What did you do with it after finding it there?
I put it in some rice to prevent water damage. This isn't actually mine btw I just thought it was funny.
I bet it still works if cleaned and if no components have physical damage.
the PSU has no wires. i think its gunna work fine.
It's energy efficient.
I bought a 8800GT off some dude the other day and it ran really hot so I decided to replace the TIM, this is what I found... Do you think they could have used a bit more TIM?
I remember seeing an article where they published the repair instructions for one of the Macbooks. In it, it said to use the entire tube of thermal paste, and the people responding to the article were showing gobs and gobs of thermal paste on their chips. WTF.
TacoTown's pictures make me laugh when I see that the processor is still there. It's obvious that whoever encountered it first took all the wires for the copper, but if I came across it, the first thing I would take would be the processor.
my god its horrible
lol thats a lot of paste. plus iTs mispelled as daub? shouldnt it be a dab of ...?
Shouldn't there be those thermal pads there? If so that might be an attempt on recreating them, sort of.
true, since ram chips can vary in height, you need to use thermal pads. the foam ones.
in guessing, he wanted to compensate with a lot of paste.
daub is grammatically correct...http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/daub
yep, that's the one :shadedshu
american vs british english
just little rust?
i guess old school case has good material
just clean up repaint it and it would rock
IRL Farmville compatible.
Not rust, it's sand. This one doesn't float so well.
if i was you, im gonna take that case home and mod it
at least paint it and plan new build with that
If you wanna give me a dremel, and some decent gear to put in it ill do it. Side note, I will sell the case for $700 dollars..
hehe.. maybe one of the member interested
