5775c and a 390x with 32gb ram. i'll eventually get windows on it once i get a ssd for it, but in the mean time for a lil Christmas project. i think a headless Linux box would be neat.



Sorry about the late response... Moved to a farm or what its called.... Getting speedy internet is a task here wink.gif Damn.....


Hi,

Yes of course... We usually just drills holes i a squared piece of plastic/pvc 5mm thick... Use a platform from a case to get you holes right. Then use cobber things for distance wink.gif

I use SSD's on everything. So far, the Corsair SATA-1 Refurbs seem to work fine 9 out of 10 times, the Intel SATA-1 Refurbs seem to work with some systems and not others, the Kingston V200/V300 seem fine in all setups. The later version Corsairs also seem okay in many setups.

However, with prices dropping so fast, you can get a NEW 120G or 60G for dirt cheap. I haven't tried those KingDian (or whatever) drives yet, but am tempted... 60G SSD for $28? Pretty good!

Hi Tex,


SSD's are fast and cheap in energy, but!! I've experienced hardware resets... lost mbr's or what its called. This may just be because of a late night fast reboot. of course I did this myself, but I never had the problem with the optical drives.


What du you think about that??? wink.gif

Hi TicToc,


Thanks... I'll try that... Or I just end the thread with the finished ToDo.. It's about that time I guess wink.gif
