My System Specs


Only two parts have died while folding on me so far.

My first folding machine's motherboard has a vrm cap blow up (Asus K8V Socket 754), luckily nothing else was damaged.

And tonight I had the 11 year old 20Gb IDE drive that runs my folding farm machine go to the big parts bin in the sky for good. After a brief revival the drive now sounds like a maraca if shaken and just screams if powered on, I think one of the read heads fell off or is broken and dragging across a platter.

I won't miss it, it was the noisiest part of the folding box and got hot even when idle. SATA here I come!
