Retro Sleeper Build

Shadowlyn
 Share

Just wanted to share my Sleeper PC that I finished yesterday.  Inspiratuon came from watching some of the retro builds on the channel.  Case was a ATX case that I bought in 1999 for my first PC Build.  Purchased from Multiwave while stationed in Okinawa.  Only modification was that i had to drill a hole in plastic fan case so cord for new coolmaster 80mil fan could reach mother board.  Ran Cinabench and PC test on GPU UserBenchmarks and all thermals were great.  The only thing left is to order an adapter to get the floppy drive to work.

 

Parts:

 

AMD Ryzen 5 2600x

 

Asrock B450 Pro4 AMD AM4 ATX Motherboard

 

Inland Premium 512GB SSD M.2 INTERNAL

I have a suggestion, scrub your case with chlorine bleach and it will be as white as factory new.

Bleach sounds like a win, I might try that on my old pre 2000's cases.

 

I heard that some kind of tooth whitening gel, plastic bag, and sunlight would do it. Sounds weird though.

It was never White it has always been a Beige or an Off white with Dark Gray trim.  The damage to the inside was due getting a few inches of water from a Hurricane when the house flooded.
