      if that is a X58 chipset, you should put a xeon X5670 in it 20$ form alliexpress, it has 6 core 12 threads overclocks to 4.1ghz and gets around 1k in cinebench

                          The HAF 932 was a great case at the time... bought the very nice "AMD" edition with my phenom II build and I'm still using it today with an intel CPU and nvidia GPU lol

                            I have a custom built top of the line from pc from 2007.. My friends would always play my pc because theirs sucked. Now in 2019 it's updated with windows 10 and a hd7970

                              i'm still using a pc i put together in 2008. and it's summer 2019. q6600 (g0), asus p5q-em, 4 gigs of ocz reaper (now 8). built with a 640 wd caviar black which lasted until spring of 2018 and was replaced with a 512 evo 860. powered by a corsair vx450, all in a lian li pc-ao5. oh yeah, 9600gt to an hd7850.

                              i had my first blue screen a few days ago while finally experimenting with an undervolt and overclock. i do have a complete build wish list put together on newegg, i'm just ruminating.

                                im watching this video on a mid- 2010 15 inch macbook pro. It has served me very well (oh shoot, the last three days the space bar has been stuck but typing this comment it just freed itself lol). I am about to upgrade to a windows desktop in the next few weeks.... I have to admit that i am sad to retire the old girl. It has been the most valuable and important tool i own since i bought it. I have LITERALLY spent months of my life staring at this screen. But the battery is dead, Ive replaced it and they dont seem to last and arent super cheap, Its gotten kind of slow after the past few updates, And it can barely youtube anymore. The color is broken in any browser except for firefox which is a problem i can't really wrap my head around(like weird gamma patterns and inverted colors like a film negative sorta...idk)....

                                But we have been through a hell of a lot together. But I know i will get way more power and functionality out of a decent windows desktop build. Heck Ill even be able to do some gaming:D

                                But i am emotionally attached to this laptop lol. I have become so very familiar with it and it served me extremely well for so long. It makes me happy to know this little love letter to my it will live on, buried in the comments of this video. It deserves all the praise.
