Post Pictures and Specifications of your computer here!

@Zxian(aka DroopieDrawers)- Have you posted pictures of you tower with the HDs suspended by underwear elastic yet? :)

:lol:

I had posted a picture of the hard drives in my server (dubbed Deathstar) a while back (try to find the post about my CM Stacker case), but I'll post up a front-side view of this computer's suspended hard drives later on tonight.

So THAT'S how those Zalman heatsinks go on... I had this all wrong. :o

Nice one Zxian. Is that an ISA slot on the bottom?

I can't wait to post pictures of the two *really old* computers my mother-in-law gave me. :)

Zxian is it just me or does that video card look like it's being slightly bent? The part on the left looks lower than the right.

Correction - that's how Socket A/370 heatsinks go on. ;)

Yes - it's an ISA slot. Really old stuff, eh? And yea, the video card is slightly bent. It was that way when I got the system, but everything works as it is. I'm guessing it's just from the motherboard and rear panel being off by maybe a millimeter or so... *shrugs*

Yep - Antec Solo review by SPCR. Quite an amazing little case. It's probably what I'm gonna end up buying for my next purchased system. :)

:thumbup ISA! whoo, my board has two ISA, 5 PCI and an AGP slot...thats super old school i guess...i'll have pictures by the weekend i think, my sister is home with her comp so i can take pics and upload them faster.

heres a spoiler:

Soundblaster AWE64 ISA card

USB2.0 PCI card

WMP11 wireless internet PCI card

trendnet ethernet PCI card

GeForce MX/MX 400 32MB AGP card

Dual Pentium II Xeon processors

640MB of SDRAM

DVD+RW DL burner

DVD drive

1x Hitachi Deskstar 40GB drive

1x Hitachi Deskstar 80GB drive

5 Case fans

4 4700RPM fans [two per processor]

1 4500 RPM fan [graphics processor]

Apevia X-Dreamer case with side window

300W PSU

thats the rundown really...its not the newest or coolest [in terms of heat] system there is, but people at my school loved it when they saw it today [music server died at the radio station so i did backup for 6 hours]

it holds up nice, with 4 different clock modes, OC at 503MHz per processor, default at 451MHz per processor, power save at 381MHz, and then another that i haven't tried. its a hot system, and its overheated on me before which is why its got all those fans.

if anyone knows a way to calibrate heat sensors on motherboards, please PM me or something, i have two remote temps that are blazing hot, but i don't know where they are, and i think they may be way off because normally the case interior is about 76-80 F, so i don't understand why it overheats so often at 503MHz.

And here it is...

It's actually quite easy to do, and once you've got some quiet fans on there, it makes a really big difference to the overall noise levels. :)

ooooh isa

whats the slot just above the isa that is half the size of the pci slot

the suspended hdd reminds me of when i had a hdd on a piece of paper because i didnt have enough room for a third hdd.

It was funny because i would say i have 3 hdd's and people would be like wow you have a lot, than i would admit i had 2x quantum fireball 3gb and 1 x 4gb (seagate?)

i bet i have an older computer than you Jeremy, i have two amstrad CPC 464 which have built in tape drives and 4 colour monitors the screen says its from 1984

and theres the slot that came before isa the 8bit slot, does anyone know what its called

@bonestonne: Maybe I'm not a reference since I like blue lights but, the side looks really nice !

@awergh: ah... Amstrad CPCs... Now that was something. I still got my ol' 6128+ . It still works and it's still fun!

it looks good now, i'm thinking of getting UV cables/cathode...depends on the money flow...i'm a pretty cheap DJ right now for my friends [only because i don't have quite everything i should, so i can't really easily charge much [no PA system]]

eventually i'll really trick this thing out...running a pair of PII's isn't as bad as some people would think...its just as fast as my celeron, with more RAM...thats a plus :thumbup
