Good luck with the new build, let us know how it goes or if we can assist in any way
Well... if I'd had to make a "what can possibly go wrong" list, I could write a book with all problems that I can think of, but I would NEVER suspect something like this:http://www.geekstogo...an-a-mobo-hold/
Yes, I do have these plastic... thingies (standoffs) in my old PC and NO, looking at the tiny metal "screw-extensions" did NOT give me the idea that these little thing are supposed to carry the weight of the MoBo as standoffs. This + not one word about it in any manual gave me some headache.
BUT... it's done
I'm writing this from my new machine. Everything works, all systems clear, Core temperature at 35°C.
One word - WOW!
After 10 years of stuttering scrolling through websites, stuttering YouTube videos, saving the life of my Pentium 4 which heatsink bracket broke off leaving if literally hangin on one bracket with almost no contact with the CPU and a couple of days running at 95°C (it's still working, BTW) and 3 years of torturing a GeForce 3 card at 1920x1080 resolution ... finally, my computer isn't the bottleneck of my working speed
Can't wait to launch PhotoShop with 1GB DDR3 RAM on the GFX card (comparing to 64MB RAM on the old one).
And the fresh smell of air flowing through a new circuit board... ahh... priceless
...or rather... ~$500, for that matter
There are downsides, though - I feel like a stranger in Windows 7. Where is... everything? It looks so pretty, but... it's not there
