    Got a Thermaltake heatsink with missing fan mount. Zip ties to the rescue!!!

    This will go nicely with the scraps build. In fact I like it way more than the Ninja 2 I ordered a few days ago.

    The mounting clip was twisted but hopefully it will hold after straightening it. Heck, maybe I should be more concerned about the plastic bracket, this thing weights a 0.001ton

    lets have a good laugh ... or cry depending ... :laugh::cry:

    dump run (same a QDQ run but irl (QDQ: Quake Done Quicker obviously))

    well i found some goodies.
    1st batch good shape (almost ... that the only pieces i could salvage, the rest was wrecked with a hammer it seems)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Good Ol' Celeron D Sckt 775. 3.06/256/533
    and the DDR2 256mb that was with
    [​IMG]
    i suspect the 3 other where taken since all slot where open

    then i looked the ground where a lot of keyboard key where shattered ... and i found
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    yup a Athlon II cracked pin bended core shattered and the Southbridge that goes with ... lucky the guy who did this wasnt around ... otherwise there would have been teeth instead of keyboard keys, on the ground

    afterward i found this ...
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    this is what you get when you try to open a Xbox360 with a hammer ... (or if you are jealous and dont want people to salvage it correctly)

    well then that would be my luck to posses a set of chips and a APU(kinda ... not... since the GPU and CPU die are disctinct) without wrecking my own 360 xD oh and have a extra short Sata cable :p
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    and a Symbol PDA under WinCE with a barcode Scanner ... uh no battery pack in it :twitch:
    oh well still a collection piece :D
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    then im waiting for this baby to come home ... i won the auction for 3$ roughly.
    [​IMG]
    Asus V8420/Deluxe GF4 Ti 4200 128MB

    edit for the win
    when Sapphire knows how to make appealing box ... unlike the new ones with military "female" (are they female ... i see boobies but ...they are fugly:wtf: )
    [​IMG]
    HD4850 i found one on ricardo im waiting the end of the auction, Hands down the CUTEST ruby on a box EVER!

    update:

    i opened the Symbol pda (never underestimate a g33k with a set of microprecision screwdriver and some screw loose...) as the product model gave some different result for the same PPT2846 serie

    so it seems to be a WLAN Windows mobile 2003 with color screen (this last part i cant verify, like if its functional or not since no battery pack or dock)
    Wlan card is a LA412T PCMCIA 2 antenna plug
    [​IMG]

    processor is a Intel StrongArm SA 1110 206mhz
    64 MB RAM, 32 MB ROM
    1D Scan Engine
    1550mAh Battery

    i found some part on ebay and some other websites but as i dont know it its functional i better not order those and find that device out of order :ohwell:

    god i love all those freaking flat cable wich make the opening and remounting sooooo interesting.:banghead:

    edit: i take a wild guess and do another Dump Run maybe i can find the battery and the cradle. :roll:

    I do not own that card any longer, but I kept the box. I remember my sister saying "nice box" when she saw it, lol (a few years back when I had recently bought the card).

    Some people's internet connections do not handle pictures that large well enough.

    I mentioned I had it out and booted in another thread, so I thought I'd post it here.

    Here is my first PC; Amstrad PC1640 HD20.

    P.S. Not sure why there is white paint or liquid paper on it....

    thought id add some of the older stuff i had hanging around

    A Geforce 4 mx440 se 128mb AGP 8x i clocked the crap outta this card and it still works to this day (well it did when i put it away)

    A 9600 GSO with 768mb mem works fine, fans dead needs new fan/aftermarket cooler
    A 9600 GT 512mb works fine, fans vibrates, could do with a new cooler.

    both cards clock well and would still be using them if it wernt for the minor niggles of the fans breaking
