Upgrade!

From FX-4100 to Phenom II X6 and Raijintek got design flaw removal!
Now air goes thru the cooler and doesn't escape before even cooling it down!

Printed Raijintek logo and laminated the paper

Glued it together!

Got 10 °C lower temps with 30 more W TDP (and overclocked X6 to 4 GHz when I need it and 3.8 for regular use)!

Contactor doing the "logic" for fans, one fan or all fans; just because I like the THUMP that it makes when switching:

did the SSD make it feel like a new system.
I had an SSD before but it was an old Kingston SATA SSD that had read speed of not even 500 MB/s. This has cap of PCIe 2.0 which is 1.3 GB/s. System loading seems the same but games - holy smokes! Loading times are not that and even FPS is smoother. I'm loving it.
