Old eMachines build

by jay_red Sat Apr 06, 2019 7:24 pm

Hey guys, its been a while since I was frequenting this site, it used to be my #1 go to when I sat down at the computer. I guess things change, and I wasn't gaming as much, and my retro collecting kind of took a back seat.

Anyway, I recently started a youtube channel, and have a couple videos up. My most recent one is taking an old eMachines "never obsolete" computer and building it into a kind of sleeper. Im not going to make it too modern, more of like an early to mid 2000 powerhouse. I will go over more once I get the parts in that I have on order.

If you could give it a watch and provide any feedback I would be grateful. Any criticism is welcome!

Ahhh, a 633 MHz Celeron with Windows ME. That must have been a fun computer back in the day!

Looking forward to seeing the rest of the project. :D

Hey, looks like a Rosewill HSF! I had a similar one in a build that I did for my mom some years back. What socket is that? In fact, what are the rest of the specs? Or do we have to wait for the video?
