View Full Version : My Comp Mods

02-13-2006, 10:24 PM
To think.. it all started with this. A comp i bought, and way overpaid for. But i was dumb and didnt do my homework. Frankly, didnt know enough about comps to have bought one myself. but anyway.. this is how it goes.

Then.. i got bored one night, just ripped it apart and painted it black. it sat for a long while like that and i was far from ever happy with it.
so.. another bored night, grabbed the grinder. I dont mean dremel, im talking good ol 4 inch dewalt grinder to cut the window out.
That grew into this. But then i decided why not just upgrade everything. So....
On to this. New mobo, cpu, psu, hd, gpu and ram

Went from biostar mobo (nForce3)
Sempron 2600+64
Geforce 4 Ti4200 64mb
200 gig SATA (maxtor)
2 * 512 ddr400 Markvision Ram
300watt sparkle psu

Asus k8n4e Deluxe Mobo (nForce4)
Athlon 3400+64
Geforce 6800 Ultra 256mb
250 gig Seagate Barracuda SATA
2 * 1024 Kingston DDR400
450 Antec PSU

And to compare basic black paint with new carbon fibre vinyls in and out....

And last but not least, my newest addition. My LCD. 19 inch widescreen from viewsonic with 8ms. pretty slick monitor. gotta love sales.

Only problem is now, is keeping it cool inside. ive got 5 ciruclation fans alone, not to mention 7 fans inside keeping components cool. Idle temps about 27C
