cool Geek pics within ...

Since I spent most of yesterday gutting and rebuilding my PC, I figured it deserved a piccie ...



Things I did to it yesterday:
[list=1][*]Updated the motherboard to a Abit KX7-333R[*]Swapped in my Xp1700+ chip[*]Swapped my 512mb PC-150 RAM for 1Gb of DDR333[*]Changed the heatsink from a screaming GlobalWin FOP-38 to the almost silent Zalman CNPS-6000Cu (it is sheer bliss :s3 )[*]Put in the equally silent Zalman ST-300BLP powersupply[*]Hooked up my DigiDoc5 to run the 4 80mm Sunon fans dotted around the case. You can see one of them in the top left of the case - a second one sits next to it, and two more sit in the bottom of the case, at the front. Also ran four temp probes from it to get temps of the internal air, and of the main HDD's[*]Added a second RAID array to my box. The two drives in the lower cage are a pair of IBM 45gb ATA100 drives, whilst the two in the top are the new Maxtor 80gb ATA133 jobbies, giving me 0.25 Terabytes all up :s6:[*]Spent 3 hours F$^@ing around with a BSOD'ing WinXP, before woring out the solution to be to swap one of the NIC's with the SB Live! ... bugger ... [/list=1]

Ahh, but she's running now, and it's so quiet, I can hear my laptop running next to it! :s5 That is, until the DigiDoc turns on all the 80's, and it turns into the screaming banchee vacuum cleaner from hell ... :s3

Oh, and I know it looks like someone had a multicoloured spagetti fight inside my PC, but it looks a bit better since I took that piccie - I went nuts with cable ties shortly afterwoods :s2:

Aye Hobbes, looks good mate. Yeah AMD is definitly the way to go these days. Bloody hell 1Gb ram, i have to say even with 524Mb ram it already flys and haven't found anything so far that bogs it down. Do you notice XP any quicker with 1Gb compared to 512Mb.

Oh yeah you got the same modem as me, just wondering would you know where to get the latest software for it. Seems Banksia has gone bust.

It's too neat! Shame on you! However, I do like your strategic positioning of the modem.

What's that LCD thingy above your CD-ROM?
