Okay here we go! Finally got some stuff in today .
I found 2x 1GB sticks of DDR2 ram, nothing special, but it works fine! Also got in the E8400
Motherboard has been in the case for over 2 years, so it's a bit dusty .
After the dusting.
I decided to give the northbridge a cleaning for a fresh start. Unfortunately the SB heatsink is absolutely glued to the chip so I decided not to push it any farther.
Got to love this stuff .
CPU heatsink needs some love...
