Building a new computer
Unfortunately this computer is not for me :( Our family friend has just bought a new computer system and everything that belongs to it and so they asked me if I could set it up for them. of course I said yes as I like to help and I like to do things like this.
When I arrived at the scene we were all in for a little surprise. Even when I entered the soon-to-be-computer-room the number of boxes seamed a little high. When we started to pull out the computer chassis out of one box it was extremely light and it became clear that they (computer store EnaA) only sent computer components. So I had to go back home to fetch some tools and thermal paste to be able to build the new machine. All went well, well almost. I was again angry at the stupid connectors that connect front panel chassis things to motherboard. Why do they have all these little connectors? So frustrating! It would be so much easier if they just had some standard single and bigger connector instead of this mess.
Computer is now running and it is running very fast and quiet. Here is a list of components:
- CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3000+
- Motherboard: Gigabyte K8NS Pro
