    Wow, you look away from this thread for a few days and you miss like 10 pages. Damn. And I see you're back at discussing beverages again ^^

    Anyway, have had some issues with my mITX build as my case has yet to arrive. Went ahead and took a picture without any card this time: http://img535.imageshack.us/img535/7569/img0493bp.jpg

    In the meanwhile I give you the first computer I ever assembled:

    Pretty huh? I took the PSU out to power my mITX build while I wait for that damn case... Anyway, guess the specs?

    Arctic Cooling heatsink, or looks very similiar.
    s-ATA 1.5Gbps interface.
    GPU could be anything from that angle.

    Guessing AMD-system, and you took the stock-fan and put it as rear-exhaust!

    Close! It is the Artic Freezer Pro 7, I'll give you that, but it is a Pentium 4 based system. And I'm fairly certain I started with a Radeon card (the R600 if I remember correctly) but it's a 6600GT sitting in it atm. The MoBo is an AOpen i915Ga-E but I'm not entirely sure about the CPU. I know it's a Pentium 4 LGA775, and I'm fairly certain it supports HT (remember bragging about having a "dual core"... oh the days). And let's not forget the 512Mb RAM x2 from A-Data.

    Was hard to tell from the picture^^.
    I have the second revision of the arctic cooling freezer pro 7, thinking of using it over the NH-D14 again, actually.

    But it tastes miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiles better than this shit that I found in a store yesterday. It tasted like yuck. Seriously. Americans and their overhyped disgusting food/drinks D: (and apologise for the crappy pic; Phone-pic; no smartphone [refuse] and it's been waterdamaged).
    WHAT!?
    Mountain Dew tastes amazing, you silly Swedes.

    Fanta Fläder and the original Swedish version of the Vanilla coke.
    The Mountain Dew tasted sugar through-and-through. I could feel my internal organs screaming at me while drinking it.

    I'll have to admit, I bought two kegs of Trocadero bottles while I was in sweden. It tastes delicious, and it's nowhere to be found in Finland.

    I love vanilla coke.. They discontinued it in Canada. I always buy several cases whenever I go to the US. If only I could order it as easily as computer parts..

    I'm using the Rev2 Freezer 7 in my big server, and the original F7 in my ISA server. xD

    As soon as I read "worst soft drink" I immediately thought of Pepsi Blue.
    Sure didn't last long in this province, did it.

    The first and last time I had it was from the Esso station near the old bridge (Dartmouth side). I think i took two drinks, decided it was the worst thing ever made, and threw it on top of the Scotiabank building. -_-

    Cherry, I never really connected with.

    Some Swedish stores import the American Vanilla and Cherry together with Mountain Dew and Rootbeer (another horrible drink).
    I chose the wrong kind yesterday. The Dew. D:

    But the original Swedish Vanilla was better than the American, although the American is by no means bad. I even found a store who sold Coke Zero Vanilla. Or Coke Vanilla Zero, whichever.

    Ugh. Found Cherry Pepsi the other day.

    Hm, I have only ever drank the 1,5L bottle ones, maybe they're different from the canned ones then.
    Also, I found a can of Mountain Dew code red in Sweden. I'm scared of drinking it.

    Really? That system is probably like 2 years old and you're already building a new one for $1000-1500? I wish I had that money...

    The 1055T was released April 27, 2010.

    But the upgrade is pointless- Upgrading a mid-range CPU to a mid-range CPU, (now) low-end GPU to a mid-range GPU.
