Right? I hate the blocky, purple and lavender mess we got in North America. It's pathetic by comparison.

Exactly, the American SNES looks like a cheap toy but SFamicom/PAL SNES looks cool.

Y'all do you. I can take or leave the shape, but REALLY prefer the color choices on the NA SNES.

I had a P280 white back in the day and damn I loved that case. Had a X58 setup as a daily driver in it back in 2015
I also did like P280. Worst thing with mine was yellowing on the front panel's plastic parts, they didn't match with other(metal) parts of the case. Those did not have contact with the sun at all, but still had some yellow coloring. I only had my FX system on it.

P380 saw my Haswell 4790k to Plus gen. Ryzen builds. AMD R7 2700 was probably last one I used in it. Changed my primary case to Raijintek Thetis Window after P380. Case that had even worst air flow for cpu. These days I am using Fractal Design Meshify C White for my primary PC. Thetis as my secondary PC and Fujitsu Celsius R940power as my third pc.

For P180 I can't even list what configurations I had at the time. There was so much different hardware I did have those days. Those cases did see a lot of different parts

Yeah... its colours are nice, would be cool to have a PAL SNES with NTSC SNES colours :)

I had mine only for few months so it didn't yellow on me. I remember that it had great sound dampening, that rig was as quiet as my sex life is today. :laugh:

Cables are cheap! So are controllers.
I'll take this with me when I visit my friend next time, he has a SNES so he has all the cables etc :)

IF this is a working one, I'll give him 30EUR :toast:

You might be having driver issues. Have you tried using different drivers?

Weird. Beyond that, perhaps @Kissamies suggestion of a different version of GPUZ?
Well, the newest one worked me in last week with XP rig :D

Phil from the YouTube channel is in Australia. @phill the TPU staff member(formerly a moderator?) is in the UK. Not the same person. However, Phil from the YouTube channel is known to visit here and is the occasional witty smart-alec.
Funny that youtube-Phil has lived in Austria and now in Australia. I remember that as a kid that I mixed the county Hungary with the word hungry... sorry for the hungry Hungarians!

Yeah, I remembered him saying distinctly both Austria and Australia throughout channel's history and got a little confused there myself. Thx for clearing it up.

Not laughing AT you so much as just thought this was funny! I currently have a Core i5 4570 running Windows XP...
I used to have i5 4670k running XP I think I have the pics in the thread earlier, but I find it too fast and doesn't feel at all right (since I only play early 2000 games on it) resorted me to retire it early and use another, more period correct rig instead.

For my purpose, I wanted to run the 32bit versions of Crysis, Crysis Warhead and a few other games & apps on the OS they were developed for. I can't explain why but it just "feels" better that way. I was using my Dell T3500 with W3680, but that has been retasked for something else. And in all fairness, the i5-4570 is more than powerful enough for XP and what I do with it.
