    It's great how you can't find this video when you search for "riser" or the text in the thumbnail... Saw this in my recommendations, but refreshed the page before I watched it.

    This is hilarious... oh the similarities.
    Many years ago I switched from pc to a Macbook for schoolwork and entertainment. Gaming continued on my good old windows pc, that I put together all by my self. Gradually I got older (yes that happens) and did not have much time for gaming, nor the money to keep updating a MacBook and a gaming pc at the same time. This resulted in a full tower pc standing under my desk with outdated hardware and not seeing much use. This Christmas I’ve been cleaning out all my files on the pc in order to retire it completely. I can not remember when I actually made any use of it last time.
    The specs were:
    MOTHERBOARD: Asus P4C800-e deluxe (same as in video)
    CPU: Intel Pentium 4 HT “Northwood”, 3.000 GHz, Model 2, Rev. D1 (might be the one first mentioned in the video)
    GRAPHIC CARD: ATI Radeon X850 (originally had the same as in video, but it fried the PSU as described in video)
    RAM: 3Gb (2x 1gb Kingston DDR400 Pc3200 + 2x 500mb GEIL DDR500 pc4000 with heatsink and a thermal sticker that changed color at 45, 50, 55 and 60 degree Celsius)
    Sound card, with surround
    4x HDD (1.160gb total)
    Floppy drive
    Cd drive
    DVD drive
    All installed in a Thermaltake Xaser V Wingo V8000a (teenage me: awesome lights, lets add more UV)

    Where is PART2? I wanted you to ultra overclock the CPU but use the best cooling solutions and see how high you can get and how does it effect performance.

    I still use such a Pentium 4 HT (3.0 GHz) with 1280 MB of DDR (400 MHz) during ~1 hour each week. The midi tower is from a Compaq Evo and it has two stickers; Pentium 4 and Windows 98/2000. The mother board is from a HP D530 SFF with a BIOS date of 2003. It has a DVD ROM (a CD R/W and a 1.4 MB floppy drive both not connected). It has a 250 GB and 320 GB IDE HDD and two laptop 320 GB HDDs at a SATA-1 plug, in total 1.2 TB. It has a new iTech 600 Watt power supply of $15 with 2 IDE and 2 SATA plugs :)
    The system runs FreeBSD 12.1. I use it to backup my Ryzen desktop once a week using the snapshot based incremental backup of ZFS. This ultra modern file system is supported by both 64-bits Ubuntu 19.10 (Linux; Oct 2019) and 32-bits FreeBSD 12.1 (Unix; Dec 2019). The 1 Gbps Ethernet connection is limited to ~200 Mbps by the 95% load of one of the CPU-threads.
