not much in the way of case fans either there are just 2 very small fan grills for maybe 60mm fans or something but those would have been very loud I would think

Motherboard power delivery has gone up a few notches in that time too, cleaner and more aggressive power delivery means that even a heavily overclocked X99 or Z170 chip is probably taking less voltage and generating less heat than a pre-Nahalem Pentium would :P

That reminded me of expansion slot fans. Anything to cool that sucker.

Yay to carrying more power around in your smartphone than you could previously fit into a house.

I know i'm going kinda going out of bounds here, but has anyone ever owned a Commodore 64 computer. I owned one and also had a fast loader cartridge to load up the games faster.

I also wrote my own program so that when you insert the floppy disc into the drive it would load up a menu with all the games on there with numbers next to them. To load a game all you had to do was press that number and bam it loaded.

My favorite games for the Commodore 64 were Wizball, and Moon Patrol.

I though a 286 was the cat's meow when I got one. I was in nerd heaven. Had an Atari 800 and the 512 that came out a little later. Teasers to what I have now.

Now I'm playing around with Arduino and things like that. Neat stuff. And oh so cheap.

I was a diehard C64 nut. It was a fantastic computer and I wrote lots of games on it.

In fact I sold one to Compute! magazine.

Wow thats awesome Celery...Yeah their instruction manual was very easy to understand for someone who has never programmed before.

I also found out about the trick of putting a notch on the opposite side of the floppy disc and being able to use both sides of the disc. The only thing I didn't like about the disc drive was that it always went out of alignment.

That really sucked.
