This machine was built around a friends i7-920 chip they handed off during an upgrade and the still working parts of my ancient Aspire m3100. Along with that chip came a damaged MOBO with bents pins in the CPU socket. After a fair amount of work I got it running with some mix matched ram and later upgraded to the listed G.Skill set. Been adding parts and overclocking as needed to try to keep up with the current games. I use it mainly for gaming, some how it manages fallout 4 at max settings just fine. I'm pretty sure its been well over a decade since i've been able to do a build from scratch, but the keep what still works, upgrade what needs it most, makes it a continuous project that never seems to cost too much at any given time. And yes I'd love to be able to upgrade to something along the lines of a 5820 or 6600[but i don't see that happening anytime soon]
More picture to come when I get around to pulling this mess back out from under my desks[why pay a premium for a L shaped desk when you can just shove two together, man do I sound cheap].
EDIT: Pics are up... enjoy, and try not to laugh to hard at it and the NINE fans that keep this running cold. oh and I didn't think to get the canned air out until after I took the pics, so please excuse the dust.
