Mac mini (Late 2005) Processor Heatsink

I’ve used Mac mini’s a lot in my business and personal life. It’s great to be able to put such a small Mac wherever you want it and they rarely if ever have any problems.
In fact the only problem I’ve ever had with them is that they can end up getting a bit dirty especially if one has pets such as cats or dogs around.
When this 1.33GHz model tarted having some stability issues I disassembled it and cleaned it. The heat sink was almost completely blocked by a combination of hair and dust that fell away during disassembly.

This is my old rig. As you can see it’s falling apart to some extent.

The side of the case is off because the system is (unfortunately) cooler that way and the top of the case had to be rotated as the power supply would not fit with the exhaust fan.

Also, this computer attracts dust like no tomorrow. It’s impossible to keep the area nearby clean.

When I opened up the system case, man, it was so freaky dusty! When I blew it the first time, it created a heavy fog scene in my room!

I spent about 15 minutes just try to get all the dust out of the case and off the motherboard & video card. I really should clean this thing up more often from now.

A full video tour of the awesomeness of my new computer case & motherboard. Prepare to geek out at a way-too-detailed level. However… I wish something like this had existed when I was looking to seleect this case. I would have bought it much faster!! So, here you go guys: A rank amateur tour/review of your case.

This is also the first time I ever brought a computer up to speed without deploying it first: It’s sitting on my ping pong table with a wifi card in it. No wires other than power. Good thing, too, because things didn’t work out at first, I had to ship my motherboard back, and ultimately, had I deployed it before building, I would have had to deploy, undeploy, and redeploy, and that sucks. Physically getting a computer into my setup is taxing.

My case: By far the best I’ve ever owned, though it has a fatal flaw with harddrive noise in certain harddrive cages, and I wish the windows were bigger, and I wish the color-cycling could be automated. But still: This NZXT Phantom 820 Series case was $199.99 from NewEgg.

Dead EVGA GTX 660 Ti

Dead EVGA GTX 660 Ti

Putting together a used computer for my nephew who is a gamer, but does not have enough horse power in his rig to play simple MMO games.

Some signs of warping. Possibly from overheating. There was large amounts of dust in the fan.
