    DB's First Time ... Can You Remember Yours?

    Small update on my hardware

    ... over the course of time (and PSU failure) I have upgraded some of it

    CPU ................ Prescott P4 3.0 running at 3.7Ghz
    Graphics ......... HIS IceQ3 HD 3850 AGP
    Power Supply .. Antec 750

    I know, a P4?? ... AGP !!???

    It's the best I can do right now and this gets me by on the new games with DX10 and Pixel Shader 3.0
    I see all the incredible work that is posted here with some really nice hardware and wish I could upgrade.
    ... I still like the case , I just would love to redo the hardware

    (I do "build" an LGA 1366 rig every so often from parts at New Egg

    Wow buddy that is some slick wiring! This is almost something to go by when wiring up a case.

    Thanks for bringing this back to light as its pretty sweet rig man!

    Thank you

    I started it in late 03, and was finished in 2004
    I think my inspiration for the wiring came from reading flying magazine and seeing the tied and branching wiring harness bundles in aircraft

    Working on getting it all routed like I want , still have more work to do on the backside (disregard the chipped paint on the motherboard tray, I'll be touching it up - made the hole bigger for better cooling and subsequent chipset heatsink additions)
    and I'm waiting on my graphics card to get here

    did some more work on the back wiring, but I need my graphics card to arrive before I can finalize it .. I did add some chipset heatsinks to the motherboard .. found a place on Ebay that can supply them for good prices .. $3 for 12 small 9mm square ones, $3 for 10 12mm ones .. all blue anodized (I made an offer)
    Cooling Day on eBay (they have other things too)
