Haha, that was quick! Yeah, I've been working on small parts of it
for a few weeks now, but I didn't want to start the log until I had actually
some proper material to post. Plus, I had to register the domain name, set
up the web server and write those few scripts.

Looking forward to seeing it all up and running.
I was savoring the moment and being extra careful not to slip with the screw
driver. I did slip once, and was very impressed by the paint job's steadfast
refusal to be scratched.

The quality on these Caselabs cases really is phenomenal. It doesn't
translate into pictures very well, but the central frame of the case is
ridiculously sturdy, especially for its comparably low weight (the case isn't
really light, but low weight for how sturdy it is).

Thanks guys. After pouring so much resources into a build and encountering
so many obstacles and delays, support really does mean a lot

I'll be redoing the workshop in our apartment over the weekend with my dad
(had to work in the living room until now), so starting next week I should be
able to begin with some proper tool work and painting the first bits with the
copper spray paint I got.

So long,
-aw

Wish I had the space and money to build something like this. It'll be great to see it take shape and see how it performs.

Yeah it does consume an immense amount of resources. Even under ideal
conditions (i.e. without having gotten sick) it would still have been a massive
undertaking for me, both financially and with regards to invested time.
Especially considering that before the SMH10 came out I would have done
a scratchbuild

The SR-2 really was a very unique piece of kit that came along just at the
right time. I think it will be quite a while before anything gets as legendary
a reputation again.

Sure, the Asus dual Xeon board is absolutely epic (and I'd say probably quite
a bit better than the SR-2, and not just because of the new chips), but since
Intel have taken out the possibility of overclocking via BClock (and hence, of
any Chip with a locked multiplier), the glamour just isn't there anymore

Of course it doesn't help that EVGA's motherboard department just up and left
(I'm sure they had their reasons, this doesn't just happen over nothing) and
what M/B's came from EVGA after the SR-2 were... underwhelming, to say the
least.

Although it might look like the new X79 Black from EVGA could finally regain
some of that quality. It seems to do well at benching, but that has little to
do with useability and stability (bugs and such) in daily usage.
I shall wait and see.

Yup a truly awesome piece of kit.

*shows his age again* I remember a board back in the late 90s that allowed you to use dual Celeron CPUs. Abit made it and it supported Celerons as well as the first flip chip P3s.

I wish more manufacturers would push the boundaries tbh. This particular Abit board cost about £10 more than a single CPU board and was timed impeccably with the release of Win 2k.

Shame really. Would love to throw two I5s together or even two I3s.

Edit. Check this article out. Pure vintage hairy porn

I remember reading about and lusting after that. Couldn't afford my own PC at
that point though.

Another one which I recall is the Asus PC-DL. The thread for that board on
cpu.com is truly epic: Started on 2003-AUG-07, and last post (so far) was
on 2013-MAR-06. 378 pages so far .

Epic Linky

Man, I think I had the Asus A7N8X Deluxe! Must go check my collection of old
M/B boxes tomorrow, if I ever had that board I'll still have the box.
Thanks for the link btw, truly awesome.
