HDD ODD WIN XP HOME and ... eh? weird PSU positioning .. (yep it's my custom blue led fan modded LC-Power P(OS)SU )
View attachment 57954 View attachment 57955

well result : it's just a plain P4 2.66/512/533 like the original one i had on that board (not sanded) humpf ... i wonder if i should try my P4 HT Ex 2.8/512/800 or the 2.8/1m/800 ... i think the mobo can't handle them so i need to hunt for a new-old one
Duuuuuuuude you really need some light in when taking pics, looks like crap :rolleyes:

orr maybe i'm just picky after owning an N8 and the current Z2 :roll:

I had this motherboard! :D
I give them with replaced caps in CPU section with Athlon 64 3000+ and 1GB of DDR to the friend of mine. He was really poor then (family problems etc), but I helped him. Good use of "old" hardware :)
Before he had P4 2.6GHz on 478 socket, 786MB of DDR, 160GB HDD and Radeon 9200SE, TakeMe "300W" after my "act" - A64 3000+, 1.5GB DDR, Medion X740 XL, 160 + 40GB HDD, Delta 400W.
Now he's traveling a lot and decided to bought HP laptop with AMD turion 64 X2, 3GB DDR2, HD3xxx for 400PLN (~90$).

But yeah, I really helped him ~4 years ago with them, so I'm satisfied.

you sure? if no known damage was done could just need a few caps replaced like ours, usually the ones (5) behind the CPU

A couple of traces near the LPC and under the motherboard are FUBAR.

Damn!... oh well, good luck
Also the HDD in it died too.

Anyways,the new system will have softmod and maybe TSOP if I can practice on a dead 1.6 board (which wasn't worth beans)

EDIT:Well,even though my soldering iron is 40W with lots of time and patience and care,I can do the TSOP unlock points.

Very nice!

Is that a 1080 rad? I'm in negotiations to try and get one like that :)
It's not a 1080 rad (u mean the huge ones?). In the parcel were a 80 & a 120mm rad.

80er Radi 1200 02.jpg


Thats the 80mm. All together I got now 4x 360mm (2x MagiCool slim 360, 1x XSPC RX360, 1x Airplex EVO 360 (which I will swap against another XSPC RX360), 1x 240mm (crappy Thermaltake), 3x120mm (1x Watercool HTF2 (fine fat rad), 1x Airplex EVO 120, 1x crap out of an Alienware/ Asetek AIO), 1x80mm (MagiCool copper X80).

My last WC project (long since dismantled ans sold off, but hopefully soon to be replaced) used a water chiller instead of radiators. I got my 2700K up to 5.5 GHz IBT stable with that setup (who needs LN2 when you can get those speeds? :) )

I just rechecked the case and rad I'm haggling on, and it's an 1800! Hope the guy accepts my offer :)

I am unemployed at the moment and so I'm always pretty broken. I cannot afford a "Heilea" or another chiller. Maybe somewhen in the future.
But I'm still having the idea of a peltier-booster. The hot side watercooled, the cold side cooles the water for the system.

Peltier Booster 1200 01.jpg


I would arrange the tubes in a way u could switch by 2 valves between normal water-cooling and hi-overclocking (peltier)mode. The modules I've got have about 400W heat pumping power, maybe I need still a bit more, but I will test this with what I got. I'll make it so, that u can switch on one peltier-modul after the other.
It's not finished yet, but I think in a few days I will be able to test it.
