If you remember my old thread about juicing up my Atom:
My Server Transformation
That Atom board has passed on. Died of heat exhaustion. I tried CPR, but he was dead at the scene.
Now, to lay in its stead, is this baby:
ECS A740GM-M Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ 2.70GHz (OEM)
and for h/s:
Rosewill RCX-Z1 (recommended by Trotter)
I transferred the SuperTalent 1GB DDR2 667 and all my drives over.
I have Ubuntu on it now, running off a Wintec 8GB USB Flash.
I de-riveted the motherboard plate out of a busted NZXT Duet. By busted, I mean that so many things are broken off, nearly unusable. Had it in my basement for years anyway. So why not, right?
So it remains of this so far:
Messy, yes, to stay that way, no. Next step, I'm fastening that to the previous 4 bolts on the inner side of the desk. As you can see two of them in this picture.
I'll have to do the painting later, as it's very damp around here. Won't dry the paint well.
