    Unsuccessful mods - GT 550m MXM-II and HD8850m MXM-II, because of which lost interest in the Quad mod, which was later proven working by FrankendPad modders :) Another one - M4400's RGB LED (LTN154CT04-D01), the gap between CCFL laptop (what 5920G is) and this display was too big to overcome, even with a very custom cable. Like cut both in between and solder everything while mixing and matching custom.

    Well, it's time to move on and this long standing project came to an end :( Awesome (more than) 6 years, none the less! Kinda lost enthusiasm at the end so I haven't tested the water part thoroughly, some day I might see if I can break some records :D It was quite promising on air alone... but yeah, lost steam... and I gave it to my mom :D Till then, I have a new toy to play with.

    If you wonder how promising it was on air:


    Yes, that's a world record and the only additional cooling was the NotePal U3.

    Custom-Built Desktop

    The main rig; the digital hub; where the horsepower is. December 2011 - present.

    If I'm at home, this is the computer I'm usually using.

    Core i5-2500K
    ATI Radeon 6870 (Sapphire)
    8 GB DDR3 (2x4)
    Crucial MX-100
    Toshiba 2 TB, 7200 RPM HDD
    WD 2 TB, 5400 RPM HDD (backup)
    4x USB 3.0 (Etron)
    Corsair TX650 PSU
    Blu-Ray Reader
    DVD Burner (second ODD)
    Antique Sony floppy drive (aesthetic)
    Antec P280 case
    Dell U2412M monitor, 1920x1200 IPS (also connected to laptops occasionally)
    Windows XP Pro x64 (primary)
    Linux Mint 17 (secondary)

    I bought the (originally two) WD hard drives at Best Buy shortly after the flood, as they were actually the best buy for once. I didn't know it was possible.

    Dell Inspiron 1520

    Old workhorse of a laptop; what I bought after joining NBR. July 2007 - present.

    I still use this laptop for video/audio calls, as well as occasionally for light use around the house where I don't need lots of power. And it still makes appearances at LANs on occasion to stand in for friends' more recent but less powerful iGPU machines.

    Core 2 Duo T7500
    nVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT (DDR2)
    4 GB DDR2 (2x2)
    Seagate HDD, 160 GB *
    4x USB 2.0
    Broadcom Wireless G 1390
    1280x800 screen (glossy) &#8224;
    Windows XP SP3

    * - I switch hard drives occasionally; my preferred is a Hitachi 7K320. I'm considering putting a spare Intel 80 GB SSD in one of my laptops.
    &#8224; - The original non-glossy screen died, so it got replaced with the glossy spare one I had laying around.

    While I currently use this one about 50:50 with my newer laptop, it's hard to say how long that will be the case. Nevertheless, I suspect I will keep it long-term as the first computer that was solely my own.

    I've OC'ed the GPU to 600/400 from the original 475/400. It never took RAM overclocking well, so I don't do that anymore. Surprisingly, the original GPU survives.

    I do hope to put a Core 2 Extreme in it at some point despite its successor having arrived, but that project failed the first time and thus became low priority.

    HP EliteBook 8740w

    Core i5 520M
    ATI FirePro M7820 (MXM 3.0)
    4 GB DDR3 (2x2)
    Hitachi 7K500, 250 GB (7200 RPM)
    2 x USB 3.0, 2 x 2.0
    1920x1200 screen (matte)
    Intel WiFi 6300 AGN (3x3)
    230W PSU
    Windows 7 Enterprise

    The new powerful laptop, intended as a LAN machine either for me when out, or friends with less powerful machines when visiting.
