Former Lurker - Brief Intro

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Greetings. I'm a grey-haired enthusiast that enjoys building and tinkering with PCs. My first exposure to computers was helping my father type out 80 Column Punch Cards for a FORTRAN class he was attending 2 nights a week for his degree, circa 1967, 1968. These cards would be fed into an IBM 1130 Mainframe, with 4KB of RAM...

After researching and lurking a bit, I decided to migrate my current system from a CM Storm Scout 2 to the HAF-XB. The thermals are somewhat better than the Storm Scout 2, as I can now run @ 4.4GHz with approximately the same temperatures as I had running @ 4.3GHz in the Storm Scout 2.

Just thought I'd say "hello" without getting long-winded.
