Didn't remember that there were Pentium MMX's without heatspreader, those ceramic pieces look sweet
Duuuuuuuude you really need some light in when taking pics, looks like crap
orr maybe i'm just picky after owning an N8 and the current Z2
Asus ME175CG 5mPix FTW ... m'kay you are right ... i should use my Canon SX100iS instead ... but that kind of grainy pics give a nostalgic old school effect (what ... not convincing? oh i tried ... you can't blame me for trying )
i get ya, especially if you use an incandescent light for that extra nostalgic effect

before being closed for "necro" reason
Please excuse the dust; I try to keep my things clean. I had this in a box.
It has a decapped Toledo x2 3800 @ 2.9GHz last time I remember."
I see I'm not the only one who wrap fan wires around sata and usb ports onboard connectors
I had this motherboard!
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.
My current specs with CPU-Z : http://valid.x86.fr/kemicj
Digged this outta my closet:
Sadly the motherboard inside is shot so I'm going to replace the motherboard with another one from a version 1.2 - 1.5 Xbox. Same for the HDD,a UX series Seagate.
Goodwill had this little buddy. Dunno what it is. All I know is that it is AGP based.
ASUS Ati 9200LE 128MB RV280-LE-A0625 AGP
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.
A guy from P3D sent me a "care-parcel".
All for free! I am a lucky handicrafter!
After cleaning & polishing the coolers look like new.
gimmeeeeeh!!!! (nice finding! )
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.
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.
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.
If I had as many engineering skills as I have ambitions I would try something like that.
Holy crap Backfire, nice pair of Eheim pumps! Them are frigging awesome pumps!
These are Eheim 1046. They are not very powerful. Ok, a pump is powerful enough for a watercooling as long as its able to let the water flow, and all my Eheims (I got 3x 1046) were presents from other watercooling-enthusiasts with more money . But, if u are in the situation to buy a pump, get a DC12-400 or DC12-260 phobya (these are sold by different "watercooling outfitters" i. e. "EK-Waterblocks", mine is from Phobya), it has much power, its quiet, its compact and it costs not to much (DC12-400 = 44€, DC12-260 = 37€, DC12-220 = 34€). I am using the 400 for about 1 year and no problems till now.
1 Phobya 400 does more l/h than 2 Eheim 1046 put together. But two 1046 are pretty powerful, too.
The cooling for the hot side.
So far, but I'm not happy with it. I destroyed one cover because I accidently mounted it upside down. It's still watertight, and I put some 5min. epoxy on it to be on the safe side, but that is not the problem.
I don't know why, and I've never seen it before, but the 4 cuplex coolers slow down the flow of the phobya pump for about 50%. That is far to much in my eyes. Maybe there is somewhere dirt in a cooler that I didn't see. However, I disassembled it and I have to think the whole thing over.
