<<<<<<Update>>>>>> - I have replaced the Diablotek PSU with a Corsair CX500M- The system is Much quieter now, however, the CX500 comes only with a 2x Sata power cable. So, until I order a 4x or 6x cable, I'm running it with no power to the CD or the 1tb HDD.
This system was originally built in 2010. I used it for awhile but eventually passed it on to my dad, he used it up until last summer. I took it back when he complained of some issues with getting anything to display. It sat in my closet, waiting to be fixed, until Oct/Nov last year.
The Motherboard, CPU, Ram, HDD, Case, PS and CD are original parts. When I got into repairing this system, I got the issue taken care of and decided to upgrade it a bit and use it as a HTPC type system. It is currently in my living room, hooked up to a 51" 1080p Samsung Plasma TV. It looks good on the big screen.
Some notes on this system.... I have unlocked the 4th core on this CPU, so it is labeled as a Phenom II x4 B50, clocked at the stated 3.2GHz. I have also added a 1tb HDD that I had sitting around, I can't remember if it's Seagate or WD, but it is a 7200rpm 64mb cache model of one of those brands.
As you can see from the pictures, the PS has suffered and the whole system could use a thorough dusting. The PS has NO 6/6+2/8 pin connectors, so I've resorted to the not as good connection. Converting the 4 molex to two(2) six pins for the 270x. Seems to work, but the PS is the next thing to be replaced in this system, followed by better Ram.
