    BFG EX-1000... Anyone still using one of these?

    There's already an official thread about this power supply from back in 2009, but I didn't want to go resurrecting that ancient of a thread just to ask a silly question such as this. but, curiosity is getting the better of me. Is anyone out there still using one of these supplies? I'm currently...

    The 2016 Post Pics of your Rig Thread!

    I present to you a slightly modded case from an HP NetServer E60, circa 1998, stuffed with modern hardware that was either cheap or free. (with guest appearances by my recently resurrected iPod Mini (sporting a 32GB SDHC card in an adapter) and a lovely figurine from the inner depths of...

    So I have a SunFire T2000 - what now?

    ===== Ultra 10 owner here, SPARC isn't dead, just full of bugs on the Linux end. Oracle recently released a version of Linux based on RHEL that is made for the Sun4v architechture, meaning any UltraSPARC T1 and up should be able to run it...

    Post your "Ghetto Mod" pics

    I wonder if it'll get me any extra food stamps if I say that the heatsink on the X-Fi's SoC is a US Quarter?

    Post your "Ghetto Mod" pics

    This isn't ghetto per-se, but I figure this is worthy of posting in here instead of the 2015 rig thread for the reason that it's pretty much comprised of old parts. I threw this together with some slight chopping of the original case up on the PSU shelf and some drilled holes for the wonderful...

    your hardware reminds me of that of the person that convinced me to look for a dual-socket motherboard in the first place. same type of machine... but looking back, their machine had some much different heatsinks on the CPUs therein. is that board meant to go with that chassis? that may explain...

    Pictures Of Your Dually Rigs!

    Hello one and all again! I posted my dual-CPU rig in here back in november 2013. it's been a year and some months since then, and I've gone ahead and done some minor upgrades to it. Just thought I'd post some pics since, although it's an old sucker and DEFINITELY slower than most peoples'...

    I'm not saying to do it now. I'm planning on this to last me a few more years yet. once the price of the board and CPUs along with the RAM goes down, it's going to be quite the field day for me at the races.

    it's 3 times slower than everyone's laptop! but it gets the job done, and that's what's important at the end of the day. next build is going to be a dual socket G34 with a couple of 16-core Opteron 6300s in it, when money allows for it-- and I'm looking at that to last me someplace in the...

    I have an oldie but goodie. mm-mm-mmm! that bonafide 2006 juicy goodness! I always get people asking me what I do with such a computer-- I tell them I use it like anyone would use a normal computer with 4 cores-- but it just uses a lot more power... the system uses 300W with both CPUs...
