Does this count as "old" ?

I salvaged some old parts from work to build a PC for my kid.

z77-i mobo with i7 3770K and 8gb of DDR3 1600mhz. 

I also added a (not so old) RX 580 gpu.

I tested everything and also did a small cpu overclock to 4,4ghz

Works great and the performance was surprisingly good.

Cinebench 770, Time Spy 4200, Firestrike 11500.

What's the row of capacitors on the left edge of the first pic? Is that a separate PCB?

That would be fine too next time. I could use the cooler for something if I can't get "The oven trick" to work.

One of these days I'll get an LGA 775 SLI rig.

I'm thinking about building one from that MSI board I pictured.  Just have to find the right GPU's to use.

That'd be awesome

That is the VRM module.

I believe that because this is an ITX board there was not enough room so they built a separate PCB for the VRMs and attached and connected it to the mobo.

I think it looks great and it has a nice blue heat sink on it as well.

I have been looking for a way to get into late 90's early 2000's retro computing but didn't want to have another huge desktop system.  Trying to find the perfect laptop has been a chore but I think I succeeded today.  $40 and 3 hours at a State auction and I have this beauty.

Anyone guess what it is?  I'll give you a hint.  Under the heat sink on the right is this...

That's a very weirldly rotated GPU chip. Most of the time, I see the chip rotated at either 45- or 90-degree intervals. Just curious, what are the specs of the rest of the system?

The whole machine is weird.  It also has a Core 2 Duo T7600 @ 2.33 Ghz.  It originally shipped with 2gb DDR2-667 in dual channel and two 100gb HDDs in RAID 0. Both the RAM and HDD had been removed.  I was able to find one stick in my rummage pile for testing and everything seems to work so far.  I did have to order HDD caddies.  Why do people throw these out??

Generally if I'm getting rid of a laptop, I get rid of the whole laptop minus a hard drive.

I understand that completely.  But why not take the time to put the empty caddy back?  They can be areal pain to find replacements sometimes.
