Enter The Dragon! A Nostalgic Build.
First I want to thank a couple of great guys that have helped inspire and supply parts for this awesome build!!!
Neil_M from over at [H]ard Forums for supplying the awesome Antec SX1040 II SOHO enclosure! Thanks a ton Neil!!!!!!!
Next is our very on The_Mad_Shot for his awesome inspiration and supplying some very necessary hardware! Thanks a ton brother.
Now I want to take a moment and thank FrozenCPU and Koolance for some awesome hardware to help make this possible!
With the above said, take a ride with me as we make this very awesome old nostalgic AMD S939 system come to life.
First let me put an image up of the majority of manufactures that have also made such a build possible!
Sadly three of the above manufactures are no longer in business! BFG, an Nvidia partner, DFI, a great motherboard manufacture, and Danger Den, a great liquid cooling and case manufacture have all folded up their businesses. Very sad as these three were some awesome companies.
Well I know everyone is just dying to see some pictures and have me shut up! LOLOL
Well lets get too it!
First up is the Awesome Antec SX1040 II SOHO enclosure!
Next the heart of the build! The awesome DFI Lanparty NF4 SLi-DR motherboard! this also includes the killer AMD Opteron 175 Denmark! The awesome Opteron 175 will be cooled by a Swiftech Apogee XT Rev 2!
Now on board this awesome motherboard is a couple of black PCB Nvidia 8800GTX's dressed in BFG Danger Den full coverage water blocks!!!
Now I want to thank the awesome folks at FrozenCPU for supplying me with the needed Monsoon rotary adapters, Monsoon compression fittings, Primochill UV Anti-Kink Coils, and the industrial Neoprene tubing!!
Now I'll bet your wondering what the heck I am actually cooling all these liquid parts with! None other than an awesome Koolance EX2-1055 liquid cooling system!!
Okay, here is some more of the parts that have recently arrived.
First I want to thank our own The_Mad_Shot for supplying these awesome ram sticks!!!
Next is the awesome Koolance Quick couplers.
And finally the Seasonic M12D 750 watt modular power supply.
Well for now, that pretty much does it. I will be editing this to add the memory, power supply, hard drive, and optical drive soon. the following post is going to be reserved for the actual build, so be sure to stay tuned!!!
Thanks for riding along with me on this old nostalgic adventure!!!
