This is a rebuild of a machine I owned from New-Old-Stock!

Originally had an unbranded gaming case with blue bubble tubes and a Thermaltake Big Water Kit.

It also had several processors through its 4-5 year life span, including Duron, Sempron and Athlon.

The case could have been made by several companies, the ones most likely are:

  • Raidmax
  • Enermax
  • Skyhawk

I couldn't find an exact match but some of these are super similar so it wouldn't surprise me if this was a variant.

The gallery currently has a few photos of the original PC from back in 2002 and yes I am fully aware of how much of a mess this machine was, try to remember that I was just a young teenager on a very low income 😅

This was more than 21 years ago and this was my first truly custom-built machine.

Future upgrades

  • Ultra 320 SCSI Controller + 146GB 10K RPM Drive, which is up to twice as fast (320MB/s) as SATA-1 (150MB/s) and ATAPI-6 (100MB/s).
