The ugliest test bench since 2004 (probably). Shoutouts to MSI for making terrible VRMs on AM3 so I can use their busted board as a test bench with some standoffs. This airflow is jank but optimal, memory gets massive airflow from the GPU fan overhang, CPU fan feeds right into northbridge heatsink. Featuring an Antec Earthwatts EA-500, Seasonic platform from like 2006, somehow still running without any re-capping. I screwed in the front panel section of an old NZXT case to the MSI board for some USB/audio on the other side, and one part of that same case serves as power/reset switches for boards that don't have them.
My only problem is getting USB mice and keyboard to work on this, I have to use a PS/2 keyboard to get into BIOS or do anything and I have no idea why. USB keyboard / mouse are enabled in BIOS, I'm probably missing something obvious.
