The Ressurection of an Antique

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello Everyone,

** As title states this is a ressurection, not a complete build but i wanted to post for those good ol' memories **

My first "real" computer i got bought from Bestbuy back in the day 2003?? Lovely a1520n from HP. It got passed aside when playing games became to much for it maybe around Diablo II ? Ever since then I've played on my SIG rig. This bad boy got donated to a friend for his HTPC use and hes since started using his Wife's laptop for the streaming I understand why.

My plans are to turn it into a FREE NAS box as another donor computer wouldn't fit the bill ( RAM Limitations ) so I bring to you HP-NAS. It came back with loads of dust and some noisy fans.

Custom Cooler on the old 8500GT constant 12v supply (( don't think I'll be needing this once changed from Vista to FREENAS ))
