I was going through my garbage pile today and found a 2GB DDR3 stick which my friend brought over some time ago.
It has some physical damage on the back side from some idiot repairs guy who was trying to upgrade his old PC a couple of years ago. A few traces were ripped, but not too bad to dissuade me from getting free RAM for my yet another trash-build.
All I need is a fine jumper wire (freebie from my last flux and alcohol order), a soldering iron and a steady hand (kept myself away from coffee for 20 minutes just to get prepared for this procedure).

So far that entire PC cost me around $30 ($60 with two 19" monitors) and 2-3 hours of headache(combined). Runs windows 10 && Ubuntu Mate :D

When you have insomnia before a big purchase so you make USB to Fan headers. Going to build a small cooling pad for my router and modem.
Proof of concept 5V was enough via the makeshift USB to 4 pin plug.

Swapped to a Corsair case fan for extra cheapness. Add a box and a fan grill from a dead PSU and.... ghetto perfect
