This is my old socket 462 AMD K7 machine, is one of the best made, quality, speed, stability. Is close to be completed, just need better CPU that can go up to 2.8GHz 24/7 stable, and some front panels. The pictures are very old, but i will make new ones some day... I need to say i did pay for the mod of the case only for the plastic window material, the paint and the charger cooler on the top, all others things in the mod are from junk...

The mod on the CM case is inspired by the love for american muscle cars. Dodge Charger 1969 R/T mod, the Jet 7 on the top is as engine charger, the pipes on the bottom, are exhausts, the red line on the back is the same as the R/T Charger cars...


The CPU - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

AthlonXP-M 2600+ that processor is unlocked and have all the goodness over the desktop version, better crystal that runs cooler, on lower voltage, it can last up to more temperatures compared to the desktop, it have unlocked multiplier meaning it can OC like hell. So mine get stable on 2.6GHz not 2600+ meaning it can RIP most Pentium 4s out there die to the better IPC and architecture...

The motherboard - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

ABIT NF7-S V2 is the best board ever made for socket 462, it uses only high quality japan caps Rubycon, and other quality transistors, mosfets and more. Modders and overclockers did modded bioses from DFI LanParty Ultra B, and after that the ABIT is able to get way better OC + is very solid and stable board, not like the LanParty only problems... Is important the V2 on that board, bcoz the first revision uses inferior components, and that make the board bad.

The Video card - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

HIS Radeon HD 3850 AGP That card is the most powerful for the AGP slot, it rocks one games like Crysis 1, Batman Arkham Asylum, GTA San Andreas, and others. Very nice card to have in machine like that to boost movies, games or whatever i trow on it, it works like charm + the cooler is very effective and make the card not to melt bcoz of the AGP bridge chip that run on vulcanic temps...

-

The HDD - ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Seagate Barracuda IDE 500GB server edition, the disk is 500GB and is ATA that is rare + is nice to have big capacity of old tech, too bad i can`t find the very last ATA disk 700GB Seagate IDE. It works very fast for ATA disk, but at some point i will move it to be storage, and SSD for the system to be faster, bcoz mechanical disks are so slow compared to all other parts...

-

The coolers - ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Cooler Master Aero 7+, ThermalTake Sonic Tower Rev1. For years the Aero 7+ was my primary cooler die to not know what is better + it was more then enough, but when i did start to OC to the very max the unlocked AThlon the CM was not the best solution. So i did get then the TT Sonic Tower, that is able to spread all the heat so much better then the Aero 7, + it looks so much better like V8 engine...

-

The Audio card - ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Creative Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS SB0350 sounds so much better then all other brands, realtek, nvidia, c media and others. It makes the music with bases, tremble and to sound lot much better the all other things i did tried. The games sounds like charm, the audio sounds like club, the movies sound like cinema...

-

The Power Supply - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

EnermaX Liberty ELT400AWT 400W is great unit, before that PSU i did got problems with old Fortron, TT Xaser 480W and more and the machine was not stable, but when i did put that unit it did have much voltage on the +5 rails and it get the ATi Radeon HD 3850 AGP + AthlonXP on 2.6GHz no problem, very nice power supply but i don`t expect lesser from EnermaX...


the Intel lan card is retarded stove it get hot like active vulcano, even without to be used, so i did put on the chip chipset heatsink from some dead MB..... Most funny thing is my every single AMD machine have Intel lan card on it, even now the AM4 have Intel lan lol...

To fully complete that system i will need better binned K7 processor that can go over 2.6GHz, front panels such as Cooler Master Musketeer, Creative Audigy 2 ZS, and that is about it, i did get the TT sonic tower, so no need of cooler now...

Does the spoiler make it run Crysis faster?

No but the insane OC makes it to run Crysis, and is even more brutal in the next revision of this system..

Builded not many, but i have parts for like 20 computers here, dont assemble them, bcoz i dont have the space for them. Still i have one socket 7 machine working, just need to add to it HDD (and i have 1GB WD caviar, or Seagate 500MB) video card something like S3 or nVIDIA, and that it is, but i will do that at some point...

The final look of that machine is on the 3 pictures after the tower cooler, that is on use at the moment...

There is also socket 939 Opteron + LanPArty Ultra-D NF4 UT inside of the CM Dodge case, bcoz the 462 is in the HP XW... But i don`t have pictures of that system at the moment.. ooo and one DELL Optiplex GX150.....
