    Just finished with this new build and she posted for the first time yesterday afternoon. There is a little exhaust problem but she is pretty sweet.

    Congrats on that successful build! Looks like one of those that start out without a lot of expense, but end up being a real high maintenance item in a few years. ;) I've got one like that that's almost 21.

    HA! I've had that very same model just with a different case now for 13 years. Top notch if may may say so myself! No solution for the exhaust problem though. Just be careful with your temps.

    Congrats!

    Congratulations on the build. Though you will wind up doing a lot of upgrades for the next 18 or so years, it will be worth it.

    Congratulations mairving!

    She may be a "new build", but the "central processing unit" in her will never be outclassed by anything from Intel or AMD.

    Her specs are:
    8lbs. 14oz.
    20.67 in long
    Healthy with hair
    Sleeps all the time except at night

    Yep, I too am worried about all of the upgrades over the years.

    i built 6 of those, they operate just the way you want for the first 12 or 13 years then they seem to want an operating system change or something and you just can't seem to get them tweaked to do just what you want but the joy far outweighs the minor tweaks needed , and in a few years they seem to go back to normal and most of the problems disappear. congratulations.
