discovery. I've never had a problem with shorting anything or getting to much skin oil on them... but yea its usually not a good idea. But, back then things were built a little tougher.

    Edit: fixed a slight grammar issue... in bold

    Yes back then stuff was built to last. Proof is in that the stuff still runs today.

    Yea I bet they had some really sensitive components... in that situation I'd take every precaution since more is at stake

    its the fact of the price, a Single Part can cost as much as the worlds most expensive super car

    Not ancient but old... My one of my ATI 9800 pros... Can spy two bartons in the background.. a 2200+ and a 3200+ from memory (faulty memory so no guarantees lol)
    [​IMG]

    My watercooled rig... Koolance had just come out with the exos system at the time. Had an A7N8X Asus mobo.. 9800pro, overclocked 2200+, original corsair XMS memory.. 4gb! Original 32gb or something like that raptors in raid 0 and a enermax power supply. For the time... it was a freaking ballistic missile. I remember taking it to a large lan party and had many jaws on the floor as it was quite high end for the time.

    A watercooled shuttle I built... With watercooled 9800pro :D

    Need to dig up some pics of my other gear...4200ti's... other various ATI gear. Oh the painful memories money wise... The 9800 pro with zalman heatsink is still going strong BTW in my friends / kids school PC!

    eidairaman1 - Been so long I have no idea. Took those photos about 10 or more years ago!

    ThE_MaD_ShOt - got rid of the koolance stuff probably 6 years ago. Still good gear and can be used today. Would not mind having another exos but my new case will not allow it to sit on top like that.

    Thanks guys! Overall very cool seeing all the old gear.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Just pick up a XP-M chip. They clock easier and farther then regular Barton chips do. And you can get one for next to nothing on Ebay now. I personally use the Xp-m 2500+. The 2400's are good to. Ask Stinger about them. He is running one.
