No it wasnt. See THIS POST as to why.

Trust me, if I could have gotten that, it'd have been gone! This thing was completely worthless as it was. I did sell the motherboard out of it (X7DAL w/ 2x x5450's & 32gb RAM as a workstation in a normal case)....which paid for the things I bought for it plus some, I'm still up about ~$200. I'm a little more clever than you think...you underestimate me!!

Some more stuff.... Rubber grommets....and some more pushbuttons.



More switches. I doubt I use all these....but it was cheaper to buy a 4 pack than it was to buy just one or two....



Junk amassing!





Nothing this awesome could be completed without an hour meter!



So far I've still been paid to take all this stuff......and the fun hasn't even begun yet!

That's how we know the project has truly begun.

Those blue DPDT toggle switches are real nice, so I'm sure you'll find a use for them, eventually.

I bought similar ones from Radio Shack before it closed. They were supposed to have a 50% off sale, but apparently not the one I visited (said they weren't gonna close then... which was a lie - they closed 2 weeks afterwards.) Were kinda pricey, but at least they are good switches, unlike their slide switches. Those were quite crappy - contacts would oxidize and not make good connections anymore after a few years.
