  1. overclock your pc to increase the heat output and thus you get heat while gaming
  2. as a guy who play minecraft in a 2006 rig, i can confirm this
  3. it turned out to be a 3395, also as i was taking it apart i was surprised on how repairable this thing is, you can strip this thing to the bone(btw,nice 3dfx cup)
  4. FEAR ME MORTALS (btw this isn't the legendary 3310,I believe it's a 3350 or something like that, I'm too lazy to check :b)
  5. Its amazing on how looks can be deceiving, a friend of mine has a hp pavillon p7-1007c with a dual core phenom, he always treated it like shit just cuz it looked low end, he destroyed the ram sticks(honestly who does that?) and stripped it completely, i looked around the internet on some info and apparently you can install a six core AMD 1045t and 16 gigs of ddr3 ram... holy f**k...so he has had a sleeper(if you can consider it a sleeper) and he has never even known,so now we are in the process of getting parts for it, he offered me that pc a while back for free and i declined it and i regret doing that but man... never judge a pc by its case 😅

      Yeah...I think Linus has like 3 vids where he stuffs things like a Core i9 or a Threadripper into a beige chassis from 1997 or something.

      @Schnoz Linus stuffs high end components in old computers, while the pavilion im talking about has the stock motherboard(which surprisingly can handle a 6 core 1045t)

      @Some guy on the forums Be sure that the thing can handle it though. The power delivery and cooling systems probably weren't meant for triple the cores.

  6. i don't have pictures of it right now but i have what i believe is an ATI Radeon 2400 XT or ATI Radeon HD 3450 (Dell OEM Units), i really can't tell the difference between the two, i will post a pic of it later

    I finally finished fully upgrading this noice Dell Precision T3400, now it has some pretty decent hardware,it didnt come with a power supply so a got one from a friend who was selling his(it was literally brand new), so far this is what it is packing 


    CPU:Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 @ 2.66GHz

    Ram Corsair 8GB DDR2 Ram @ 800 MHz

    Power Supply: EVGA N1 400 Watt power supply

    Storage: a mere 250 gb hard  drive for now

    GPU: EVGA GTX 950 (i was brand new never used, it is still under waranty)


    i also went ahead and bought the upgraded cooler for it and my main rig(Precision 390)



    Here's a pic of the insides, i took this pic before i got the GTX 950 for it(gpu in the bottom pic is a xfx 8600 gts), also a little fun fact on picture on the very top if this post, the CPU on the corner of the rig is a Xeon X5355, i just placed that there to make people think that is was the core 2 quad(sneek 100)

    1. Schnoz


      Nice! Just curious, could we see the insides?

  8. This is my Nvidia Geforce 8600 GTS made by XFX, this is the first old graphics card that i bought, and its the one that has started my liking to collect old GPU's, when i got it i looked like if it was left sitting outside for a good while(hence the discoloration of the plastic and the bit of rust on the screws), but that hasn't stopped it, when i went ahead to test it on my test bench it was shorting something out but after i cleaned it thoroughly it worked, to this day it runs like a champ, and its overclockable
  9. Thank you so much for making my day:


  10. Most modern GPU's wont reach full core clock until they are under load.(like a heavy game)
  11. And the gpu doesn't show up in device manager in another computer
