I do have an old Barracuda ATA IV 40 GB. Looks pretty cool with the metal shield on the back.

It's beautiful to see that it's finally working well. The Pentium 4 EE runs quite hot, and the fan is indeed a jet engine. Those are secondary, however, since this thing is finally running Windows XP! Again, thank you so much, @SenKa, for bringing this project to fruition!

 

Some of you may have noticed the DVD-RW certification on the disc drive. There were a few small changes.

 

I noticed that this mobo had two SATA ports. Booting from IDE wasn't working for some reason, so I swapped out the malfunctioning IDE CD drive and 200 GB WD 7200RPM IDE HDD with a SATA DVD drive and a WD Red 7200 RPM 4 TB from my old desktop. It's noticeably (as in at least three times) faster when installing Windows XP than the previous Sony VAIO rig which used an IDE CD drive and HDD. The CMOS battery is almost dead and needs to be replaced, and the chipset fan is loud af, but for now, I'm just happy that I can finally have a working rig. 

 

Update: The CMOS battery has been replaced and the VRM cooling has been changed.

 

Specs:

CPU: Pentium 4 HT EE "Gallatin" 3.4 GHz 2.5M cache (512 KB L2, 2 MB L3), 800 MHz FSB

GPU: Nvidia RIVA TNT2 M64 32 MB

Mobo: Intel 875p

HDD: WD Red 4 TB SATA 7200 RPM

ODD: SATA DVD-RW drive

PSU: Custom 250W

Cooler: Custom (copper base plate, 4x copper heatpipes, 2x heatsink fin arrays)

Messing with the OOBETimer entry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WPAEvents will bypass this in my experience.

Then there is something wrong. I worked *extensively* with the Shuttle XPCs, and they are, at least out of the box, dead silent. I have a C2D era one and even under load it's whisper quiet.
