Your P4C800 came with KZGs? The one I got came with OSTs for the VRM (and KZE for the 12v side) while the small caps are LTEC.

Strong board though, and I guess you had a Preshott, as mine sports a Northwood HT (2.8GHz) which runs cool

The A7N8X-X (made in 2004, IIRC) (The nForce2 version of X-series Asus) that I had, contained Chemi con KZGs, also Ost, by the slots, IIRC.

The A7V8X-X (made in 2003, IIRC) (The Via KT400 version of X-series Asus) that I had, contained Ost and a green Chemi con KZE.

edit: After the derpy incident, they offically named her "Muffins". Later in one of her few appearances, she officially had some connection to her name

generally...3yr-8yo girls

But the show was written very well. Cute humor and cultural references. It grew a HUGE fandom with well...adult males and females. So much so that even though pretty much every Hasbro show ends with max four seasons, this has grew to 8 seasons (ends with 9) and a box office movie (rotten tomatoes was about 47%, but individual reviews were 4/5)

What goon is referring to is bronies.

That's supposed to be a tombstone, by the way. Yea, I know, I'm terrible at text art.

Anyways.
Yesterdays free score was a 19" HannsG widescreen LCD monitor with missing bottom part of its stand. Not sure if it works yet. No bad caps, but I haven't tested it because it was wet and full of dirt/mud. Might have been stored outside too, as there is some corrosion on the metal parts inside. I'd be surprised if the screen is good, honestly. Just waiting for everything to dry before trying it.

Oh well, not like I needed any more of these anyways. But I just happened to notice it next to a trash can in a nearby neighborhood, resting on an oldschool CRT TV. Originally, I stopped to see if the CRT TV was busted open by copper scrappers, so that I could take the boards out of it. But it was intact. That's when I noticed this little LCD monitor resting on it.

It's a P4C800D as in Deluxe not the standard P4C800, and no it isnt a prescott it has the 3.4 Gallatin Extreme Edition overclocked to 4ghz so it's way hotter than a presscot.

When I get the time I'm going to restore it or maybe get Topcat to do it. It's the killer single socket 478 CPU system!

"To each his own..." Who's to say recapping PCB's is a worthwhile use of a person's time? Or, rescuing discarded kit?

A young lady, here, builds articulated wings for herself and clients. I'm amused at the level of effort that goes into some of that "stuff". And cost!

As far as "cartoons", I name all of my hosts after cartoon characters -- partly as a mnemonic aid ("George", "Jane", "Judy" and "Elroy" obviously have SOMETHING in common -- as do "Penelope", "Popeye", etc.) I can place icons of the various characters on a desktop as shortcuts to SSH/TELNET/FTP/WWW/etc. sessions hosted on each.

Unfortunately, it's getting to a point where new names (and SETS of names) are harder to come by! (three more "oddball" hosts looking for names, presently, before I can add them to my name server)

OTOH, a friend names his hosts after "paper products" (WTF??) and another names them after types of aircraft. No idea how they can extract any meaningful information from those sorts of names, though...

I have a Pentium D 965EE on a Dell with a huuuge copper heatsink. No matter what I can do or how much I clean it and apply nice As5, the fans always run insane

No worries, man. Even if you were, that wouldn't be the worst thing. I've seen much weirder fetishes online (particularly on DeviantArt, where I frequently browse for all kinds of photography and CG art).

And besides, "to each his own" as Curious Gorge said above. Who am I to judge anyone?
The tombstone was just meant for humor.

Meh. It's a 130W TDP chip that peaks at 143 Watts. Nothing a 4 heat pipe copper HS + 120 mm fan can't deal with.

but it can't. I install windows xp on it, fire up firefox and the fan revs up and down constantly. Latest bios too

Already have Fred/Barney/Wilma/Betty. Saving BamBam & Pebbles for any other "similar" machines that get added to the horde.

Picking "stand-alone" names is relatively easy. It's when you try to impose some order/structure on the names so that you can look at a box (or THINK about a box) and KNOW it's name, outright, that things get hard.

And, of course, getting the proper SPELLINGS for names can be tricky! E.g., Rosey vs. Rosie? Wayback vs. WABAC?

I got 5 HDDs for free a while ago but i thought i'd post them anyways.
Drives are...
Seagate ST3300831SCE 300GB
Seagate ST3500312CS 500GB (made June 2012)
Western Digital WD800BB 80GB
Maxtor D540X-4K 40GB
Maxtor E-H011-02-3056 40GB (made February 2003)

I'm not sure if any of these work because the only PC i have that can test most of these drives needs both a PSU and motherboard recap. But maybe someone can tell me how good they are or if they suck at all.

(These were all salvaged out of old DVRs)

Y'know, I was going to search a Gallatin chip at one time.

I'm pretty glad I didn't found any now that you said it.

Mine's a P4C800-E Deluxe as well. I have to say though, mine came in the worst state possible YET it managed to POST (semi warped board, bent to kingdom come NB heatsink and as I said it, a bunch of bulged LTEC caps)

I also managed to pair it with a ASUS A9550GE/TD 256MB AGP8x card (Radeon 9550 with some bizzare as hell DOS video mode) and it came out pretty sweet, with a 2.8GHz Northwood HT, 2GB of RAM and the stock Prescott cooler.

Uranium-235: Pentium D 965EE.... YIKES!

As if LGA775 Prescott chips weren't hot enough.

Yes, Pentium Ds are hot for having only 2 cores.

Warning, Q6600s are hot beasts, too, L O L But it don't show that much until you OC, but possible, even with a stock-VCore-core-OC, possibly even at just a measly 2.9 Ghz.....
