It has been updated. Changed the CPU cooler with G-Power Pro cooler. Temp dropped by more than 12 degrees from 3D-Rocket cooler. (With AS5). Spend hours figuring out to route the wirings for the CPU cooler (such a hectic, but finally came out okay I guess). Added two exhaust fans (AC Ryan 80mm). Changed PC keyboard (Saitek Eclipse II Illuminated). A faster and newer Graphics card is still on its way. It's about time to OC this thing!
This pc was built on 1-Jan-2003. It had A7N266-VM Motherboard with AMD 2000+ XP Processor, along with GeForce Ti4200 AGP Card with it's Western Digital IDE HDD and Optical Drives. I was only 14 years old back then. As for that, I only had limited budget for upgrade. I only upgrade the memory to 1GB. It was a value ram. Then changed the graphics card from the Ti4200 to 9600XT. Then 2006, I'm a college student, used the money to upgrade my pc. Major change took placed for the pc. Upgraded the memory to Corsair, the processor to an XP-M, the PSU and other little stuffs. Changed the 9600XT with an 9600PRO. I'm using it as a temporary card as my 9600XT actually got damaged by a falling PSU on it. Pretty sad. My careless mistake aswell while swapping the PSU on standing position. Since then I always lie down the PC when I'm making adjustments. Check out my new rig too! It's also been updated with some new components.
