    It's been so long but I think it was a 9600XT of some description. I cant remember which brand though!

    Edit: just searched back to some forum posts from back in 2004

    athyXP 2100+
    Asus A7V333 mobo
    GeCube 9600XT

    Cheers mate, although I reckon you've gone one rig too vintage - that's a 939 (Athlon X2 / FX) motherboard with PCI-E slots, most likely an A8N-SLI Premium from the heatsink arrangement. GeCube 9600XT AIW would've been AGP unless it was one of those 'bridged' ones at the intersection :thumbup:

    Yeah i went back too far! Allegedly a Sparkle 7800gtx flashed with a modified eVga bios stock@490/1250
    Haha, I used to work at a computer store back then.
    I think it was with an a8n sli and an amd 64 3200 +

    Reckon you're on the money there, 7800 GTX PCB is a dead ringer. Would've been a solid rig for it's time - I had the same CPU with the ATi chipset board and an X1900XTX - was a beast.

    That's pretty Boss mate. :D

    The Swifty Micro-res was part of an Apogee XT "Extreme H2O" kit that was my first adventure into WC around the time I signed up here.
    The less beaten up MCR240 rad is from the same kit and was first mounted externally on a generic case using the included 'radbox'.
    The Apogee block and D5 are getting reused in my new build (eventually) but the tubing won't be Tygon this time.
    Not a bad investment for ~$200. :thumbup:

    I was working at Adelong Computers on York st in the Sydney CBD back in the heady days of C300/Athlon/Duron/BP6/A7V.
    Unfortunately I was pretty much constantly poor due to spending most of my wages on weekends which began on Thursday night and ended on Tuesday morning. :lol:
    All I could afford to do was tinker around with old Pentiums and gaze longingly at the MEGA-RIG we had on display, running the original 3Dmark on a constant loop.

    I wasn't being super-cereal about the "terms and conditions" btw, if anybody has a use for any of that old gear simply ask and you shall receive. :)

    No that's OK, of course I understand, happy to pay too.

    FWIW I've a watercooled Hackintosh which when my G5 Quad is rebuild and this machine is cannibalised for parts, means I'll have some Raadical parts to donate - anyone remember them

    If it's 1/2" ID you need to go with the res, I have a couple of short lengths I can throw in.

    Would anyone (preferably in Vic) have 2 spares of these? Half way through my first build and need these desperately. I can order replacements for someone willing to give theirs up.. thanks!

    I never heard back from mrjayviper about the bits mentioned in my previous post
    https://forums.overclockers.com.au/posts/18910129/

    So that stuff is all still hanging around if anyone wants it for any purpose. Can't be bothered editing, PM me for photos if interested.
