Some of the hardware updates from 1.1.04
9.1.04 I recieved the computer
modding package from Microplex. Alot of mods were ordered
and several other gadgets as well. These will be installed
when I have picked up everything. This is the least important
package of the total five packages I have ordered for
this update process. The real stuff is coming soon.
12.1.04 I picked up three
more packages! The motherboard, the cpu, the powersupply
and two 80x80 fans. It's a lot of hardware in my room
now waiting to be installed. One more package to go.
??.1.04 I picked up the
last order.. the most expensive one. So many things that
they came in three seperate packages. Graphic card, computer
case and sidewindow door, two hdd's, cpu cooler and misc
??.11.05 Bought a 320gb
S-ATA drive, two green UV reactive S-ATA cables and a
fan that had the wrong finish..
??.07.09 Bought all parts for the RUSH computer, then I realised I needed some S-ATA cables angled the other way to connect all the drives, the gpu card's in the way.. how shitty.
??.07.09 Bought the cables, everything is working!
??.08.09 Bought additional cooling units, like the hdd fan, copper chipset sinks.
16.02.10 Swapped the WD black 500gb, with a new WD black 1tb.
??.12.10 When my computer
said goodbye last fall, I sent in my graphics card, cpu,
memory and motherboard. They tested them and noticed the
motherboard had a disfunctional PCI-E slot. And the graphics
card had a dead fan. So I got all new up to date hardware
from them, because they didn't sell compatible system
components anymore.. Voila, free hardware upgrade!
From: ASUS P5Q-EM motherboard, 2gb DDR2 PC8500 twinmos
memory, Intel Core™ 2 Duo E8400 3.0GHz, GeForce

To: ASUS P7H55-M PRO motherboard, DDR3 1066MHz 4GB memory,
Intel Core™ i5 Dual Core 3.2Ghz, Geforce GTX 460
Not bad! But hey.. when I recieved the motherboard, one
of the socket pins were bent. So I used a knife and carefully
aligned the pin backwards. I assembled the hardware together,
and now everything works! The whole system runs alot cooler,
and are more silent than before. Very satisfied. But my
monitor didn't bear the transportation, so I'm borrow
a tv from a friend for now.
