    Inspired by @Papusan's post HERE

    I was thinking it would be cool to see some old-school setups (desktop or laptops).

    I'll start with my first watercooling setup (circa 2005):

    CPU: AMD Opteron 165 (first dual core cpu and an amazing jump in performance from single core setups that I had in the past)
    Motherboard: DFI Lanparty NF4 Ultra-D (at least I think)
    GPU: ATI Radeon X800 PRO AGP
    Case: Antec SLK3000-B
    CPU block: mcw6002-64
    GPU block: dangerden acetal maze4gpu
    Pump: D5
    Radiator: BIP2 xflow
    Fans: 2 sanyo denki fans (they move some serious air)
    Misc: 7/16s tubing

    Wish I had more pictures of it (and better quality too). Also going to see if I have pictures of my first laptop (Clevo with a P4 northwood cpu, but I can't recall the rest of the specs).

    Hah tough crowd here.
    Here was my next setup a year after the one above:

    CPU: Core 2 Duo E6600
    Motherboard: Asus P5W DH Delux
    GPU: XFX 8800 GTS
    Case: Gigabyte 3d aurora
    CPU block: Swiftech of some type
    Pump: swiftech mcp355 with an acetyl top
    Radiator: BIP2 xflow
    Fans: 2 sanyo denki fans (they move some serious air)
    Misc: 7/16s tubing

    This was the first system I really got into overclocking ram. I believe the above was running Mushkin Blackline. Really sad I didn't save any screenshots from the benches and stuff. I also had a WD Raptor or two in that system.

    I have been scouring my photo library to find images of my old gear. But that was before the advent of digital cameras really! ha ha.

    I do have a TT Xaser III that I have for sale but it's not moving since shipping is a metric crapload, so I think I will build my son a gaming system out of it once prices reduce to normal.
