Well, it gets Sprocket all wet anyway....
New parts arrived yesterday, it was like Christmas in April except for the lack of decorations and insipid music.
Pictured above are the motherboard (Gigabyte GA-K8N Ultra-9), 4x512MB Patriot HP RAM(2,3,2,5 @1T), Athlon 64 3500+ CPU (90nm Winnie) and an Arctic Freezer 64 HSF.
Not shown are the XFX 6800GT (PCI-e) or the Plextor PX-17SA Dual layer DVD-RW.
Tomorrow (Wed.) is my day off so I can begin the transformation.
First I have to strip out the Chaintech 754 setup from the Silverstone case and build it into a new box- my brother has bought Sprocket's guts for his boys new PC.
I hope to have all that up and running by tomorrow night.
Then I can begin to reassemble my baby in her new glory.
The first build will be pretty quick and dirty cause I have some more changes in mind- the new Antec P-180 case looks very interesting and I'm teetering on the edge of watercooling again, so I can't (won't) really tart up the wiring till I decide what to do ( the Antec has a completely different layout than my current TJ-06).
The watercooling is more for noise prevention ( which is the entire point of the Antec case) than performance (see no point in OCing this setup really), so the Freezer 64 is just a (temporary) experiment.
Updates will follow as time allows.
