Here's pictures of my hardware adventures over the past few weeks
. First up is replacing the northbridge cooler on my Abit NF7-S. The stock cooler isn't too good and the fan didn't sound too healthy either so I took the heatsink from my friend's dead DFI NF2 Infinity board and strapped on a 50mm fan from a Pentium 150
. With that combination, I was able to almost get the computer stable with the FSB at 220 MHz, something that was far from possible with the stock setup.
The second part of my hardware adventures (
) was when I built my new computer last week. The only problem I had with it was that it refused to POST when I had the normal Molex connector plugged into the board but not the floppy connector. I guess if you plug one in, it needs both. So far it's been running fast and quiet, MUCH quieter than my old 2500+, and that's with a noisy chipset fan spinning at over 7,000 rpm. Once I get some PC4000 DDR, I'll be pushing the CPU much higher
. The heatsink was much bigger than I thought it would be; it's extremely big, but it does work well
. As for the bear in the first picture, I added it so that it would look the same as the pictures I took of my Athlon XP back in 2003
. I don't have any pictures of the 6800 GT in the P3 600
because my camera sucks and my parents are away on a trip with their camera
