I highly recommend Zalman CPU fans. An excellent investment of ~$30. No problems with overheating and no need to underclock... I use them on athlon 64 boxes.

Microcenter has them, and i would imagine, any reputable online store.

I bought a good fan which is on it... and I have 2 other 80mm case fans which I put in as mods... The chip didn't do it originally, it's just that it's slowly dying... it still locks up at 1.1ghz on occasion.

I'm not. I actually still use (on some but not all my machines) and love OS 9.


LOL
I meant X as in "whatever".. not as in OS X.

Oy.

3.5MHz Z80, 8K ROM and 1K RAM, though mine was tricked out with the 16K RAM upgrade.


My first also. I had the 16k expansion and thermal printer. I think I still have some issues of Sinclair magazine. I still have my computer also, but it doen't work anymore. I have thought about building one from NOS kits online.

That's right, a CDC Cyber 170 running PLATO, circa 1980... Everyone with their C64s and I was running a touchscreen terminal linked to the system that spawned most of the community features of today's internet:
- instant messaging
- threaded message boards (like this one!)
- email
- lotus notes (crap that it is, directly decended from PLATO Notes)
- multiplayer games
- the first ever 3d 1st-person shooter
- open-source development

Got a fully-functional Mac Plus (1MB) that I sometimes boot to play Putt-Putt. :)
How many 19 year old computers do you have lying around that still work?

Pentium 4 w/ HT 3.20 GHz
1GB Ram
Windows XP
200GB HD
DVD Burner
CD-RW
9 Media Card Reader

I can remember my first computer. 33MHz / Win 3.1 / 220mb HD / 4 mb ram / 3.5" drive / NO CD-Rom, I had to purchase that and put in myself and I think it was a 2X. / 9600 bps modem...... And it cost as much if not more than the computer I have now.
