Well been thinking of making this thread for so long now and thought it still could be a good idea.

Idea being is some one posts some thing electronic \ computer related to see if others know what it is, it could be even a part of some thing.

Like a example ( no pic for this ) Some one posted a picture of a VHS tape heads to see if others could guess it. It can be some think i did see on here not to long ago posted some thing that helps to remove CPU's.

Well i hope you all get the idea.

So to start off

A hint: The thing it does is massively parallel, and the little black squares are "cores." Can max out that Seasonic unit inside it. Those fans are 5000RPM delta electronics blowers.

lol, I don't even know what that is, but nope.

I'm willing to bet whatever that is though, it's more beneficial to society than this machine was. ;)

Another hint: I owned this hardware. Photos are mine.

...and that may or may not be a pun.
Damn...now I'm really interested. Researching it to the best of my limited knowledge, but at the moment, I'm lost and confused by it.

Meh, I may have been slightly dishonest earlier. The chromebook on top is not entirely unrelated to it. Actually, it needs a host system to control it. You may glean something from the screen, if you know what you are looking for.

Other than that, I'm going to let you guys digest on that for a while. :)

Close enough. It's a Litecoin Miner, specifically a Chinese built Zeusminer Lightning X6 unit. It paid about 1/3rd of it's cost before it became unprofitable and worthless due to litecoins collapse. I then converted the whole thing to scrap metal. It had an unsurprisingly high lead content.

It's actually one of the most powerful pieces of scrypt hashing hardware ever made by man, not that that's useful for anything now. It could hash approximately 50M (that's million) hashes per second.

Is indeed! (why do i get the impression that you plugged the image into images.google.com? :laugh:)

Cherry MX switches and MX clones like Gateron/Kaihl/Outemu have certain design features that go unappreciated most of the time. On boards where the switches are PCB-mounted or with a specially designed plate, you can use two of these to pry off the top half of the black switch housing, exposing parts like the stem (shaped like an upside down fat T) / spring / contact, etc. This allows the lubing of those parts with lubricants like Krytox and basically makes the switch heavenly smooth afterwards. Takes a lot of work, but the difference is remarkable.

Is indeed! (why do i get the impression that you plugged the image into images.google.com? :laugh:)

Cherry MX switches and MX clones like Gateron/Kaihl/Outemu have certain design features that go unappreciated most of the time. On boards where the switches are PCB-mounted or with a specially designed plate, you can use two of these to pry off the top half of the black switch housing, exposing parts like the stem (shaped like an upside down fat T) / spring / contact, etc. This allows the lubing of those parts with lubricants like Krytox and basically makes the switch heavenly smooth afterwards. Takes a lot of work, but the difference is remarkable.
i've seen these before, although never used them, i did have to google for my edit, but knew generally they were for mechanical keyboard keys :D sorry i cheated a bit.
