I have to say this MSI X58 motherbard. This thing has been used every single day since 2009, overclocked from day one. The 2 onboard lan ports fired, the sound is fried and 4 of the 6 ram slots do not work. I have sound card, lan card and SSD overclocked X5560 to 4.0 and still works amazing. Also my Logitech G-15 keyboard 2008 ish...only one I use and MX518 mouse same time 2007-2009. I so want to build a new computer but I am cheap also..and this PC works so well I can hot justify the money. I keep telling myself when this PC dies I get to build a new system...but it will not die...and its not like I am nice to it. I only dust when needed and paste every few years. And the OCZ 700 power supply from 2009 also..they will die one day..And I will build a Ryzen25 or Intel Core I50 lol.

If that isnt dead already, it's certainly in life support considering all the add in cards for functionality. :p

nope no in wire caps as far as i see (completely flat cable ) usually good PSU have their ripple suppressor cap on the PCB where the modular connector are (afaik i never had any PSU with in wire caps )

oh and 4 rig meant at last (i have her since mmhhhh ~ 2013 just like the Vertex III) almost 2yrs continuous use per rig

I would agree except..the onboard sound and lan fried in the first week. I had the first revision of the I7 the 920 and did not go past 3.9...and I tried and tried to get to 4.0 so the board has been on life support since 2009.

I'm still using my Cambridge Soundworks FourPoint speakers which throw out a surprisingly good sound and I've never found a good reason to change them.
Picked them up in a PC World (Hereford, UK) bargain bin in 2000 for £10 and have moved house five times since then with no issues at all.

I have some pretty old gear just lying around and also in use in my retro PCs, but the oldest component in my main Ryzen 2600 rig is my 2TB storage disk. It’s a Seagate Barracuda from about 2011/12.

Otherwise my keyboard is older since I've had it before I got married.....got it sometime around year 2000:

(image is not my actual keyboard)
MS Natural Keyboard Elite

Best ergonomic keyboard I've found and used. I've tried a handful of others over the years, but they all suck in comparison. I even tried the newer Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 - what a POS.

My mouse, a Logitech Wheel Mouse model M-BJ58 (early optical mice). Replaced the buttons because they were doubleclicking. It's my second mouse that used to belong to my very first pc which I bought with my own salary in 1997. I'm planning to replace it with a wireless one, probably a M720 Triathlon, but I don't like the rubberized coating, so I'm still waiting if some manufacturer would come up with something better.

Oldest thing INSIDE the PC is a shucked 500GB WD Greenpower drive with manufacturing date Jan 8 2008. It's making sounds, a little slow to wake up after it spins down, but it's still working.
Next oldest thing inside the PC is a 2.5" Hitachi 160GB IDE drive hooked up with an IDE to SATA adapter. It was the reserve drive to my ASUS notebook, which died 3 years ago. I bought it maybe 2010.

Other old stuff are mostly 2.5" external drives.

The newest is a WD Blue 4TB drive.

In my daily I believe it would have to be my Evga 1300 G2, in a few months I will have had it for 6 years.

Ah forgot about my Tt Challenger membrane keyboard, think I've had it for around 7 or 8 years, got it when I built my first PC.

Benchmark Scores bench...mark? i do leave mark on bench sometime, to remember which one is the most comfortable. :o
Same with my 850w, M2II Bronze. Awesome PSU. Now that I've said that, mine will probably fail or something :roll::nutkick:
knock on wood ;) as long as she doesn't whine you're fine (ohhhh and it rhymes).
And Seasonic PSUs are fine wine ..... oh my dog, i couldn't resist ...

ah, you made me double check for my SSD tho ....
seems fine ...

actually, i found out some gear from some years back are more resilient than newer hardware, which is why i have a lot of old hardware laying around the livingroom and some use worthy retrorigs for fun

Several Logitech G sumethin sumethin LCD KBs.

Focus 9000 series KBs circa 1991

Antec 900 case i've had since 2009. It's heavy, has terrible cable mangament, and the front panel connectors don't work but all 4 fans work and my temps are fine so i'm still rocking it.


My parents have a near 10 year old computer in there den that still works fine. Oldest component in it is the 8400GS which was from 2007. Case, powersupply, and processor (Phenom X4) are about 10 years old. Recently upped the ram for free and switch to an SSD and it's still a solid office computer

I think my desktop speakers might be 6 or 7 years old now, and my dac is 5 years now too. I have some flash drives as small as 2gb on my desk. Also have lots of retired hardware kicking around like old ide drives and heatsinks.
